Ray's the Dead lives on with a new and improved Kickstarter

I liked Overlord, I loved Pikmin, and I'll probably dig Ray's the Dead.

You might remember the game from its successful Steam Greenlight campaign, its showing at Sony's E3 2013 press conference, or that canceled Kickstarter. Ragtag Studio is back with another crowdfunding campaign, one with a significantly lower funding goal. "We ended our first campaign early for a variety of reasons, most notably, that we thought we could do things better."

It's looking better than ever, and in the time since the last Kickstarter attempt, work that was going to be contracted out has been handled in-studio. The team also over-estimated the cost of licenses for current-gen game development, lowering the budget further. As such, Ray's the Dead only needs $30,000 this time -- and it's nearly there with 30 days to go.

After hearing the song in the trailer, I had to look up who was responsible. Why, it's Jake Kaufman, of course! Good stuff as usual. Ray's will be out next year on Windows, Mac, Linux, and PS4.

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 l...more

Ironically, the Kickstarter for Hollow Knight looks solid

I have had my eye on Hollow Knight for a few days, but had not yet pulled the trigger on highlighting it. It is a pretty 2D action game (though the color palette is a bit muted for my taste) starring some sort of insect-pers...more

Solve your own murder in Why Am I Dead At Sea

You have been murdered, and you are now a ghost. It is up to you to solve the mystery of your own death. No, not like that. No, not like that either. Okay actually, it is sort of like Ghost Trick. It looks like the spirit in...more

This seems like a bad title for a game, but it's Snot

I'll admit: I very nearly deleted the email about Snot without a second thought. How could a game named after nasal mucus be worth even a few seconds of my time? Still, I did my due diligence and played the video attached, a...more
