Hello NintendoLifers!

I am employee of Varia Games! I'd like to tell you all a bit about the game. ReVeN is set in the 28th century on the ‘beautiful and atmospheric’ planet XR-Keres. Players control SyRek, the last surviving autonomous android, who was adopted from a drone espionage program. As SyRek, you’ll need to explore the many worlds of XR-Keres in order to uncover secrets and unravel mysteries, all the while trying to survive against the terrors lurking beneath the planet’s picturesque surface.

While this game is Metroid inspired, it carries features unique in it's own right.

Firstly the Energy Divergence Module (E.D.M) mechanic;

The EDM allows the player to divert energy in real time to any of the four parts of SyRek's body (Weapons, Shielding, Mobility, and Sensors) taking power cores from one system and shifting them into another to overcome obstacles and defeat enemies. Want a more powerful weapon? Take energy from your movement speed and increase your damage!

One thing that makes the game unique is the Crafting and Mining that you can do. SyReK can increase his abilities with the minerals found on XR-Keres.

The Player will have to make some semi-permanent decisions on which abilities to construct. While there is nothing stopping the player from unlocking both tiers of abilities within a category, it may be worth balancing their other abilities first.

Currently our kickstarter is a little over 3k away from reaching our funding goal. We'd love to unlock all of our stretch goals in order to make the game as complete as possible. Please support!

is Team Varia related in any way to Katekyo Hitman Reborn!'s Varia assasin squad? xD
btw your project looks pretty cool

I was once a fighter in spirit alone, but not long ago I found something that was missing and became a fighter in body and mind too.
looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

Wait, is this game coming to Wii U without having to reach a stretch goal? If that is true, this might be the first Kickstarter I back since I lost my job a few months back

@DefHalan Yes were already Nintendo Developers. This is coming to Wii U without a Stretch Goal. Thank you for showing your interest. Share the word. We just did a few updates which show how unique the game really is. We are currently working on a gameplay video.
