Rin's Room #35: Four Good Games On Kickstarters Right Now. Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Animation. Media. Entertainment. Woman Owned.

I don’t know about you, but I’m one of those people who love crowdfunding. I love looking at awesome projects with amazing visuals and great stories and seeing them get funded by the communities they’re seeking to contribute to.

I’ve funded way too many projects and enjoyed so many wonderful rewards. I like knowing that my money isn’t (usually) going to a massive corporation just looking to make a profit. Nothing is better than seeing a project get funded and finding the rewards in my mailbox and feeling as if I’ve contributed something to the world. Here are some of the best projects that haven’t been funded yet!

#1 Thea 2: The Shattering

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/muhagames/thea-2-the-shattering

“It’s described as a “turn-based strategy-survival game, with role-playing and card game mechanics and a rich story. Set in a dark fantasy world inspired by Slavic myth and folklore where you–the gods–will guide your people to survival or doom.”

This game is interesting because the actual game is actually funded. Why are they hosting a Kickstarter, then? It’s because they want to add 3D models, especially some custom made, and they want to add some more art and increase the marketing budget! This game is a sequel to the original Thea game, so the developers are pretty trustworthy! We can rest assured knowing they’ll definitely finish the project, and all that’s left to do is wait.


#2 Flynn: Son of Crimson

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thunderhorse/flynn-son-of-crimson-fast-paced-2d-action-platform

Here’s the description from this game’s Kickstarter page:

“Flynn: Son of Crimson is a 2D action adventure platformer with Metroidvania elements. Set in a wondrous world with a looming darkness beginning to awaken yet again.”

I’m really enjoying the retro feel of this game. I’m always a sucker for good pixel art, so this game quickly won my attention! It seems well-produced, and the music is so catchy! I also love the story and character designs: it actually looks like it’d be a great game with lots of action and punch.


#3 Fell Seal: Arbiter’s Mark

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/153039232/fell-seal-arbiters-mark-classic-turn-based-tactica

Fell Seal: Arbiter’s Mark is a story-driven tactical RPG, set in a fantasy world with a touch of steampunk. It features a deep class system, intricate character customization and classic strategic gameplay, 20+ classes, 200+ abilities, 240+ pieces of gear and 40+ different gorgeous environments with full elevation and topology. We’re aiming at 25-35 hours average playthrough, with 10+ hours of optional end-game content.”

AW MAN, CHARACTER CUSTOMIZATION? This is my JAM! This game’s demo is available on Steam and Xbox One–have any of you tried yet? It makes me think of Zenonia, that mobile game that was wildly popular a few years back. It might also remind you of Final Fantasy and Tactics Ogre! Overall I think this seems promising, though the sheer amount of options and variety can be too overwhelming for some.


#4 Lifeless Moon

“During an expedition to the Moon, two astronauts find themselves in a familiar town back on Earth. They soon discover the town is the beginning of a strange and mysterious journey…

Lifeless Moon is a spiritual successor to our previous title Lifeless Planet (PC/Mac/Linux/XB1/PS4). Featuring support for VR (but playable without!), Lifeless Moon takes players on a fantastic journey through the eyes of Apollo-era astronauts. There will be light platforming and a deeper focus on puzzles than in Lifeless Planet. The core gameplay experience is one of exploration and discovery, complementing the mysterious and psychological themes of the story.”

Lifeless Moon is the sequel to Lifeless Planet, which earned an average of 6/10 in ratings from various online websites. That’s pretty good for a first-time game, and it looks like they’ve improved the flaws that were evident in Lifeless Planet to create an enjoyable sequel. I love the story–puzzle psychological adventure!

Those are the four that I’ve been keeping my eye on! I’m planning on funding these soon, even if I don’t spend enough to get rewards. What have been some of your favorite Kickstarter projects in the past? Do any of these seem enticing? Let me know in the comments! 🙂
