Genocide Dolphins – Scottish Indie Dev Kickstarting Surreal Shooter Of Ultimate Oddness

Genocide DolphinsRadiant Silverlabs, the studio created by veteran developer Gareth Murphin has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund… something.

The project, Genocide Dolphins, has started to pick up some attention from the indie games media and is generating a lot of buzz from players looking for something new.

The game looks odd.  Weird in fact.  In a good way.  A surreal, cartoon and cel-shaded environment, combined with real world locations, seriously peculiar characters and a promise of ‘strategic explosions’ and ‘very advanced enemy AI’.

Gaz, the man behind the project writes on the project’s Kickstarter page:

If the funding is reached I intend to buy lots more cool things to use, advanced AI, more enemies, shadows etc. I would also like to buy Unity Pro ($1500) since it contains a profiler which is almost essential to get the game running smoothly on mobile devices. I will also need to purchase/upgrade the licenses for each platform I am supporting ($400 each).

In short I want to allow this game to evolve into something very special, then get it in the hands of gamers! As you can see the game is quite far advanced already – I estimate I can buy what I need and finish the game within 5 months. During this time I will be working full time on it – and it would be the most enjoyable full-time job I ever had 🙂

Go and help out if you can…
