Sure, it would seem as though we’re in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be entertained. In Wasteland Justice, by Madbeard Games, you take on the role of a clan leader who must organize your clan’s resources in order to field customized vehicles in an all-out race to the death. The game’s up now on Kickstarter.

The game has lots of customization, with 16 different drivers, 26 vehicle modification cards, and 20 weapons. That gives you thousands of ways you can outfit your team for the upcoming race. There’s four different teams, each with three vehicles. You also get wreck tokens, because that’s bound to happen at some point.

The campaign just launched this morning. It’s set to run for another 29 days.

    Note to Madbeard: Readable fonts are important.

    Davos – Thank you for the comment. We have argued this quite a few times within Madbeard Games, even my wife got involved…

    I personally started in your camp that the game logo should be easily readable, but after sleeping on the options and many straw polls later. We went with the font on the front of the box. I think it is easily recognisable albeit a little hard to read and I have come to love it, I obviously have a vested interest in it.

    Have a look and dwell on our original logo drafts them and let me know what you think.


      The worst part is the L, which looks like a lower case letter dropped into an all-caps title.

      I prefer the second one by a lot. I don’t think it loses the uniqueness and immediate recognition that you’re going for.

      I think the strange letter shapes (especially the S) combines very poorly with the rust effects applied over the top.

      This is a situation where I’d say “Pick one and ditch the other.” The rust adds a lot and tells me about your setting- but the very odd shapes for the S and A aren’t giving you any mileage, while they’re losing accessibility.

      Well, there’s my feedback.

      The only letter that seems out of place to me on the top logo is the S it looks like some weird lower case cursive s. It doesn’t match the A next to it in Style or Type font. I would almost do the Capital S with a diagonal strike that connects to the A and leave the lower portion of the S short so it doesn’t look like an 8.
      in fact you could use what you have just extend the top of the S a little or take a little rust off the top. So folks can see that bend up there!
