In a show of solidarity with their independent developer brethren in London, Devolver Digital has offered up a Steam coupon for 50% off any game, or bundle of games, from their Steam line up for anyone who contributes at or above the ‘Duke’ tier to Firefly Studios’ Stronghold Crusader II crowdfunding campaign on Gambitious.
These games include anything Devolver will have released at the time of the campaign’s conclusion, which will include the hotly-anticipated Shadow Warrior reboot releasing this week, in addition to the entire Serious Sam series, Hotline Miami, Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition, Shadow Warrior Classic Redux, Dungeon Hearts, and Mediatonic’s Foul Play which released earlier this month. The coupon codes will be emailed to contributors upon successful conclusion of the campaign and will be good through the end of 2013.
Scheduled for release in early 2014, Stronghold Crusader 2 will be digitally self-published by Firefly Studios. Additional funding is currently being sought through a new games-centric crowdfunding platform Gambitious. Funds raised will be put toward an extended development cycle, a closed beta and additional game content.
Fans can help fund the game at http://gambitious.com/projects/2534-stronghold-crusader-2.
