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.

Space Beast Terror Fright is my new drug

Space Beast Terror Fright is Johannes "johno" Norneby's interpretation of the sci-fi first-person shooter: take the artful tension-building and high-octane muzzle flash from James Cameron's Aliens, add in the corridor c...more

Anoxemia finds horror at the bottom of the sea

The thought of dismemberment and/or mutilation freaks me out, for sure. The thought of instead being stuck at the bottom of the ocean with a dwindling oxygen supply evokes a different kind of terror. Sure, there will probabl...more
