Anyone know much about this game:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/poo ... f=category

Looks neat. Not sold on spending $100 on a game I'll likely never play, but I like the artwork and miniatures. The thing is, there are pretty much no details about the game itself. Is this an established tabletop game? Is it fun? It says co-op, which is mostly why I'm looking at it. Much easier to get friends to do co-op.

Yup, I hope it hits 150k, hell I hope it hits 200k and beyond! I'd kind of like to see both 200k options eventually.

If it doesn't hit the stretch goals though, you're not going to never implement the stretch goal promises right? Will they just stop being a promise/priority, and turn into a "maybe later" thing instead?

I like the sound of the stretch goals so much I'd be devastated if there was literally no chance of them seeing the light of day.

I submit for your scrutiny Professor Pugnacious' Portfolio of Perils, Pugilism, and Perfidy, described as "a fast paced tactical deckbuilding Steampunk card game".

If you pledge any amount, you can download a print-and-play version of the entire basic game (minus art) to try out the gameplay.
While I have never played a similar game for comparison, I think it's quite fun and the art they've shown so far looks pretty good as well. The funding period ends next Tuesday (Dec. 4th) and there's still 7.5k to go, so if you're interested, check it out soon...

Looks awesome, though I have some typographical objections to some of their sample cards. Not really something I can put money into now... and also I don't really play card games at all. But I hope it is successful.

Good to see Maia and Sui Generis get funded. :)

Predestination looks interesting, as a Master of Orion-like 4X game.
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nyp ... ategy-game
Predestination is a turn-based space 4X game that significantly modernises and improves on the gameplay of classic games like Master of Orion II, Civilization and the Galactic Civilizations series. It blends turn-based galaxy management and turn-based tactical combat with modern 3D graphics, player-generated content, and innovative new game mechanics that 4X fans have been waiting years to get their hands on: A 3D galaxy map that works, real planetary exploration, streamlined micromanagement, realistic spying and planetary bombardment mechanics, and many other revolutionary features. It's all in Predestination, whether your focus is on exploring the galaxy, expanding your galactic empire, exploiting the resources around you or exterminating all races that cross your path.

Part of me wants to fund it because I buy basically every space 4X game that I see, but the video was pretty underwhelming. Most of the revolutionary features they discuss have been in other games, and a number of them seemed odd. Why, when colonizing a planet from orbit, are you mapping it out in small pieces? Apparently, they say in their first update that you'll scan more / faster as the game progresses, but unless the first planet starts as a crash-landing and you have to rebuild a space-faring civilization from scratch, it still seems odd.

Similarly with the 'streamlined micromanagement'- yes, we can standardize our city plans. But standardizing build queues is old, and it's not clear to me that having lots of hexes per planet adds all that much strategic value to the game, though it definitely adds a lot of low-level tactical decisions. Do I build the city now, or do I wait until I've explored more of the planet? Do I pick city location A, or B? Compare this to, say, Endless Space, which basically followed the MoO model except instead of operating on the level of planets, like MoO, it operated on the level of solar systems. You don't even build buildings on planets, except for specializing it! A space-based 4X game that operates on the level of cities seems bold or silly, perhaps both. How many cities per planet can we expect? How many planets per empire? How many cities does that work out to? If they all end up using the same layout, since no one wants to design ninety different city plans, why not just have one city plan?

But the itch to see how they'll do it is still there, even if I don't expect to be impressed.

well, it's only a 3k goal, but yeah 60k in a little over 24 hours is pretty amazing.

if they made 3k in 15 minutes, they must have started the campaign just a couple of minutes before "midnight" by whatever Kicktraq uses as midnight, because it only made about 1100 on it's first "day"

I think it's crazy how well tabletop RPGs do on KS, when they aren't very expensive to produce, compared to say a video game, but I guess people have more faith that the project will follow through perhaps?

also the woman on the art looks like Uma Thurman

War for the Overworld is chugging along, looks like it will succeed at this pace, but the stretch goals are what I want them to get

I think a major factor is that board game and RPG kickstarters tend to be for finished products- give us $50, and we'll mail you a box as soon as it prints- rather than to fund development- give us $50, and you can download our game in a year and a half. Another large factor is probably the lowered total cost- Disaster Looms tripled their initial goal with less than a thousand backers; for the same multiplier, Wasteland 2 needed 61 thousand backers. I also expect that the average backer of a board game is spending more than the average backer of a computer game, just because board games tend to be more expensive than computer games, and it's significantly easier to compete with top tier board games than it is to compete with top tier computer games.

