Red Ash - Play the Pre-Alpha Mockup Today!
Red Ash backers and skeptics, take note. Comcept has released a playable build of the Red Ash mockup developed by HYDE, Inc. You can directly download it to your PC or play it in your browser via Unity web player. You'll find a rundown of both keyboard and game pad controls here. It's free to play for everyone, even if you're not a backer.
Before you download, be aware this is a mockup in every sense of the word. It's pre-alpha for demonstrative purposes. Although Red Ash is a third person shooter, no gunplay is present here. The mock-up is restricted to exploring a small world, interacting with townsfolk, objects, and discovering hidden secrets lurking in the shadows. The presentation is a little rough around the edges but that's expected at this point in development.
This is a pretty nice surprise from Comcept. But once again I feel its arrival is a little too late in the campaign. I don't know if it will be enough to revive pledges.
Red Ash currently sits at $477,936 of its $800,000 goal. Five days to go.
