FPS Arena shooter LEAP OF CHAMPIONS - Kickstarter campaign begins April 26th, 2017.

Old-fashioned FPS arena shooter made in Italy seeks 15.000€ in 30 days.

Rome, April 12 th, 2017 – LEAF games and software are proud to announce the launch of their Kickstarter campaign for Leap of Champions , an FPS arena shooter combining the speed, the precision and the mechanics of a 90s shooter with high quality Sci-Fi graphics.

Leap of Champions stays true to the core Arena FPS features that all fans of the genre love. Put in the field your strategy, your ability, adrenaline, tension and reflexes. You will be pushed to your limits in a range of rich and various environments for a truly satisfying game experience based on your skills and abilities.

In Leap of Champions newcomers and hardcore Arena FPS veterans can enjoy the most thanks to the implemented matchmaking system. Game after game, climbing the ranks, you will have the opportunity to face players the same level of experience, so that everyone is assured a fun and satisfying gaming experience.

The game's most awaited feature is the brand new game mode called “ Ritual”. In this spectacular multiplayer mode the player, solo or team, has to complete a minimum number of kills to charge a bar. Once the upload is complete, the altar in the map will be activated and the accumulated energy will have to be released in it as sacrifice to complete and win the match.

After almost a year in the making, LEAF games and software has taken the last stretch of the game's development to Kickstarter, seeking €15,000 to bring their game to the market. LEAF games and software hopes to finish the rest of the game with real-time feedbacks from players. “ We want to keep this open to realize the best game for the players” say Michele Calandriello and Nicola Coiro, LEAF games and software co-founders, because " We love the idea of a game connecting players all over the world like Unreal Tournament and Doom have made during the years”.

Fans of Unreal tournament and Doom and lovers of multiplayer online shooters can back Leap of Champions on Kickstarter from April 26 th for 30 days. The Kickstarter campaigns runs together with the STEAM Greenlight campaign. Leap of Champions Windows® version release is set approximately to Q3 2017.
