    Sounds like Ultima Online was the series last high point. Ultima Online was the shit for a few years. Right up till they split the servers in two, to PVP and no PVP sides. People left in droves after that. Was a great wild wilderness up till then, and I've never experienced that in a MMO ever since.

    Starmancer. It's a Dwarf Fortress inspired Space Station simulator.

    SWERY (Deadly Premonition, D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die) has relaunched his project The Good Life on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...ef=hero_thanks

    It's pitched as a murder mystery / debt repayment RPG, kind of like a mix between Twin Peaks and Animal Crossing and, knowing SWERY, it's bound to go off the rails at some point. As he said on the previous campaign: "This is a Swery Game, so expect a healthy dosage of horror, mystery, humor and taboo topics that helped make Deadly Premonition such a cult hit."

    They've gotten a publisher and partners to contribute to the development budget, so the goal is lower this time around. Looking good so far.

    Bloodstained released a video interviewing several of the voice actors for the game (sadly no interview with David Hayter whose one of the voice actors for it). Quite interesting. For the game they even got the voice actor who did the voice for "Alucard" in Castlevania - Symphony of The Night. That just gets the game awesome points automatically for me.

    I'm backing Iron Harvest, an RTS based on Jakub Różalski's paintings of an alternate-history dieselpunky sort of post-WW1. The developers don't seem to have shipped any AAA-level titles in the past, but they have done three successful Kickstarters for smaller games, and seem open about where the money is going and how they're intending to get the game fully funded. It's really gorgeous art they're working from, and it looks to be translating pretty well to game graphics.

    They say they'll have a representative at PAX East this weekend with an early build of the game available for demo, so since I'll be there I plan to see if I can try it out.

    If your a MYST nut then you may want to get in on this one which is a limited run boxed set of all 7 MYST games, complete with a heap of extras, to celebrate series's 25th anniversary. Damn I'm old.



    I'm not that much of a fan myself, but just letting you guys know incase one of you would fit that category.

    That's really good news for Myst fans, because Myst 3 and 4 so far have not been available via digital download (GOG, Steam, or anywhere else for that matter).

    I backed The Good Life this second time around, even though I didn't even really know what the core gameplay would be like. Well, this first proper look at the gameplay does not disappoint. It's basically a photography-based puzzle game.



    The KS is getting close to halfway there, with 18 days to go: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...fe/description

    I hope they make it.

    Yeah, I'm backing this too. It looks better than expected, but really, all it needs to be is as weird as only Swery can make it. And yes, weirder than turning into a cat to solve a murder mystery.

    The Good Life is only slightly past the half-way point with 9 days to go. And they just released a playable demo! Check it out! Sadly I'd already watched the demo walkthrough video above, so all the challenge was gone, but it's still a pleasant experience.

    Backed Idol Manager and the above mentioned Swery65 game (he follows me on Twitter, which is a nice novelty I guess.).

    Idol Manager hit their stretch goal for mod support, so I'll wait for the inevitable K-pop mod. They also hit their stretch goal for a Switch port, a management/tycoon game would work well on a mobile platform so that's cool.

    Swery65's upcoming game The Good Life has been funded on Kickstarter for PC/PS4! Presently they have a stretch goal of $800,000 USD to fund a Switch port.

    Hell yeah! It was looking uncertain for a while there, but in the last few days it soared right past the finish line. I think getting a playable demo out so Let's Players had something to show was a good idea.

    I'm backing DYSTOA, a poetic first person exploration game set in an "otherworld" recently suffering through some kind of apocalypse. The game is apparently near completion, but now they need a little bit of extra funds to finish it. Unfortunately, the interest hasn't been overwhelming, so things do look a little grim at the moment, but, still, it's not impossible that they will reach their goal: they are at 68% right now with five days to go. I can think of at least two, not too unreasonable, scenarios that would solve the problem, but if the current rate is maintained, the goal won't be reached.

    As a fan of the genre -- although a somewhat starved fan -- I believe the game has the potential to be something great -- or else I wouldn't back it, but, at the same time, I'm holding back a little: I don't know if they are aware of it, but their English is lacking a bit -- which doesn't have to be a problem, but you will have to look past that when reading their presentation, which is a problem: they aren't the best at selling a game that both looks and sounds amazing. Communicating (in English) doesn't seem to be their most developed skill and attracting the right audience for this type of game can't be done with just smoke and mirrors. Another problem could be that the average gamer isn't part of that audience.

    The developers are apparently working on many fronts at the same time by getting out smaller games, like Dystoa (or Ascendance), so they can keep working on their big one, ESSENCE, which will be much larger in scope. Essence is publicly available -- and I have been wanting to play it for a while now -- but it's still in Early Access. If their current kickstarter is a success, this might help to get Essence out and done too.

    DYSTOA is slightly over 100% right now with 46 hours left.

    198X. A game that is a mashup of 80s/early 90s genres from beat'em'ups, fighting games, Shinobi style action platformer, scrolling shooter, RPG, etc etc.







    I'm digging the art style.

    Whether it will be a good game or not is anyone's guess, but I like the idea behind it.

    This is awesome. As a 2D Castlevania megafan. I'm all over this.

    I don’t think you can kick this, can you? AFAIK, you’ll get a copy if you supported Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, and you’ll be able to purchase it separately.

    Also, I’m shamelessly stealing this from someone else’s post on the game:

    My girlfriend was looking over my shoulder while I was browsing and said, “Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon? That’s a game about menstruation, isn’t it?”

    Lol.

    Yeah sorry forgot to mention that you only get this if you backed Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, or pay for it (Curse of the Moon).

    They were actually still accepting late pledges until yesterday. I forgot all about this project until I saw the announcements for the 2d prequel and decided to make a pledge over the weekend. Should be fun to play on my switch.

    I'm almost more interested in that than the actual game.

    Also, I'm stealing what N'Al's stealing too.

    FYI: You don't get the option of a GOG key.

    Bad luck for militant socialists who only buys from the likes of GOG and Humble.

    I was thinking about a game which I backed years ago called "The Mandate". It was going to be a very ambitious space RPG/strategy/management hybrid game with the troop combat + management of X-Com; the space RTS combat of Homeworld; and the character RPG'ing of a BioWare game like Mass Effect.

    Googling it now, it appears that the game is dead. I found this article which was last updated in Feb 2018.
    https://www.oneangrygamer.net/2017/0...silence/38479/
    Seems the project lead is now working at Conan/Secret World developer Funcom. How shitty of them to just go dark instead of being transparent with backers, i.e. just flat-out say that the project is cancelled.

    $700,000. Wow. I mean, not like Star Citizen wow, but still wow. And obviously insufficient to make X-Com+Homeworld+MassEffect, but should've been enough to make SOMETHING. I wish I'd hopped the Kickstarter bandwagon in 2013.

    Another good one:



    This has a System Shock-like vibe, but done in 2D perspective. Sounds quite interesting.
