Former animation student at Algonquin College, currently embarking on a bit of soul-seeking to figure out what kind of art I'm really called to make. I have a love for sequential art and animated short films.
What you can expect here is an eclectic mixture of illustration, animation, some good music and some silly fan-stuff. Eventually I'll be adding my own work to the mix, although I'm not sure yet what form it'll take. Just bear with me, you'll see some fun stuff.
A 3D diesel-punk action-adventure game full of crazy weapons, exciting combat and exploration of mysterious underground worlds.
This looks like it’s got a lot of potential. There are elements of Rachet & Clank and Torchlight here, but it’s also its own thing as well. The demo plays smooth as silk in Ultra mode on my Linux box, which it pretty impressive.
Only downside is it’s not recognizing my 360 controller, which I think would be the most intuitive way to play it.
River Town is apparently a next-gen Harvest Moon up on Kickstarter right now, and it doesn’t look too bad at first glance. But there’s a catch. You can only play as a boy. A straight boy.
So what’s the big deal, given that choice is nothing at all unusual? Well, take a look at the stretch goals. Particularly the £50,000 one. That’s where they’re willing to unlock the female and gay options. They’re only willing to add either if they more than double their goal. For something that wouldn’t cost much of anything to add right off the bat.
This is not how diversity is done. Don’t make people poney up so much extra cash just for a little representation when it would be easy to do on the initial budget. Seriously, this turns me off the idea right from the start.
And that’s not even touching on the fact that to judge by the promo material River Town is a whites-only community. Maybe for THREE times the goal they’ll unlock brown folks!
This campaign ends at 5pm next Wednesday, so we are officially in the LAST WEEK! We are nearly at that $11,000 stretch goal (an online tutorial for Nanoloop for Android and iOS users), so I wanted to announce a new batch of stretch goals:300 backers- a special Monobomb Mixtape by DJ Tracer. Featuring cuts off of Destroy All Presets, masterfully mixed with other Monobomb Records artists. (that’s like… 2 more backers)600 backers- When we reach 300 pledges (at any level) I’ll create a mini-comic based on one of the songs. This “Chip Track” will have guitar tabs, lyrics, background info on the song, and original art, and will be available as a PDF for all backers.200 carts- Once we’ve reached 200 Nanoloop carts sold, I’ll publish a small “Quickstart Zine” explaining how to easily get in and play the instrumentals for 1st time Nanoloop users. This will be included with every cart sold, and I’ll also try to put a quickstart video tutorial online too.$16,000 total- this is the big one. If we can reach this goal I’m going to make a kick-ass music video featuring stop motion animation created on a Watercolorbot. These things are amazing, but each frame may take 30 minutes or more to draw… so this will be a month long project at least. Kickstarter backers will get to vote on which of the songs I make. Thanks again for all the suggestions you guys offered for stretch goals, they were a big help! This is our final week and I’m hoping to go out with a big bang. Please help spread the word!
The album is awesome guys, and Doc Pop is awesome too! Go support his project so we can see some of these amazing stretch rewards. They’ll totally be worth it, trust me.
Yasumi Matsuno, the designer behind Final Fantasy Tactics and Vagrant Story, and publisher Playdek are turning to Kickstarter to fund the development of Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians in an effort to bring the tactical role-playing game to PC.
So I backed it at a teeshirt level because I like minimal amounts of swag ha ha but I also want access to the special kickstarter Aerolest job class like IS THAT A CALCULATOR DID YOU ACTUALLY INCLUDE A CALCULATOR JOB CLASS.
Prayer circle it reaches max stretch goals because Hitoshi Sakimoto?? Nintendo 3DS port??????? welcome to things that are important to me.
Anything where Alexander O. Smith is a stretch goal is good times in my book.
Ugh, as an art book lover you have no idea how much I want that $80 level. But can I justify it while I’m still unemployed?
…on the other hand, I should have my tax return by then. Hmmmm.
Do you like action? Do you like adventure? Do you like quirky animated stories?
DO YOU LIKE BROMANCE?
