Here is another Kickstarter title that looks stunning. They have a little alpha version up that can give you sense a of gameplay.
I tried the slice last night and came away impressed with its art style and its RTS gameplay. Check it out. I would love to play this game on either the 3DS or even better on the Wii-U.
The game is funded at 186% with $60,468 but the stretch goals of $65, 535 and $75, 000 have yet to be hit. With 5 days left, Nintendo fans should look into this one. I am planning to bid later in the week if makes the 3DS funding.
[Update] The game has nearly reached its $75000 goal for the Wii-U. That’s HD assets. DO WANT. There is a $15 add-on if you want to secure a copy for 3DS and the Wii-U (provided it gets there).
SEGA…please hear me. Do something interesting. I miss you. E3, maybe?

One of my favorite memories of the Sega Genesis is playing Road Rash 3 at friend’s house. Driving up the scaling highway on Superbike and smacking people with a bat brought smiles to my face.
In my mind, the series hasn’t seen a proper sequel since the Sega Saturn era…which was a marvelous little title in its own right that captured the essence of the Mega Drive games.
This kickstarter is looking to bring back that style of gameplay to Wii-U and to PCs by hitting a $160,000 goal. THe game is being designed using Unity. Currently the kickstarter is about half way there. And yes, I am a backer of the Wii-U Tanooki tier at $17.
Definitely give the team a lookout if capturing the feeling of a lost classic appeals to you! Also, while I may be busy working 7 days a week and haven’t gotten to video reviews – just know that I’ve been busy backing important games (look for my mug if you pick up Shovel Knight) and working for Nintendo (letting them know the Wii-U needs more games dammit – I also may have written a comment or two asking for Earthbound).
