Sometimes you just want to give new developers a push, sometimes you get a tip, and sometimes a game is just such a wacky and wonderful idea, you really want to see where it goes. Welcome to our first crowdsourcing blog!
This game, in development by two brothers in Dundee, UK, is well into development, with the money being raised for development tools. Looks cute, although I hope they add more detail as the campaign continues. Still, they aren’t asking for much and it sounds like a neat idea–not just one story, but an app that works like a kind of library of games. I hope this one succeeds, because I’d like to see it in implementation.
Yep, there are tons of roguelikes out there for mobile devices, but I have it on good authority that this is the one to back. This developer is addicted to making roguelike games, and his idea for this one is pretty well developed. In fact, you can play a beta version online right now. I enjoyed it, even though I couldn’t stop dying. Looks like it will be just the right blend of easy to play and tough to master that we look for in mobile games.
Deep City 2030
The plug starts like this: “By the year 2030, 6 out of 10 humans will live in cities…Deep City 2030 asks the question, ‘What if cities could save the world?’.” I have to admit, as a farm girl born and raised in the country, I’m intrigued with how that question could possibly be answered by a game! But I’m willing to find out if you are. It’s a fascinating idea… and then there’s Lazer Cat. Who Must. Be. Funded.
