Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: Dreeple & Dreeple War Relaunch

Silver Lake Games is quickly becoming one of my favourite small publishers to watch. Their Duckaiju™ campaign was one of the most glorious bits of hype-building that I’ve seen in ages. When their Dreeple campaign first launched I wasn’t able to fit a full CrowdFUNding Spotlight on it, but as luck would have it I have a chance to make up for it.

The original campaign ended up being canceled, and after dealing with some manufacturing details, it’s now back with (very) slightly lower costing pledge levels, and a funding goal a quarter of the original campaign.

What are “Dreeples,” you ask? Dreeples are coloured acrilic Dragon Meeples. A Dreeple is approximately 2.5 inches wide, 2 inches tall and 3/8 inch thick...

Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: Ten2Midnight #1

Kickstarter - Ten2Midnight

It all began in the Eleventh Hour when the sun blotted out and the Earth was plunged into darkness. For many, this was the beginning of the End of Times. When nightmarish creatures broke through that darkness and began scouring the Earth of humanity, they were labelled demons. Survivors fled, they scraped, they stole, they hid as best as they could to avoid the things that hunted them in the night, but for some-

Some simply couldn’t abide the silent surrender of only surviving. They couldn’t roll over while the bodies of their dead rose up to hunt them, or winged creatures descended from on high to pluck their children from their arms. All of the blood and soot stirred their inner fire to start fighting back.

In this issue, an evangelist strives to keep his flock in their faith a...

Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: Skies Over Superior

Skies over Superior - Kickstarter

Skies Over Superior is a comic book about Merilee Fite, a girl facing ghosts and monsters on the icy shores of Lake Superior.

But it’s also about the strength of family and crushing effects of depression and mental illness.

But it’s also about power of music, and the power of stories, to bring people together.

But, it’s also about the power of monsters to crush and tear people apart.

~~~

As a Michigan girl, how could I not tell you about this project? There’s just something about it that draws me to it…maybe it’s the music or the story…or both. Please, check it out and if it draws you too, pledge so that this dream can become a reality.
