    For all you cheap ass tabletop nerds:

    200 miniatures for $65 right now including quite a few larger ones. Probably going to be around 220-240 by the end unless they start reigning in the stretch goals (already changed them from 10K to 15K increments). I know nothing about miniatures except they seem expensive unless you invest in a 3D printer so this seem OK. Anyway about to start doing D&D with my 8 year so I though I'd give these a go.

    A roguelite take on CDDA.
    15 USD for the cheapest key tier. It's already met its funding goal.

    Could be interesting.

    Maybe not...

    Isn't Cataclysm already a roguelike? And quite furry?

    *Checks pics* Apparently not enough.

    I was afraid all of the environments would look the same (industrial metal grey, but there appears to be much more variety in the art section)

    I found out that it was mentioned in this thread in 2018, so I decided to post the video here.

    The kickstarter video looks like a lame, claustrophobic action shooter. April's reveal trailer is much more atmospheric and hints at a much better paced experience:

    Agreed. Definitely the wrong tone upon which to sell the game. That said, I gave the demo a spin and I was left with a very positive impression. copy/paste

    I was surprised by how quickly I was immersed in the game world. Controls feel smooth, reminiscent of the recent Darkwood title. The visuals, while murky, are very well done. The soundscape is moody and thick. Resource management is the name of the game as you explore the trenches and reach different safe/save rooms. I'm not feeling the melee combat as it is, it feels kinda tit for tat with not much strategy, namely b/c you're locked in place while aiming BOTH firearms and melee weapons. Maybe I'm not understanding the wind up mechanic. I'll definitely reload and resume my save as I'm quite enamored with the tone and general pace of the game. Starts off linearly then forks into several different directions. Thankfully I've not noticed much enemy respawning that feels cheep or cheesy. Give the demo a try!
