If you’ve been following this site, then you know I have a love for rogue-likes and mechanic heavy games. And today’s kickstarter for The Darkest Dungeon is a game that practically ticks off every box on my must play checklist, with an awesome Gothic style to boot.
Doublefine has been very busy lately: From bringing kickstarter to the public eye not once but twice and working on Broken Age, Massive Chalice and the Amnesia fortnight game jam. This is where today’s game came from:Spacebase DF-9. And while the game is far from being completed, there is a lot to look forward to.
Introversion Software have been in the Indie community since 2001 and was one of the first Indie studios to not adhere to making just one type of game. Their previous games of Uplink, Darwinia, Multiwinia and Defcon couldn’t be further from each other in terms of design. But their latest game: Prison Architect looks to take inspiration from one of my favorite genres and go in a very different direction.
As we’ve seen this year on Kickstarter with so many projects being launched, getting your game noticed is becoming harder and harder. And simply having an interesting idea is not enough, you need to show people that your idea is not only concrete, but worth it. And today’s kickstarter is for a project that has spent a lot of time getting ready.
