Kickstarter Tabletop Alert: 'Lord of the Chords'

February 12th - via: geekdad.com
I wasn’t a music major in school. I don’t really consider myself a musician. But one of my favorite classes was music theory. My first music theory class was during my senior year of high school. It was a full-year class, and it was amazing. It was also full of terrible music puns, delivered by both the students and the teacher. So when I recently saw an article about a new card game called Lord of the Chords that began with “I Hated Music Theory…”, it caught my attention. When it turned out to also include corny puns, I was locked in. (Read More)

Fight Laser Corgis and Pizza Slimes in 'Lasers & Liches' Retro Tabletop RPG

February 12th - via: comicbook.com
A new crowdfunding campaign is raising money to send players into a neon-lit realm fueled by nostalgia and lasers. Earlier today, Chris Lock and LLuis Abadias launched a Kickstarter to fund Lasers & Liches, a set of campaign setting books built around Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition rules. The new game is set in the Retroverse, an unstable plane built around the concept of "retro-futurism." It's a world driven by childhood nostalgia and advanced science, creating a manic setting that's not unlike some of the more imaginative (and derivative) worlds you'd create as a kid. (Read More)

February 12th - via: shacknews.com
If you've grown bored with all the different quirky sims out there, well, you just haven't laid eyes on DEEEER Simulator: Quite normal deer game. And that's a shame, because this bizarre take on the sim genre is something you need to make sure you keep an eye on. DEEEER Simulator, billed as a "slow life town destruction game," and it's finally picking up steam on Kickstarter after launching on January 29. After taking just a day to hit its crowdfunding goal on Japanese platform Campfire, it hadn't been as successful as it honestly should have been until now. (Read More)

Tabletop Kickstarter Alert: 'Pathogenesis' 2nd Edition

February 12th - via: geekdad.com
Germs against the human body is a battle that has raged since humanity began. On a microscopic scale, it’s a tale of resilience, persistence, and mucus. Lots and lots of mucus. With battles being fought every day, across the globe, it’s a wonder there haven’t been more board games about the classic struggle on the border between health and sickness. One such game is Pathogenesis, now back on Kickstarter, looking for funding for its second edition and a new expansion. (Coincidentally, Pathogenesis dovetails nicely with last week’s Word Wednesday post for The Atlas of Disease.) (Read More)

Finally, a Device for Telling Your Partner You Want to Bang Without Speaking to Them

February 11th - via: nymag.com
Are you in a relationship where you have sex with another person? Great. That’s nice for you, if you’re into having sex with other people. Are you a little fuzzy on how to ask said other person if they’d like to have sex with you? Here’s a refresher. You ask them. You use words — spoken, typed, sky-written — and ask your partner if they are feeling likewise horny. If they consent … then you have sex. If they don’t, then you don’t. And you move along with your life. This is not hard. Particularly if you’re in a relationship where, ostensibly, you and your partner should, hopefully, have some sort of open line of communication about things like sex. (Read More)

“Riders of the Rainbow Ridge” by Diana Paxson Rides Again!

February 11th - via: patheos.com
I don’t feel right talking about things in this blog that aren’t, at least vaguely, Pagan-related. So you haven’t heard much yet about my editorial debut, an anthology of fantasy westerns called Gunsmoke & Dragonfire. But I’m very excited to announce that Diana Paxson will be contributing a story! Diana is known in our community as a leader in Norse Paganism and Goddess Spirituality. She is known outside of our community as the New York Times bestselling author of the Chronicles of Westria, and the co-author of The Mists of Avalon series. As if she weren’t cool enough, she’s also one of the founders of the Society for Creative Anachronism. (Read More)

Kickstarter Alert: ‘On the Trail of … Bigfoot’ with Seth Breedlove and Small Town Monsters

February 7th - via: adventuresinpoortaste.com
This may come as a shock, but we here at AiPT! Science have a huge love for monsters. We’ve explored famous movie monsters, mythological beasts, nightmarish entities from video games and comics, even fiends from outer space, however there’s one group of monsters that grabs our attention regularly: Cryptids. Monsters like Bigfoot, Mothman, and El Chupacabra are exhausting but so much fun to talk about and imagine the “What-if’s.” Those fascinating creatures somehow elude evidence and drive us mad, yet they tend to capture our hearts like no others. (Read More)

TOYS THAT TIME FORGOT VOL 2 – A book about unproduced toys is LIVE on Kickstarter

February 7th - via: actionfigureinsider.com
In early 2017, I brought my new book, TOYS THAT TIME FORGOT VOL 1, to Kickstarter. After the 30-day campaign the book was successfully funded, and in the early fall of 2017, the book was delivered to backers. Reaction to the book was extremely favorable… and humbling. It showcased both unproduced toys from popular properties, such as Star Wars, Sectaurs and Earthworm Jim and complete lines that were never produced like Hasbro’s Dark Crystal, Knickerbocker’s Krull and Mattel’s Fleas. My goal was to both showcase the art and passion that went into these projects as well as showing readers something they had never seen before. There was no other book in the world like TOYS THAT TIME FORGOT VOL 1… until now. (Read More)

Zachtronics book on game design crowdfunding on Kickstarter

I reckon most of the RPS Treehouse gang love us some Zachlikes, since well before Alice Prime coined the term in 2016 in reference to Shenzhen I/O. Puzzlemeister Zach Barth likes the term too, as he’s borrowed it for the title of his book. Currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter (500% funded in one day), Zach-Like shows the workings and the processes behind his practical puzzlers. There’s design docs for his major games, sketches and documents for some that never got made and some early design exercises. There’s even some pen-and-paper brainteasers in there, because we’re gluttons for punishment. (Read More)

One Step From Eden Exceeds Kickstarter Goal

February 7th - via: gamemite.com
One Step From Eden sprang to life from a desire to see a return to the beloved Mega Man Battle Network style of RPG. What started as a portable side game for the Mega Man franchise become one of the Game Boy Advance's most-revered franchises - and resulted in some of the legendary character's best-reviewed games from that time period. With its RPG roots and a bit of card-battling blended in with chips, it stood out from everything else not only in that series, but on the market at the time. Eden offers up a very similar side viewpoint and action, but changes things up as well. (Read More)

4 Games That Will Probably, Definitely, Get Delayed in 2019

If there’s one thing we continue to learn in the video games industry, it’s that Kickstarter campaigns for games seldom go down all that well. Sure, Shenmue III may have blasted through its initial funding target of $2 million in eight hours, but that’s not a guarantee for success. After all, we only need look at the likes of Mighty No. 9’s poor reception, and the never-ending development of Star Citizen to see that things don’t always go the way developers had intended. (Read More)

Kick Back, Relax, and Maybe Save the World in Summer in Mara Kickstarter

February 5th - via: hardcoregamer.com
The sea is a dangerous place, whether that be terrestrial or alien waters. Unpredictable weather leads to storms popping up out of nowhere, pirates roam the shipping lanes, and sometimes boats blow up for reasons that may never be adequately explained. The human Koa was just a baby when the boat she was on exploded, and if it hadn’t been for what became her adoptive grandmother passing on by at the right time she probably wouldn’t have been the only survivor. Koa got lucky, though, so she got to grow into a young child tending her own little island on an ocean planet, with a handful of mysteries kicking around just to keep life interesting. Then the alien Elit come to drain her world of anything that can turn a profit, so like any industrious 10(ish) year old would Koa sets out to… um… peacefully farm and explore the invasion away.
