Kickstarter, Indigogo, Gamefound – Crowdfunding has taken the gaming world by storm.
There are always plenty of ways to find the big projects currently on offer, but here I talk about those projects that might have slipped through your feed.
Another Wednesday, another round-up on things I am looking forward to! Last week, the Kickstarter for a fun game idea called Shelfie Stacker got bumped for PAX 2020 news. Today, PAX merch is available to order. I didn’t want to push talking about Shelfie Stacker again, so today I talk about two things that are making me spend my money!
So the one Kickstarter project I was interested in this week, I can’t back. Delivery restrictions – they don’t send to Australia. But an old favourite is also coming to Switch this week. How to choose what to write about?
As the meme says – why not both? The Messenger looks like a brain busting puzzle time, and Burnout Paradise is coming to Switch for driving mayhem!
Normally on Wednesdays I like to talk about Kickstarters that make me excited. This week, unfortuntely, none have quite done that. A few made me smile, but nothing to rave about.
Tomorrow though, the Kickstarted board game Blood Rage launches for retail the Kickstarted Blood Rage Digital. That counts, right?
I love social deduction games, but they tend to fall into one of two categories. The first, quick gameplay but hard to invest in and quick to solve. The other are immersive, but long and sometimes overly complicated. Stop the Train! from Escape Plan! (so many !’s) is on Kickstarter now, and looks to merge the two categories into a game I am keen to play.
When you are starting to create your first role play campaign, your players will always run off in a direction you never thought of. That means as the Storyteller/Games Master/Dungeon Master, you have to come up with a lot of on the spot information. Sometimes, that works. Usually, you get into a campaign breaking situation.
Roll & Play: The Game Master’s Tabletop Toolkit, will be great for building campaigns and tweaking random situations on the fly. And it’s now available on Kickstarter.
So I was looking for games I am excited about coming out on Kickstarter. Frosthaven, Ankh, there are plenty of high profile games that want you to give them your money. But Van Ryder Games snuck under my radar again with the new implementation of a great solo game system.
Final Girl is my April Kickstarter, and I wish I could explain why better!
