Skyjacker

Drifter: A Space Trading Game

Drifter is a … space trading game :) It shall play on an open-world sandbox environment with thousands of stars. Celsius Game Studios invites you to “live the simple life of a merchant, become a bounty hunter, take on work for hire, become a fearsome pirate, or simply explore the galaxy around you, the choice is yours.”. Drifter is targeted for the Windows PC, Mac and iOS. Currently they accumulate $40,150 with a goal for $50,000 goal (~80.3%) with 17 days to go.

Two Guys SpaceVenture

Two Guys SpaceVenture

The creators of the Space Quest series are on kickstarter for their new sci-fi adventure, Two Guys SpaceVenture. Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe will be working together as a team once more and promise to deliver lots of unique humor, dialog, hilarious death sequences and tons of pop-culture references. Murphy and Mark put it this way: “This game will make you feel comfortable playing with your children, but with some entertainment that will safely appeal only to the adult psyche”. IF the kickstart is successful Two Guys SpaceVenture will be released for Windows PC, Mac, Linux, iPad and Android Tablets (from day one they add). Currently TGSV accumulates $180,371 from a goal of $500.000 (~36%) with 25 days to go.

Edge of Space

Edge of Space

HandyMan Studios proposes Edge of Space, a dynamically generated sci-fi platform-adventure game with exploration elements, vehicles (like mechs), epic bosses, pets, rare enemies and treasure chests, all in fast paced combat in space. HandyMan folks plan to launch their space adventure game for the PC and Mac. If successful they will be set to launch in August this year, with Beta launching at the end of the Kickstarter campaign. Edge of Space currently accumulates $5,793 of $25,000 goal (~23%) with 20 days to go.

    Veav here from the Skyjacker effort – thanks for the shout-out! We’ve had a slow start but we’re still in the game and we’ll have some new vids/screenshots in the days to come, as well as good news on the kickstarter front. (And an extra bit of thanks for Edge of Space too, that game’s going to kick ass.) Skyjacker will rise.

      Best of luck for Skyjacker Veav! Yea, Edge of Space looks fun. They had a good increase in the last day or two. Hope you and HandyMan can make it.

      • Veav says:

        Edge of Space will, I believe. Skyjacker – time is running short, but we’ve learned a lot from this first effort. So even if we don’t make it this time that won’t be the end of Skyjacker. What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, eh? }:D

    LordShaggy here, from Edge of Space! – Want to give a big thanks for the shout out as well, and thank you Veav for your belief in our project. SkyJacker looks pretty amazing itself! I am glad that this won’t be the end of Skyjacker. I miss space shooters like that!

    We have a long road to go, but with support like yours Veav I think we can make it! Kickstarter is tough.
