Here are the most interesting projects of Kickstarter gaming for the week of June 19th through June 25th. Not many projects to go over this week, but the ones that piqued my interest are quite good. Let’s take a look.
This JRPG draws inspiration from tactics games and Paper Mario set in an homage to Harry Potter’s Hogwarts. In this game, you must make friends and explore the school grounds as you uncover the mystery of what happened to your sister the year before. The music composers are the same who compose for Stephen Universe, and lend a gorgeous soundtrack to this cute and stylish game. For just $9 USD, this game seems well worth the price. It’s just unfortunate you’ll have to wait a year or two to get your hands on it.
Overseers is an interesting card game about matching cards and deception. You play as one of the several titular overseers who have interesting powers to collect winning cards. As you play, you reveal a portion of your cards to your opponents, and whoever appears to have the best hand must bluff correctly to stay ahead. The game has beautiful art, and simple to learn but difficult to master rules that appear to add a great amount of replayability. For about $25 USD, you can get the whole game (with shipping) which appears to be well worth the asking price.
This video game is a hack and slash dungeon crawler featuring a cast of solely wizards. You fight your way through hordes of enemies using flashy magic spells ranging from fireballs to ice storms. It hearkens back to gauntlet legend esque gameplay, but this time everyone is the wizard, the attacks are incredibly varied and the combat is lightning fast. At $10 USD for a copy, this game is a steal. With any luck, the project will make its funding goal of $50,000 USD in the next 24 days.
If any of these projects pique your interest, I highly recommend checking them out for yourself. Even backing a project at a $1 level helps to encourage the creators to continue their dream, and gets them that much closer to their goal.
