Molyneux will announce it as a black screen, but when it finally releases it will just turn half your screen light gray.

so about that...the game may already be afoot.

it includes, among other things, a chunk of code in brainf*ck. omgwtfbbq

Ever want a standing desk, but didn't want to shell out a crap ton of money on extension arms, or custom fixed height/motorized adjustable desks?

The UpStanding Desk - Standing Desk Adapter

$25 gets you the plans for 1 of 4 configurations (single or double wide, short or tall), then the desks themselves start at $250+.

I've already made myself an adapter for my desk at work, but it's not adjustable, weighs more than 10 lbs, requires tools to assemble and disassemble, and doesn't breakdown flat. Which means I haven't brought it to my new job, and have been killing myself sitting for the last 4 weeks.

I'm hoping I can split the difference and use one of the various local hacker spaces bots to cut my own wood, and be out for under $150 including shop fees.

That was fun. Looking forward to their series. Wish I saw it before it ended, but I'm laaaaazy.

I was watching it for a week before I backed... should of said something earlier.

I really like the design. An excellent solution.

StarCrawlers

SF based "dungeon crawler" RPG, except in this case the "dungeons" are derelict starships and the like.

Might have to get behind that.

Oh, I definitely am. Scifi dungeon crawling is pretty rare and while I'd rather this be a top down joint, I'm good with 1st person.

Yeah, that definitely massages a soft spot.

I posted this elsewhere, but I'll post it here, too, because I'd like to hope it can be funded. It would be a neat game to have exist.

Slower Than Light
A Hard Sci-Fi 4X game based on the first few millenia of humanity's journey to the stars.

Slower Than Light is a computer game based on the assumption that the speed of light in a vacuum is truly a universal speed limit in our universe. After decades into centuries of trying to find a way around it, humanity has to accept that we will never travel faster than the speed of light, and that if we are going to be exploring and colonizing the galaxy, it is going to be at subluminal speeds.

Shady Kickstarter, cool idea. Probably too shady for me, but it does look fun. Really disorganized.

That's a joke kickstarter, right? It really seems like a joke kickstarter. Also, it seems like it is mocking the "Why aren't there more female protagonists?" question with the "horrible bias in today’s gaming world" comment. Of course, I could just be overreacting on that one.

Honestly this just looks like a bad project all around to me.

Wow. Don't give that money.

I believe the world might be coming to an end, because last night our copy of Doom That Came To Atlantic City showed up.

Granted, they sent it to our old address (where I had to kindly ask the new tennants if a package had arrived that wasn't for them), and the To name was my wife's Kickstarter Username not her full first and last name - but it's in our possession!

I doubt it will be a super-awesome game, but I'm tempted to back it first because of the genius name it has, and second for the general idea.

The creators of Mobile Frame Zero have a new kickstarter: Alpha Bandit.

MFZ is a tactics wargame that uses lego to build mechs. Alpha Bandit is in the same vein, but set in space. From what I recall of MFZ, the PDF contains rules and build diagrams for the game and mechs (and you can download the rules for free).

Did anyone put up the Tactics game set in the Sentinels of the Multiverse world Kickstarter yet? No? Here you go.

Dammit. I see tactics and get all excited, but it's another tabletop board game. That would explains why I didn't know what Sentinels of the Multiverse was.

On the other hand, I see Sentinels of the Multiverse and get excited!

I will probably back this on general principle, since I love Sentinels.

those designs are so sexy and elegant, I had followed the MFZ kickstarter when it first launched but lost track of it along the way, I should really look into the final product.

This looks pretty awesome:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...

You play a rapidly aging hero that explores a procedurally generated world in search of fame and a mate to settle down with before you die. After your life ends, you continue on adventuring as your child. Depending upon your choices, your child will be either more fit to take on the world, or hobbled by your poor decisions.

...

Hero Generations is best described as “The 5-Minute Civilization.” An entire heroic life can be played through in minutes, but chaining together a 2000 year lineage comes from hours of deep strategic play. You move your hero around a procedurally generated grid-based world, and each step they take removes 1 year from their life.

I know this sounds a little cheap... but $500k? That seems to be a high budget to me. I'll back anyways...

I wish the shirts did not say season three.

Wow, the $1000 and $5000 levels are sold out, though I don't know how many were available to begin with - probably only one given the descriptions.

I tried to back it, and indiegogo kept bugging out. It would say that I had not filled in fields that were not there (State field). I really wish they would of done Kickstarter instead, I have tried twice so far to back it and failed T_T.

Outcast HD remake : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...

Interesting. I never played the original but I've somehow ended up with the soundtrack and enjoy that quite a bit. Backed. I got in on the limited number digital release tier, but I'm looking at the $40 tier and there's a thing there that I can't find an explanation for. What the heck is a Zorkin pack?

I'm in the exact same boat and wonder the exact same thing. They don't seem to mention it anywhere...
