Neal Stephenson wants to make a sword-fighting video game

Postby Magnanimous » Sun Jun 10, 2012 2:48 am UTC

It's on Kickstarter if anyone's interested.

This looks extremely awesome so far... Hopefully it'll live up to expectations. Buying the peripheral will be annoying, but that didn't seem to hold back Guitar Hero.

I can't see the video at work but I hope there's no expected plotline in that game because the ending will basically be ME3 ending.

Also I expect random sex scenes to spice things up.

Nice, I have hoped for a good sword fighting game since this kind of controllers came out. I don't think they will have problems with reaching the goal seeing how fast they reached 200k.

It has great potential. For fans of the genre I'd also recommend the interactive fiction novel "Zombie Exodus", where you try to survive a zombie apocalypse. Gripping stuff! I'd post a link but I'm not allowed to yet . . . It should google easily enough though, and you can find the app for it for iOS and Android devices. It should be on Kindle sooner or later, too, but they've not published a release date for that yet.

General Kickstarter Games Thread

Postby bigglesworth » Mon Jun 18, 2012 2:31 pm UTC

I thought I would start up a thread to talk about various game projects on Kickstarter, the theory and practice of making games in this way, and to discuss the progress of the projects. I don't mean to replace the threads on the individual games, but I didn't feel like making a thread all about a tiny game project.

And which project? Cold Fusion - Secular Equilibrium. A SNES-style RPG set in a post-apocalyptic Earth. Currently at $4000 of $15000. What do the good people of XKCD Gaming think of this? I think I'd enjoy the game if it delivered, but I'm not sure I trust the creator to do so.

Have there been any games released -- or betas, even -- that have been funded by Kickstarter?

I think Kickstarter has only been around for a bit (or maybe has only been popular for a bit) so this might not actually be realistic, but it'd still be nice to actually have something to play after hearing about dozens of Kickstarters for amazing-sounding games.

FTL (Faster than Light) is in the process of starting up their closed beta (backers only), and has had a playable demo since around the time the Kickstarter opened. A lot of the Kickstarters I've seen/backed have had little more than a tech demo at the time - but as you say, it's a young service.

A couple of additional games in progress for this:

Dead State - Looks like a game with sort of x-com/rpg mechanics in the theme of zombie survival. Manage a defensible shelter, and the people in it, send groups out to scavenge for supplies, etc.

Clang - Neil Stephenson is making a swordfighting game, focusing on controls and depth. Worth looking at for the kickstarter videos if nothing else. :)

Faster Than Light just released their beta this week after having been successfully funded in April. Btw, the game is very awesome, starts easy, and really ramps up the difficulty towards the end. I think it's more intended to be one of those games where it's more about the journey, not necessarily the horrible, horrifying end of your entire crew dying as fire spreads through the ship, or is blown to bits by pirate missiles, or bombarded by asteroids, lost to a solar flare, boarded by slavers... and those are just the way MY games have ended. :)

This is a good point. I think that the buzz around kickstarter that's currently going on is eventually going to cool off - but when the first games start coming out that'll change.

However, this (cooling off) definitely won't happen for the games/other projects launched by big-name people. This platform is a great way for social capital to be leveraged into actual capital.

A Spirit of the Century board game recently started.

For those of you unfamiliar with Spirit of The Century, it is a RPG using the Fate system about the Century Club, a group of people who are born at the turn of the century and are destined for great things in the century to come. It is filled with pulp style adventure.

Just an update to mention that Dead State is now fully funded and has 12 days left to hit some stretch goals! Dead State, Xenonauts, Wasteland 2, X-COM: Enemy Unknown -- it's a good time to be a fan of squad based, turn based combat. My inner gamer is doing a happy dance. :D

Well, that Cold Fusion kickstarter I mentioned at the start just failed. I donated, but I guess that enough other people also doubted the ability of the creator to do the project (I think that there would be a market out there).

Looked at that now, and not even remotely surprised it failed. Incredibly niche, with unremarkable graphics and gameplay features, and no notable design, programming or art talent mentioned. I really don't think that many people are looking for amateur old-school RPGs to be made, and I definitely doubt that it would have finished even if they did get the funding.


Very excited for FTL though. I didn't back (it had already far exceeded it's goal at the time, so I didn't see the point), but I played the alpha and loved it. It was already pretty polished then (as far as alphas go), so I can't wait to see how the final game turns out.

To be honest the more I've seen of the Clang game mechanics, the more amount of sense it has made. Whether this translates into a good game I don't know, but it doesn't look like it'll fail to produce a workable game.

Some of you may be familiar with a rather ancient DOS game known at Jetpack, which was released as freeware quite some time ago. The original author has been toying with a sequel for twenty years, and has decided to launch a kickstarter.

