The Kickstarter Thread

Recommended Posts

The beta for the first two chapters of Moebius has been released for backers - not going to bother personally, but it's good progress. It may well make it to release before their other, publisher-backed game that's been essentially done since December but keeps getting delayed for commercial reasons. It's a handy example, and an indictment of, how some publishers go about business with small developers.

Kickstarted is in its final 10 or so hours.

 

The Kobe Beef Jerky guys again fake pledged $30,000 this afternoon to try and throw things off.

 

It is currently at $78.6K/$85K goal.

 

------

 

Also, Armikrog and Nelly Cootalot are now funded! Nelly now has a cinematic opening and ending. Armikrog is about $35k away from a WiiU port from happening as well and added on for all the backers who have pledged at least $20.

 

------

 

Look out for a new Zeboyd Games kickstarter in the future. Their new game will be called Cosmic Star Heroine.

^^^^^

 

Oops! I read the Armikrog thing wrong. The WiiU version will be added amongst the choices of which version you want. Not added to your version. My bad.

Rehearsals and Returns is in its final 3 hours, and is $222 away from its stretch goal of hiring a database programmer.

^^^ The "Strategy game" statement actually lowered my interest until I read further. Other than having an overarching strategic goal, which many CRPGs have, how is it a Strategy game? It doesn't sound like the player is controlling large forces at the operational level.

Do you know that original Syndicate(1993) involved capturing resources, conducting research and equipping your agents and also capturing human material for future agents? That is exactly what strategy is.

Okay, but how is that relevant to the current Kickstarter? The description does not appear to mention such strategic elements.

Other than them saying that you'd abduct researchers to... research for example? ;)

Lacuna Passage

 

An exploration/survival game based on discovering the fate of a lost exploration mission to Mars

 

Has a decent line in the video where they explain the lack of physical rewards by noting they're kickstarting a game, not a t-shirt

A documentary about Sierra On-Line is being made, looks like they've got all the right interviews.  I pledged for a DVD, I remember going on a tour of the company on Oakhurst when I was about 12, it was magical.

 

Their goal is a bit high, hopefully they can make it.

It is a bit steep, considering it sound like it's basically shot. It sound like they just want the money to make it look professional and add music.

 

Still, it's about a big chunk of the games I grew up on, so I've pledge.

 

I wonder if they'll cover Tsunami Games as well...

That is pretty cool, they should make their goal. Always liked the story of Sierra.

Hmm, looking through a list of Sierra On-Line games, I'd have thought I'd have played more of them.

You're describing types of actions that can happen in just about any RPG with social interactions.
