A little extreme, perhaps, to hinge the existence of a higher power on the funding for a video game project, but this isn't your average Kickstarter. It's for a game that is, in everthing but name, a new Syndicate title. So it's important.

I wrote about Satellite Reign a few weeks back, but the team have since released a video showing, if not what the game actually looks like, what they're planning on making the game look like. And it looks...just like Syndicate. Maybe a little too purple and bloomy to be perfect (the original had a wonderfully orange, gritty feel), but it still looks great.

The game's just a bit short of its initial Kickstarter goal. Hopefully over the next seven days it can get over the line.
