1. Terminus Breach TD
I wrote about Terminus Breach TD last week so I would be remiss if I didn’t include it for this week’s entries. In that article I talked at length with Matt about events leading up to the relaunch of this game. This time I’ll keep it short and sweet as to why I think it will make a great addition to my collection.
Simply put, I don’t own a game like it. You could easily make the case that a game like Castle Panic is a tower defense game and I wouldn’t argue the point too much. But Terminus Breach is different. Others are more of a castle defense style of play with characters that help you out. In this game, you actually build towers and upgrade them to fight off the invaders as they try to muscle their way through.
I also love the fact that the solo play rules are the same as multi-player rules. There is no variation in how you play. Gimme a beer and some free time and I’m good to go with this one!
Terminus Breach is currently 60% funded and has 25 days remaining. However, if it funds in the first week each copy will be upgraded with Game Trayz. I just opened Vindication last night and it has Game Trayz too. This is a great upgrade that is given at no extra chrage. $49 is a great price.
2. RPGenerations: Tabletop Knights
I also wrote about RPGenerations: Tabletop Knights last week. This one blends two of my favorite hobbies: Dungeons & Dragons and comics. (If you haven’t read Gotham by Gaslight or Rumble, you should. The former is a Batman story set in more of a steampunk setting while the latter is all about a warrior trapped in the body of a scarecrow. So good.)
But the reason you should consider RPGenerations: Tabletop Knights is because Dominico Neziti’s art is fantastic and Andrew Cawood write’s good D&D products (which will accompany the comic if you back at the appropriate tier). In my opinion, artists don’t get enough visibility. They are typically mentioned as an afterthought (I’m guilty of having done it myself) as with “this game is great and the art by so and so is good too.” This is an opportunity for the artist to shine.
RPGenerations is 25% funded and has 29 days remaining.
3. A Fair, a Robbery, and a Promo Pack
I don’t own a single Artipia Games title. I just haven’t gotten around to it yet is all. I’ve got nothing against them as far as I know. But I want to throw in my support to them anyway. You see, they got robbed at Spiel this year. If you never back a single thing I ever talk about, please back this one. $1 is enough. Send a message that we support one another in this community. Simple as that.
A Fair, a Robbery, and a Promo Pack is 331% funded and has just 4 days remaining. This was a short campaign.
Wrapping Up Kickstart Your Week for 2018.11.11
