Kickstarter Picks - February Edition

February 4th - via: gamrreview.com
Man’s fascination with robots has been around since the early 1930’s. Since then it has expanded from the simple notion of humanoid robots. The biggest craze as of late has been man-controlled robots, or “Mechas”. These mechas have grown popular in Japan thanks to the Gundam franchise and in the US thanks to Chromehounds, Hawken, and others. M.A.V. (Modular Assault Vehicle) is being created by Chad Mauldin, a veteran of the gaming industry who has worked on Fear 3, Borderlands 2, and more. (Read More)

Existentialism in Rain World

January 28th - via: cliqist.com
I cannot place my origin in this lonesome landscape. It is nothing more than a place of ruin and chaos. My surroundings are merely pipes and destroyed buildings from long ago; the remnant pieces of an ancient world long gone. The continuous rainfall cripples my body into a frequent state of hibernation, the pounding rain too much to bear. Any creatures alive in this desolate land seek relief for their hunger during the brief moments of dry weather. Oh, the hunger.. (Read More)

Slugcats and survival: staying alive in the darkness of 'Rain World'

January 17th - via: theverge.com
It all started with a half slug, half cat alien creature. Slugcat, as it's known, is the star of the upcoming Rain World, an intriguing survival game that just launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund development. The game’s unique world and retro feel are part of its charm, but it’s the main character that is at the center of the experience. "I don't want to tell you if it's more slug or more cat," co-developer Joar Jakobsson says, "because that is better if left to interpretation." (Read More)
