Ray's the Dead  



Ray's the Dead is like a zombie Pikmin hybrid

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.

Sorry, Greenlight developers, no more offering Steam keys for votes

It seems as though developers pushing games through release via Steam Greenlight have been promising keys as a means of amassing votes from prospective buyers. Not that this notion is surprising in any way, but it's certainly...more
