Anyone who's ever tried to balance artistic inspiration with the realities of everyday life will be familiar with The Novelist's central question: "Can you achieve your dreams without pushing away the people you love?" The game's designer, Kent Hudson is intimately familiar with this question; after more than ten years working on action games including Deus Ex: Invisible War and BioShock 2, he recently quit his day job to focus on the self-funded indie he bills as "a game about life, family, and the choices we make."

If King's Quest (with maybe a little Space Quest and Leisure Suit Larry mixed in) had been set in a modern day metropolis, it might look a little something like City Quest, an indie comic adventure now seeking crowdfunding through Kickstarter.

If at first you don't succeed, try again with better people – or at least with bigger names. That seems to be the motto behind Gato Salvaje's second Kickstarter appeal after the first one fell short last summer. But they're impessive names at that, as the Spanish developer plans to bring aboard renowned comic book writer Greg Rucka and actress Ash Sroka, best known as the beloved Tali’Zorah from the Mass Effect RPG series.
