Shovel Knight is a sweeping classic action adventure game with awesome gameplay, memorable characters, and an 8-bit retro aesthetic. It's a hot mashup of new and old that may remind you of Mega Man, Castlevania, or Dark Souls!

9384ec966d537813bfaf45a1f7de1c93_large.png

Already funded and 3 days to go.
Will be saving this on the "remind me" and probably buy it when it comes out.



http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/idgi/consortium-0?ref=users

CONSORTIUM is a first-person story and character-based role-playing shooter set in an interactive world defined by your choices.

Rather than endlessly exploring a huge, expansive and ultimately static world, you’ll find yourself within a dynamic, bustling, interactive and alive micro-environment: the Consortium Command Vessel, C-3800-D "ZENLIL."


"I thought the writing was top-notch, as well as the voice acting....I was enjoying the story, and I was curious to see where it was going. You certainly had me hooked!"

- Timothy Cain @ Obsidian Entertainment. Senior Programmer on Project Eternity,after having played CONSORTIUM.

How replayable will Consortium be?

Very. One of the most important game design aspects of Consortium has always been replayability. Every time you speak to someone there are enough different branches and choices that you can hold the "same conversation" multiple times, and still be surprised by the different paths you can take and the different information you can learn. There are also many parts through the story where your actions or inaction will effectively cause 'ripples' throughout the rest of the game, with new conversations, scenes, attitudes, and outright plot-lines opening up because of it.

These guys had already tried KS but failed. Now they're at 97% with 7 days to go.
They call it RPG but it looks more like an FP adventure with FPS combat.
Has 2 gameplay modes: story gamer & action gamer.
Maybe it will be a good storyfag game.
Soule is the music composer.

Of the above I've played FTL, Giana Sisters, and Strike Suit Zero.

FTL is awesome, if a bit simplistic at times. You will die a lot.

Giana Sisters is quite cool platformer. I like that kind of games but suck terribly at them. The game is quite beautiful, but not Rayman-level.

SSZ sucks. It may not suck for you that much if you don't like Freespace, Independence War or even X series. It's a simplistic shooter, with a lot of bullet storm shit which works crappy with the chosen camera.

Another released game, this is from 2011:
A 2.5D sidescrolling action RPG for iOS devices that vividly depicts an epic retro-fantasy, sword and sorcery saga.
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects...f-blades-a-retrofantasy-adventure-for-ios-dev

Also:
Pledge $10 or more

33 backers

Receive a copy of God of Blades upon release!
One of our favorite games of 2012, God of Blades [$2.99], is on sale again. For a limited time, you can grab the super atmospheric, side-scrolling action game for $1.99 instead of its usual $2.99. Smell that? That's the smell of savings wafting into your noses, folks.

Just for amusement: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/your-!-news

Over the past two years Your ! News (YAN) has been many things to many people and has continuously evolved under the guidance of numerous contributors. Since our humble beginnings as a new account we have always resisted being held to the constraints placed upon mainstream media outlets, but were limited to the tools available to us via Twitter and Tumblr. Those of us contributing to YAN have always desired to expand our capabilities and to report, not just aggregate, the news.​

Was only asking for $2,000. Now at $36,804 with 36 hours left.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/clickshake/a-small-favor-2d-side-scrolling-adventure-game

A Small Favor is a hand-drawn, 2D adventure that combines the gritty, futuristic adventure style of Full Throttle and Beneath a Steel Sky with the side scrolling sci-fi exploration of Another World (aka. Out Of This World). You play as an alien assassin (with a laser gun!) trying to escape the clutches of a dangerous gangster.

This new game is based on one of ClickShake’s most popular browser-based games (http://www.clickshakegames.com/games/small-favor/a-small-favor.php). Using the browser version as a starting point, we’re creating an expanded storyline, improved artwork and hours of new gameplay. The completed game will be released as a DRM-free download for PC and Mac.

Rowan Kaiser wants to crowdfund a book length analysis of Mass Effect http://www.gofundme.com/2joch0 :lol:

I see four good reasons. First, Mass Effect is quite possibly the most interesting, discussion-worthy game series of all time, and you can't read enough about it.

I can't wait for the chapter where he talks about how the film grain in Mass Effect changed his perceptions of what is possible in an RPG.

An interesting piece from Forbes:
On April 1st, 2013, Kickstarter released a “tax guide” for project creators that will lead thousands of creatives to fall under IRS tax audits as well as their contributors. The tax guide started with the best intentions, but the execution is beyond wrong. This is a WARNING to all Kickstarter creators and contributors to be very wary of taking any advice they provided.
http://www.forbes.com/sites/cameron...g-kickstarters-policies-cause-irs-tax-audits/
Must have been the date they have choose to publish that guide.

With the new development of publisher involvement in successful Kickstarters I have decide to create a dedicated section that in pure codexian spirit will be called:

PUBLISHER DRAMA

DISCLAIMER:
Drama is not always guaranteed.


Dodger Blue will be the color used for the links.
Here a handy thread summarizing some of the DRAMA.


Cloudberry Kingdom and Ubisoft
Expeditions: Conquistador and bitComposer
Shdowrun Returns and Microsoft
Obsidian and Paradox.
Oculus Rift and Facebook, yes you have read that correctly.
