Kickstarter Presents "Age of Grit"

September 1st - via: esbtrib.com
Kickstarter’s “Age of Grit” is an amazing game about a ship, her captain, and her crew. The game holds a brilliant spice of fantasy technology, steam powered airships, clockwork contraptions and floating fortresses. This technology will be advanced but in a cowboy style, with everything using steam power, gears and pistons to operate. “Age of Grit” keeps everything cool about the real historical Old West, but it adds a heavy injection of science fiction. (Read More)

Firefly Goes Full Western Steampunk In Age of Grit

August 20th - via: cliqist.com
Firefly came and went a little too quickly, and the community has definitely demonstrated that sentiment in countless blogs, campaigns, and rants, but after all that, we’re no closer to expanding upon the series itself. The movie killed off some of the most likable characters, so a revival doesn’t seem likely, but the spirit of Firefly lives on in the hearts and minds of many. It was a great show, and since its demise, it’s inspired books, board games, videos, and now video games like Age of Grit. (Read More)
