Kicking It with Kickstarter – Week Ending 7/29

by on July 27, 2016

Can I Kick It??????  Yes you can!!!!

Welcome to another edition of Kicking It with Kickstarter!  Every week, we take a look at fun and interesting gaming projects on Kickstarter.  With so many Kickstarter success stories out there, we want to draw attention to projects that we want to see on retail shelves.  Without further ado, here are the projects for this week –

The Adventure Pals – A Story of Love, Giraffes, and Hot Dogs


Adventure Pals is a beautiful adventure game from Massive Monster.  It’s an adventure platformer that pits you against the evil Mr. B, who wants to turn your father into a hot dog (because why not).  You, along with a Giraffe named Sparkles and your pet rock, you explore the world and work to stop Mr. B.  The game features co-op play and 10+ hours of gameplay in what looks to be a beautiful, hilarious world.  The team is looking to release the game early 2017 on PC, Mac, and Linux.   This project has 30 days left, so visit their Kickstarter page HERE if you want to support it!

911 Operator


We have seen many police and military simulations.  But have we seen a simulator that puts you in the role of a 911 operator?  The developer PlayWay has started a Kickstarter to create a game that puts you in that stressful role.  With roughly 50 different scenarios, you will be asked to quickly help callers through roughly 50 different scenarios.  Some will require you to get the proper help and give first aid instructions.  Others might require you to politely let a caller know that they should not be calling 911 for their specific situation.  One cool aspect of this game is the ability to simulate any major city in the world.  You can pretend to help people close to home or pick a city anywhere in the world.  Right now, they are working on stretch goals that will include multiplayer and a version of the game for tablets.  Check out their page HERE for more information!

Mystery of Woolley Mountain – A New Point and Click Adventure


I love a good Point and Click Adventure, and this one looks really fun.  The art design is unique and looks great.  In Mystery of Woolley Mountain, 5 time traveling scientists are on a mission to rid Woolley Mountain of an evil witch.  You have your classic point and click gameplay – you will be able to use, talk, pick up, and examine as you interact with almost anything in the world.  You will also have many puzzles to solve as you work your way through 3 acts.  There are 22 days left in the project.  Click HERE to see more!

As always, let us know in the comments or on social media if there are any projects that you want us to check out!  See you all next week!!!!
