Indielicous Staff Favorite Kickstarter Projects

February 12, 2014 | By | Add a Comment

I back way too many indie game projects on Kickstarter.  I can’t help it.  I wanted to share some of my current favorites.

Darkest Dungeon

First up is Darkest Dungeon by Red Hook Studios.  The game promises to be a fresh take on the traditional RPG Roguelike, adding a new combat system and a stress level mechanic that effects your characters.  This project was funded in under 24 hours and if they keep going at the rate they are, there will be some great stretch goals met.

Nevermind

Next we have Nevermind, described as a biofeedback-enhanced horror adventure game that takes you into the dark and twisted world within the subconscious minds of trauma victims.

 

As you explore surreal labyrinths and solve the puzzles of the mind, a biofeedback sensor monitors how scared or stressed you become with each passing moment. If you let your fears get the best of you, the game will become harder. If you’re able to calm yourself in the face of terror, the game will be more forgiving.

Sounds like an intriguing and novel idea, if not a little gloomy.  The prototype won a bunch of awards and has recieved a whole lot of praise, and now you can help get the game made and released commercially.

Hello Ruby

Finally we have Hello Ruby, which is actually not a game, but a children’s book that teaches programming fundamentals through stories and kid-friendly activities.

 

I’m big on education, especially for computer science, programming and particularly games related programming. As the late, great Whitney Houston sang, I believe the children are our future ..

Go spend a few bucks and support these exciting and interesting projects!
