Sonic/Gunstar Heroes-Inspired ‘Freedom Planet’ Seeking Funding

Sunday, January 20th, 2013

We’ve spoken about Freedom Planet in the past as the game has been doing the rounds in the Sonic community for quite some time.

However, Strife (the developer) has now taken the game to the next step and is seeking funding using Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight.

At the time of writing the game has smashed its’ funding goal of $2000 with an impressive total of $7580. However, with 25 days to go you can still get involved with one of the more impressive SEGA-inspired projects out there.

Pelikan13 Starts a Kickstarter for Scud Race/Daytona USA-Inspired PC Racer

Greek indie developer Pelikan13 has begun a Kickstarter campaign for a new PC racing game called The 90s Arcade Racer and it’s heavily inspired by SEGA games like Scud Race and Daytona USA. A £10 pledge will get you a digital download of the game for PC, Mac or Linux with an estimated delivery of November this year. As you’d expect, more lavish options are available if you pledge higher amounts.

Kickstarter Project Aims to Create Book About the History of SEGA

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

Our good friends at SEGA have made me aware of this Kickstarter project that aims to create an extended ‘History of SEGA’ book based Sam Pettus’ original online history of SEGA article.

The aims of the project are listed below:

1) Update all the information in the book to be as accurate as can be.

2) Add more sources, quotes, and original text to help tell the story through the eyes of the people who experienced it.

3) Add more pictures to help tell the story.

4) Hire a real (expensive) editor to correct all mistakes and to enhance the readers experience. This will take almost 60% of the budget.

5) Get professionally done artwork on the cover to make this book as appealing outside as it is inside. This will take roughly 10% of the budget.

On top of that you can even pledge for hard copies of the book in many different styles (paperback, hardback, black and white, colour etc). It’s certainly an interesting little project and for those who like a good video-game inspired read it’ll certainly be well worth a pledge.
