For this cast, I sat down with Justin Thompson who has been working on the game Bound by Blades for the past few years, and is now going on kickstarter to try and sell the concept of an elevated mobile game.
Last month I got a chance to play through The Dream Machine — A stop motion designed adventure game more than seven years in the making. With the game wrapped up, we turn to another developer who is hoping to find similar success with the game Harold Halibut.
Woven is a passion project to create a game built around creating a variety of creatures from different limbs. Using a yarn aesthetic, the team from Alterego Games and Digital Forest have turned to kickstarter to try and get the project funded. While the kickstarter is going on now, they were kind enough to answer some questions about the game and kickstarter project.
With the big name successes on Kickstarter of companies like Doublefine and Uber Entertainment, it can be easy to forget the smaller projects that have had success. Today’s game: Faster Than Light or FTL is one of those titles: Making over 2000% of what they needed to fund the game. With the game finally out we can see if that money was worth it.
