MEG: RVO is our first step towards building a video game universe in which Slate Kinetic, a sinister corporate entity, is training remote vehicle operators to explore alternate worlds.
MEG: RVO is a top-down, online multiplayer game that combines action and strategy for an intense and addictive gaming experience.
The initial version of MEG: RVO will be for iPad 3 (retina display) and up.
- Operate Rigs, futuristic combat vehicles, and customize them with a wide variety of weapons and defensive systems.
- Use the MEG, a robotic support unit, to construct tactical defenses such as turrets, barriers, and mines.
- Control territory by capturing strategic points and securing them against opposing players and enemy AI.
- Earn experience and SKN, Slate company currency, to enhance your profile and access new environments and better equipment.
Your pledges will primarily go towards creating a new Challenge-Zone-Map. The map would be an additional/new map/zone. Basically a new "level" at a larger scale which we don't currently have budget for allowing to start expanding the game's universe.
Your pledges will also go towards increasing our marketing efforts and brand exposure. These marketing plans include attendance at PAX (Seattle) and PAX East (Boston) which will give us the opportunity to present the current version of MEG: RVO to industry peers and fellow gamers.

Risks and challenges
The current iteration of MEG: RVO will be submitted to Apple in Fall 2013. With funding in place from Canada Media Fund, IRAP, the founders and private investors, we are currently working on the next iterations toward a final release.
The two biggest challenges we face are marketing, and player adoption. To mitigate these challenges, we are seeking a dedicated core of beta testers to help with the ongoing development of MEG: RVO. Given our established financial backing, it is very likely that Skunkwerks Kinetic will complete the final project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
