Alice & Smith, the team behind The Black Watchmen and Ahnayro, are excited to announce that a Kickstarter campaign has successfully launched for NITE Team 4. In less than 24 hours, the campaign raised more than 50% of the funding goal!
The developers also invite members of the community to vote on the direction of the game during the month of September. Over the course of the Kickstarter, three main story campaigns will be unveiled, all based on actual cyber-security scenarios, and the backers will be given the chance to decide which narrative is further developed.
