It feels like damn near a whole week since I've written about a Kickstarter project. Missed it, didn't you?
Dead State is the latest, a PC zombie RPG for the people sick of zombie games. It's created by Double Bear, which houses former Obsidian developers Brian Mitsoda and Annie Carlson. If you're really nerdy, you'll know Mitsoda wrote the Malkavians in Vampire: The Masquerade -- Bloodlines, so almost for that alone, the game could be worth funding and/or buying.
The trailer isn't going to blow your socks off with stellar presentation or fancy graphics or any modern conveniences like that, but it does have some atmosphere, enough that I'm looking forward to seeing more of it.
Anyhoo, Double Bear is asking $150,000, of which it's currently raised a little over $32,000. Hit the source if you're keen.
