Pretty much everything about Dark Souls is difficult, but that uphill battle apparently doesnít translate over to raising money for a board game version of the popular dark fantasy adventure. That project recently wrapped up its Kickstarter campaign, raking in more than $5 million in the process.
Awhile ago, I wrote an article about a progressive game on Kickstarter called Ghost Theory that, unfortunately, didnít successfully get funded. But with their second attempt at getting funding through Kickstarter, things have finally taken a turn for the better.
John Romero and Adrian Carmack, the co-creators of DOOM, delivered on the promise of unveiling their new title. The name of the game? Blackroom. The first-person shooter has taken to Kickstarter to get its funding, with a goal of $700,000. The independently made title will be crowd-funding for the next 32 days.
Indie studio Eight Points has an interesting game in the making called The Wild Eight. It's a survival game made for cooperative play for up to eight players. The isometric title is currently seeking $50,000 on Kickstarter and they've managed to get off to a strong start already on the crowd-funding platform.
This horror game might feel oddly familiar...canít put your finger on it? The game has been in development for awhile with an initial release date listed on its Kickstarter as March 2015, so many were surprised to see the quality of the newest trailer which feels very much like a 1999 version of Silent Hill or an early version of Resident Evil or Fatal Frame.
Making video games is no walk in the park. Yes, tools these days make it easy for anyone to pick up the development mantle and make their own game, like Bear Simulator. However, the developer found out the hard way that sometimes criticisms can be harsh and the internet harsher, and in result he's decided to quit game development.
A brand new platforming action game has been announced called Stray. The game is an action-platformer in the same vein as many other classic 16-bit titles from way back in the day that populated the Sega Genesis and SNES, except you play as a space cat. The game is currently seeking funds on Kickstarter and votes on Greenlight.
If youíve ever wondered what nightmares are truly made of, Neverending Nightmares gives you a glimpse into that darkness. And just yesterday, creator Matt Gilgenbach of Infinitap Games announced that the game was officially coming to PS4 and PS Vita the second quarter of this year.
One thing many recent indie horror games have had in common was their obvious influence by last Fallís Silent Hills teaser, P.T. But The Works Of Mercy burrows into something much deeper and darker than ever before. This time, the player is forced to do the killing, and itís a sick trip into a very uncomfortable and unnerving gameplay experience. Watch the chilling gameplay trailer below, which takes you through the prologue.
The dark action-packed 2D adventure, Pinstripe, was 60% funded after only six hours of running the Kickstarter campaign, and at the time of writing, the game has been successfully funded with almost $37,000 and 28 days left to go; thatís $9000 over its initial goal of $28,000.
Ex-Blizzard devs have collaborated to create Kollide Entertainment, and they have launched a Kickstarter to fund their very first game, Broken. While the game is obviously still in its early stages, thereís still a bit of excitement at the thought of the kind of creativity going into the action horror game.
Playdek has run into a major problem: they don't appear to have the funds to finish Unsung Story. Part of the team has moved on from the project to work on something else and in result, development has been halted... indefinitely.
Bulkhead Interactive's first-person, World War II shooter, Battalion 1944, recently landed on Kickstarter and within the span of just three days the game managed to surpass its funding goal of $142,000. It's already accrued more than $216,000 and is currently gunning to hit those stretch goals.
Back in 2013, Senscape, including AgustŪn Cordes who helped design Scratches, unleashed a new project on Kickstarter called Asylum. And since the game was greenlit on Steam in 2013, thereís almost been no word of when we could expect the game in its full capacity. So the real question is, what happened to it?
When anyone decides to back any project on websites like Kickstarter or Fig, their hope is that if funded, their money will go into making the project a success. But in the case of crowdfunded game, Ant Simulator, the money didnít quite go into creating the game.
