Kickstarter Katchup

April 14th - via:
Last weekend took on a life of its own, which is the sort of thing weekends should probably do more often, and I was stranded away from my trusty keyboard and therefore unable to type words about games that might exist at some point in the future. This was a sad thing. Fortunately, missing a week means that there are more winners than ever before and the bumper crop contains two games that I’ve played and enjoyed, at least three that I look forward to playing when they are released and a project that makes me realise how much I want to play with an Oculus Rift. (Read More)

A few winners, a few losers and a heap of new entries.

Then feel a bit morose that Rogue System probably isn’t going to be on your computer for a long time. (Read More)
