An online CCG with literally all the cats. Catamancer On Kickstarter through 11/29/15 Catamancer, now on Kickstarter, isn’t specifically a furry product.

But ..
Three anthro-oriented games that you might have missed… A big problem in the “Kickstart your Indie Video Game” world—as covered in A No-Name Developer’s Guide to Succeeding on Kickstarter—is that the indie market is frankly saturated.

A net.legend comes to completion in the not-quite-Pony fighting game… Them’s Fightin Words Indiegogo ending 10/21/15 [Before I get too deep in the weeds, I should point out, top of the page, that this game is on Steam Greenlight, where much more game-savvy reviewers will take it apart for your reading pleasure…] The story is almost ..

A frantic first-person shooter in a colorful fusion of sci-fi and Egyptian myth… Retroblazer Kickstarter ending 2/22/15 Just a quick and loose look at a video game now on Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight.
