PARIS (AUGUST 7th, 2014) -- Lightbulb Crew, an independent game studio currently developing its first title, has gotten commitments of additional financing in order to fund its upcoming, genre-busting Games of Glory.

"We are continuing to develop the game together with our community and would like to thank everyone who has made this possible by supporting us. We look forward to releasing Games of Glory with many advanced features."

Kickstarter backers will be able to claim a free backer kit that includes early access to the game. Backers can also maintain a version of their original pledge through Games of Glory's website (http://lightbulbcrew.fr/gamesofglory/shop/) until the originally scheduled end date of the Kickstarter, August 21 2014.

ABOUT GAMES OF GLORY
In Games of Glory the players participate in intense arena battles that decide the future of the galactic empire, the Synarchy. Games of Glory presents a major difference in the way battle arenas have traditionally been played, by combining Hack & Slash controls, free aiming à la shooters, and an arsenal of more than 40 weapons to choose from. E-Sport is a part of the setting, and players have the ability to choose to enact different roles within the e-sport universe, such as star player, tournament planner, club head, trainer, recruiter, and more.
