Players control legendary characters recalled from the dead and made immortal by Three Gods, resulting in them being weakened by resurrection, but grow stronger through story-driven quests. (Read More)

Fully Funded Fan Film 'Friday the 13th: Vengeance' Will Be a Sequel to 'Jason Lives,' Starring C.J. Graham

November 5th - via: bloody-disgusting.com
While the official film franchise continues to lay dormant at the bottom of Crystal Lake, fans of Friday the 13th have been taking it upon themselves to continue the saga of Jason Voorhees in their own, totally unofficial ways, with a handful of fan films (including the standout Never Hike Alone) coming along in recent years. Another is soon on the way. Friday the 13th: Vengeance is the latest Friday the 13th fan film to make headlines in the horror community, and it’s notable for smashing its $25,000 Kickstarter goal with, to date, a massive $38,752 in donations. With 19 days still left to go, nearly 100 fans have kicked in to support the project, showing just how hungry fans are for *anything* Voorhees related. (Read More)

Documentary on László Moholy-Nagy and the New Bauhaus movement in Chicago launches kickstarter

November 2nd - via: archinect.com
Next year marks the centennial anniversary of the 1919 founding of Bauhaus in Weimar. The legendary school, started by Walter Gropius, combined fine arts, crafts, and design under one roof, eventually morphing into a global movement as many of its most important artists fled Nazi Germany to other parts of the world. Many of the Bauhaus teachers ended up in the United States, such as László Moholy-Nagy who landed in Chicago in 1937 and opened up the New Bauhaus (later called the Institute of Design). A new documentary, with a recently launched kickstarter, seeks to tell the story of how Moholy-Nagy brought the movement to Chicago, founding America's most influential midcentury school of design. (Read More)

Cullen Bunn Brings Horror Anthology 'A Passage in Black' to Kickstarter

November 2nd - via: horrornewsnetwork.net
The comic book anthology has been synonymous with horror comics since the days of Tales from the Crypt and The Haunt of Fear. While other genres have produced anthology collections, the horror anthology is still the one that most fans think of when the words “anthology” and “comic books” come up. It is also the one that writer Cullen Bunn (a multiple time HNN Comic Award Winner, most recently for his Dark Horse series Harrow County) thinks of and is why the prolific writer is attempting to get his own anthology in comic stores everywhere via a kickstarter campaign. (Read More)

[COMING SOON!] Claustrophobia 1643 Rises Up From the Catacombs on November 6th

November 1st - via: techraptor.net
Claustrophobia is one of those games that I’ve always wanted to play but never got around to. The original game came out in 2009, a time when my core boardgame group was really just testing the waters of competitive games, preferring to stick with cooperative games, and the two player only aspect felt like a limiting factor. The passage of time and exposure to a huge variety of boardgames over the years has really expanded my palette for games, but that also means that some of the games I passed on before that I’d like to play are either out of print, prohibitively expensive, or just plain hard to find. Thankfully, come November 6th, Monolith is taking one of the games I’ve always wanted to play, Claustrophobia, to Kickstarter with an interesting take on production and fulfillment. (Read More)

The Real Folks Blues Kickstarter Zine Celebrates Cowboy Bebop?€™s Enduring Legacy

November 1st - via: pastemagazine.com
There are few anime whose popularity and impact in the West is matched by that of Cowboy Bebop. Produced by Sunrise Inc. and directed by the now-legendary Shinichiro Watanabe, the series is credited not only as a highwater mark for anime of its period, but also for introducing a generation of western audiences to the medium in the early 2000s. Following a misfit crew of bounty hunters searching for their next big score while reconciling with the ghosts of their past, the series set itself apart from its ilk with its mature themes, dazzling animation, anachronistic mashup of sci-fi noir and western action-drama and its unimpeachably iconic score composed by Yoko Kanno and The Seatbelts. (Read More)
