Project Awakended seeks to revive a previously cancelled title from Midway Games which was code-named Project Hero before the studio got canned. The Kickstarter project was started by Phosphor Games Studio, a studio comprised of some former Midway members who worked on the Project Hero previously. The Kickstarter was started in an effort to allow for a full-time focus and staff to be placed on Project Awakened rather than being divided among other jobs the studio has to take in order to say afloat.
The game has a relatively simple concept – allow the player to craft their very own hero and abilities, progressing through the game the way that best suits their character’s chosen abilities. Ranging from melee combat to telekinetic powers the options are yours to choose.
The game will be built using Unreal Engine 4, Epic Game’s next-generation engine and is slated for an August 2014 closed beta test on the PC.
