Development studio Codeglue launched its crowdfunding campaign on Fig today for Antegods, the ‘stonepunk’ action arena game in which the remnants of the Mayan civilization have taken to space. Climbing inside their customizable stonepunk mechs, the pilots of each team need to hunt for energy and fight off opponents in a procedurally generated and highly destructible map. The ultimate goal is to activate enormous ‘titan’ statues that will bring explosive mayhem down upon the enemy team.

Codeglue is honored to be picked by the Fig platform to speed up the development of Antegods. With an additional $75,000 in funding, a Spring 2018 release is made possible, by bringing on extra resources such as another programmer. As a community-powered publisher specialized in games, Fig is the perfect partner for this campaign offering both rewards and investment-based crowdfunding.
Fig CEO Justin Bailey says; ‘’With Codeglue’s extensive history of producing great games, it’s clear that this is a project with huge potential, and we’re excited to be on board!”
The campaign offers an exclusive reward when pledging $35 or more: a comic book set in the stonepunk world of Antegods. This unique setting makes this game a surprising successor to Codeglue’s previous title, the award-winning fast-paced action game Rocket Riot. Antegods expands on its predecessor with team-based tactical gameplay and highly customizable stonepunk mechs. The game has already won a range of awards such as the GDC ‘European Showcase 2017’, Insomnia58 ‘Indie Zone Selection 2016’ and the Nordic Game ‘Indie Day Selection 2016’.
