Some former League of Legends devs have come together to form Windwalk Games, and have announced their first game, Enemy On Board. This is one of those multiplayer deception games where certain people are working against the rest to win the game, while the others have to suss them out. The devs will be launching a Kickstarter for it soon to get some funding, but in the meantime, here's more info about the announcement.
Colin Feo, a former Riot Games game designer, and CEO of Windwalk Games noted that the Company is turning to Kickstarter due to the strength of its backer community. He notes, "Kickstarter historically has been a great place to find those awesome, ride or die community members who can help us make Enemy on Board great." Enemy on Board has succeeded early by building a significant community organically and listening for feedback. He stated, "We read every message in our Discord and regularly integrate our community's feedback into the game."
Additionally, the Kickstarter funding will allow Enemy On Board to be developed independently. Windwalk plans to update the game's environmental art, sound design and improve the UI.
