Kickstarter Weekly vol. 23

April 16th - via:
Think Spelunky mixed with Mega Man X and you’ll have something pretty close to Echoes of Eridu. It’s an action platformer which apparently plays similar to the Mega Man X games, but comes with a lot of roguelike inspired features, including permadeath and procedurally generated levels. One of the core ideals behind the game is to make it as replayable as possible – you get new stages and challenges thrown at you in each playthrough, and you have multiple very different characters to choose from. (Read More)

Popup Dungeon Pops Up on Kickstarter

April 5th - via:
I’m in that board-gaming mood, readers. The one where the infinite possibilities of pen, paper and manufactured cardboard spread out in front of my mind’s eye. You can do anything! You can be anyone! Shame about all that manual calculation that has to come along with the DIY design and tactility. If only someone, say Triple B Titles, decided to do a Kickstarter that took the customisation of characters and abilities but wrapped it up in a charmingly twee cut-out style. (Read More)