Bah. I've never really been a fan of Fate games. I've played maybe half-a-dozen sessions total of different flavors. Usually enjoyed myself but not enough to buy any material before.

But, fuck it, everyone I know is being so enthusiastic about it that it's infectious. It's worth a little money to support developers I respect.

What about Champions/Savage Worlds?


*Note - that's to the Imaginary Friends kickstarter, which is for the Champions system.

Imaginary Friends is an adventure for the Hero System/ Champions 6th Edition and Savage Worlds in which invisible playmates come to life with deadly consequences. As much a long-term campaign supplement as an adventure, it features a set of strategies and events using the characters and depicting forces at work, rather than a completely linear narrative.

You'll meet an entertaining array of sinister and unique characters who will engage roleplayers in tests of combat and the mind unlike anything you've seen before! I know you've probably heard that before once or twice, but I really mean it. Every playtest of this adventure has been fantastic, be it rules light or rules heavy.

We hope you'll be pleased and surprised at what you find inside the pages of Imaginary Friends. It's a very different sort of gaming experience.

The line "veteran players and new hopefuls have equal chances" in the trailer, right after they described their randomization procedure (not the ease of learning the rules, say), bothers me in conjunction with the line "easy to learn but hard to master" in the print description.

I'm curious about how well it scales to more players (does it? I suspect they support 4, since 12 streets is neatly divisible by 2, 3, and 4). I can see things turning into a garbled mess where lots of districts stay on the board, but can also see the turn ordering making people try to stake out new territory rather than fight for districts that the other player will get a chance to defend.

War for the Overworld have just done a really good sounding update (in more ways than one), they're doing well so far, but i'm a little worried that they are losing steam, hopefully this update can lure a few more backers.

Yeah they are trend setters right? (although I have seen at least 2 other KS campaigns with playable demos, so not so much) this is the first time i've seen a demo that can run within a browser though, and be available on Windows, Mac and Linux from day 1.
https://wftogame.com/demo

It's a pretty basic demo though, all you can do is run around in possession mode, it's really more to show off graphics, tone and design rather than gameplay. in fact until yesterday's update all you could do was run around, it's being updated regularly with more unlocks like new rooms and creatures, and more optimisation too, for example:
December 10: Rounding up last two updates in one! RTS camera has been added to the showcase and acts as the default. You can possess any imp by clicking on them with hand of evil cursor added. Doors now open and close when imps (or you) go through them. Hand of evil now follows you in possession.
December 7: Cultist added to Gallery for 45k creature reveal! Dungeon heart has spawned 4 Blood Imps that are doing some menial tasks. They are pretty unproductive currently besides some digging. Added more Gold to Treasury and Dungeon Heart. A new room has been dug out but it is very dark...
December 6: Treasury and Gallery doors have been unlocked. Blood Imp model added to the Gallery. Gold added to the Treasury and Dungeon Heart.

The Playable Showcase is a way for you to experience the world we have begun to create. Here, you will assume control of a Blood Imp and be able explore a small dungeon and the surrounding depths. As our Kickstarter Campaign progresses we will be opening doors and adding additional content, so check back regularly!

In case anyone can't play the demo, here is someone that streamed a bit of the gameplay.

If you've read Jane McGonigal's book Reality Is Broken, The Game of Books seems like exactly the kind of game that she was advocating to get people to bring games into a more productive and helpful role in their lives. And, as of today, it has a demo. The project looks like it's getting a huge boost in its final days.

Hello everyone

I have just launched a Project on KickStarter called Picture Clues. Its a puzzle like game for your smartphone. It requires creativity and a little general knowledge. The aim of the game is to identify a coded word using the picture clues. The pictures, which are revealed one at a time, are linked directly or indirectly to the Code Word. How they are linked varies significantly. Some are straight forward references while others require more imagination.

I have put up a video on my KickStarter page where you can play along and get a proper feel of the game. I would be grateful if you could check it out and give me your feedback.

Here's the Link http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/153 ... martphones

Oh lordy. This is a teenager who just got into Maya and is very excitable. I'd bet the two good-looking models in the progress updates are taken from some other game's resources.

Who the hell would pledge $600 for this? Quite certain that's a troll banking on the fact that the project won't fund.

Here is The World of Synnibarr

It is widely regarded as one of the worst role playing games ever. It is messy, unfocused, has poor mechanics, and fails to understand the purpose of the GM. It also holds a special place for several people as it has a lot of heart.
