Alright, some good news.
Trüberbrook. A mystery/sci-fi point&click adventure game set in 1960s Cold War Germany. Handcrafted background with 3d characters with a stylish cartoony artstyle on top. Inspired by X-Files, Twin Peaks, Stranger Things etc. Looks promising. Already funded, €81,903 of €80,000 goal, 28 days to go
Obelus. “A tactical twin-stick shooter”. Pixel art action side-scroller with mech combat, a strong narrative (they claim) and cinematic cut-scenes. On Fig, so you can invest if you want. $23,072 of $50,000 goal, 22 days left.
Destination Primus Vita: Volume 1. A first person narrative adventure/puzzle game. Good art, a diverse character design. Each member of the crew will be the player character in an episode. I like the idea, but the risk is of course that the story will be unfinished if the games don’t sell or crowdfund well. Gameplay seems inspired partly by Telltale. Off to a decent start, CA$ 13,916 pledged of CA$ 50,000, 30 days remaining
Jamie Hyneman’s Virtual Reality Electric Shoes. The Mythbusters host is crowdfunding to do a 7th prototype of the shoes he hopes will solve the problem of movement in VR worlds. On Indie-GoGo, fixed funding (all or nothing, same as on Kickstarter). $8,224 USD of $50,000 goal, one month remaining.
Du Lac & Fey: Dance Of Death. 30% funded so there is a chance, but they need more momentum if they are going to make it. They have released demo footage. £13,835 pledged of £40,000 goal, 24 days to go.
Spinnortality: the cyberpunk management game has reached 30% at €2,929, 27 days to go.
