There wasn’t much in the way of big blockbuster new kickstarters this past week that I noticed so I’d like to take this week’s installment of the kickstarter report to focus on some of the smaller projects that I think look interesting.
First up, we have a mashup between the two classic stories, The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland in the form of The Red Queen of Oz. Take control of Dorothy & Alice in what appears to be a classic adventure game with some light RPG elements. It looks like they’re mostly at the concept art stage (but at least their concept art looks roughly like actual game graphics and is not just pretty shots of the main characters) but I’m a sucker for their source material here so I had to mention it. They’re up to $2k of their $40k goal with 41 days left to go.
Next, we have Full Bore, a 2D puzzle/platformer/exploration game where you explore an underground world as a boar. An attractive pixel art style, a promising-sounding team of developers, and a fun premise (puzzle heavy, non-combat Metroidvania) make this one to watch. They’re currently at just under $2k of their $12.5k goal with 28 days to go.
The Last Door is a 2D horror/adventure title with an art style reminiscent of old Atari games. Inspired by writers like Edgar Allen Poe and H.P. Lovecraft, this episodic horror game series hopes to create an online community that will help to shape and mold future episodes of the game. They’re almost at their goal of £3.8k with £3.2k raised and 7 days to go.
Finally, we have the Nubuwo Winter Bundle is a collection of various videogame inspired music by a variety of composers from around the world. Just a $10 donation gets you almost 200 songs and there are additional awards to be had at higher donation levels. They’re up to $1k of their $8k goal with 12 days left to go.
