A while back we reported that The Videogame History Museum needed your help to create a 30,000 dollar kickstarter fund, and that goal been met!  As of this writing in fact, said goal has been exceeded by roughly 70%.  The team behind the project released a gushing thank you to the museum's supporters, but keep in mind that they are still accepting donations.  The kickstarter fund is only the beginning as the team prepares to take things to the next level.  Not all of this money will be available for use either.  Organizations such as Amazon Payments will be taking their cut of the pie.

Even if you don't believe the world needs a gaming museum, you have to respect a group of people that wants to create such a massive project from scratch.  That's ambition.  Considering how much money people can spend on games I encourage anyone able to toss at least another 25 bucks in the hat.  You'll get a neato pin and a pass to the museum when it (hopefully) opens.

With the help of indie publisher Midnight City, High Strangeness is coming out late this year on PC and consoles. Holmes and Ben "AgentMOO" Shostak talked about the "12- bit" adventure and enemies that get more nefarious and capable as you do when you switch to the 16-bit world.more

Interstellar Selfie Station is what happens when you keep the best part of a scrapped project

Christine Love (Analogue: A Hate Story) was making an FMV game and decided that it wasn't fun, but the development tools were. Because of this insight, we can all take 2 bit selfies for days. I wonder how long before my browser's built in spell check accepts "selfies." Yes, you. Do it. Though I don't know if you can beat Holmes and Love.more
