Getting Started

Double Fine’s adventure game Kickstarter (ended) and inXile’s Wasteland 2 Kickstarter (ongoing) have both been huge successes, raising nearly five million dollars between the two of them (congratulations!). On the heels of these high-profile campaigns, I’d like to mention a few smaller ‘starters that sound interesting to me.

CraftStudio – Described as a “game to make games”, CraftStudio is a collaborative design environment that will let you build your own games and movies using a number of intuitive, built-in editors. You can then freely distribute or sell your creations, through CraftStudio’s online store or however else you like.

Hardcore Tactical Shooter – Christian Allen, a veteran of tactical shooters like Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter and Halo: Reach, wants to develop a shooter that focuses on realistic squad-based tactics and non-linear, objective-based missions.

Americana Dawn – Americana Dawn is a freeware JRPG that’s set during the early history of the United States. The promise of strategic battle systems and large-scale warfare are enticing, but vague. For now, I’m mostly interested in the game’s story and commitment to historical accuracy. The graphics and music seem pretty nice, too!
