Kickstarter Katchup – 28th July 2013

July 28th - via:
Two big wins this week and both are projects that I’ve been intrigued by since I first saw them. Lacuna Passage is the game about mysteries on Mars, using real topography of the Red Planet, and Satellite Reign is the Syndicate successor that promises an emergent cyberpunk city. Excellent news. (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup – 21st July 2013

July 21st - via:
There have been plenty of weeks with no losers and several winners, but I can’t remember compiling this column and finding losers without winners to sit above them. There are lots of projects that are readying themselves for a spot in the winners’ section though, propped on the podium, parading their plaudits. Dungeonmans and Tangiers are my current favourites, with Monochroma not far behind. It’s a busy week though and there should be something for everyone. Except sports fans. Nothing for sports fans. Probably the least Kickstarted genre actually. Licensing issues to blame? (Read More)

[Look At] The [Adventurezator] [Trailer]

July 19th - via:
There are very good reasons why adventure games are not emergent. If the colander isn’t found under the pig then there will be no way to strain the pasta to feed to the the astronaut that will make him bloated so he’ll adjust the orbit of the moon so that the waves are choppier and the lady on the boat leaves her door unlocked because she needs to go hurl. It just won’t happen. But that’s part of a problem with the mechanics of adventure games that Adventurezator: When Pigs Fly is attempting to solve. It’s an adventure puzzle game that emergently generates puzzles with solveable solutions. What I’m saying is: if you have a sieve instead of a colander, that’ll work just as well. In addition to that, players can easily build their own puzzles. (Read More)
