What if my biggest fear is donating to a kickstarter that never comes to fruition?

The description reminds me of Yume Nikki, but it looks like it has modern graphics instead of the 8 bit style of Yume Nikki.

Then I think you're crazy because you imagine you've never wasted a few bucks in your life.

Looks great for a game written in... 1997.

They expect me to wear sensors around my body? Sorry, how about NO.

I've got plenty of mindfark games to play anyway. The Stanley Parable, Anti-Chamber... the seem more clever than your "biofeedback" gimmick game with cheesy graphics.

The 1992 graphics are horrifying!

I find the reaction to my Conk The Roach game funny... some people are horrified just by the sight of the roaches running around the screen, let alone having to squish them.

They are virtual bugs... granted I didn't go with a cartoony look, but still virtual.

I'm finding Slender: The Arrival scary. I don't usually have a problem with scary games, but the atmosphere of that one gets me.

My kickstarter payout rate is about 50%.

That is, of the kickstarters that have funded, about half of them have sent me the swag I was told were my cut if it funded.

It will take a DAMN COOL kickstarter to get me to opt in again.

The game controller needs electric shock capability to REALLY stress you out, and a nice pop out Jom Jabbar....

Given where she is at in the fund raising process she is going to have to confront that fear face on. From what I have read about 1/3-12 of funding comes in the last week but she isn't anywhere close to that. She still has 73% to go.

My fear is that one day I'll become gullible and donate to a kickstarter.

I must drink beer. Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Oh no, a game might get made that you're interested in rather than one that's known to be profitable ahead of time.  What a tragedy that would be.

//Being more cynical than everyone else doesn't actually get you what you want.
 
2014-02-27 03:26:42 PM  
Damn, was hoping they might make another Dune game, maybe in another genre than RTS (not that I don't love me a good RTS- just would be nice to see more variety in Dune games).

You program a gamestate serialization routine that handles all the games scripts without breaking it, then.

Funny enough, the wiki page for La petite mort is blocked at my work. It's the first time I've ever run into a blocked wiki page.

I don't think he was saying it was an easy thing to do, just that it's worth finding a 1337 programmer who can just for game design and experience purposes.

Funny how programmer types forget normal people use their products and aren't necessarily programmers themselves.

Outlast is the scariest game I have ever played.

With Occulus Rift I would probably have a heart attack.

Back in the day, I remember there being this HUGE edit-war on the missionary position article, where people edited in and out a teddy bear in the illustration with back and forths of "It makes us look like pedophiles" vs. "not really that much like pedophiles adult women can have teddy bears, and what about the artists original intention???"

I've demon-stomped exploding tentacle babies and that was just the first chapter of Dead Space. Give me a gun and ammo; and I'll survive.

"So I get to the phone.  And it's quiet on the other end, and nobody answers.  Just when I'm about to hang up, some little girl on the other end tells me to wait for her brother.  So I'm waiting, I'm waiting, I hear something behind me, and it turns out to be some brat with a Gon'Jabbar.  I pass out from the pain, and twelve hours later I'm digging my way out of twelve tons of giant worm scat.  Yeah... so how was your day?"
