Indie Fighter Air Dash Online Hits Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight, Gets Playable Prototype

on October 14, 2013 7:27 PM

Some exciting developments have transpired concerning Air Dash Online, the indie fighter and debut project from upstart JV5 Games. As promised back in May, a Kickstarter campaign has finally launched for the game. Fans have pledged $5,080 at the time of this writing, and the end stretch goal is $355,555. The Kickstarter will continue for 27 more days, ending on November 10th.

Here’s the video:

Air Dash Online is also now on Steam Greenlight, meaning that you can let Valve know if you’d be interested in buying this game (if it gets funded and completed). A positive response will probably increase our chances of seeing the game on the Steam Store, so voice your opinion right here.

So, despite all of this progress the game has made, you still may not have seen or heard very much about it. To that end the Kickstarter page contains a wealth of information about the game, the characters and mechanics and all of the developers. A game-play video for the title was also released a few days ago, and you can view that at the end of this article.

But what if just learning about and viewing early footage of the game isn’t enough to convince you to support it? Maybe playing a very early prototype of Air Dash Online would be more convincing? If that is the case, then you’ll be happy to know that JV5 has today launched a playable prototype. You’ll need to install the Unity Web Player to try the game and the website contains everything you’ll need to know about the controls and the game’s mechanics.

JV5 also released some character cards and stage art, for you to better familiarize yourselves with the game’s currently revealed cast. View all of this below. We’ll keep you updated on new developments.
