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 […]

400

It’s not the most dramatic number, is it? 400 is like an awkward middle ground between the Sparta-invoking 300 and the half century grandness of 500. Yet it’s still a pretty big milestone for me. A little over a year ago, I had barely a handful of published articles to my name – and most of those were written and […]

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 […]

Kickstarter Spotlight: The Star Legation

From time to time, I come across – or have my attention drawn to – some really promising projects in development. In this instance, Andy Mitchell – the creator of The Star Legation – reached out and asked me to check out the demo for his game. After taking the time to play through the generously sized demo, I’ve been […]

Kickstarter: DicTater

I’ve always enjoyed Civ games – and turn based strategy games in general, but there’s always one problem: I’m awful at them. I seem to spend ages mucking around at a prehistoric level of development – when I finally encounter AI colonies, they’ve always outpaced me in technology and weapons by a good few hundred years, somehow. Still, I love […]

Corpus Malicious – Update

I featured the deliciously dark DnD 5e companion Corpus Malicious shortly after its crowdfunding campaign launched on Kickstarter (at which point, impressively, it had already smashed its funding goal) – and, with ten days to go on the campaign, I thought I’d check in and see how it was doing. Turns out the answer to that is very well indeed. […]

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 […]
