Kickstarter: Unsung Story

Yes, it’s another Kickstarter.  However, you get a bunch of leeway from me if you create one of my all time favorite games.  I don’t even know what to say if you create two (Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy XII).  Yasumi Matsuno has also created games I enjoyed (Vagrant Story, Tactics Ogre, and Final Fantasy …

Kickstarter: Stonehearth

I think I was a bit burned out on Kickstarter for a while.  I have some sympathy for the founders of Kickstarter since they never planned it to be a game preorder site.  Of course, that’s not what it is.  It’s about microfunding development projects that are near to your heart.  It just so happens …

Match and Magic Kickstarter

Thanks to Tim Schafer, most gamers know about Kickstarter. Now there’s a new game along the lines of Puzzle Quest looking for backers. The game is largely done, but needs money for polish and additional artwork. This might not have caught my interest if Bill Harris, hadn’t fallen in love with the game. So if …
