    Grim Comment about Code Hero.

    The funny/delusional part on this one was the "with 200k we can make it into an MMO!". Well, the most delusional part of a super delusional kickstarter.

    Legally speaking, I wonder what will happen. I guess so long as you release some sort of game you should be able to avoid jail time.

    Holy moley. Latest update for Manse Macabre! I don't see how these games that ask for 10k or 20k to make a game can be taken seriously. Maybe for a 2 hour platformer that's already has a demo ready.

    So this is how the Go language works. For those who don't understand programming, this can NEVER WORK. It's like sharing a CVS repository with random strangers (bad enough) that has no way to revert to old versions. I am shocked that even the hipsters at google would try to popularize thys stygian horror.

    What's the point of keeping a fucking list if you're just going to tell people to check this thread, the previous pages and brofist the games they find interesting?

    Fine, lifeless planet would not be added, because it wasn't signaled, I don't know about it and I don't care, and the whole point of a list is for people to check, if that is too troublessome use the search function.

    You could also add Serpent in the Staglands to the Codex pet projects. We even did a fundraiser and a contest for it.

    Unfortunately, the Kickstarter ultimately met its untimely end in the dank, art deco-rated tunnels of obscurity, pulling in only a small fraction of the $70,000 it needed. Part of that, developer MONO contends, is due to miscommunications on what exactly the game entails. It’s about to launch another Kickstarter, but before it does that, it wants to clear a few things up. New trailer and details below.

    [...]

    InSomnia is an atmospheric single-player\co-op RPG, set in the dieselpunk, apocalyptic universe, “living” open world sandbox & realtime, tactical gameplay. InSomnia will send you into murky retro-futuristic universe of metal jungles permeated by Noir and Dieselpunk.​

    Good artwork but sounds liek a delusional project. Any kind of coop or MMO is not realistic for some indie to make.
