Experience the peak of Brood War through the eyes of a young and idealistic up-and-comer, Sung-hwan “Bolt” Lee. Beholden to the idea that only the best players deserve to live and train in South Korea, Bolt Contends Equally with setbacks and triumphs in the chase for his eSports dreams.
Team Eleven has announced that they will be launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund the upcoming prequel to SC2VN, Don’t Forget Our eSports Dream, on April 10th. Their base funding goal will be set to $35,000 (compared to roughly $7,000 used for SC2VN), and they’re keeping all the doors open for further funding and development.
“Experience the peak of Brood War through the eyes of a young and idealistic up-and-comer, Sung-hwan “Bolt” Lee. Beholden to the idea that only the best players deserve to live and train in South Korea, Bolt contends equally with setbacks and triumphs in the chase for his eSports dreams.
At his side is Chae-young “Jett” Song, a former darling of the Korean Pro-Gaming Association and an estranged childhood friend. A year after her departure from the professional Brood War competition, Jett continues to make her living on StarCraft on low-paying local tournaments and betmatches. Together, she and Bolt strive to become champions and to resolve their differences along the way.
Journey to rival PC bangs, international tournaments, the offices of Korea’s top eSports officials, and into the booth at the highest level of professional StarCraft.”
Release has been planned for 2017 on Steam and other platforms, with the pricetag set to $14.99. So far the announced feature list is pretty standard, but it will probably be made more specific as more information about the title comes available:
- Larger gameplay and narrative scope from its predecessor (we are shooting for 3X)
- An authentic story that is true to esports fans, but also relatable to a general audience
- Player choices for both dialog and StarCraft strategy
- A glossary of StarCraft and esports terms for new players
- Galleries for character and background art
- Steam Trading Cards and Achievements
New characters will be unveiled Monday, Wednesday, and Friday leading up the Kickstarter on April 10, with additional information on community events on Twitch to help support their fundraising. Currently the two released characters are Chae-young “Jett” Song and Sung-hwan “Bolt” Lee.
