Orc Attacks Seeks Allies on Kickstarter

We've been following Orc Attack since its announcement at the beginning of the year. A lighthearted and fantasy themed beat-em-up, it looks like good fun (especially with the addition of "Magic Mode").

As such, they've turned to Kickstarter to seek the remaining funds needed to complete their multiplatform game.
