I have a strong desire.

I have a strong desire to work on a game based around exploration.
I have been playing Conan Exiles, and Monster Hunter on the PS4. I also put a ton of time into Terraria a while back and  that still has part of my brain. Those games are informing my  thoughts on gaming in interesting ways.
It occurred to me that pretty much all of my favorite video games have involved unmasking the unknown at one level or the other. Why  not try to embrace that at the gaming table?
Perhaps as part of AAIE or as a separate animal?

I  will never have any time to play it but, whatever.
A new project / idea being a tremendous waste of time and energy is a given, so no use complaining about it.

Kick Starter "Streets of Steel"

As of this writing 29 days to go.

Streets of Steel look like it will fund, and looks awesome.
Being an old Double Dragon player, and a Street of Rage devote this is right in my wheel house.

From the page:
"A generation ago, Steel City was a shining beacon of cooperation, peace and prosperity. Neighbors cleaned up after their dogs. Graffiti rarely used offensive language. PTA meeting attendance was high. Then, the Disaster struck. Now, Steel City is a mere shadow of its former glory. Roving bands of thugs terrorize honest citizens. Evil corporations dump toxic waste in the street. PTA meeting attendance is low.
Tired and fed up, a few brave Steel City heroes have banded together to stem the tide of carnage. YOU are one of those heroes. YOU will clean up these STREETS OF STEEL."

This game just looks cool to me. Very nostalgic, with what looks to be a pretty solid mechanical emulation of side scroller beat em up design.

Like I have said a hundred times, I don't do affiliate stuff. I don't know the authors ...yadda yadda.. so feel free to follow the link from another site or whatever.....

Kickstarter: Nagual, by Scott Gladstein

I know nothing about this game or it's author other than  the kick starter has 8 days to go, is 65% funded, and the game involves Giant Aztec Robots Fighting Aliens.
I mean....
That idea needs to fund.

The Blurb from kickstarter:
"Nagual is a tabletop roleplaying game based around a world of Aztec-inspired giant robots who are the last line of defense against an alien invasion. It is as much inspired by Mesoamerican mythology and spirituality as it is by 80s and 90s mecha series.
Nagual distinguishes itself from other games with it’s very easy to learn, non-intrusive, open, fast-play system, unique mechanics, and its totally novel premise."
Kickstarter link: HERE

I get nothing for you following that link or any other. I don't know the author, and I'm not on the backer list because I don't need one more game I'm never going to have time to play. 
With that said: I love the idea of the game, so why not give it a look.
