Kickstarter thread: Kick all the things!
With all the cool stuff lately on Kickstarter, and the roaring success of Starlight Inception, how about a general Kickstarter thread? Any projects you've kicked, or anything you think we might like to see, put it all here.

Whether they're still open for pledges or closed but worth keeping an eye on, post 'em!

I've got a bunch, but I'll just start with one: Xenonauts is on Kickstarter! That's right, the fan-made, spiritual successor to X-COM (no offense, UFO AI) is now available for pre-order!

Re: Kickstarter thread: Kick all the things!
This seems pretty interesting. Looks like "Darkstar One done right", but on LSD. It seems they even have a lot of finished assets to show.

10hrs left!  This is a dungeon crawler from some of the people who made Titan Quest, which is one of the best dungeon crawlers.

Re: Kickstarter thread: Kick all the things!
I suppose I should have put this up earlier, like before there were only 4 hours to go, but Legends of Eisenwald looks to be really interesting.

I'm not quite sure how to describe it, but Age of Empires meets Fire Emblem seems accurate enough. Only $15, and you have 4 hours to do it!

 
Re: Kickstarter thread: Kick all the things!
BUMP!

All of those projects have finished their kickstarters, so I would like to direct your attention to Castle Story:
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/902505202/castle-story

Notch himself is watching and kicking this very project. It's a voxel based castle buildy-management tower defense game, and apparently there's stone guys who attack your castle periodically.

 
Re: Kickstarter thread: Kick all the things!
Two more:

A first/third-person medieval combat game from the makers of the HL2 mod, Age of Chivalry. It's got swords, axes, bows, beheadings, brutal melee combat, and everything you'd expect from something like this. Picture a multiplayer Mount & Blade with better graphics and all combat.
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare

And a hex-based strategy and tactics game about conquering the new world! Picture a cross between Fire Emblem and X-COM (or Hammer and Sickle), but with conquistadors, and also a lot more options besides only fighting every mission.
Expeditions: Conquistador

I know, huh? And there's a thread about that too already: http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=81581.0

It has been mentioned before, but always as an aside in already-established topics.  Finally, a game that lets me be an elven cyborg samurai or a dwarven computer hacker!

Yes, its over, but look at how far over it went!

[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Anyone remember Sierra's Outpost? Well, no wonder you don't, as it was a rather obscure yet initially high-profile space-station management sim that promised much but, sadly, delivered little. It also made sure that I imagined a strategy/god game set in space that would probably never exist. Until Simon Roth's Maia, that is; an incredibly ambitious indie project that already looks pretty impressive and promises to blend elements of Dungeon Keeper, SimCity, Dwarf Fortress, the works of both Arthur Clarke and Douglas Adams, and a brilliant '70s sci-fi aesthetic into one cohesive whole.

Yes! I remember Outpost!

Well, I'm not sure it was good, but it was much closer to what Outpost promised to be. The funny thing is I have the original Outpost strategy guide, and it was clearly written with the game as it was supposed to be, rather than the game as it actually was, in mind. I've always wondered how that happened because you usually have to play it to write the strategy guide...

Re: Kickstarter thread: Kick all the things!
Hi again! Might as well put this out there too:

Running-away simulator pits you against murderous tweed-clad robots who systematically hunt you through a procedurally generated British island.

Waiwaiwait...someone's making a game out of The Most Dangerous Game?  That's fantastic. :D
