Can I kick it???? Yes you can!!! Since its launch in 2009, Kickstarter has made the dreams of thousands of people come true. There are countless projects out on Kickstarter, so I wanted to bring you some of my favorite projects every week in our new feature Kick It with Kickstarter. This week, I wanted to highlight 3 projects in the video game industry.
How many of you remember the classic 1994 PC game? Nightdive Studios is working to completely remaster the classic game. Since the launch yesterday, it is a little over halfway to its goal of $900,000. There are some pretty awesome awards, and they have a mini demo of the game on their Kickstarter page!!

Dreamcade Replay – Universal Vintage Gaming Console
This is an interesting project from a Sacramento, CA based company. We love our retro games, and they look to make it easier for you to have access to hundreds of downloadable classics that can easily be played on your Smart TV or on the portable arcade cabinet. You can also download games as they become available. Kickstarter pledges get a discount on the 3 versions of the Dreamcade. There are 22 days left in the Kickstarter, so check it out here – https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1329525418/dreamcade-replay-universal-vintage-gaming-console?ref=category_recommended
Friday the 13th
The Kickstarter for Friday the 13th has been around for quite some time and has initially made their goal of $700,000. Currently, they are planning an October 2016 release! You can still donate to the cause and money will go towards stretch goals, which will add more features to the initial game like new skins and more brutal kills. If it is as fun as Dead by Daylight, then this will be a very successful Kickstarter. You can see more info on the project and check out their E3 footage here – https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/613356213/friday-the-13th-the-game/description
