Hyper Light Drifter backers getting three-day "preview build" next weekend

September 21st - via: pcgamer.com
Hyper Light Drifter is a game about capes and lovely pixel art, and it looks a little something like this. Pink, purple, blue, green—I remember all of those! Gears of War's brown buildings and caves and everything are but a distant memory now. So yes, Hyper Light Drifter has me pretty intrigued, and if I had backed the game on Kickstarter, I'd probably be muttering "hooray" now under my breath. Developers Heart Machine have announced that a "preview build" (basically, a beta with stuff locked off) is going live next weekend, for three of our Earth days only. To get in, you'll need to have stumped up $25 during the Kickstarter or pre-ordered via the game's site, but even if you didn't, I'm sure there will be plenty of footage floating around next weekend. So everybody wins. (Read More)

Flagship Kickstarter: command spaceships from the bridge

September 19th - via: rockpapershotgun.com
Both! Both is good. Lime IN the coconut. Peanut butter AND chocolate spread. First-person and RTS, only in space rather than on the lame-o ground. That’s the concept of Flagship, which Graham rightly dubbed an Admiral Ackbar simulator back in May. It’s a brilliant idea, though the implementation has a lot of challenges–most notably making it significantly different from a standard RTS. Urban Logic Games have detailed some of their plans in the newly released Kickstarter pitch, looking for £95,000 to blast off with. (Read More)

Retro? Modern? This home-brew NES game is both

September 18th - via: engadget.com
Retro gaming projects on Kickstarter are pretty common, but here's one that's a bit different: a game cartridge that, when plugged into the original Nintendo Entertainment System, plays an 8-bit game, and when plugged into a Mac or PC (via USB) plays a modern version of the same game. Perhaps the coolest aspect is that the two versions will interact with each other; an ability or weapon unlocked in one is available to futz with in its cousin. That is, if the project's Kickstarter is funded, of course. (Read More)
