Kickstarter Katchup – 21st July 2012

Lots more projects in the loser column this week, although the real plump projects are still in the midst of their runs. Hopefully we’ll be seeing a packed winner column in coming weeks.

The latter is a glorious roguelike that I’ve been playing since I was fifteen. Development ceased in 2002, as creator Thomas Biskup presumably couldn’t devote his entire life to the game but, if he can Indiegoget enough money, he’ll return to development with a small team to help improve the game. Obligatory video below.
