After 20 years, a return to the post-apocalyptic/medieval world of “Inherit the Earth: Quest for the Orb”… Inherit the Earth: Sand and Shadows Kickstarter ending 8/19/14 The year is 1994, and computer graphics are what you’d expect them to be. “Dark Stalkers” spawns a few years of well-justified John Talbain/Galon rule 34, Sonic meets Tails, ..
[Note: Funding for Wild Warfare is cancelled, and “Redneck Assassin” probably isn’t worth funding anyway…] A couple of fun FPS style video games came up on Kickstarter this last two weeks, worth a look for art if nothing else. Of the three, “Wild Warfare” seems like the one with the strongest business–they’re working from a ..
This week’s illustration is from the Kickstarter campaign for the Sherlock-inspired anthro card deck, The Game Is On. I have a theory that any project coming back for a second round of crowdfunding is just doomed to failure. In the year that I’ve been looking at kickstarters, all the “try-agains!” seem to tank. Even if the ..
One dog’s well-armed quest to find his love… Buck Kickstarter ending 5/28/14 I’m going to go out on a limb here and say there’s not a lot that’s ground-breaking in this game, there are ancient cuneiform tablets describing the first side-scrolling explorers. Heck, Pitfall II had quite a map, and that was on the Atari. So a ..
An animated board and card game for tablet and PC, inspired by Dark Crystal, Red Wall, Talisman, and other fantasy favorites Armello Kickstarter ending 5/8/14 Occasionally, someone will say–of a favorite book, or game, or movie or whatever–that it “transcends genres.” This is rarely literally the case, and yet, here’s Armello, playtested for eight months ..
The latest adult projects from Offbeatr (okay, and one refugee from Kickstarter…) Once again, a sultry figure leans against the wall, concealed by dark shadows behind the “Offbeatr” headquarters. He, or she, or possibly they, stretch a leg out, coquettishly showing a paw, and whispers in a husky voice–to clarify, a low gravely voice, though ..
Explore a virtual world of magic, strange gods, and clashing cultures in what may turn out to be the definitive furry video game experience… Antilia Kickstarter ending 1/28/14 Note: I’m linking the graphics in this article to their originals, so click around. The original illustrations are much stronger than the thumbnails here! Once in a ..
It’s December, and if that very special and perhaps a little depraved someone in your life needs the gift of a big-breasted transgender lupine Choose Your Own Adventure, amply-endowed unguligrade gym bunnies, frolicking and buxom pony satire, or digimon with riding crops and possibly stiletto heels, Offbeatr has something for you. Also, your SO’s needs are ..
Lobodestroyo Take the mix-and-match collecting madness of Metroid: Samus Aran, the boss-battle structure of pretty much any MegaMan title, the graceful and elegant moves of Banjo-Kazooie, a dash of Earthworm Jim’s humor, and just a pinch of Mexican “Luchador” wrestling. Roll generously in wolf fur and serve half-baked. Hello, Lobodestroyo. Lobo is a platformer/collectathon game straight ..
