If its fallout-3-like then
A proposed revival of the classic pen-and-paper game and console RPG series.
Merging high fantasy and cyberpunk, Shadowrun spawned a number of spinoff products in the '90s, including a pair of fondly remembered RPGs for the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. Its creator FASA Studio folded in 2007, following the unfortunate release of a competitive first-person shooter set in the Shadowrun universe.
Having reacquired the Shadowrun license, original game designer Jordan Weisman pitches a tactical, turn-based 2D Shadowrun game for tablets and PC platforms funded through Kickstarter. Harebrained Schemes has raised $365,000 toward its goal of $400,000 as of this writing, with 24 days left in the campaign.
You can grab a DRM free digital copy for $15.
Pinkerton Road is the new game studio started by game veterans Jane Jensen and Robert Holmes. Our focus is 3rd person adventure games for PC and tablet with rich stories, gorgeous art and seamlessly fun play. The studio will use a new model, "Community Supported Gaming" (CSG) to fund and develop their games.
Jane is known for games with complex, dark plotlines. She created the Gabriel Knight adventure game series at Sierra On-Line and the recent Gray Matter. And in the past eight years, she designed and directed leading casual games including Women’s Murder Club, Dying for Daylight and Deadtime Stories at Oberon Media/I-Play Studio. Now she's returning to her roots and founding an adventure game studio. Robert, Jane's husband, produced GK1 and has written music for many of Jane’s games. His endlessly hip band, The Scarlet Furies, did the toe-tapping themes in Gray Matter and Dying for Daylight.
Again you have to part with $16 for one adventure in the season.
Several Sierra Online veterans have to reboot the Leisure Suit Larry franchise with a remake of the first game. The kickstarter has only been up for a day or two and they’ve already raised over $178k of their $500k.
Again the game will cost you $15, and you may choose from Steam or DRM Free version.
WHAT IS NEKRO?
Nekro is an overhead, randomly generated action game about summoning evil forces of darkness to do your bidding!
Hailing from the era of great classics such as Myth: The Fallen Lords, Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Dungeon Keeper and more, we are creating a game rooted deep in PC gaming's history, but with all the flourishes you've come to expect from a modern experience.
Combining full HD graphics, a unique premise, solid gameplay, and tight controls Nekro can be one hell of a game - but not without you...
When its Kickstarter campaign ended, the studio counted $36,967 in pledges, almost double the $20,000 it initially hoped to bring in to fund the Star Trek-esque sim RPG. However, around $2,000 of those pledges failed to transfer.
Kickstarter and Amazon Payments took their $3,000 cut from that amount, and then the company spent $10,000 on producing the incentives War Balloon promised backers, such as posters and shirts.
With $22,000 remaining, it spent $6,000 on Star Command's music, $4,000 on setting up the company (attorneys, start-up fees, etc.), $2,000 on poster art, $1,000 on iPads, and $3,000 on its PAX East presence two weeks ago.
War Balloon was left with $6,000 after all that, which counted as income, so it gave up a third of that to taxes. The studio has actually taken on more than $50,000 in debt while working on Star Command, which releases to iOS and Android devices this summer.
Offering insight to other developers interested in Kickstarter, War Balloon also warned that costs for rewards can get out of hand. "We just didn't fully appreciate the cost of printing 200 posters, shirts, and more than anything shipping," the team admitted.
