Kingdom Come Dev Openly Supports #GamerGate, Asks Adam Baldwin To Star In Game

Kingdom Come Deliverance

Some developers are afraid to speak up, some developers are afraid of being blacklisted and some developers are Honey Badgers and they just don’t give a crap. Daniel Vavra is one of those Honey Badgers, he’s the creative director for the Kickstarted game, Kingdom Come: Deliverance – a game, I might add, that has garnered more than $1.9 million in crowd-sourced funding.

Moon Hunters Launches On Kickstarter

Moon Hunters

The media alert from the Games Press resource is only a day late, but it’s better to be a day late than to show up maybe a week later with a coffee-stained shirt, disheveled hair and a touch of death about your face. Because really, when the latter case happens it’s usually preceded by a weekend that would make for a good, raunchy, hard-R Hollywood comedy. Nevertheless, Moon Hunters has already managed to get off to a zippy start after utilizing the Square Enix Collective platform to help build up some community momentum before heading off to Kickstarter.

Kitfox Games (I got it right this time) has announced that their pixel-sprite RPG, Moon Hunters, will be arriving on Kickstarter next week beginning August 26th. The game game shares a very similar design to the upcoming Hyper Light Drifter, giving gamers a multiplayer role-playing experience that combines some of the challenge and quick-wit from the old-school with the dynamic progression and procedural world development from the new-school. After being assessed, poked and prodded by the marketing team at Square Enix through their indie development marketing program called The Collective, Kitfox has decided to take the next step and move their game onto the crowd-funding scene.

Nefarious, Platformer Where Players Are The Bad Guy Aims For Wii U Release

Nefarious

A new game from a group of independent artists and designers called Nefarious sees players assuming the role of the evil villain, appropriately named Crow. The objective of the game? Kidnap princesses, thwart the police and defeat the main hero. The game is every bit as comically nefarious as its name and the art-style and theme is so bewildering that it’s actually quite genius. The game is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter at the moment, and one of its main release platforms is the eighth gen’s most under-appreciated home console… no, I’m not talking about the Ouya; I’m talking about the Wii U.

Super World Karts

Super World Karts is an indie kart-racing game (we’re getting a few of these lately) and it takes a page out of the Apogee handbook by harnessing the old Mode 7 style gameplay like Super Mario Kart on the SNES or Wacky Wheels. The game is currently seeking money over on Kickstarter, as well as support on Steam’s Greenlight service. Most notably is that there’s a stretch goal for the Wii U, Xbox One and PS4.
