While some folks are happy enough with using a games controller for almost anything from driving to shooting to almost anything, including fighting with a sword! However, the guy behind CLANG, Neal Stephenson is not having any of that and it is his goal to produce a realistic sword fighting game. The trouble is he need funding and has chosen Kickstarter to do get the job done. Currently they are about a third of the way to the goal of $500,000, but there are only 28 days to go, on guard!
According to Neal Stephenson’s words on the Kickstarter site, he says that;
In the last couple of years, affordable new gear has come on the market that makes it possible to move, and control a swordfighter’s actions, in a much more intuitive way than pulling a plastic trigger or pounding a key on a keyboard. So it’s time to step back, dump the tired conventions that have grown up around trigger-based sword games, and build something that will enable players to inhabit the mind, body, and world of a real swordfighter.
In order to get your hands on a download of CLANG (When it’s ready!) you only have to back the project to tune of £16 or $25.
