Kickstarter Game Developer Haiku Collection

September 2nd - via: cliqist.com
It’s a bit of a tradition that whenever I interview someone for Cliqist I ask them to put together a brief haiku to describe them, their company, or their game. Since we’re celebrating the one year anniversary of Cliqist this week I figure it would be as good a time as any to look back at some of them. All the haiku’s were written by the person being interviewed, and are listed in the order in which they appeared on the site. Some are great, some not so much, but each is interesting in its own right. (Read More)

Kickstart This! The Guinness Aftermath Edition

March 27th - via: warpzoned.com
While most of Ireland went about their business as usual on March 17th, many parts of the world decided to paint themselves green and drink several pints of the black stuff to commemorate the man who drove the snakes from the Emerald Isle. It doesn’t matter that these people are not really Irish, that St. Patrick probably didn’t drive out the snakes (as there were no snakes to begin with), or that the saint’s real colour is blue. The true meaning of St. Paddy’s Day is less about the man and his legend, and more about the celebration and enjoyment of life. (Read More)

March 25th - via: cliqist.com
The recently launched Kickstarter campaign for The Seed is an unusual one.

Visual Novel + The Road = The Seed

March 20th - via: cliqist.com
When I first read The Road I was completely overwhelmed. Cormac McCarthy’s story of a man and his son in the post apocalyptic hellscape that Earth had become suffocated me mentally and emotionally. During the few days that it took me to complete the book I felt an overwhelming mix of despair and emptiness that hung over everything I did. Daily tasks became empty movements. Personal interactions passed through me with no meaning. Food became a joyless necessity. And for some reason I loved every minute of it, McCarthy’s words transported me to a place I hate, but couldn’t bear to leave. Rarely has a game done that to me, but that might be changing. (Read More)
