Iqioi Co., Ltd
, a new Japanese indie game developer, has launched a Kickstarter campaign
to raise funds for its steampunk adventure game, Blackmore
. Well-known game writer and director, Jeremy Blaustein, will be working with some notable talent including voice work by David Hayter (Snake in the Metal Gear Solid series), character design by Satoshi Yoshioka (Snatcher, Policenauts) and music by Motoaki Furukawa (Snatcher and many others). This will mark the first time that Blaustein, Yoshioka and Furukawa have worked together since Snatcher and the first time for Blaustein and Hayter to work together since the very first Metal Gear Solid.
Blackmore is set in an alternative universe London of 1888. The heroine of the game is a young woman named Emma Blackmore who, along with Descartes, her robot companion, must use their wits and gadgets to solve the Whitechapel murders before time runs out.
