Kickstarter may not be the financial bonanza it once promised to be, but it's still a boon for indie developers like Dystopia Interactive, whose surreal first-person mystery 103 recently received enough crowdfunding support to continue towards its year-end launch target.
The word “poltergeist” probably brings to mind TV static, diminutive psychics, and secret suburban burial sites.

Have you ever wondered how F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby might have turned out if J. R. R. Tolkien had written it?
