I prefer stretch goals with ambition...

Free virtual hi-fives, all around?

Consortium has 13 hours left to earn $6k to achieve its final (announced) stretch goal. Looks like an intriguing game, an RPG in a restricted setting that allows all the NPCs to be developed characters, instead of the usual dozens of generic villagers wandering around who can't be interacted with.

I don't know why I thought high fives all around are ambitious. That joke was a ground ball right to the first baseman.

Ohhh, so that's what those speech bubbles mean. Can't believe I've never noticed that.

Jagged Alliance goes back to its roots with kickstarter campaing that apparently starts in next week

I'm glad they're going back to turn-based.

 

As an aside, if we like this thread on Facebook, do we get extra levels in quote pyramids?

I don't see anything about Ian Currie being on board and so that means it isn't really Jagged Alliance.  He's actually at Turbine, which is my second favorite game developer.  Seriously, you can't have Jagged Alliance without him.  They don't appear to have anyone from Sir-Tech, so I really don't see any reason to get any hopes up here.

Firaxis did X-COM: Enemy Unknown without Julian Gollop and did a pretty bang up job IMHO.  With that said, I'd be happier if Ian Currie was involved in this.

Firaxis is one of the best developers out there and has a ton of experience with epic turn based games.  This JA developer doesn't sound like it has anything resembling a resume.

I don't particularly dislike the idea of new JA games without ex-SirTech input- and they sound a lot better than BiA- but I am not very likely at all to contribute. The Shadowrun thing has soured me towards any publisher influenced KS, I'm not particularly keen on BitComposer using KS as funding for their IPs (or buying up stuff post KS really, though I'm a lot less negative on that front; it's free and risk free money for them so understandable they try it on) and I'm not particularly keen on BC after their attempt to gazump the rights to Stalker- along with accusations they hadn't paid due royalties for CoP.

 

Does make me wonder if it was BitComposer who approached Feargus about doing a kickstarter for them prior to P: E

I noticed that the JA developer is also the one doing the TB version of Space Hulk.  Hey, I do hope they are successful, I'd love to have a new Chaos Gate style Space Hulk game, and I'd be amazed at a decent Jagged Alliance.  But I'm not going to kickstart them.  I save my investment dollars for folks that have done something amazing in the past.  That's why I threw money at Obsidian, Lori and Corey Cole, and the Space Quest guys.  Even if they fail, they've given me enough memories for me to deserve a shot at it.

 

This made me curious about Ian and Linda Currie, and apparently they are doing extremely well at Turbine working on both DDO and LotRO, so I don't see them launching any kickstarters soon.

Among the Sleep

Previously seen in the news, this is a first-person horror adventure game where you play a two year-old child

 

An interesting and creative concept for a game. Just playing as a powerless two-year-old would have a potent psychological impact. I hope it succeeds. :)

EDIT: It was a UK thing.

 

Realm does look pretty neat though. I wonder how it will compare to that Sierra one from a bunch of years back that they dumped a lot of money into. :devil:

This seems like an interesting point and click game:

Been following the concept artist's deviantart account for years. The work they've done so far looks great. The gameplay concept could be good if it's executed well, I've liked the single player cooperative style puzzle gameplay ever since I played Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee.

It's Zach Braff, y'know? I wish I had $5000+ to spare. Maybe I can at least convince hubby that a LA premiere can be a fun vacation. ;)

Yeah, I loved Scrubs and I'm sure he'll get plenty of support. But my KS money is going to CPRGs. :)

The Zach Braff project will easily make its 2 million goal and likely triple that.  I don't know if it will get into Veronica Mars territory, but it's going to get plenty of money, that's for sure.  Camera technology these days has made it possible to shoot full length, quasi-Hollywood level movies for just a couple million dollars.  Not with full on Michael Bay SPLOSHUNS!!!

I love him, but I'm not actually sure I feel like giving Zach's project funds, myself, unless I had enough to get one of those top tiers. Because as mentioned, he's going to get plenty of cash anyway and I'm selfish like that. Maybe the $20 tho, I like soundtracks .... Besides, I'm still waiting for Michael Biehn's "I used to be almost famous and now I do terrible B movies" Kickstarter. ;)
