Monday Recap

Welcome to my Monday recap of past featured games - the main focus this week again being the final push for Vidar.

Vidar by Dean Razavi
A despairing RPG-Puzzler set in a town on the brink. Random storytelling. Random puzzles. Constant loss.




Current Status - as of 23rd February, it is $16,259 towards a final target of $18,000 on Kickstarter; it needs to reach the target by Friday 27th February.  Check it out and strongly consider helping the final push for funding for what is a really interesting project.



Arco by Last Minute Games
A fast-paced puzzle RPG set in a fantasy world. Fight hordes of monsters, meet quirky characters and challenge epic bosses.



Current Status - as of 23rd February it is kr11,989 (Danish) towards its target of kr165,000 by Monday 16th March.  Btw kr165,000 = $25,000





Tiny Robot Justice Squad by Mind Realy
Tiny Robot Justice Squad is a 2D action platformer/arena shooter for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux platforms. It has explosions, big guns, big bosses and quick-paced platform gameplay. The game is being developed by Mind Relay (which is actually just one person!), with all proceeds generated by the game to be donated to the charity GamesAid which helps disabled and disadvantaged young people. Carry on reading to learn more about the game and how it will support good causes!




Current Status - A fun-looking game with proceeds from it being donated to a good cause. Check it out and make sure it gets greenlit.

Barbara-ian by Studio Owlbear
Break-neck dungeoneering with 1 hit point. You play Barbara-ian, a mythical badass with perma-rage & a penchant for smashing. Featuring super fast paced physics based mayhem, one hit is all that stands between you and a quick restart 



Current Status - went up on Greenlight on 14th February but still needs your votes to get Greenlit - highly recommended for 30 minutes of high quality fun.

Mad Games Tycoon by Eggcode

Current Status - currently at 0.150215A with changes and bug fixes being made on a consistent basis; the latest update added Russian Language support.  It is worth noting that it is very playable at the moment and worth supporting if you like these types of games.

Mordheim: City of the Damned by Rogue Factor

Set in the Warhammer World's decimated Empire city, Mordheim: City of the Damned is a turn-based tactical game where you lead warbands into bloody and lethal skirmishes. The game blends RPG elements, fast-paced tactical combat and intricate unit customization in a time wrought by chaos and rivalry where only the strongest survive.




Current Status - Recently had it's third update, adding a new warband, warband management and some new battle types. Last week it had a significant patch as well, fixing a number of bugs from the last update. There is a really handy guide on their early access page for what will be coming in future updates as well.
