Two awesome projects are now underway on Kickstarter. Both are games by fellow Booters. Needless to say, I am backing each one.
The first board game, entitled "Ghost Pirates", is by Tim Rodriguez of Dice Food Lodging fame. There are cards, tokens and dice. How could you possibly go wrong with that? I'm looking forward to some strategy and crunch, so I signed up for a production copy of the game. Tim is already about 1/3rd to his $7500 goal.
The second Kickstarter is an iPhone branching text adventure game called "Narratavius" by Michael Ham and several authors. It echoes old text-based titles like Adventure, but the demo video is most reminiscent of the recent Action Castle. Michael & Co. have already exceeded 50% of their modest $600 goal, making it likely that they'll hit the funding threshold.
