Last Limb let us know that a Kickstarter campaign for its physics puzzle game Organic Panic is underway and has raised $7,000 of its $40,000 goal. The game, which has been in development for five years, is the brainchild of Brooklyn-based studio Last Limb.
The company was founded by industry veterans Damon and Anatole Branch in 2009. Damon Branch is a game programmer and designer who has worked in the video game industry for nearly 20 years. He has developed games and simulations for such companies as Ford Motor Company, HBO, Take Two, Microsoft, and EA. His brother Anatole is an artist specializing in 3D modeling and animation who has worked for a number of game studios in the UK before setting up Pukka Games with his brother Damon. He moved to New York in 2007 where we worked on a number of freelance art projects including internet start-ups and TV commercials. He reunited with Damon in 2009 to set up Last Limb.
Organic Panic is being described as a game that could be the lovechild of Worms and Little Big Planet. In the game players control armies comprised of either meat and cheese or fruits and vegetables. Much like Worms, players use weapons and power-ups to defeat enemies from the opposing team, while avoiding and taking advantage of various environmental hazards and the resulting effects of the game's physics system.
The game will be released first on the PC, with tentative plans for release on Xbox 360, Mac, IOS, Android devices, Ouya, WII U, PSN, & PS Vita – contingent on hitting various stretch goals, of course. The latest build of the game will be shown at PAX in August.
