Virtual Cities - An Atlas & Exploration of Video Game Cities. Konstantinos Dimopoulos, indie game creator of The Sea will Claim Everything, writer on The Talos Principle (edit: wrong guy, I’m an idiot, that’s Jonas Kyratses) and also I believe occasional RPS contributor, has started crowdfunding a book about the maps and architecture of cities in games, called Virtual Cities, together with artist Maria Kallikaki.
Xenosis on Fig, a top down exploration/horror/shooter game set aboard the starship Carpathian. Unlike most of these, it is not a randomly generated roguelike, but a handcrafted ship with decks having different sections. So a top down Prey/System Shock maybe? Pixel art, but modern lightning. Doing ok, 90 % funded with 32 days left
Etherborn on Fig. An environmental puzzle platformer with shifting gravity. The bright pastel colors and geometric environments remind me a bit of Monument Valley, though this seems to have a bit more complex mechanics and puzzles. Might make it but if so it’s going to be close, so if you want it, back it. 54% there with 18 days remaining.
Tala, an explorational puzzle game that mixes nature photography with traditional animation, to create a charming Samarost-like world.
Paradox Con is this weekend, and they announced that they are making boardgames out of several of their titles. First up is Crusader Kings, created in cooperation with Fria Ligan (The Free League), the Swedish p&p company which you might recognize from Coriolis, Kult, Simon Stålenhage’s Tales from the Loop, and Mutant: Year 0 which has a XCom like PC game in the works.
And not PC games related, but if you like Hellboy (and who doesn’t?), there is a tabletop game campaign with over $1 million raised, 5 days left.
Myst 25th anniversary edition is over $2 million, 4 days left.
Backbone, the pixel art noir adventure game starring a trenchcoated raccoon just made it, with one week to go to reach stretch goals.
198x arcade action nostalgia mentioned by @icemann above is 95 % funded with 12 days left.