Ouya: Android-based open gaming console kickstarter.

Postby Soralin » Wed Jul 11, 2012 1:48 am UTC

There's an android-based open gaming console being developed, Ouya, that's picked up quite a bit of attention. Open gaming/app development, usb ports/bluetooth for additional hardware, rootable, etc:

It's been up for about 13 hours or so now, and has picked up over $1.7 million. :)

Is there any connection to Jetpack Santa? That was an awesome game.

On a larger scale, there's a $100 Android console that looks very interesting - they're promising every game will have a way to try before you buy, all the general developer kits are already spoken for, and even if the game side is a flop it looks like a cheap, fairly powerful, and highly hackable box.

I fondly remember playing the original as one of the first PC games I owned, would love to find a copy that works on modern computers.

His sequel though, doesn't really look like anything special, I dont' really understand it I guess. The graphics are miles worse than the original IMO, and I didn't see anything new or interesting that couldn't have been done in the original either. I could be wrong though, maybe it will be brilliant, hard to tell at this point.

Defense Grid 2 (Kickstarter)

Postby Ryom » Thu Jul 12, 2012 6:48 am UTC

Hornet at HardOCP wrote:The developers of Hidden Path Entertainment have started a rather interesting Kickstarter project, with the ultimate goal of making Defense Grid 2, in addition to many new contents for the original Defense Grid too (new content, new engine remake, map editor, multiplayer). Its like getting 2 new games. :D

Kickstarter link:
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hiddenpath/defense-grid-2

The base goal is to raise 250k. But the ultimate goal is to reach 1 million to make Defense Grid 2 in a much shorter time frame (more on this later).

Here's how it works:
$250k - Defense Grid: Containment DLC
$500k - New engine for DG2, and DG1 remake, all with multiplayer co-op feature.
$750k - Level editors, additional platofmrs (Linux, Mac)
$1 mil - A full Defense Grid 2 with all mentioned features.

You're getting all of that for only $15. Of course more will always help the project reach Defense Grid 2 sooner, and with all mentioned features.
Exactly what do I get for a $15 pledge? Do I get DG2 if we cross $1m raised?

Yes, for a $15 pledge, you get any digital game content we are able to make with the money raised. If we raise $250k, then you'll get DG:Containment. If we raise $500k, you'll get DG:Containment and the remastered DG1 with multiplayer. If we raise $750k, you'll get DG:Containment, the remastered DG1 with multiplayer, the level editor, and Mac & Linux versions. If we raise $1m you'll get DG:Containment & DG2 for sure, and the community can vote on whether they want us to have us make a remastered DG1 with multiplayer, level editor and Mac & Linux, or just put those resources towards a larger DG2 which will also have multiplayer, level editor and Mac and Linux.


What happens if they don't reach the extended 1 million dollars goal:
Exactly what do I get for a $15 pledge? Do I get DG2 if we cross $1m raised?

Yes, for a $15 pledge, you get any digital game content we are able to make with the money raised. If we raise $250k, then you'll get DG:Containment. If we raise $500k, you'll get DG:Containment and the remastered DG1 with multiplayer.

Ultimately, I hope we'll reach all the goal, and we can have Defense Grid 2 next year, along with all the features such as level editor and multiplayer. That would be amazing.:)

i've thrown in $10 for that, although if I have the money closer to the funding date I might up it to get a console $99 + $20 int. shipping only works out as about £77, and I've spent more than that on single movies or single games in the past.... :|

Here's a board game Kickstarter I've had my eyes on. It's from the guys that did the Spirit of the Century role-playing game. So a pulpy-adventure styled board game. I've got a couple of Evil Hat's rpg's and the quality & style has never disappointed. I expect the same from the board game.

Star Command - Well I just funded this game. Essentially Faster-Then-Light with a bit more to look at. Its at 59,671 out of 100,000 and it has 20 days so I think it will just squeak past the finish line. I personally can't wait for this game.

Castle Story looks interesting:

Sort of a strategy game where you can build up buildings brick by brick, and defend them, gather resources, mine out areas, etc. on a set of floating islands. Watch the video on the page to get the idea of it. :)

That game looks amazing. And near-ish to completion. I got a good laugh out of how they got a little over four times what they asked for, too.

It looks like what I'd imagine Dwarf Fortress would play like, having never really played DF. It's castles instead of caverns, but still.

I really hope not. I mean, I'm partially expecting it to just because it's so rare for a new player in the console market to make it, but if it succeeds it could be hugely disruptive. And when was the last time we had something truly disruptive in the console industry? When we got online multiplayer?
