Rather than slowing down, the donations that gamers are sending Double Fine continue to be sent. For those just joining us, the studio is funding an adventure game through Kickstarter. It cleared its minimum goal of $400,000 in just over eight hours, and has now more than doubled it within 24 hours of initiation. 

Double Fine's game already has more backers than any other Kickstarter project, and the numbers just keep climbing. All funds earned over the now-tiny goal will be put back into the game and accompanying documentary, improving them both. 

The header image in this post, by the way, is already hopelessly outdated. That figure is rising quickly!

The outpouring of support, and the evidence that gamers are more than happy to pay for a product if they like the people making it, is a joy to watch. I am absolutely loving this.

Titan Souls is my PAX Prime 2014 game of show

Confession time: I'm pretty out of the loop when it comes to the indie game scene. I love me some Nidhogg, Samurai Gunn, and Crawl, but it's not uncommon for me to have only heard about these games just before release or late...more

Adam Freeman's Berzerk-influenced Hazard is pretty snazzy, also completely free

What if Berzerk were reborn as a first-person shooter using the DarkPlaces engine? What if the soundtrack were crafted by electronic music producer Wolfgun? What if you could be playing this game, right now, fo...more
