A new Fig crowdfunding campaign has opened for Obelus, which is described as an "intense arcade combat sidescroller with a thought provoking narrative". 

Created by Springloaded, Obelus places you in the shoes of Dave an interplanetary insurance salesman who finds himself "travelling and fighting aggressive fauna across the galaxy" with only his company-approved mech AI to keep him company.

The pixel-heavy visuals looks swish, and the soundtrack is shaping up to be something pretty special, too. The game's proposed platforms are Steam and Switch, but - depending on the success of the campaign - it could come to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as well.

At the time of writing, Obelus has raised just over $11,000 of its $50,000 goal.
