If you have been paying attention to the industry in the last year or so, one thing has become abundantly clear. Sandbox games are popping up everywhere. The newest addition to the club is a game from Asylum Entertainment titled Identity. With the sandbox market becoming increasingly saturated, it's hard to stand out from the crowd. After watching the nine minute video, Identity certainly has grabbed our attention. For starters, the title chooses a modern real world setting as opposed to the fantasy staple of the genre. The feature list promised seems ambitious, but not overly so. Identity seems to ride a fine line between interesting conceptual ideas and feasible implementation.


Currently running its Kickstarter, Asylum Entertainment is attempting to fund 150,000 CAD (127,000 USD) and offers packages starting in the 5CAD range. Currently no beta dates have been annnounced, but the package delivery is slated for December of 2016. Asylum Entertainment has set up a teaser page and promises a full fledged community site in the near future.
