Cadence

Do I have a deal for you today! Not just one, but two cool games that want you to get involved. Plus, there’s a game that you can already play, even before you get a Kickstarter prize. So join me for fun, excitement and booze – after all, it is Thursday and we know what that means.

First up, I’ve told you a lot about Cadence. It’s one of my favorite locally developed games. Sure, Broforce is amazing, but Cadence seems to touch my soul and make me smile. Part puzzler, part musical toy, this game looks absolutely awesome, and pretty soon we’ll be able to throw money at it to make it happen.

But South Africa isn’t the only African country with game developers. The first game dev studio in Cameroon is looking for you Greenlight love for their game: Aurion, legacy of the Kori-Odan. An ARPG, here’s the official description:

In the game, you will take the role of Enzo Kori-Odan, the Prince of Zama who suffers a coup d’état from his brother in-law on the day of his coronation and marriage with Erine Evou. Exiled, you will go round the world with Erine in search of support. You will need to reunite your Aurionic Heritage to retrieve the throne.

I really want this game to get some love, if only to show off the distinctly African art style. Check it out:

Exploding Kittens has gone so far above and beyond its goals. With the campaign about to end, it’s sitting at $7 746 821 from 193 732 backers. In order to celebrate, they organized a bizarre twitter drinking game that looked guaranteed to get everyone smashed, as well as pizza parties at animal shelters. I actually want to donate a pizza party, too!

Of course it’s not all good news. The Stomping Land is doing everything wrong on Kickstarter and Early Access. From not paying developers to ignoring demands for refunds – it’s yet another cautionary tale about jumping in on a project before it’s got a clear plan for completion.
