Hive Jump

Graphite Lab Games has a kickstarter up that’s about half way funded for their current project Hive Jump.

This highly stylistic sidescroller features per-pixel dynamic lighting using Sprite Lamp and a Gunstar Heroes-like gameplay (remember the old school radial shooters?). This isn’t just a chaotic slaughterfest insecticide however, there’s an actual goal. You’re going for the queen, the heart of this little bug problem.

The game has been Greenlit on Steam, and the kickstarter has 16 days left!

Archaic-Dinosaur-Infested Survival Crafting Game

Playing on our hunger for sandbox survival, Archaic is an upcoming game that has the potential to succeed in areas TellTale Games may have missed in their (sort of) recent iteration of the Jurassic Park game (but we’ll leave that in the past). There’s a kickstarter up as well as a Steam Greenlight Campaign. There’s everything you’d expect in a crafting survival game: Opportunities to gather wood and make a shelter, animals to hunt and eat, and guns to defend yourself against the predators (that’s right, you’re going to be stalked by raptors at night).

The game is in early development, with a decent amount of assets to show off their artistic prowess in-game. Apparently, you’re assigned to defend a team of scientists researching the origins of the dinosaurs, but you know how well that usually works out. The dinosaurs overrun the facility and you escape with your life at least.

There’s a $10,000 goal which seems a bit small for a game of this scale. Though there are stretch ladder goals to add more large dinosaurs.

tuyoart:

Heya!! Super III now has a Kickstarter!! You guys should go check it out!! I’ll be helping out with some of the artwork outside of the game (besides the op title screen thing).

Also here are some things I drew for Super III :0

Wall jumping and screen warping are the gameplay features in this 2d platformer. We’ve been seeing the art going around a bit but it’s really fleshed out into something unique and adorable. The kickstarter is up with an absolutely tangible goal amount. Best of luck to the team and we’ll check back in a week to see where they’re at!

Pumpkin Online Kickstarter Campaign

Upcoming MMORPG that takes the charm of Harvest Moon and infuses it with racial and gender equality, a game you can’t miss. There’s a small handful of games touching on the subject of Human Equality going around on the indie scene if you’re paying attention. For those who are into character customization, there are a few that include more in-depth options like Pumpkin Online allowing people to be who they are in-game. The kickstarter is up with a goal of $30,000 if anyone is interested in the project. Thanks for taking a look!
