Weekly Launchpad. What Kickstarters Launched Sep 7 – 13

September 14th - via: cliqist.com
Every week 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)

Phantasmal: Randomly Generated Horror Hits Kickstarter

September 13th - via: nichegamer.net
While I’ve always loved horror games such as Amnesia and D’s Diner, I tend to put them away after my initial play-through of them and very rarely (if ever) go back to them. One of the downsides of such highly scripted horror games is that once you get scared by an event, you are highly unlikely to get startled the next time you see it. No matter how frightening that giant spider was that dropped down from the ceiling and chewed your head off was, it just doesn’t create the same level of intensity the second time as it did the first. It’s just a simple fact that can’t be avoided. (Read More)

Roguelikelike Horror FPS Phantasmal Haunting Kickstarter

September 10th - via: rockpapershotgun.com
I can only write boo! so many times before it stops making you convulse in terror. I’ve probably exhausted that. But what if I were to say wooOoOOo! or the sound of a dracula laughing? Why, look at you: you’re shivering and shrieking all over again! Unpredictability can help sell scares, see, which is why frightful FPS Phantasmal‘s spooky mansion is made of procedurally-generated levels, different every life. It’s aiming at Lovecraft-tinged survival horror with few guns, breakable melee weapons, limited supplies, a need to sneak in shadows, and plenty of growing dread. And Kickstarter money. It’s after Kickstarter money. (Read More)

Exprience Proceedurally Generated Horror in Phantasmal

September 10th - via: cliqist.com
What makes games frightening? Whatever the answer is, it seems that big publishers lost touch with scariness long ago. Phantasmal is an upcoming game that believes it has the formula for fear down. They believe that much of what makes a good horror game is never knowing what’s next. As such, every level of the game will be procedurally generated, allowing for different experiences each playthrough. The idea makes tons of sense but somehow we’ve only seen a few horror games, such as Daylight, attempt it before. (Read More)
