Epoch: Return from Innate Games, made up of various developers including former Bioware staffers, has launched on Kickstarter.

The team needs $150,000 to develop the title, and so far, $85 has been pledged with 29 days left.

Here’s a short list of features:

  • Moving, personal story designed by industry veterans of such titles as Mass Effect and Halo 4, where the player gets the final say
  • First-person terrain traversal gameplay — leap, slide, and slope-run across the barren landscape
  • Freedom to explore an enormous alien world and discover its secrets however the player wishes
  • Epic, symphonic-electronic soundtrack of haunting themes, using live instruments and analog synthesizers
  • Vivid and impactful visual design inspired by classic animation to encourage curiosity and inspire exploration
  • Narrative Design integrated across all disciplines to focus on immersion and emotional engagement

Epoch: Return is slated for a Q1 2015 release on PC, but the game’s size and release platforms other than PC are possible depending on how much funding is acquired through Kickstarter.
