Former Rockstar man Shawn Alexander Allen and his partner Diana Santiago have a passion, and that passion is Treachery in Beatdown City. Their game has less than a day left on Kickstarter and just about $10K left to do before reaching funding, so anything could happen. Unlike the recently funded Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn, Treachery has gotten a lot of support from other game developers. Tyler Doak, creator of "manic brawling action" game Aces Wild has even gone as far as to offer a code for his game to anyone who backs Treachery in Beatdown City between now and the campaign's end. That alongside with the pre-alpha demo of the game that goes out to anyone who backs $10 or more makes the instant gratification quotient on this Kickstarter a lot more persuasive.
While I think Treachery will make it's funding before tomorrow is over, it would be a nice insurance policy if Shaq were willing to appear in the game. Maybe he could be a D.J. who charges $35,000 per gig? Let him know if you think it's a good idea!
