More importantly they want you to give money to their cause in exchange for a promise, the promise being that they will release a completely awesome game...sometime in the future.
Do you wish to know more?
Ah, good ol' Starship Troopers...Anyway the gist is that to convince you they mean business they've released a few "mini" games over the last 12 months which were pretty fun. Namely Bullseye, a shooting range with a pretty awesome RPG like leveling system and more recently Running Man where you undertake a training exercise against suicidal battle droids.
It looks like they're gearing up for 2011 now with a new trailer and an announced multiplayer experience to come soonish. But why listen to me when you can listen to the guys themselves in this brand spanking new
Looking good, and I have bought a support medal myself (so I could play Running Man earlier :D ) but I'm still very slightly skeptical about the whole thing for now. Until I see signs of the final game being made I'll always have a very slight doubt in my head that the project will be finished...
Anyway, why not visit the official site over here!
