Well, not this dude, in the picture. That's Gregory Weir, creator of Babies Dream of Dead Worlds and I Fell In Love With the Majesty of Colors. He'll be in the documentary, as will Amon26 and Auntie Pixelante.

Basically: this guy -- spinach, he's called -- wants to drive around the United States and interview designers of "expressive videogames" for a documentary entitled, You Meet The Nicest People Making Videogames.

"I don't know why," spinach says on the Kickstarter page, "but right now just strikes me as the right time for this kind of project."

spinach not only promises to freely release the documentary online once he's done, but he also plans on donating all the equipment he'll buy to his local community college. You silly indie kids and your charity. Why don't you just go hug a cloud, or something?

Anyway, you can donate money to the documentary at its Kickstarter page. At the time of writing, spinach has raised $6,381 of his $22k goal.

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more

PS4, Vita getting psychological romance adventure Alone With You

 Alone With You, presumably the prequel to "Stuck in the Middle With You," comes from the man behind 2D horror Home and its spray can pastel world seems cool. You're the only remnant of a failed terraforming outfit...more
