I'm not that interested in the LSL games, but Kickstarter in general breaks my heart (in a good way). There was a really interesting article in Gameinformer about it. Not only are the famous developers getting their pet projects funded by fans with no meddling from publishers, but ever since Tim Schafer's thing, funding for ALL projects on kickstarter got a huge boost, not just the ones by famous people. He really helped make this website visible.
But there was also another article somewhere were a kickstarter member broke down where all the money went, and they actually lost a lot to prizes. So w[censored]ver sets one up kinda needs to overshoot their actual goal by a substantial amount to be able to both fund their project and their prizes (if any).
Very nice hopefully this will prove that the adventure game genre is not dead. I really miss a good adventure game, the whole key is that they are all about the storyline and so many developers don't understand that.
$3,300,000 says they're not dead, my friend 🙂 But yeah, the last good Adventure game I played was Dreamfall: the Longest Journey on the old Xbox out of all places. I just bought Gemini Rue and that's REALLY old school, a great scifi adventure game with pixely graphics and everything. Haven't had time to really get into it but it looks awesome. I'd donate my life savings (all negative $500 of it) if someone did a Kickstarter for a new Blade Runner adventure game.
hahaha wow i have never heard of this game. where is it on the timeline of video games?
Forgive Ztimpson he is not exactly a video game buff.
@Ztimpson Leisure suit Larry was first released under sierra games in 87.
if you were asking about sackyhacks post, dreamfall, gemini rue and blade runner were published in the years 1999, 2007 and 1985 respectively. Gemini rue is a collectors edition of the PC game boryokudan Rue.
Look at you! knowing your video game history, inpressive;)
Thanks for looking out for me:D
