Yes, it’s another Kickstarter, but I think it looks awesome. It’s a stop-motion sci-fi adventure inspired by pulp sci-fi and games like The Dig and Full Throttle.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/warbirdgames/jack-houston-and-the-necronauts

Jack’s adventure takes place not far from home, on our neighboring planet of Venus. But this isn’t the lifeless planet we know today, this Venus is a sweltering vine jungle teaming with strange beasts of horn, tooth and claw. This is the Venus imagined by science fiction authors and artists in the first half of the century, the legacies of whom include John Carter of Mars, Carson of Venus, Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, Tom Corbett: Space Cadet and many more.

If the vile jungle beasts and devious plant life of Venus fail to overcome our hero, the rulers of this savage world will surely give Jack a run for his money. These strange entities are able to inhabit the remains of any creature after death, fortifying and building upon their skeletal structures until they are virtually indestructible war machines with the superior intellect of a god. With the tribal inhabitants of the entire planet under their crushing heel, the undead Venusian warlords threaten to pulverize Jack like an ant. But our clever test pilot will uncover a shocking revelation about the origin of these “Necronauts,” a connection between the creatures and himself that could be their undoing… and his.

Well…it’s got off to a better start than Sam Suede. Quite a modest total they’re asking for, too.

when you don’t have all that drama it’s easier.of course the modest budget is a plus too.

Just shows the problems of Kickstarter. This project met it’s goal, but due to the fact that the money is only claimed at the end they had over $10k in failed donations.

Hopefully they will make that back on and get the project back on track.

     

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

Such a shame. A false pledge of that magnitude should almost be considered by law as fraud.
