Do we have a thread for that?

Because fuck it. Syndicate people SYNDICATE... well... satellite reign...

So anyway Syndicate missed out on the kickstarter renaissance so far. A rather glaring oversight really.

It's in franchise release was a shitty FPS no one asked for or liked, apparently angering enough people to spawn Satellite Reign and some Paradox backed title as proper spiritual successors. But Satellite Reign is by like, the actual Syndicate dude. And if it hits its stretch goal gets the dude who did the original Syndicate music, which was rather awesome.

And if you HAVE NOT played the original Syndicate before... just look at the GOG entry... first thing they say is true, "one of the very few games to make it onto almost every best games of all time list". Hell buy the thing while you are there and play it if you haven't before, it's fucking Syndicate.

Mostly people find a relevant thread. We should actually just have an "Awesome Kickstarters I Want to Shill" thread on MPSIMS.

FBMF?

I feel shilling for kickstarter projects doesnt belong in MPSIMS. Mostly the ones we would be interested in on the gaming den will be video games. So its probably best in here. The odd RPG starter can just have a one off thread in humble opinion and if theres a very rare kickstarter for some other random junk it can one off into MPSIMS, but video games seems to be where its at.

I only played Syndicate Wars and that was great, even if I didn't get that far. I may need to see about buying Syndicate off GOG.

But the first question is for those on the board who worked with Russell Zimmerman on Shadowrun- is he a competent designer who can get stuff done in a timely manner when allowed to do whatever he wants or is he likely to fuck it all up?

Russell Zimmerman is one of the scab authors that Catalyst brought in after they had burned their bridges with their competent staff. He may well have improved since I stopped paying attention, but he wrote The Untethered Life in Attitude. And my fucking goodness was it fucking terrible.

Here is a writing sample:

They offered it as a free preview to show you what quality level Attitude was, so we're not breaking any copyright rules here by posting that tripe.

But keep in mind, they aren't bringing him in as a developer. Russel Zimmerman is writing the Satellite Reign novella. It's just a twenty thousand word tirade by an author whose writing credits are embarrassing crap.

He's an "award winning author" in the same way that a child who gets a gold star on her macaroni sculpture is an "award winning artist". Still, not a terribly good sign.

I'm a big fan of the Syndicate & Syndicate Wars, but I won't be backing this. Their video raised two big red flags:

Sandbox/Emergent behaviour- Some games get this right, a lot of Paradox games for instance. But it is very easy to get this wrong, and it makes missions boring and repetitive.

Take down the corporations- In the originals you where the bad guys and you where fighting other bad guys. There was something very liberating about that. Your minions where totally expendable, if expensive. This sounds like you will have to nurture your troops to stay competitive. So no kamikaze explosions Sad

Maybe they end up making something really cool, if they do they'll get my money, but not before.

The Eternal Darkness crew has a kickstarter for a 'spiritual sequel' called Shadow of the Eternals.

I've pledged $25 bucks. Anyone else in?

The hell? There are two kickstarter threads? I thought I was having deja vu for a moment.

Anyway. I posted over in the other thread about it, but theres a fair amount of controversy surrounding Shadow of the Eternals. This is their second attempt to kickstart, after the first one wasn't going to reach its goal.

Zeboyd is working on a new RPG that looks kinda interesting. They have a kickstarter campaign planned to start September.

The site also regularly talks about the kickstarters for other videogame projects.

This looks pretty neat, I haven't played a good 2d-metroid-like game in a long time.

Mutant Football League is having a kickstarter to make a modern version of the game.

For those who don't know, Mutant Football League was a game wherein mutants played (American) football. And you could bribe the referee to call penalties on the other team, beat the referee up to intimidate him so he wouldn't penalize you, and I want to say the out-of-bounds zone was a minefield, so you could run out of bounds and keep going, just you were going to step on a mine sooner or later.

It was a glorious example of when video games didn't take themselves seriously and didn't strive for Realism in All Things, and I'm willing to venture thirty bucks on getting a remake.

I remember the Mutant League Football cartoon. Sadly I don't any cash to give to this kickstarter.

Some people are kickstarting a spiritual successor to City Of Heroes. With their target of 320,000$, they wil- ahahahaha.

So yeah, after taxes and fees they'll be trying to make an urban MMO on 180,000$. If anyone has some money they won't mind never seeing back, these guys need all the help they can get.

sequel to River City Ransom.

It is a pity I missed this, though the original game did get boring to play by the time ye had to fight the twins again, and power level.

I'm also surprised that Zeboyd Kickstarter hasn't made even more than it has currently. Even if it's met its goal, I'd expect several stretch goals to have been made.
