Kickstarter Weekly – Aug. 30, 2013

30 08 2013

Well, our little experiment last week resulted in a much different outcome than we thought it would. Thanks again everyone for the feedback! We’re back to normal for now, until we decide to rock the boat again!

Speaking of new things, you may have missed it yesterday, (we had a little hiccup with our email delivery system!) but we have officially launched the Theology of Games podcast! You can find it on iTunes by following this link RIGHT HERE!!! We’re very excited about this, and would love any and all feedback!

Anyway, there’s lots of stuff going down on Kickstarter this week, so let’s jump in!

Fantasy FrontierFantasy Frontier – Gamelyn Games

We’re really excited for this one! Gamelyn Games, which brought us Dungeon Heroes, is bringing us this worker- and tile-placement game that has players exploring a new frontier in steampunky dirigibles! Check back soon for an interview with Michael about this, and all things Gamelyn Games! The campaign is chugging along and is about 20% funded after just 24 hours.

A pledge of $45 gets you in on a copy of the game, and you can check out the campaign, right here!

 

Cthulu CardsThe Cards of Cthulhu – Dan Verssen Games

Yep, it’s another Cthulhu themed game. This time featuring a solitaire to 4-player system, </begin obligatory Cthulhu game description> players take on the roles of investigators trying to save the world from eternal torment, from the elder gods. </end obligatory Cthulhu game description>. The game system looks interesting on this one, and they’ve blown past their funding goal within the first 24 hours.

They’ve unlocked a lot of stretch goals and a $30 pledge gets you in on the fun, and you can check out the campaign, right here!

 

infamyInfamy – Mercury Games Inc.

This is Mercury Games’ sophomore Kickstarter voyage after a successful first go-around. Infamy is a bidding-based game set in a cyberpunk realm,

$45 gets you a copy of the game and they’re limiting the amount of pledges to 2,000, although it doesn’t seem yet that their going to be turning folks away. You can check out the campaign, right here.

 

Burning SunsBurning Suns – Sun Tzu Games

It’s really hard to tell a whole lot about the game play of this from the main video on the campaign. But check out those sweet die-ships! The game looks to be just the beginning of what will expand into something larger if they get the chance to bring it to market.

For a pledge of 45 pounds (About $69 usd) you get the entire game, plus anything else that is unlocked during the campaign. Speaking of which you can check it out here!

Funded!

A few campaigns have closed recently…

TemplarTemplar the Secret Treasures – Queen Games

So you’re basically hiding treasure in an Abbey and trying to keep it safe. Looks like a fun game, but you’re going to have to wait until it hits the shelves! You can take a look at the campaign, right here!

 

duel thanksA Duel Betwixt Us – Game Salute

The game was 624% funded. Yeah I’d say that was successful! We’re pretty excited about this one. You can check out the campaign here, and our interview with co-designer Laurence Honderick too!

Whaaa happened?

PrivateerPrivateer – Ensignia Games

For some reason unbeknownst to us the campaign for Privateer has been canceled by Ensignia Games. This is a shame because the game looks great. We’ve reached out to Ensignia to see if they have any plans to relaunch the campaign. (The first one was doing great, just about $4,000 short of the goal with over 3 weeks left!) We’re really hoping that we see this one re-launch soon!

That’s it for now! Is there something cool you’re backing that we missed? (I wouldn’t doubt it!) Let us know!

Thanks so much for reading, please take a few seconds and subscribe to the blog over on the right. And look us up on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube! And don’t forget the brand-spanking new podcast! Just click this little ol’ link here to find that!!

You missed Septikon – Uranium Mining… I’ve been playing a review copy of it and having a blast.

I really like your reviews and blogs so i was excited to find out that you have a podcast. However, I do have hopefully some constructive criticism. Please slow the podcast down. It is very distracting that you are trying to crunch it together to save time. I would not mind listening for longer in fact I would greatly enjoy it over listening to a sped up version. The only thing missing seems to be the Alvin and the chipmunks voices. That’s all. Other than that, just keep up the good work. Hope you get some sponsors soon so all your hard work will pay off.

Hey Nathan!

Thanks so much for the feedback. We’re trying to walk a fine line with the podcast, by getting useful/enjoyable content into it, but also not dragging things out. Somewhere in there is the happy medium (we hope!). We’ve already recorded the second episode and feel like we’ve made giant leaps in the right direction with it! We’d love to hear your thoughts on that when we post it!!
Thanks so much for listening! Seriously! That’s awesome!
