    LudiCreations is in their final couple days for their Pocket Imperium Kickstarter campaign. In this quick-playing (30-45min game), players are looking to build their fleets of starships and expand out into the galaxy, taking over resources from their opponents in the process. There is no luck element in the game (no dice or card flips), just strategy.
    The game is around 2.5x funded and has right around a week to go.

    Forge World has started taking orders for their new Deredeo Pattern Dreadnaught and the first couple weapon systems for it.
    I know I’ve lamented the look of some of Forge World’s dreadnaughts before, but this one I like. Granted, I think it’s because it reminds me of Mechwarrior (kinda looking like the Warhammer, actually… Not exactly like it, but it’s what I thought of), but still.
    Anyway, you can order these now and they’ll be sent out on the 30th.

    Games Workshop and Crooz Inc., have a new, free, video game app that you can download and play. This one’s The Horus Heresy: Drop Assault. Seems GW’s really letting the IP fly in terms of video games lately. I’ve been making a lot of announcements of this sort recently. Though, as this one’s free to play, it’s a bit different.

    In case you missed it, Kickstarter history was made yesterday with the launch of Exploding Kittens, the brain child of Matthew Inman, Elan Lee, and Shane Small. Within eight minutes, the game had reached its funding goal of $10,000. “That’s great,” you say. “Lots of games meet their funding quickly,” you add. Okay, how does 1000% funded in less than one hour sound? That’s $100,000 in ONE hour. Still not impressed? First, let’s be friends. I’ll let you buy me dinner. Second, how about $1 MILLION raised in under seven hours. Again, that is $1,000,000 in less than the average work day. If you’re not impressed now, then I’m not sure what will get you. Did you know we landed on the moon? Yes? Okay, well, I tried. So about this history making… Read more

    Fat Dragon Games launched their Kickstarter campaign for their latest set of terrain. This time it’s Wilderness Adventures (and for some reason, that reminds me of the campground in National Lampoon’s Vacation… not sure why. They have nothing to do with one-another, but there we are, then). More than just trees and rocks, there are cliffs, temples, statues, and more. The campaign is already more than 13x funded with still 33 days to go. So there’s plenty of stretch goals and extras to check out.
