Despite raising an exorbitant amount of money through Kickstarter, Tim Schafer's Double Fine needed more funds to make Broken Age. This is mostly because the scope of the project just kept growing. They decided to release the first part in order to fund the second - and they have enough funding to complete the project.
A Kickstarter campaign has been launched for GaymerX2 2014; a LGBTQ gamer friendly convention where issues within the community are discussed, while also having all the fun convention stuff.
I've been thinking a lot about betas recently. It started when I played the beta for FFXIV: A Realm Reborn, but it's come back after previewing The Elder Scrolls Online and preparing to play the Titanfall beta. I have certain expectations for Betas - do you have the same?
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, guys. Time to get some flowers and chocolates. Or, if you're like me, nothing! That's right, I don't celebrate V-day. Wait, does that make me even more hipster? Anyway, here's the indie news from the week, all in one place.
Oh look, a place for me to ramble about what I've been up to, or the fact that the week has gone too fast. Nah, I'll just tell you all that there's some cool indie news from this past week that you should read about.
If you’re as a big a fan of good ol’ JRPGs with a tactical side to them as Zoe is, then you’re most likely also crying yourself to sleep every night about the fact that those specific games are quite rare, like a restaurant that actually gives me a well-done steak with scorch marks dammit. But hope is on the horizon, as one veteran of that development scene has a new game on the way.
We're back, baby! That's right, I spent my holiday gorging on food and gaming, recharging those batteries of mine so I can offer you even more excitement and enthusiasm. Also, I indulged my hipster street cred and spent most of that gaming time playing indie games. So, what's new this year (so far) in the world of indie gaming? Take a look.
Are you a lover of video games and of Christ? Well then this is the game for you. A small development studio called Phoenix Interactive Studios are heading towards Kickstarter in an attempt to raise $100 000 to deliver god's game into your hands.
Last night at the Make Games SA community meet up, Chris Bischoff and his brother Nic ("the Business Guy") from The Brotherhood Games came through. Chris agreed to an impromptu Q&A session to discuss Stasis, their Kickstarter and Greenlight.
It's almost the end of the week! Can you believe it? Thursday at last, and I'm ready for a weekend. I think I've earned it. Even if I haven't, I get one anyway. So, let's check out the indie news you may have missed this week.
There are a couple local indie games I've talked about in my weekly indie wrap up (twice) that are seriously needing your support. One of which only has three days left on Kickstarter, so you should go throw money at it.
It's been an interesting week. After a Hansa-filled Rocksmith launch on Tuesday, I seem to have lost track of days of the week. Apparently today is Thursday, which means it's time for some indie news before we prepare for a weekend of gaming. Last weekend I finally finished Bastion, which if you haven't played, you really need to.
Guess what, it's Thursday at last, aka almost-Friday. Joburg has not been kind to me this week, bringing on a heatwave on the day when I had no running water. But I'm finally showered and fresh, and ready to dish out the indie news. Also, this week there's lots of nice LOCAL indie news, so let's check it out.
I can safely say that there is no person alive who did not enjoy the Earthworm Jim games from the 16 bit era. They’re classic, goofy and groovy fun. And you can’t keep a good megadrile down, because Earthworm Jim is making a comeback…in the Boogerman game.
