Since I couldn't find a thread for this, I'll make my own. :) What awesome Kickstarter finds have you seen lately?

This one looks freakin adorable:

Agustin Cordes' kickstarter for Asylum!

Interesting - this game has been Greenlit, and it isn't even funded yet.

Very nice! Monsters stole my birthday cake looks adorable. And I've seen Asylum videos floating around the internet so I'm glad to see it's moving forward. Not sure whether it can make its high goal, though.

Oh, here's my suggestion:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1599677835/unwritten-that-which-happened?ref=live

It's a game in which you guide a tribe through a harsh environment. The choices you make are incorporated into the tribe's history and culture, which I think is a really interesting idea. :P

Yeah, I saw that one too. :) I usually don't like turn-based strategy games but it's got an interesting story angle. I doubt they'll meet their goal but I hope they continue on!

I've gotta go replay those games. Or at least watch an LP!

@Oldbushie: yes, I've not played many turn-based games, but it's the narrative aspect that interests me. Apparently when you make choices, your tribe acquires an attribute which will affect their culture. You can take one attribute per game and send it away to the player's other tribes, and then it will become a legend and will affect all the player's future tribes, except moreso - so any positive OR negative attributes of the original attribute are sort of amplified when it becomes legendary. The twist is, you can only do this once per game, and if you send the attribute away, you (the sender) can't use it again.

So this means you *could* send a really crippling attribute away if your game is going really well and you want to do without it - but then the problem is, all future games will have to deal with that attribute, in a more extreme form. Or you could decide to send a really good attribute back, but since you can only do this once per game, you might want to wait for a better one to come along - and while you're waiting you might get your tribe wiped out. :P

@Katie: yes! I loved TLJ though never got round to playing dreamfall. Hope this goes ahead. :)

I have seen his Dreamfall LP, actually. But I could use the refresher on TLJ :)

I really want to LP these games in preparation but I cannot get TLJ to work nicely with FRAPS. It just shows black screens when the game is playing a video and it glitches out the subtitles. :-\

You might have to try switching to a software renderer in that case, not sure if that's doable with a game. I did that as an option in my video player once when I was trying to screenshot a movie.

Yes, with a week to go I honestly couldn't see it succeeding. But they somehow pulled that rabbit out of that hat, to use an extremely laboured and not entirely appropriate metaphor. :D

You're welcome.   ;D  I upped my pledge after Wildman was cancelled.
I have my cake and eat it too, until it's gone.  Then I can't do either.
