You might remember that last year I created a kickstarter where I basically just asked for $200 to make whatever the hell I wanted in game form. I set a release date, made fun of Kickstarter, and went quiet for a few months. At the appropriate date, I released Funeral, a semi-success that was a lot harder for me to actually make than it would seem.
I took the money of random people and then delivered the exact nebulous product they wanted in the time frame that I promised. It is literally in the 1% of Kickstarters.
So now I have a new kickstarter that I am calling Oooh way too scary game. From the page itself:
So with that in mind, the next game that I make will be a horror game that is probably not all that scary. It will be sort of side scrolly and you can’t jump and most of the time it will be about interacting with things and talking to people instead of doing anything game-y. What I am looking at is Hugo’s House of Horrors mixed with “His Face All Red” in a tortilla made out of Tom Gauld comics. Side dishes include: that scary scene where Bob crawls over the couch in Twin Peaks, Dan Clowes’ Like A Velvet Glove Cast in Iron, and some Dear Estherisms.
I want to make a funny game that has some scary parts. I want to make it available for free on the internet. I would like $125 to do that.
If you liked any of my previous games or any of the writing on this blog, think about kicking in some Canadian lunch money.
Oh also I have been making little development GIFs and posting them here.
