Kickstarter

I have had a great weekend of gaming but more on that later.

I wasn’t really paying much attention to Kickstarter until the Order of the Stick reprint drive and Double Fine adventures came along. After that it has popped up on my radar several times.

At the moment I have kicked (Funded? What would the correct word be?) several more endeavours for various reasons:

Mobile Frame Zero http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/JoshuaACNewman/mobile-frame-zero-rapid-attack
Lego Mecha! I backed this one because it looked really cool. I found it after it was linked from the very excellent Penny Arcade.


Shadowrun Returns
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1613260297/shadowrun-returns
This one is a 2d computer RPG based on one of my favorite gaming settings. They were successfully funded in just 28 hours and it looks like it is going to be really cool.

Dwimmermount
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/142014231/dwimmermount
I backed this one because I am really enjoying my old school DnD (Dungeons and Dragons) game at the moment. Given the interesting and imaginative content I plan to stick the entire thing into my game map somewhere.
