Successful Kickstarter Super Dungeon Explore: Legends is now $750,000 in debt two years past its shipping date, with no sign it will ever be shipped to backers.

Mega Drive Kickstarter Success Xeno Crisis Is Getting A Limited Physical Edition On Switch

November 14th - via: nintendolife.com
Bitmap Bureau has revealed that Xeno Crisis - an arcade-style shooter set to launch for the 30-year-old Sega Mega Drive - will also be receiving a physical release on Nintendo Switch. You may remember that, right at the start of the year, we reported on the game's Kickstarter progress, noting that a $65,000 stretch goal was needed to secure a Switch version. Well, that goal was comfortably met and a Switch version has been confirmed for some time, but a much-wanted physical edition for Nintendo's platform was never an absolute certainty. Thankfully, for those who were desperate for a cartridge version, that physical edition is now confirmed to be on the way. (Read More)

Kickstarter Alert! Build a Fantasy Town with Fantasy Facades 3D RPG Terrain

November 14th - via: geekdad.com
I love 3D terrain for tabletop RPGs, and the Fantasy Facades Kickstarter from Bannerless Builds offers a great solution for all your town adventuring needs! I always use figures for my RPG gaming, and even though I primarily use Roll20 for my mapping, I use 3D terrain any time I can. Not only does physical terrain add a beautiful visual element, but I’ve noticed that my players are more likely to think three-dimensionally in terms of their actions when presented with a 3D environment. They start seeing walls to climb, roofs to sneak over, and shadows to hide in. (Read More)

November 10th - via: entertainment-focus.com
October closed with a stunning defeat to the tight-knit Tomb Raider community. Peter Connelly’s Kickstarter to bring the latter classic Tomb Raider games’ (Chronicles, Revelation and Angel of Darkness) music to a remastered symphonic recording was hung up in an ‘all or nothing’ shortage unfortunately only reaching £68,955 out of the £180,000 that was the ultimate goal for funding. Still, the numbers of pledges and participants showed that Tomb Raider fans weren’t going down without a fight, and Peter himself seconded the sentiment by relaunching the Kickstarter out of sheer determination with different parameters and the same rewards all around. (Read More)

Hazelnut Bastille Kickstarter and demo

November 9th - via: rockpapershotgun.com
A good pixelly Zelda-like is always a good way to unwind, and Hazelnut Bastille feels like a very good one indeed. Currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter, the game sailed past initial goals a third of the way in, and is now into stretch goal territory. Developers Aloft Studio can probably attribute most of their crowdfunding success to the game’s extensive demo, available here. Rather than slice a chunk from the final game, it’s a small standalone side-adventure that will take most players at least two or three hours to complete – a nice way to start the weekend. Check out the trailer below. (Read More)
