Heroic: The Banner Saga Funded In Just 48 Hours

Morning, Internet. Lovely news from the West: The Banner Saga has been funded on over on Kickstarter. The collective approval of the internet found its way to over $100k in just 48 hours to ensure that the beautiful-looking turn-based RPG with Vikings would find its way into our game collections. This pleases me. Now let's hope that Stoic - a handful of ex-Bioware staff -…

Baldur’s Gate III: “We’re Totally Thinking Kickstarter”

Oh boy. Here's my theory - throughout the year there will be numerous Kickstarter projects that people become excited about, pledge money to and then look forward to. Fatigue will set in due to the number of awesome concepts being put forward by wonderful people, but it isn't fatigue alone that will end this fascination. My belief is that one day the perfect Platonic ideal…

Loot, Pillage, Fund: The Banner Saga’s Kickstarter

Turn-based combat, a low-fantasy approach to vikings and a scenario that is more concerned with surviving a world's end than preventing it. That's what The Banner Saga promises, as well as beautiful animation, conversations with consequences and a changeable world that doesn't revolve around the player. It's the kind of shopping list I so often take to the supermarket, only to return with the ingredients…

Finalising The Frontier: FTL Footage

You can't spell 'futile' without 'FTL', and demonstrating randomly generated and bastardly tough space roguelike FTL without flicking some special developer switches seems, to me, the very definition of it. But the FTL devs are brave space types, venturing into the depths of their wonderful space-ship management sim to show off the new additions. Their 1000% Kickstarter funded indie game was already amazing, but they're…

Form(icidae) A Queue To Kickstart The Ant Experiment

The Ant Experiment is one of the more bizarre ideas out there: an MMO in which players will form an ant colony, which means large scale co-operative mandible-ing and ant-based problems, like "Who signed this release form saying David Attenborough was allowed to film us having sex?", and "How did we get in this person's pants?" Indie studio BlackCherry are looking for your help to…

Three Million Dollars Pledged To Double Fine

I wonder how Kickstarter will deliver the money that's been pledged to Double Fine to make their game? The magic number of three million dollars has just been crossed with 11 hours still to go, so the Double Fine Adventure is go. It was "go" a few hours after it launched, so now I've rendered the term meaningless. Please strike it from your dictionaries. But…

Fall In: Wasteland 2 Kickstarter Is Live

You've read the interview (right?), some of you have even tried to throw money at the screen, and now the screen will actually accept your money if this is something you'd like to support. The Kickstarter page for Wasteland 2 is now live and is currently receiving about $1,000 per sentence I write, which means I should stop writing sentences and just paste in the…

Post-Post-Nuclear Roleplaying: Fargo Talks Wasteland 2

Interplay founder Brian Fargo and his studio inXile Entertainment hope to be responsible for the next big Kickstarter-funded game, having recently announced plans for a sequel to Fargo's 1988 roleplaying game Wasteland - perhaps best known as the predecessor to Fallout. Wasteland 2 will be a turn-based, party-based roleplaying game in a post-apocalyptic setting - in other words, in theory what veteran Fallout fans have…

Not An RPG: Crowdsourced Hardcore Tactical Shooter

Tim Schafer has taught game developers how to dream...how to dream about having piles of cash to work on projects that they reckon people crave enough to pledge some of Earth's rapidly dwindling stockpile of money for. The latest veteran to pitch to the public is Christian Allen of Serellan. Admittedly I didn't know the name but it turns out Mr Allen has worked on…

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…

Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert Gabbin’ About Games

John spent this weekend glowing after interviewing Tim Schafer on Friday evening. He's listening to it right now, so he can make text zaps for your eye goo. But that's this afternoon-ish. 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".…

20 Goto Hell In Code Hero

I thought writing about else { Heart.break() } would prove to be a novelty, but three days later here I am, telling you about another game that lets you fiddle in its innards. I am now the official RPS expert, sorry "expert", on games that allow you to alter their code: Code Hero is a Unity engine game where you have a code gun that…

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…

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,…
