Kitfox Games managed to get their Kickstarter off to a great start for their four-player co-op RPG called Moon Hunters. The game is an interesting take on the traditional adventure format, insofar that players will focus on building a mythology within a procedural world. Imagine a game like Final Fantasy where you craft the structure of the world with your actions and your legacy becomes that world's history.
At the time of the writing of this article, the game has already managed to accrue $19,363 in crowd-sourced funding with 29 days to go. They're working on a $45,000 goal and they still need your help to make the game become a reality.
As mentioned in the video, the game is designed to be played with up to four-players but it was also designed to be a standalone title for a single-player experience, too. This means that even if you're a lonely fox you can still enjoy everything the game has to offer from start to finish without worrying about the game feeling incomplete or ill-suited for a solo playthrough. And, of course, when you eventually join a pack of other foxes you can then invite them over to join you in your Moon Hunters experience.
The game sports four different character classes, the Witch, the Spellblade, the Occultist and the Druid.
Each character class can be upgraded and outfitted with each of the elements, but as mentioned on the Kickstarter page, the characters will have specific affinities with certain skills over the others.
You can also listen to a teaser track for the game from music artists Ryan Roth and Halina Heron, just to give you a bit of an idea of what the rest of the soundtrack will be like when the game preps to launch next summer on Steam.
Moon Hunters is one of the early projects that utilized Square Enix's The Collective as a sort of media launching pad to help gather community support and gamer interest before heading to Kickstarter.
Given the strong start after only being up for a day, it's somewhat of a revelation that maybe The Collective can be used for the good of indie devs after all... maybe? The verdict is still out but Moon Hunters seems to be on the fast track to success, and that's a good thing for gamers looking to get in on a new-school, co-op RPG with some old-school tendencies.

If you need a playable taste of what the team is working on before you commit any of your money to the cause, designer Tanya Short and Brent Ellison from Kitfox churned out a small vertical slice you can check out called Dungeons of Fayte.
