Enlightened Games is seeking $150,000 to fund its personally inspired 3D-adventure, Bliss, the game's Kickstarter page revealed last week.
Bliss draws inspiration from Lead Designer Eric Blomquist's personal struggle with anxiety. The game follows the protagonist's ascent from rock bottom on a sprawling quest through the landscape of Nexus to heal and live well. Seven statues and their corresponding doors will be scattered across Nexus, each of which will bear a set of challenges related to the statue's crisis. Aiding a statue by overcoming these obstacles will reward players with new abilities like sprinting and manipulating objects.
The Bliss Kickstarter campaign ends on September 6 and the game will launch by April 2014 if funded, but a demo is available on the game's Kickstarter page right now for Windows, Mac and Linux.
