Nekro is a cancelled action video game from darkForge that was successfully crowd-funded through Kickstarter. Playing as a necromancer character, players conquer empires while controlling evil minions.[1] Gameplay areas are randomly generated,[2] with an overhead perspective.[3] Linking the game to Dungeon Keeper, Forbes described the goal of the game as "you’re the villain and it’s your job to sow chaos and destruction."[4] Gaming website Joystiq describes the game's developers as finding a "happy medium between hellish gore and shiny-happy creatures".[5]
