I got a chance to play Ray's the Dead at PAX East this year and came away really looking forward to the game. It has solid mechanics, great art, and most importantly it had personality. After I finished playing, I felt like the game truly was unique and refreshing. Yes, it shares a strong resemblance to Pikmin in terms of controls, but its theme and concept are so different that it separates itself from the Nintendo classic.

The rag tag team at Ragtag Studio has just launched a Kickstarter for the game with a goal of $75,000. Putting forward $15 will get you the game, and anything higher than that will, of course, come with some extra goodies like plushies or cutouts. You can even pay $1,000 to get your likeness in the game, likely to be destroyed by a horde of zombies. The money they're raising will go towards a Unity license, musicians, and writers.

If you're interested in the game but don't feel like ponying up the dough for whatever reason, you can still give the game a boost on Steam Greenlight.

Four Sided Fantasy does both sidescrolling and screen wrapping

Way back in the day, most side-view took place on a single screen at a time, and often moving off the edge of one side caused the player to reappear on the other. (See: Joust, Asteroids, Mario Bros.) Then Super Mario Bros. c...more

Some weird stuff was just greenlit on Steam

When a new batch of Greenlight titles gets approved for release on Steam, I have a pretty simple routine: scan the list for recognizable names or thumbnails that show potential. That's it. The April 3 batch does have some gam...more
