Nekro - Shiva3d developed PC title reaches crowdfunding target

This post is basically a quick congratulations to darkForge for successfully getting their action game Nekro crowdfunded over at Kickstarter They passed their target of $100,000 with 4 days still to go. My main interest in the project is its use of Shiva3d - an extremely underrated and less well known multi-platform game engine. The game is scheduled to be released on PC, Mac and Linux currently.
Nekro is an overhead, randomly generated action game about summoning evil forces of darkness to do your bidding!
Hailing from the era of great classics such as Myth: The Fallen Lords, Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Dungeon Keeper and more, we are creating a game rooted deep in PC gaming's history, but with all the flourishes you've come to expect from a modern experience.
Combining full HD graphics, a unique premise, solid gameplay, and tight controls Nekro can be one hell of a game - but not without you...

Anyway, congratulations and good luck to darkForge.
