Dead State - Kickstarter Launched!
 
DoubleBear has launched the Kickstarter for Dead State - I know a lot of you have been waiting for this, so head over to pledge. They are looking for $150k over the next 29 days. The start has been a little slow compared to recent high profile projects but hopefully some more exposure will get this this cooking (Brian, if you're reading this - make more noise).
The video shows quite a bit of gameplay and here is a core feature list:
Quote:

-A PC RPG with stats, skills, and perks that make a huge difference on your character’s abilities.
-Dozens of characters with branching, reactive dialogue, and randomized events that unfold over months of in-game time – player decisions and the death of loved ones can change relationships drastically.
-Turn-based combat where line-of-sight and noise affect whether you are spotted or not, making for extremely tense encounters.
-Base-building mechanics featuring multiple upgrades, NPC jobs, and item manufacturing.
-Scavenging mechanics that require players to find supplies, weapons, armor, and other items to keep their allies fed and alive.
-A morale system that factors in player success/failure, allies’ faith in the player, and the overall strength of the shelter.
-Crisis Event dialogues that factor in political maneuvering and making difficult choices that affect your whole shelter.
-Reactive AI that responds realistically to combat situations, player commands, and the state of panic from the presence of zombies.
More information.

Merin June 6th, 2012 05:24

Pledged. Hopefully I can give them more in the future, but other KS campaigns have drained me…

rossrjensen June 6th, 2012 06:45

I will be contributing before the end of the Kickstarter.

Capt. Huggy Face June 6th, 2012 07:06

Pledged. Knock 'em dead, Brian and crew.

JonNik June 6th, 2012 07:56

Well, no unicorns was a heavy blow, but I had to pledge anyway :)

Very good video. I appreciated the insight on the current status of product design decision making from the big company marketing departments (Zombie helicopter ftw!) ;)

Pledged!

Pledged, I really hope this makes it.

If I keep funding projects that look interesting I will have to start my own kickstarter with the purpose of gathering funds to use for backing more kickstarter projects.

A few weeks ago I wouldn't have given this a second thought, I'll probably back it yet before it's over but I won't do so in a hurry.

Pledged. This is starting to drain my purse, but on the other hand, I would be happy if only ONE of my most anticipated kickstarters delivers (Shadowrun, Wasteland, Dead State etc.). I think I've pledged to about 6 or 7 games now. If one of them is as good as I hope, I'll be happy. If half of them pulls through I'll be delirious. And if all of them succeeds I'm pretty sure I would break down in tears…

They are doing well, already at $22000 now. Looks like they'll easily pass 30% funding on the first day.

Now this is an idea!

Already busted my gaming budget for this year…on kickstarters.

Estimated release date: december 2013. Not for so soon.

They aim at a lot of customers with their low price tag.No stretch goals either.

Stretch goals will be announced when the set goal is in sight:

Seems like a good first day to me. I know I've seen you around the Iron Tower forums, so you've probably seen this, but perhaps others haven't. Dead State is trending well, according to this Kickstarter-predicting site, as someone posted on the Dead State boards:
