Two Awesome Kickstarter Projects
25 March 2013
Today’s a marketing post, but it’s well worth your time to check out these two awesome Kickstarter projects. Don’t feel too bad if you can’t throw money their way; you can always help by boosting the signal.
The first is Spark RPG by Jason Pitre (@genesisoflegend on Twitter, G+), the creative mind behind Genesis of Legend Publishing. I’ve been hearing about this one for a while, and I can’t wait to get a chance to play around with it. Anyone that’s been following me should know that the nature of belief is right in my wheelhouse. It should come as no surprise that I’m excited about an RPG whose main concern asks players to hold strong beliefs and then give them benefits for challenging those beliefs. This one’s already hit its funding goal, but I want to see what those stretch goals will be. Ten dollars gets you in on the ground floor with a digital copy of the book (and any stretch goals).
Apotheosis Drive X
The second is Apotheosis Dive X (#ADX). This one’s by Machine Age Productions, also known as Olivia Hill (@machineiv on Twitter) and Filamena Young (@filamena on Twitter). It leverages the Fate Core system (which I also backed). To be fair, the giant robot genre is something I don’t have a lot of familiarity with, but Olivia and Filamena have an amazing ability to create games the speak to the human condition. This game is no exception and promises to give us all kinds of interesting answers to the question of whether humanity should be saved. Stretch goals involve alternate settings that promise to have some interesting twists on the theme, too. This one is so close to funding (as of this blog post), and $1 gets you immediate access to the drafts (I love when KS projects do this, by the way).
Schedule permitting, I’d love to talk to Jason and Olivia and Filamena about these projects.
