You’ll have to forgive me for delivering this week’s crowdfunding selection a day later than usual – hopefully this week’s varied selection will be more than enough to excuse tripping up! Featured this week: first person puzzler Reset, GaymerX headed adventure game Read Only Memories, arena-jousting marine-life battler Starwhal and Honored, a service that aims to give you real badges for your achievements. Meanwhile, we prematurely call time on RetroWorld, an intriguing concept we can only hope will retool and return.
A privileged elite thrust from a dying world, an exiled criminal making his escape with a bounty of fuel and fireworks, or over-reliance on GPS leading to a Sunday drive gone terribly awry. Form your own story – you’re in space and there’s gonna be ‘splosions before the end. This is Reset by chatroom regular and talented person RoBurky, and these are the words he has to say about his creation:
“‘Rest to Reset‘ by Trash80 (creator of the soundtrack to Darwinia) is one of my favourite pieces of music. This game is intended to provide an experience that supports that music, with everything that happens in the game happening in response to something in the music. Like an interactive music video. Or like Audiosurf, but with the experience sculpted just for this one track.”
