Can I Kick It? YES YOU CAN!!!
Welcome to another addition of Kicking It with Kickstarter! Thank you so much for tuning in every week to see these great projects. We want to provide a showcase for all those talented developers who are looking to get their dream projects off the ground. Remember, make sure to click on the links to check out their projects and support them if possible. As usual, we have 3 interesting projects to show you that are live on Kickstarter. Here are our featured projects –
One of the best parts of a table top game is the ability to create any type of character you want. Typically, I choose the warrior type with lots of weapons and stats that benefit a tank type character. But what if you had to go through a campaign as a pacifist? Lotus Dimensions is a D&D type game that requires you to solve problems in non-violent ways. Characters such as the hacker or mystic will have stats and abilities based on the concept of Karma and the eight-fold path of Buddha. The starter set includes pre-made quests with a “guru guide” to help lead the party through the quests. I have never seen an entire party be passive during a table top session, so it would be really interesting to see how the party solves problems in a non-violent way. The project has 28 days to go.

When It Hits The Fan
I love my 32 bit action games, and Heart Felt Games is bringing us a top down shooter with a 32 bit look. You play as a brother and sister duo who are stuck in probably the worst scenario possible. You are stuck in the middle of a zombie outbreak, alien invasion, robotic uprising, and invasion of demons. How in the world can you survive against this many apocalyptic nightmares? With tons of weapons! The game is a twin stick shooter that feels like Contra. For more information, and a link to a demo, click HERE. The project has 7 days left, so hurry and support it if you are interested!!
Ethos: It Begins Again
We had the chance to check out Ethos: It Begins Again at Salt Lake Gaming Con. The idea is really ambitious – create an Action RPG/MMO with city building aspects, all in a sandbox environment. It sounds complicated, but think of the options. You would be able to create a character to take on Dark Soul-like bosses and save various kingdoms. You would be able to build cities and run shops. You could become a bounty hunter, a farmer, or a miner. You can expand your empire buy defeating other players. It sounds like a ton of possibilities. If this type of game is appealing to you, then click HERE to see developer interviews and support the project! There are 19 days left on Kickstarter.
That is it for us this week! Please feel free to comment on these projects and make sure to let us know about any interesting projects to feature for next week! See you all next time!!
