    Saw this on Kickstarter the other day, and just had to support it due to it being a tactical turn-based combat strategy game based on the Viking era, with animated motion graphics. It seems to be inspired by Final Fantasy Tactics.

    Is anyone else following up on it? I didn't see any mention of it here.

    It seems to be worked on by ex-Bioware employees, who worked on the Old Republic, which makes me want to support them even more, ever since Bioware became gutted, and is a mere shadow of its former glory :mad:

    You won't hear any complaints from me, given the general poor quality of games with abhorrent DRM policies released by major game development houses nowadays.

    The increased number of posts about Kickerstarter games coincides with the rise of indie developers, who have some really good ideas up their sleeve, but have very limited funds to make their vision a reality.

    They bring a healthy dosage of creativity and daring to the gaming industry that is very much needed.
