Umbra’s Apocalyptic Form Revealed, New Stretch Goal Met

The post-funding torrent of information continues to spill out for action RPG Umbra, which had its Apocalyptic form explained in a recent Kickstarter update.

The form, which you could consider to be Umbra’s version of a “Limit Break” or a version of Diablo 3‘s Crusader go-to skill “Akarat’s Champion”, is a nearly invincible temporary mode you turn on that has a very long cooldown rate. Long enough to make it a power that is best reserved for bosses or extraordinarily tough mobs.

The form can be modified with power-ups that are found in the course of your adventure, with your character allowed to use three of them at once to form their own unique version of the form. Some add-ons increase dodge rate while others will add elemental immunities that do damage as well as nullify.

There’s also the issue of Stretch Goals, one more of which has been unlocked: The Expanded Side Quests goal.

    More than 8,000 backers for over $280,000 in pledges! Let’s keep moving to the next pair of stretch goals for a new Kickstarter-exclusive shield and for the Global Leaderboard!
    Since you’ve now unlocked the Expanded Side-Quests Pool Stretch Goal, we’ll be able to add more content to the game! You will now see a larger variety of random events as you play Umbra, making it a bigger and better experience! Enemies may ambush you, you may be trapped in a room while the undead rise around you, a villager may request you to save them in the middle of the wild, you might need to collect an artifact before it is destroyed by enemies, and much more!

Umbra currently sits at $309,766 in funding and is only 11K away from it’s next stretch goal, “Hero Defense Mode” which adds a multiplayer option to the game in the form of a small tower defense game. You can find the game’s Kickstarter campaign here.
