Before we go into this month’s entrants, prior spotlighted project Compatibility: An 8 Bit Musical is back on Kickstarter. Previously, creator Daniel Kaplan was looking for funding to help fund opening the curtain on the show’s maiden production at the Orlando Shakespeare Theater back in April. This time around, the producers are looking to take the show to next year’s Orlando International Fringe Theater Festival. So, if you missed out on your opportunity to contribute then, or want to contribute again, look up their project on Kickstarter.
Four years in the making, Rhythm Destruction is slated for release in October. However, the 2-man team at Curious Panda Games is turning to Kickstarter for some additional funding for the stretch run. According to their very informative Kickstarter page, using the crowd-funding site provides them with the ability to gauge interest and accept pre-orders. The funding will allow the creative team to begin production on future downloadable content.
If you don’t have the money to help support their Kickstarter project, you can help the Curious Panda team in another way. Curious Panda has submitted the game to the new Steam Greenlight. This is a new program introduced by Valve to help delve through their huge catalog of game submissions by independent developers by having the Steam community determine which games are worthy of placement on the service. You can help get Rhythm Destruction on Steam by going to their Steam Greenlight page and giving them a thumbs-up.
Cool Kickstarter Reward: For just $10 you receive a digital copy of the game, an exclusive in-game medal, and all future DLC stages and other content for life!
The Ultimate 7
From across the universe, a band of warriors is assembled to confront the ultimate evil. That’s the elevator pitch for Robert Wawrzyniak’s 12 issue sci-fi epic, The Ultimate 7.
You may have seen Wawrzyniak touring local shops and on the convention scene promoting his title – I think I saw him last year at the Coliseum of Comics in Seminole Towne Center. A passion project over a decade in the making, the Kickstarter project is generating funds to keep printing the 384 pages of sci-fi glory. With some stunning artwork, including the gorgeous Issue #1 cover by Greg Horn, the titles are definitely worth a look.
Wawrzyniak and the Ultimate 7 will have a table at next weekend’s Orlando Comic Expo.
Cool Kickstarter Reward: For $35, you receive all three volumes – the entire 12-issue run.
