Magrunner: Dark Pulse is a brand new, in-development first-person puzzle game with a blend of cyberpunk and Lovecraftian lore, and you can fund it and even influence its development.

That sounds like a Kickstarter project if there ever was one, but it's not. Everyone, meet Gamesplanet Lab, which is actually exactly like Kickstarter, but specifically for indie games (and with a much more global feel).

Here's the game's story synopsis, from a press release sent out today: "In Magrunner – Dark Pulse, the hero Yoshi and his robotic dog Newton enter the Gruckezber Magtech Challenge, a technology competition drawing contestants from around the world with a 1 million credit grand prize. They soon discover that this friendly game has a much darker purpose behind it. Now only this intrepid duo and Yoshi's mutant mentor Gamaji stand between the earth's survival and eldritch annihilation."
