The Kickstarter Report: 'Tinker'

April 11th - via:
Prepare for a high-flying Steampunk adventure in Tinker, a new sci-fi fantasy webseries that is currently crowdfunding through Kickstarter. Tinker is a series about the Tinkers, a father/daughter team of genius mechanics who live in the overpopulated city of San Francisco. In an alternate history run by bulky and rather finicky machinery, the Tinkers are masters of their craft and are often called upon to repair, invent, and even retrofit anything from large engines to personal wrist watches. When a wealthy noblewoman, Lady Cushing, hires the duo, they are thrust into a world of air ships, danger, and excitement in which the balance of worldly power rests unaware in the tool-calloused hands of the Tinker family. Featuring a stylish Steampunk wardrobe, props, sets, digital environments, and an original score and soundtrack of Steampunk-inspired music, Tinker aims to evolve the genre into a multi-ethnic, culture-exploring, collection of stories that does for Steampunk what Star Trek did for science fiction. (Read More)
