Well, they need $1,200 in a day -- not looking good unless one of the devs just throws money at it to get the other $8k.

(not asking to be added, just a FYI)



3D "Spiritual Successor" to Sanitarium where you play a schizophrenic patient made by former members of Dreamforge. [or so they say]

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects...sanity-psychological-horror-game?ref=category

the pitch had such a surreal vibe :lol:



Sword and Spirit is a small company looking to release a 3D game. We worked as programmers for Dreamforge Intertainment from 1997-2001. Rob Seres worked on engine programming and level implementation for Sanitarium. Keith Leonard helped develop an in-house 3D Engine for DreamForge. After Sanitarium, we both worked on titles that never shipped, including a Werewolf game for WhiteWolf, and a fully 3D sequel to Myst.

Not sure how much of Sanitarium that is...
Does "level implementation" includes such things as mood and atmosphere?
There is a thread about this but people don't seem interested, scarce chance of funding too:

Ooh, Alum has been funded! I'm actually pretty happy about that; the more adventure games the merrier.
Sorry Bee but a ten thousand dollars project must be very special to be added, however if five people brofist your post I will add it.

She's an admin, that's not a very good criteria :lol:

The important thing is to shift the blame on someone else when the project will horribly fail.:troll:

Eh, feel free not to add it. ;) I was just surprised and happy it got funded.

I never trusted those Alum hipsters.
The original pitch was pure dumbfuckery with them looking like they were on drugs "uhhh and I'm like uhhh, point and click is awesome... hur hur".
Also, they didn't show absolutely nothing of value that couldn't be implemented during a weekend.

I hope I'm wrong, but they just look to be doing some gold digging.

How about this one, which got $50,000, yet I haven't seen mentioned around here much?

I backed that one, at first I feared it would end up being one of those "experience" games like Botanicula and Little Inferno but when I asked one of the devs about it at another forum he said they wanted it to be quite challenging, and I liked everything else anyways so...

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/u55/u55-end-of-the-line

U55 – END OF THE LINE is a survival horror adventure set in the subway system of modern-day Berlin. The game will be developed for Windows. Sticking to the tried and true lore created by H.P. LOVECRAFT, we aim for an immersive urban horror experience on an unprecedented scale. We want to recreate the classic “cosmic horror” setting of diabolical entities breaking into reality and bring it to life with the help of subliminal sounds. What humanity believes to be regulated by the laws of nature, is only true until nameless forces start swaying over the world.

The isometric adventure-game with prerendered backgrounds, STASIS, is going to have a crowdfunding campaign soon:

On the crowd sourcing front, we have been VERY hard at work getting things in order. I don’t want to give away too much, but be certain that it will be AWESOME. I wish I could say more, but I’m sworn to secrecy – plus its more fun this way.
