Sportsfriends narrowly gets funded on Kickstarter photo



As of just a few days ago, it seemed very possible that Sportsfriends -- the multiplayer-focused, four-game compendium that includes Johann Sebastian Joust, BaraBariBall, Super Pole Riders, and Hokra -- wouldn't be able to meet its $150,000 goal on Kickstarter. Thankfully, the campaign pulled through and was funded today.

I had expected this to garner more support than it did based on how passionate some people have been about these games (J.S. Joust, in particular) and the pretty solid list of supported platforms (PlayStation 3, Windows, Mac, and Linux). Not that it particularly matters now, but it was interesting to see this all play out. You did it, folks.

Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake is not as simple as it looks

Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake saw success on Kickstarter, and it's coming along nicely as evidence by our interview at PAX East. It looks super cute and simplistic, but there's way more depth than you'd imagine here. A deep ...more

The Darkest Dungeon gods were kind to me

Hot off its huge Kickstarter success, Darkest Dungeon is already in a playable-enough state to have a demo at PAX East 2014. Although the demo was only a short snippet of what's to come, it was easy to get a sense of the them...more

Punch frogs, get paid: New Curses 'N Chaos trailer
