Kickstarter Launched For Isometric Mech Shooter "Antraxx"

A new Kickstarter just launched hoping to let gamers re-live the SNES Battletech era with a next generation online mech shooter inspired by the likes of Front Mission and Metal Slug. Check out the announcement trailer for "Antraxx" below, which features an electronic metal-inspired soundtrack.

All info on the crowd funding campaign can be found here (and if online-only games aren't your thing, a single player campaign is included in the stretch goals). The developers also comment on the game's background and story:

"Countless generations ago, mankind unleashed a devastating plague upon itself. Technology was developed to the point of perfection, wars were won in days and fought with squadrons of giant, piloted mechs. Nations grew greedy, their thirst for land and power was never quenched and almost all of Earth's resources were diminished.

"After generations of war, desperate for a resolve and each side too arrogant for a peace treaty, they began to research a type of weapon that no amount of armour or firepower could save the fragile human body from. Wave after wave of biological weapons were released - thousands of species extinct, the air left un-breathable, cities vacant and what was left of humanity had to live underground in bunkers. Any trace of government slowly dissolved, morals tossed aside for resources, land and weaponry.

"Many factions spawned as a result, humanity divided yet all living for the same purpose - to survive. Stuck in a perpetual war, will mankind exterminate themselves or find peace? You decide."
