Kickstarter: HoverGrease

I’m always impressed by the ingenuity, tenacity and general inventiveness of small indie teams. HoverGrease – which is currently seeking funds on Kickstarter – is, almost unbelievably, the work of a two person team, Altergaze. Having already been in development for two and a half years, the team need some assistance to get the game over the finish line. The […]

Kickstarter: BRZRKR

Keanu Reeves has undergone an absolutely incredible career renaissance in recent years, with the John Wick films shooting him into stratospheric heights of popularity that he hasn’t seen since the first Matrix movie way back in 1999. And why not? It’s about time; Reeves is reportedly one of the nicest and most down to earth people working in movies today, […]

Kickstarter: Sniper Elite – The Board Game

I was late to the party with Rebellion’s hugely popular, long-running Sniper Elite series. The first one I played was Sniper Elite 3; I was immediately blown away by the open nature of each stage and the huge variety on offer with which to cause gory, sometimes painfully detailed, chaos. The Sniper Elite games see players cast as – spoiler […]

Kickstarter: Fallen City Brawl

With games such as Streets of Rage 4 bringing the classic, arcade style scrolling beat ’em up back into our living rooms – not to mention countless other examples in recent years, such as Double Dragon Neon and reissues such as the incredible Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle – it seems that the love and nostalgia for the genre is […]

Kickstarter: Neko Ghost, Jump!

I’ve always had a soft spot for cutesy 2D platformers, having grown up playing them in the 80s and 90s – and, mostly thanks to indie developers, they seem to be just as popular as ever today. The 3D platformer has been undergoing a bit of a resurgence recently too, with games such as Yooka-Laylee, not to mention the remastered […]

Kickstarter Update: 7 Fortunes

Brilliant, Greek Mythology-themed board game 7 Fortunes – which I’ve previously covered here – is now in the final stages of its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. With just under three days to go, 7 Fortunes has reached its funding target – which is fantastic news – but there are still some cool stretch goals on offer. Note that backing for […]

Kickstarter: Pixel Bison

Hot on the heels of the well received issue 1 (reviewed by yours truly here), as well as pre-orders now being live for the second issue (here!), creator and editor Andrew McMaster has now launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund the third issue. Though the first and second issues have been self-funded – partly as a proof-of-concept to […]

Kickstarter: 7 Fortunes – Greek Mythology Edition

Please note that the Kickstarter campaign for 7 Fortunes is now live! I’ve always had a huge interest in Greek mythology. Call it narcissistic (which is, of course, appropriate in relation to the subject matter too) but with my name being the same as that of a famous Greek hero (and who I was named after), seeing ‘Jason’ pop up […]

Kickstarter Spotlight: RalphGame

Kickstarter Link here Currently seeking backers on Kickstarter, action RPG RalphGame is looking very promising indeed. Despite old school pixel art visuals, the gameplay is very modern in its design, with an open ended nature that allows you to play however you decide to. I found it very intriguing that no non-story based battles are obligatory, meaning that most battles […]

Kickstarter Campaign: Commander ’85

Currently in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign – and around 40% funded with 27 days to go as of the time of writing – Commander ’85 is an adventure game for PC and consoles, with release planned for Autumn 2020. Capitalising on the currently very widespread nostalgia for the 80s, it’s a game that’s absolutely loaded from top to […]

Indiegogo Spotlight: The Epics of Enkidu

It’s not often that I feature crowdfunding campaigns here, but this one is – in my opinion – deserving of a bit more publicity, especially as I have autism myself; it’s rare that autism spectrum disorder is treated respectfully, positively or by people who genuinely have close experience with the condition. Essentially a sequel to the oldest known story in […]

Pecaminosa – Crowdfunding Campaign Launch

Though I’ve shone a spotlight on Pecaminosa a few times before, the game’s Indiegogo campaign is live as of today – so it’s a great opportunity to spread the word of this wonderful looking game once more. Billed as a ‘Pixel Noir’ game, Pecaminosa is a game that has definitely had my attention for a long time now. Dripping in […]

Randy’s Camera – Kickstarter

Though regular readers of my blog will know that I usually write reviews, previews and retrospectives, today I wanted to do something a little different. I’ve been checking out an indie game called Randy’s Camera, which is currently live and seeking funding on Kickstarter. Randy’s Camera is a 2D platformer with some original mechanics, based around the main character’s magic […]
