Fortis Rex Still Chugging Along

March 6th - via: cliqist.com
If you keep a regular eye on Kickstarter then you’ve no doubt come across Fortis Rex: Rise of the King. Having gone through 5 funding campaigns it seems like you could select a random campaign and come across one of Fortis Rexs’. It’s great that the developer is being so persistent though, an RPG where you control an army of soldiers in an attempt to control as much land as possible is intriguing. So far it looks like things are paying off, the medieval era RPG is coming along pretty well based on the slew of new screenshots released. (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup – 10th February 2013

February 10th - via: rockpapershotgun.com
In terms of anticipation and dollars pledged, this has been the week of Dreamfall Chapters but you already knew about that one, right? The Katchup concerns itself with all Kreatures, great and small, and there are plenty of newcomers this week, including Tom Hall’s keen platforming tools, Projects Awakened and Cornerstone, the mad and possibly brilliant Ritual Dementia and gorgeous light-speed drifter, Race The Sun. Some projects are teetering on the brink of failure but, as we have seen with the adventure game in the past, any news reports of Kickstarter’s death are entirely premature. (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup

January 27th - via: rockpapershotgun.com
This week, spaceships are constructed, nobody loses and the Katchup features an open source 3D engine Linux port, which certainly sounds like the sort of thing that should be happening but also makes me realise how little I know about the availability of engine licenses and the complexities of game development. Maybe I’ll ask Jim to teach me, although I reckon most of his input on Sir, You Are Being Hunted involves polite requests for ‘more robots and tea’. (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup

January 20th - via: rockpapershotgun.com
It’s taken me longer than I’d hoped, but I’ve finally managed to exorcise the last spirits of 2012 from the Kickstarter Katchup and the 2013 instalments can now begin. The extended break has left us with a lot to katch up on so there will be a lot of winners and losers this week, covering many of the games in the last Katchup. I’m not going to list every game that failed to reach its target but all the winners will be there, as well as any that are of particular interest or have detailed plans for the future. (Read More)
