Here's a cool looking Kickstarter project: Blood Alloy, a dystopian Metroidvania inspired by Dark Souls and Vanquish. They want $50,000.
And they estimate shipping September of 2014...
After Double Fine Adventure, Wasteland 2, Knock Knock, Star Command and Planetary Annihilation in 2012 and seeing absolutely nothing I'm out.
It's horrible but I'll gladly pay $5-10 more WHEN these come out. That or kickstarter needs to revamp how they apply funding for these ideas. Along the lines with having a physical real prototype I would like to see something else applied to the video games side.
Right now here is most of what I see/hear from the video games I've backed:
"It's totally great, we can make OUR game and not some game THE MAN tells us too"
-9 months later-
"All the amazing ideas we've come up with WILL TOTALLY be in the game! But we need more time to realize them"
-18 months later-
"We are doing our best, so just lay off with the negativity, looking back we could have handled things differently. Also we have reached out to THE MAN to handle distribution and aren't compromising our vision, just making changes to get the game to you"
