Indie developer Nerd Kingdom has taken to the popular crowd-funding website Kickstarter in hopes of garnering support for their upcoming title TUG. Offering an interesting twist on the open-world sandbox-RPG genre that titles like Minecraft or Terraria made popular, TUG is described as a "massive procedurally-generated world to explore, full of mystery and danger." What exactly TUG offers though is up to you, with a large incentive on the player developing the world through in-game participation.
TUG sits at the crossroads where survival sandbox and multiplayer RPG’s meet, offering both elegant simplicity and a world of complex secrets for those who desire to seek them out. From freezing snow capped mountains to dark dreary caves, TUG offers a massive procedurally-generated world to explore, full of mystery and danger -- but what makes TUG truly unique is its ability to help us learn what you as players enjoy about the game, and to use your interactions to make an amazing world even better.

The project draws inspiration from fun, accessible games we love such as Minecraft, Fable, Animal Crossing, and Zelda, as well as games that feature deeply complex worlds, including Eve Online, Monster Hunter, and Dwarf Fortress.
The developers explain the game in detail, with a healthy amount of prototype gameplay footage that offers a comprehensive overview of its key play mechanics including a very strong message of support for those on the modding scene.

TUG is hoping to hit their funding goal of $215,000, aiming for a release on PC in 2015. Those who back any of the reward tiers higher then $95 will gain access to alpha builds of the game, with the first planned for launch on July of this year. You can check out the pitch video below which highlights just how many of their team members hold doctorates, which are definitely a lot. Hit up their Kickstarter page for the full run down of just what to expect from TUG, a title you'll definitely want to keep an eye out for.
