Independent developer Hit the Sticks has today announced that their Kickstarter efforts for 2.5 dimensional Metroidvania physics platformer Mark of the Old Ones has now reached over 75%, with just over two days left to go for crowd funding to hit the $46,000 goal.

In Mark of the Old Ones, players explore Namaset, a cavernous metropolis underneath a mountain built for Kraal, "a great and eternal being." Players take on the role of the powerful Mogal to traverse the "shunned and long banished civilization" and "unwind the mistakes of eons past." It also takes some rather generous inspirations from Metroid, Zelda and the works of HP Lovecraft, combined with dynamic inverse kinematic gameplay.

"Mogal was never touched by an artist. An artist never gave Mogal a model or a rig. An artist never animated Mogal," creator Jordan Brock wrote. "100 percent of Mogal's animation is done in real-time, based off of the input that YOU give to the analogue sticks. That means that you aren't limited to walking, running, ducking, jumping, shooting (the typical animations/actions a character would be able to perform in a typical game). With no pre-baked animations, and everything under your control in can do basically anything you could do with a pair of arms in real life."

Mark of the Old Ones is in development for Windows PC, Mac and Linux. Releasing the game on Steam is being considered and the team is also interested in releasing on SteamOS. It also has aspirations of launching on PS4 but can not confirm anything. At this stage, "hundreds of puzzles and obstacles" are already created for the game that require more testing and artwork. You can find the pitch video below, or head over to the Kickstarter for more on the title including reward tiers.
