Heya IHC! One of the games I helped alpha for awhile back called Poker Smash is trying to get ported over to steam. Its the old “Matchup” formula, but the twist is it uses poker hands instead of just shapes and colors. If you liked Tetris attack, Panel de Pon, or Pokemon Puzzle League, its right up your alley. 8 bucks gets you a DRM free install AND a steam key.
Hey! Just wanted to let you folks know about our little, independent horror project: Carbon-Based Blues. Completely practical F/X, completely Bloody, and made by real horror fans! Check it out if you will… we’re in need of some last-minute love…
From his description:
For years, I’ve been asked to write sequels to my various science fiction and fantasy novels, but in a world where taking chances in media is increasingly rare, I was always happy to offer standalone novels. But with my tenth book coming out this year, I feel like I’ve established myself as a unique writer.
After the White House shot down the idea of the US building a Death Star, the idea went to Kickstarter, with a long-term goal of $850,000,000,000,000 for full funding and a short term goal of $31 million. And in case that Death Star gets built, there’s now a campaign to raise money to build an X-wing squadron to take it out.
So far, the X-wing project has $162,000 of its modest $11 million goal, so I think we know who’s gonna win this showdown… the motherfucking Alliance.
The resurection of the POP charger is the first of its kind, as Apple actually went back on its word and is allowing the kickstarted project to go through with its initial plan. This means they’re changing their own guidelines to allow Lightning connectors in charging devices next to other non-Lightning connectors.
In September, Jamie Siminoff and Edison Junior raised $139,170 on Kickstarter to support the creation of POP, a minimalist multi-device charging station. Today, in the largest Kickstarter refund yet, they’re giving that money back because Apple is being a total dick. They don’t want any non-Lightning connectors next to any Lightning connectors in a multi-charging device.
A while back, we posted about an unofficial sequel to MULE that was being funded on Kickstarter. At the time, it seemed like it would reach its goal, but it didn’t. Short by $28. Sure, someone could have gotten someone’s friend to kick in $28, but the lesson of the story is that if there’s a Kickstarter project you really want to see happen, don’t count on everyone else to help get to the funding goal.
Even though Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert of Double Fine are video game legends, having worked on such old school classics as Maniac Mansion, Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle and Grim Fandango, point and click adventure games aren’t quite the draw they used to be. But where Double Fine couldn’t find funding for a new adventure game from traditional sources for their new game, they went to Kickstarter. And in 24 hours, they had raised $1 million, breaking fundraising records on Kickstarter.
Hi IHC. Can you share this link to my Kickstarter project? It’s an interactive children’s book called the Adventures of Nya Papaya. Loosely based on my family. We’re almost finished with the first book, but could use a little help. I hope to have it out no later than January. Even if you guys don’t contribute, I’d really appreciate it if you could share it with those who may be interested.
Hey everyone, my favorite professor from uni is embarking on making a short film, The Turner Exhibit and I am passing along his profile on Kickstarter in case anyone is interested in contributing to a worthwhile endeavor. Anything you can throw his way would be greatly appreciated by both him and I.
