My god… so many games that I’ve put money into or want to put money into.
Elite: Dangerous sounds delicious. I played Elite briefly when I was a but a small child with many dreams and little understanding. I didn’t get into heavily as I just had no idea what was happening. 20 odd years later and I’m deeply excited to see this happen. I’ve always remembered it as a complex game about space and trading. Was I right? No clue, I’ve never gone back. But I always look forward to a rebuild that looks great.
Legend of Dungeon I put money into, i’m a sucker for quality rpg dungeonish games. I played the demo briefly and I can see a quality here that will be fantastic once it’s farther along. If you remember Gauntlet, Castle Crashers, TMNT: Turtles in Time or some of the other early 90’s games you’ll understand the controls easily enough and perhaps even enjoy the approach.
Wastelands 2 is on my radar. I gave them what it took to get a copy when it launches and I expect to be talking more come next summer. I’m not normally into post-apocalypse games. The time after The End is often boring, brown and full of zombie-mutants as though someone forgot to have ideas when building their game. Wasteland hit many radars forever ago and I decided they had a quality idea after watching the introduction video on Kickstarter.
Numenera is probably not on your radar as much as mine. My first love was Tabletop RPG’s and it’ll always be a love I come back to. Monte Cook has been in the industry for nigh unto forever and his other projects I’ve enjoyed. Numenera stands as an RPG approach to a world that’s seen many civilizations that came and went. The ninth is the current one you play in, a realm of mystery as the previous civilizations projects or experiments still roam the world. Also scheduled for sometime next summer.
Planet Annihilation is the last for now. Real-Time Strategy games were frequent among my rommmates as the easy option for 3/4 person multiplayer. We played them a lot and we played most of them. PA looks to take the idea up a notch. Why settle for smiting a bulding when you can drop a moon and obliterate a planet? I was so tickled with excitement I barely remember giving them money. But I’m getting emails about it so clearly I gave them something.
