Made me check the Kickstarter and I got the very last Early Bird Pledge at $15. I'll just give away my console code, probably.Got the '48 Hour Left' alert for Prodeus and noticed they were giving you a PC and a console code for the one price so fuck it - I'm in.
This one is going to be close but they should make it.

I've just now had an answer from them:I'll gladly back it if they say it'll be released on Steam. Keep us posted please.
As of now, things are leaning in the direction of Steam and our own website for a DRM-free download.
Descend will most likely be on various services, I understand that many of our fans have favorite platforms and we don't want marketing to get in the way of that.
At what tier?
£10 is enough for me.At what tier?
I'm a bit torn. The game looks genuinely good, in terms of gameplay variation (shmup + turn-based, grid combat), but the sex/nudity elements seem to stick out badly.
I'll consider going for that £10 tier, before the campaign ends.
I consider hypersexualization a form of exploitation, which is also a form of violence that manifests in different ways.That's a bit of a stretch. I don't see fear and violence towards women being normalized in this, as misogynistic as it may be.
Play as Johann, a disenchanted young man feeling the weight and responsibilities of his life slowly breaking his spirit. His work is crushing, his dreams are fading and he realizes that adulthood isn't really what he was hoping for. But when he gains the ability to enter the Kid World and fight his problems as his childhood self, he might just find a way to make life worth exploring again!
I can't disagree with you about this. It definitely is that, among various other problematic things. It's not really a positive, but at least Subverse isn't trying to in any way hide the hypersexualization or couch it in gaming jargon to make it better/seem like it's something it's notI consider hypersexualization a form of exploitation, which is also a form of violence that manifests in different ways.
Agony might be analogous to perpetrators of domestic violence and sexual assault. I see games like these radicalizing more incels and the like.
Thanks for the heads-up.
Lovecraft's Fear of the Other as filtered through Geiger's fascination with and/or fear of genitals/flesh melding with machine. I might have an easier time backing this - will keep an eye on itThanks for the heads-up.
I just arrived home, and I ended up backing it (peer pressure! ).
Speaking of NSFW games, when I backed it, this game came up:
It's a sequel to the game Lust for Darkness.
Backers of that campaign are supposed to get a Steam key for a demo with an exclusive short side story, that apparently won't be a part of the final game.
Sounds like they are welcoming an exclusivity deal to survive.
It sounds more like 'if' rather than 'when', and depending on how well this fig campaign does, it might lean more to one side than the other. And they're at least up front about it at the get go and not going to Julian Gallop the whole thing later.Sounds like they are welcoming an exclusivity deal to survive.
When you are in game industry you you have to take risks. Maybe take a loan to survive, not take exclusivity deals.
Looks like they licensed their tech to the Polymega dudes for a lightgun available for the system. The concept is hot.Maybe this thread is more appropriate
Since I was talking lightgun games on the VR thread I found this project which looks promising for non-VR lightguns.
We'll see how it is in practice but it's a pretty promising project (at least for real lightgun games and also anything that uses mouse lightgun emulation from the looks of it, and he's got support for raspberry pi as well). It was recently fully funded, we'll see if anything comes out of it. The first support tier that actually gets a gun was pretty expensive at $80 though so I imagine if it ever gets to retail it will be even more so. But, perhaps there will be less fancy versions (like without the pump action reload) that cost less. But even the AimTrak guns are super expensive or I'd have one myself so, yeah, it seems competitive for this niche.
