Kickstarter Projects You Should Pay Attention To 11/21

November 21st - via:
Whew it’s been a crazy few weeks between GDC Next and the PS4/Xbox One launch. We finally have a free second to give some love to the indies. Our brief hiatus has actually given me a ton of perspective, and plenty of time to carefully select this week’s additions. We’re really happy to be receiving a daily flood of emails from project creators! Keep them coming! I’m only one man, and I honestly can’t find every awesome project out there myself. That being said, I hand-picked a couple of these gems while I was at GDC. There’s no better way to get my attention than a hands-on demo of your crowdfunding project. That being said, here’s our lot for this week! (Read More)

While all those games are great, nobody has managed to deliver a game that takes us boldly where no game has gone before. Enter Tiny Trek, a new Kickstarter project from Chris Carson and Gamesare Studios. It’s a randomly generated space-based sim, and it’s a game you’ll definitely want to play… (Read More)
