Today the upcoming drone warfare game "Death from Above" by developer Rockodile Games and publisher Lesser Evil passed its funding goal on Kickstarter.

Backers surpassed the €25,000 required for the campaign to be successful, and the total is sitting at €25,456 on Kickstarter at the moment of this writing, with seven days to go before the campaign ends. 


The developers celebrated the result with the announcement that the first stretch goal will soon be revealed. The funds provided by the Kickstarter campaign will pay for a custom outro and intro designed by Ukrainian artist Nazar Davydenko, the soundtrack, and voiceovers in Ukrainian, while the enemies will be voiced in Russian. 

Speaking of the soundtrack, we also hear that the famous Ukrainian band Antytila will compose the theme song for the game. The song will also be made available on streaming services like Spotify, Youtube, Apple Music, and Deezer. 

You may know Antytila for their recent success "Bakhmut Fortress" or the seven albums the band produced in its career since 2008. 


The announcement came with a statement from the band's leader Taras Topolia. 

"This is an interesting experience for us. Moreover, our team loves computer games and understands how it all works, what a great community there is in this field in Europe and the world. It is important that European developers are ready to support Ukraine and, most importantly, the Ukrainian army in their own way. By playing this game, gamers will automatically support our defense complex! As for the song, it will probably be the "hardest" composition in our work and is not at all similar to our previous ones. It may surprise our fans, but you will understand everything when you see this game and combine it with the sound. In the game, the song will be played in two languages, Ukrainian and English." 

Death from Above is coming to PC with a release window in June 2023. You can support the game on Kickstarter. Ukrainian charities Army of Drones and Come Back Alive will receive 30% of net proceeds from Steam sales and 70% after the game breaks even.
