Sword of Fargoal 2 Kickstarter Campaign Begins

If you’re old enough, you may have fond memories of playing (and dying in) the 1982 game Sword of Fargoal. A couple of years ago, developer Jeff McCord rebooted the game for iOS, and we liked it quite a bit. Now McCord and a few others want to make a sequel, and they’ve turned to Kickstarter for funding.

Sword of Fargoal is a roguelike, meaning the levels are randomly generated, it’s extremely challenging, and if you die, you have to start over from the very beginning. With the sequel, McCord and company hope to bring more of everything:

A reimagining of the game– with more spells. More monsters. More traps. Better graphics. More music. Animation. New characters types. New quests. A new dungeon-generation system, and much more. Basically to keep the fun and excitement of the original, but reinvent the game for 2012 & 2013, with more depth and rich gameplay; more adventure, exploration, mystery; plus new character classes.

Check the Kickstarter page for full details, and help fund the game if you’re so moved.
