Kickstarting and Screaming


#4742

Yeah, but they decided to implement #5 anyway.


#4743

This is almost done. They will get a shot.


#4744

The name made me think of an idea I once had:

Based off the expedition to reconquer Moria*, under Balin’s* leadership (the one whose remains the Fellowship of the ring found.)

Player starts with a large large army.

Progresses into the mountains, battles get progressively harder the deeper in they go, and reinforcements slower, BUT, inside is where all the Mithril* is.

So delve down to get the Mithril, but that makes you vulnerable.

You can’t turtle on an easier level either, as there will be periodic waves of Orcs etc attacking.

Eventually a Balrog*shows up, which is the end of the game.

  • = replace with appropriate monsters and names to avoid IP issues.

#4745

Action RPG/dating sim from the devs behind Moon Hunters and Shattered Planet.


#4746

Yees

I couldn’t help but cackle at the sailor moon-esque reveal of the first guy.


#4747

The concept looks cool, using space history in a competitive race game. But the CCG format…ugh.


#4748

And its live…


#4749

The fact that The Long Journey Home is listed in the game’s legacy is of great concern to me.


#4750

Did you like the writing in that? Because Richard Cobbett wrote for it (I forget to what degree, but I think most of it if not all), and is writing Nighthawks. That’s the tie here.


#4751

Ohhh, okay, the writing was likely the best part of the game. Whew.


#4752

A good friend’s Kickstarter.


#4753

Since you know this guy…have you read/reviewed any advance copy of this? It does sound very intriguing.


#4754

I have not. But I’ve seen and played his work in WoW (of course, like everyone else).


#4755

Darkside Detective Season 2 , Kickstarter! I loved what I played of the first game, so backing this for sure!


#4756

This looks to have very little of what I adored in the source material. Especially the base version of this version.

They should add a set of sealed envelopes as a stretch goal. Each envelope would contain an amazing plot twist that, in retrospect, explains a lot about the setting.


#4757

Hmm not sold on the description of the gameplay but I gotta a feeling a number of people are going to buy this just for the minis.


#4758

Just saw this! Damn, I miss the Brothers Chaps.


#4759

unnamed

Hit 50% after 4 days, I think it will be fine. But still get the word out if you know anyone that is interested.


#4760

This looks like a pretty neat boardgame. I love the cube drop mechanic. Already funded with 26 days to go. Designed by the guy who designed Game of Thrones, Arkham Horror, Sid Meier’s Civilization, and Descent: Journeys in the Dark.

3 hours left to get in on the early funding tier for an extra hero.


#4761

I’m backing it also as it looks really interesting. Not a big fan of timed exclusives though. It’ll discourage later backers from joining in.
