Storm Isle Announces Kickstarter to Update Classic MOBA NetStorm

          New Martinsville, WV (August 14, 2014) - Storm Isle Productions has announced their Kickstarter campaign for  Disciples of the Storm, an indie reboot of the 1996 critically-acclaimed multiplayer game  NetStorm.   NetStorm  is one of the ancestors of today’s MOBAs like  League of Legends and  DOTA.

          Like the original game  Disciples the Storm has been described as a strategy tower defense meets tower offense game. The game is set in a fantasy world shattered by a war of the gods. Cast into the sky, these fragmented shards create a new battleground where the survivors, led by high priests of the primal elemental powers, now fight using magic and machines for control of land and resources.

          Disciples the Storm is a fantasy real time strategy game for PC updated using modern 3D graphics and artificial intelligence.

          Assisting Storm Isle Productions is the original art director Beverly Garland ( Ultima seriesCrusader: No Remorse)  and concept artist Morgan Ogburn ( Ultima 9, Resident Evil 5, TRON: Legacy) who are working with the studio on shaping the art direction of the game.

          Disciples the Storm is being developed on Unity3D initially targeting a PC release.

          Storm Isle Productions is currently running their Kickstarter to raise the needed funding for pushing further development. Mac and Linux builds will follow depending on their success of the campaign.

          The Kickstarter campaign can be viewed at www.kickstarter.com/projects/525138512/disciples-of-the-storm
