Looks pretty cool, although the lack of a lock-on could make mouse controls very advantageous. I like the look and vibe.

Concept looks neat, but I don't know about giving any money to someone who just graduated college last year. He also has a politically correct agenda, believing games should be used as a platform to educate people instead of just merely being entertainment.

Reading through my classmates’ blog posts and listening to in-class discussions one thing appeared abundantly evident to me. Despite trying to be an understanding person, aware of others’ issues and problems, I remain ignorant of many issues that do not pertain to myself. I had always thought the overly sexualized nature of female characters in most video games mainstream video games today was silly, but I never saw it as such a troublesome issue. Partly because I assumed that most people who play video games simply don’t care. Thinking back, I’m almost ashamed to think that because people don’t care, they didn’t need to be exposed to another perspective. What I’m getting at is that, exactly BECAUSE the video game industry is full of young male customers, the vision and perspective they see needs to be altered not to serve them, but to educate them. The video game industry is actually the perfect platform, because within it exist a vast majority of ignorant males who need exposure to something other than fanservice, who need to start being counter-indoctrinated, and liberated from their simple minds.

Granted, the above could have simply been written to pass this laughable course, as his earlier posts focus primarily on game mechanics and immersion and showing his love for Dark Souls. He does seem to use a lot of buzzwords in this blog post that would probably please his instructor. However, I'd still be wary of such a young person without any project management experience successfully delivering a crowdfunded project, regardless.
