April 19th - via: playstationlifestyle.net
Firmament, the next game from Rand Miller and Cyan Worlds, needs your help. With less than a week to go in its Kickstarter campaign, the studio needs just a little bit more support to push it over the edge. Sitting at around $880,000 with more than 11,000 backers as of the time of this writing, the goal is set at $1,285,000 to fully fund the project. Projects will often see a burst of support in the final days, but as time is winding down, Firmament needs a bit of a push to get over that threshold. In addition to funding the project, Cyan Worlds recently revealed the first stretch goal: A mac and PS4/PSVR version if the campaign can reach $1.4 million. (Read More)

Cyan announces Firmament

March 1st - via: blog.zarfhome.com
