It’s been a while since we’ve done a Kickstarter article, but here’s one that caught me by the eye and the wallet.
I may have mentioned that I am a fan of Matthew Colville, a writer, DM, and YouTuber and the writer of the Critical Role official comic book. I may have mentioned it repeatedly to anyone who will listen. So when I discover he has a Kickstarter in mind I was all kinds of ready to lay my money on the table, it would inevitably be Dungeons & Dragons oriented, and worth the money.
Strongholds and Streaming is a two-part project:
Just when you thought the world was done with Zombie’s another one rises from the grave. Well, in this case, the game rises from Kickstarter and we are very lucky to have a preview copy of it. So it’s time to check your pockets for useful items, ensure that your nappy is securely fastened and put on a brave face, it’s time for us to take on Zombie Babies.
It was back in October last year that I first supported Family Plot, and I was anticipating its arrival. I have had my final copy for a few months now and thought it was about time that I finally reviewed it.

Traditional games have become such a raging success over the past few years, that it’s no surprise that some companies have gotten rather good at producing them. Two years ago, we received the world wide success that is Exploding Kittens from The Oatmeal. This game has been played so often at our meetups, that it’s sometimes tempting to buy a second copy of it, just so more people can get involved. Instead however, there are expansions for the game and now, The Oatmeal are back with a brand new title.
So, first of all, we want to say massive congratulations to Jason from Sketchy Games on his recent successful Kickstarter campaign finally raising a massive £21,000 from an original target of £10,000 from 654 backers. The game is due to be printed sometime this year with the copies due to be shipped sometime in January 2017. The print and play version is designed for 2-5 players and has 141 cards which consist of:
As you probably know, we here at GeekOut are always on the lookout for interesting developments in a lot of areas. We always try to back upcoming games if we can, as well as technology and more. I must admit I am a bit of a fan of card games like Cards Against Humanity and Bucket Of Doom, and last week a game called Death Wish caught my eye with the campaign via Kickstarter. After watching the promo video I decided to bump up the £20 for the base game.
If you like point and click adventure games, then you’re going to thoroughly enjoy Gibbous – But what is it exactly? What makes this a Cthulhu Adventure? Is it any good? Join Timlah as we look through the demo of Gibbous.
It is at this point that I commence squealing like a fangirl in an old fashioned kettle.
For those of you not already aware, Journey Quest is a fantasy comedy series from the same beautiful minds that brought us The Gamers trilogy, my all time favourite RPG comedy series. It follows the story of Superfluous “Perf” a yellow-graded wizard who can cast only a few spells and can only rarely get them right, naturally he’s the chosen one and wields the Legendary Sword of Fighting who does not like him, not one little bit.

So Psychonauts was the 3D action-adventure/platformer game that mellowed the heart of anglo-ozzie fedora wearing hate-monger Ben “Yahtzee” Croshaw so much so that anyone who has not played the game earned his finger crunching torture, and not without good reason. It’s a game that can reignite a childhood of true joy, and an accessible fantasy world filled with wonders, and it’s one of many classic games brought to life by the creative maniac and mogul Tim Schafer of Double Fine, and previously Lucas Arts.
As the young psychic acrobat Raz you learn how to navigate inside the subconscious minds of others, and in the process you uncover a terrible brain stealing plot. You explore rich and stylistically unique levels crafted by the minds of the NPCs whose innermost thoughts you intrude on, solving puzzles made unique by the impossibilities the playground of the mind make possible. The real world is far from mundane, filled with fascinating individuals, and not a cardboard cut-out amongst them. (more…)
