Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: Dulce #2

Every conspiracy ever is real. These guys don’t want you to know that.

Marcus has been working at the secret underground base under Dulce, New Mexico for a short time now.  When he and investigative reporter Maria Garza are pulled into a whole new realm of existence within the base, it’s up to the two of them to figure out an escape.  The latest story blows the base wide open for the reader to explore, with an expanded cast, and a brand new menace!

If that doesn’t sound absolutely like something you need to read, I just don’t know what to say…No, wait. I do. Go check out the 6 page preview on the Kickstarter page and let it change your mind. This is one project that you really need to get your fingers and eyes on. Didn’t get issue #1? So? Get it now alongside issue #2!

Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: Foxy and Wolfy Vol. 1

Foxy and Wolfy is a magical mix of Mahou shoujo, good PG-13 yuri fun, and hell-raising chaos.  I don’t even know what all of that means, but I know that I adore the art on this book and that the creator is a total gem! Those two things alone have me keeping an eye on this Kickstarter. If you love manga, supporting special creators, and just awesome, please head on over and check out this Kickstarter project!

Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: The Floor Is Lava

This will be a small CrowdFUNding Spotlight for a small game from a small company. Before I go into this campaign, let me tell you about Orcs Unlimited. Before The Rat Hole opened, I backed their first RPG campaign for a trio of RPGs: Teddy Bear Island, Bad Day To Be A Kaiju, and We Hunt Bugs. (I also found myself with a copy of Space Pirates: The Musical, which I even had time to review.) There were some very small glitches with fulfillment on part of my pledge, but they went above and beyond and didn’t just fix it, but the made things better than right with a smile. 6 out of 5 stars and 3 thumbs up for customer service.

All right. On to the topic at hand. Even if you grew up as one of the few kids who didn’t jump around the furniture yelling “the floor is lava” you probably know it...

Kickstarter/Indiegogo of the Week: Ice Cream Dice

Dice! Ever since our first ancient ancestor scratched some symbols onto a bone or stone, we have had a love for dice. I think every household has a collection of dice somewhere, a bag, a box, or a jar. There is a gut level appeal to dice: the look, the feel in your hand, even the sound of them as they rattle and roll. No matter how many you may have, there is always a temptation to get more.

It took an Edmonton gamer, Marc Schubert, to show us what we’ve been missing, what we’ve been searching for. A sense of humour, a sense of whimsy, a sense of … flavour? Sometimes RPGs take themselves a little too seriously, and Marc got tired of all those dramatic, moody dice sets. So he decided to create something fun, dice sets in colours inspired by ice cream.

I wasn’t really sure how I f...

Kickstarter/Indiegogo of the Week: Spirit’s Destiny

 

I’ve been hearing for a while what a talented creator Dorphise is and after looking over this Kickstarter, I now have zero doubts in my head that the word on the street is the word to listen to. Now, I can’t tell you exactly what the book is about, but I can tell you that the art alone makes this one worth taking a look at. Don’t believe me? Head on over to Kickstarter and look for yourself!
