Two big wins this week and both are projects that I’ve been intrigued by since I first saw them. Lacuna Passage is the game about mysteries on Mars, using real topography of the Red Planet, and Satellite Reign is the Syndicate successor that promises an emergent cyberpunk city. Excellent news. The two represent different points on the Kickstarter spectrum. One is a project with a (relatively) large goal, a veteran developer and a connection to a recognised franchise. The other is the creation of a team of industry newcomers with no heritage to draw on, a smaller financial goal, and a brilliant central idea backed up by impressive tech. A good week.
