Looks great! I'm really liking the screenshots of the city and map. If I had a credit card (or a job) maybe I'd shoot some cash your way. ;)

Looks like you've already reached your goal too! Congrats! Please keep us updated on the development! :)


Thanks GnomeSlice.

I really appreciate your endorsement.

Everyone who backs the kickstarter will also get a free Steam and/or Desura key when we are funded as well.

This one is actually a movie, not a game. I think I'll just let the trailer speak for itself.

Rain World
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rai ... rain-world
Rain World is set in an abandoned industrial environment scourged by a shattered eco-system. Bone-crushing intense rain pounds the surface regularly, making life as we know it almost impossible. The creatures in this world hibernate most of the time, but in the few brief dry periods they go out searching for food.

You are a lonely nomadic slugcat, both predator and prey in this land. You must hunt enough food to survive another cycle of hibernation. Other - bigger - creatures have the same plan.

Nowhere

This one isn't using Kickstarter or Indiegogo; they're doing it through their site, but it's still crowdfunding. Just found out about this and am blown away. It's incredibly ambitious, but if they pull it off it could be extremely interesting to play.

Check out the crowdfunding trailer
Join us on a mindbending trip to a world that no man has ever seen before. Discover truth and beauty in a place that follows its own rules and live an alien existence full of meaning and surprises. You are NOWHERE. You are NOW HERE.

Still in early alpha stage, NOWHERE aims to be a holistic first person experience set within a mystic cosmos, focusing on emergent player-driven storytelling, strong social AI and high replayability through the use of procedural content, combining gameplay elements of exploration, survival, strategy, communication and adventure.

Our story arc aims to explore human topics such as family, science, religion, politics, culture and history as well as shed light on existential themes such as fate, choice and free will, seen through the unfamiliar lens of individuals in a post humanist, post singularian alien society.

NOWHERE was born out of the desire to make sense of the human condition through the pursuit of new experiences. We believe that games can relate wisdom; we are convinced that playing games can lead to new perspectives and better life decisions in a fun way. With NOWHERE we aim to contribute to this line of thought.

We launched an IndieGoGo for Tower of Elements 2 to give people another shot at getting on board.

http://igg.frogdice.com

Tower of Elements 2 is a real time strategy and city building game with match-3/tower defense combat. From your capital city you lead your Kingdom against the invading Void Army.

Your strategy, tower defense, and match-3 skills will determine the fate of your armies, but the many political decisions you make as a leader affect the story and the culture of your kingdom.


The game is coming along extremely well and will most likely deliver even sooner than we expected. (some time this coming month, Feb 2014)

The public release will be April 2014. We will be launching it at PAX East 2014.

An ultimate tribute to classic N64 platformers, Distro Horizons takes what made N64 platformers so great and propels it into the future with modern-day gamplay mechanics!

Hive Jump ... only problem is they are asking for too much money ($75k), but they are a team of 8, so it isn't like 1 guy is going to take all the proceeds.

This game looks pretty nice. Kind of reminds me of several different games, including Fez and Proteus
In a remote mountain village, you have retired and built your dream home in order to live out your golden years in peace. Rumors of a mysterious temple beyond the valley have inspired you to set out and explore its ancient halls and crumbling ruins. Once you arrive, it becomes clear that deep within the temple walls, there is something magical that awaits you beyond this world.

Looks great. I'm not fond of their fund target and the dlc tiers, but I'll look forward to the game releasing.
