@redswir1 @bowlisimo @shingro Kickstarter has had fantastic success with boardgame creation and production, but I think that’s more a reflection of that particular scene. Creators in the past have pitched an idea through manufacturing/publisher houses, audience interest is gauged, then a limited production run is made. With Kickstarter, the money just arrives earlier.
May as well do some house-keeping and updates:
Hotline Miami is coming out in a few days, a.k.a. psychotic Ryan Gosling simulator/rogue-like set in a nightmarish neon wonderland of depravity and carnage.
Krater is getting its long-awaited co-op update and systems/loot/mechanics overhaul, with Mac version to follow hot on its heels. If you’re looking for a slightly different take on the ARPG, this is certainly where you’ll find it.
Brain Candy are updating their slightly wonky but massively-promising Fray with a Reloaded Edition, which is free for prior owners and features single-player training, new UI and overhauled systems plus new maps and accoutrements. Very high hopes for this.
