Indie Vroom: Super World Karts

August 21st - via:
I’ve been known to indignantly ask myself “Why hasn’t someone done an indie crossover kart racer?” every seven seconds. This has been going on for several years and it’s becoming a little annoying for friends, family and colleagues. Well thank goodness for Paul Hamilton (under the guise of excellently named solo studio One Legged Seagull Games) and his brainchild Super World Karts. It’s a SNES-styled karting game with a cast of both original and guest characters, currently on Kickstarter and looking for $16,000 AUD or just shy of £9,000. (Read More)

Kickstarter Week End. What Launched Aug 3 – 9?

August 11th - via:
Every week (starting now at least) we take a brief look at all of the Kickstarter campaigns that launched in the previous week. This isn’t to say that all of these projects are worth your hard earned cash, but with any luck having all of them in one place will make it easier to educate yourself on the projects you’d like to back, and which ones to run from. You’ll find two types of campaigns listed, “featured” and “the rest“. Featured campaigns are those that contain a significant amount of game information, are from known developers, or are significant in some other way. The rest of the games are usually smaller campaigns that are lacking in information, are from unknowns, have unanswered questions, or have not yet stood out for one reason or another. (Read More)
