A care package from space, and the week’s projects. Illustration from “Fantasy Squish Playing Card Deck,” now on Kickstarter. I am a bit of a ditz. I accept this and embrace it. I also have a bad habit of ordering things on Kickstarter and forgetting about them—and the “surprise, it’s Kickstarter Christmas!” is a part ..
A fur-noir game from the makers of Ironclaw… Urban Jungle: Anthropomorphic Tabletop Role-Play Kickstarter ending 11/8/15 Urban Jungle is Sanguine Games’ latest entry into furry tabletop role play, and it’s unusual in a number of different ways.

An Action/drama tabletop RPG soaring over a war-torn Europe… Wild Skies: Europa Tempest Kickstarter ending 10/31/15 Short and sweet: “Wild Skies” is the first in, ideally, a series of tabletop role-playing games, set in an alternate-history, anthropomorphic world.

How Patreon saved Nerd Rock, and lots of new projects Illustration from “Pixel Monsters” on Kickstarter Nerdcore is one of my favorite musical “genres,” if it can be properly called that.
