Looks like they went for the almighty dollar. Guess a private investor was canny enough to see the potential of a Simcity competitor.

I don't have any particular problem with that. From what I understand from the release, there will still be a DRM free release and the ideas will be the same. The only thing I'd be worried about is the price.

I saw this earlier today, and I have to admit, that I'm not quite sure what to make of it. It's potentially brilliant, or one of those "it sounded like a good idea at the time" ideas.

The price is what i thought initially. It will go up if they are being published by someone else. Shame :/


That card thing would take some getting used to. And. Trying to find people who actually have a copy to play with.

Has this been posted? The X500 Plus computer case. Not something I think is worth the $400, but there are probably enough people with a better combo of money and nostalgia.
Something for strategy fans:
Battle Worlds: Kronos - Turn-based strategy revisited
Mm, nice. They had me at "hotseat".

That sounds nice. It seems a bit too combat-focused for my tastes (similar to something like Fantasy Wars which I didn't like all that much) and I don't really need more TBS right now, what with Warlock, Fallen Enchantress or Eador.

Still, I'll back this, more TBS is never a bad thing. And if they can really pull off a modern Battle Isle, that would be great.

Shovel Knight is now available for 3DS and Wii U. Nintendo seems to be smart enough to get plenty of kickstarter indie games on their consoles.
Consortium is back for their second attempt, with a lower goal this time
The Dark Triad: Dragon's Death, a 3D isometric, turn-based RPG
The Gallery: Six Elements

Influenced by the Myst series, The Gallery: Six Elements is a transcendental adventure with a heavy emphasis on environmental immersion, exploration & path-finding, physical challenges, puzzle solving, and emotional depth.

- Designed for the Oculus Rift (and future commercial integrations) & Standard Mouse/Monitor configurations
- Randomized Environments & Path-finding
- First-Person "Mirrors Edge"-like Body Awareness/Persistence
- Immersive, Realistic 3D Environments, Inspired by the "Myst" series
- Physical Challenges
- Cerebral Puzzles
- DRM-Free

Sounds wunderbar.

At $25 minimum (higher than most KS games $10-15) you'd expect Project Eternity/Wasteland 2/Torment Tides of Numerera level of quality.... i have my doubts...
