Kicking Up The Dust: Fargo On Wasteland

Brian Fargo has been talking about the past and future of the Wasteland sequel that he hopes to fund through a Kickstarter campaign, and as many suspected he hasn't suddenly decided to put forward the idea because his eyes sprang out of his head and turned into dollar signs after seeing this action. Nothing of the sort. In an interview with No Mutants Allowed, Fallout's…

Interview: Tim Schafer On Kickstarter, Passion And Dads

Industry legend Tim "Industry Legend" Schafer has been at the front of gaming news for the last couple of weeks. After the twitterstorm that followed Notch's somewhat speculative offer to fund Psychonauts 2 came the record-breaking Kickstarter project, that saw Schafer's company, Double Fine, raise over $2 million in a fortnight. I spoke to him over the weekend to find out how the process has…

In the here and now I have an interview, the first in a series it seems, by Double Fine's Tim talking to Double Fine's Grumpy Gilbert about a genre of game called "Adventure".…

Brian Fargo Turning To Kickstarter For Wasteland 2

At this rate, everybody will soon see their favourite developer starting some kicks or kicking some starters. Brian Fargo, creator of Wasteland, the game that launched a thousand Fallouts, has espied the queue of well-regarded figures approaching their adoring audience cap in hand and is now seeking a cap of his own. It'll be a comically large bit of headwear as he wants to cram…

The first of the promised updates from inside the Fortress of Double Fine, regarding their Kickstarter funded adventure game, has arrived. True to to his word, Tim Shafer waves his sausage, warts and all, in your face with the lumpen, verruca vulgaris covered information there will be additional platforms like Mac, Linux, and handhelds, the game will have English voice-acting, and the text will be…

Planescape Dev Gets ‘Kickstarter Fever’

Eek. We might be about to find out if Tim Schafer’s crowd-funding of a game is one-off lightning in a bottle, or a viable alternative for developers to work outside of publishers. Chris Avellone, the lead developer of isometric RPG classic Planescape Torment and current creative director of Obsidian Entertainment, responded to Michael Antonelli’s suggestion on Twitter that “I'd kickstart $500 for an old school…

Thought: Double Fine’s Kickstarter Asks Big Questions

Tim Schafer says he wants to make an old-school graphic adventure. He also says it's impossible to get publisher funding for such a project. So he turns to the audience, and asks if they want to pay to fund such a thing directly. Via Kickstarter he sets the target at $400,000, probably feeling a little bit guilty about how high a number he's put down,…

Squee! Schafer & Gilbert’s Kickstarter Fund For Adventure

Well this is quite the thing. While we're all in the middle of crossing our fingers, legs and internal organs in the hope that Mojang and Double Fine will find a way to fund a sequel to Psychonauts, Schafer's company have surprised us by announcing they're seeking funding for another dream project - a new "old school" graphic adventure game from Tim Schafer and Ron…

Indie Game: The Movie: The Trailer

Indie Game: The Movie has been in the making for a good while now and all the bits we’ve seen so far have been fairly interesting. The filmmakers are into the final stretch of post-production now and to rally the hounds of publicity they’ve released an official trailer, which I should warn you contains footage of some intense-looking young men in thick-rimmed glasses.

Ticking Over: No Time To Explain Trailer

I'm posting this more as a reminder of No Time To Explain's status than anything else. It started off as a free flash game, then the developers announced they were polishing the game into something more substantial with the best trailer ever made, and since then they've amassed almost $20,000 on their Kickstarter page, shattering their original target of $7,000 like a tiny bird flying…

Knights: Spiral Island Gets Kickstarter Page

I'm really liking what Kickstarter is doing for PC gaming. It's incredible. We've got renowned Interactive Fiction authors quitting their day jobs to make IF full time, indie devs making adventure games flooded with Americana and magical realism and jetpack dinosaur multiplayer extravaganzas, and even a fund for continued development of an indie game arcade in NYC. Beautiful stuff. And here's another one. An indie…

Spiral Talk Orion: Prelude, Kickstarter

If you've been following the development of Orion: Prelude - the sci-fi action game of jetpack combat and dinosaurs - then you might be aware that the recently team appealed to crowd-sourced money thing Kickstarter to get the project funded. I took some time to take to Spiral's David Prassel about raising money through Kickstarter, and the overall state of the project. Read on for…

Kentucky Route Zero Wants Your Money

Cardboard Computer, indie developer of A House In California an the excellent I Can Hold My Breath Forever has created a Kickstarter page for his next game, Kentucky Route Zero. It looks like another riff on the the theme of companionship, but with a much more confident and heavy-handed use of magical realism. Are you sitting comfortably? Then please, watch the video below. If only…

IF Author Raises $10,000 In One Day

Next, another tale of glitz and glamour from the PC's drug-soaked, rock-n-roll interactive fiction community. And by "another" I mean "possibly the first, ever". Highly respected IF author Andrew Plotkin (Spider and Web, Shade and much more) wants to make the switch to writing IF full-time. He created a Kickstarter page, saying that if he raised $8,000 in a month he'd proceed across the rocky…

Empire State Of Mind: Babycastles Kickstarter

There's a lot of kickstarter projects around, but this is one which I think some of you will find interesting. Hell, even the people who will bristle against it. Babycastles is a NYC-based indie-arcade project, and have been doing events for a while. What do they want to do with the money? Take it to central NY: "By presenting six consecutive 2-week exhibitions of independent…
