FranknJohn is the failed creation of the scientist Dr Harmin, who happens to be a little on the mad side, and has a key weapon at its disposal, its head. Players will literally have to use their head to smash away the weird and wacky creatures that are found in the fun-house as they attempt to confront their creator.
Games such as Dark Souls, The Binding of Isaac and Zombies Ate My Neighbours are listed as inspiration, which gives a pretty good indication of what the game will be like. Loot and customisation plays a pretty big part with players able to swap out bodies and skullcaps, getting access to different bonuses and abilities as a result.
The Kickstarter campaign features plenty of pre-alpha footage, details about the game, and introduces us to the members of bitSmith Games. A successful campaign will see the team moving on to the game full time and building a community.
