    We want to take Awesomenauts to the next level, with characters, features, a new map, and more! Join us to make this happen!

    Do you want more Awesomenauts? More characters, more modes, more features, more MORE? So do we!

    We are ready to take the Awesomenauts you know and love to the next level, but we need your help to get there. Help us make Awesomenauts the ultimate indie MOBA by supporting this Kickstarter for Awesomenauts: Starstorm!

    Awesomenauts is the coolest project we have ever worked on. It is amazing to see all of these players come together and form such a dedicated community that is growing to this day. Because of this we have been able to add new characters, features and a new map. We even reached out to the community for skin and balance ideas, and created a brand new character with you: the upcoming Admiral Swiggins!

    Now, we have done all that can be done within the current confinements of the game. In order to truly bring Awesomenauts to the next level, we would like to add features that require much more time and effort than we have currently allocated for it. You, our community, have already been so involved in the shaping of Awesomenauts into what it is today, and now you can help us take it to the next step. Help us fund Awesomenauts: Starstorm!

    > * Ted McPain was one of the great heroes of the first AI Wars, a long time ago. Long after his eventual heroic demise, he lived on as he became the star of various video games: Ted McPain I through XVII, Ted McPain: Zombie Blast, Ted McPain vs. Evil Ted McPain and Ted McPain Unicorn Dance Karting. Now Voltar managed to re-materialize Ted. The Ted McPain that appeared, though, was missing his pants for unknown reasons. * Like a true hero, Ted McPain caries several guns. He can switch between those during combat to vary the manner in which he delivers destruction. * Class: Brawler

    • Sentry is a robot built for infiltration, fooling enemy troops by mimicking anything from an umbrella to a phone booth. After re-activating aboard the Starstorm and finding it overrun by hostile mercenaries, Sentry chose to join them undercover. Biding his time to exact revenge, gathering enough Solar to buy a very serious tank. One with a shark printed on the front!
    • Sentry can activate his shield to collect damage, shooting it back at his opponents when the shield ends.
    • Class: Tank

    • Skree, the powerful but superstitious techno shaman, found himself all alone on an abandoned space station: the Starstorm, filled with mighty looking robots. Thinking the disabled robots were gods, he spent his time collecting different parts of the battle station to create shrines for them. While connecting robot parts and machine scraps to form huge robotic statues and altars, he accidentally activated the mainframe of the Starstorm, re-powering the entire battle station! Frightened by his now activated robotic gods, Skree decided he didn't want to worship them anymore. What better way to travel the universe in search of new spirit-gods, than to join the Awesomenauts?
    • When Skree positions his board on the ground, he becomes invisible for several seconds. Then the board rushes straight back to him, damaging everything in its way.
    • Class: Assassin

    Ted McPain, Sentry X-58 and Skree have all lived through parts of the Starstorm story, so they will have special voice lines for when they encounter each other in battle.

    All characters will also be added to the Playstation 4 version of the Starstorm expansion.

    Needless to say, I'd totally kill for the $10,000 Cakemantium Tier Rewards:
