September 18th - via: pcgamer.com
Traditional point-and-click games are in pretty good shape on PC these days, if you know where to look. Andy was a fan of Wadjet Eye Games' Unavowed, Pip chose The Lion's Song as her personal pick for 2017, and I had a good time with funny occult adventure Darkside Detective last year. That last one is now getting a second 'season', should it hit its modest Kickstarter target of £31,104. As I write this, developer Spooky Doorway is about to cross the halfway point. Since the crowdfunding campaign only began last week, it's looking pretty good for hitting the target. (Read More)

INTERVIEW: Greg Pak and Jonathan Coulton Get the Band Back Together for THE PRINCESS WHO SAVED HER FRIENDS Kickstarter Campaign

September 17th - via: comicsbeat.com
It all started with a pithy observation from writer Greg Pak- "Occurs to me that you could field a pretty awesome supervillain team with characters from @jonathancoulton songs." And thus was born the germ of the idea would lead to two incredible Kickstarter campaign collaborations, Code Monkey Save World, a graphic novel based on the work of cult songwriter Jonathan Coulton and The Princess Who Saved Herself, a children’s book based on another Coulton song. With both projects surpassing their initial goals within 24 hours, I think it’s fair to say Pak and Coulton did not to expect the success of this magnitude with their first outings on the crowding platform. (Read More)

Dusk: Arena of Shadows Now Live on Kickstarter

September 12th - via: tabletop-test.com
Tifa wrote about Dusk: Arena of Shadows in her PAX West 2018: Board Game Spotlight as one of her top three board games available to play that weekend, and it’s not hard to see why. Dusk: Arena of Shadows is a tactical deck builder with “miniatures” combat, sharing some similarity in mechanical concept with the excellent Carthage from SAS Creative. I said “miniatures” in quotes, because the models are very large when compared to your standard miniature fare, with some models at or over 135mm in size! Their figures have all the benefit of increased scale that you’d expect. Careful detail has clearly been sculpted into each piece, and painting them looks to be an easier affair given their larger size. (Read More)
