Hey guys, sorry to unleash the spam but I thought i'd let you know that the Ground Branch Kickstarter went live this morning!! (yes, I did jizz a little).

Ground Branch is a realistic tactical shooter trying to be a mix of Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon and the UT mod Infiltration. By realistic, I mean NOT like COD or BF. No respawns and unlocks in this game!

At this stage it is only going to be released as a multiplayer game, though if people pledge more than the goal amount they may look at making an SP campaign.

For those not familiar with kickstarter, it's a novel idea where Indie projects can garner support from the interwebs community to fund it. Basically the project sets a goal amount to be raised, people pledge, but if the goal amount is not met, then everybody gets their money back.

Anyway here is the link:
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/670 ... und-branch
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/670 ... und-branch

And i'll embed the Kickstarter video as well:



The vid is made up of completely pre-alpha material.


The minimum pledge amount is $15USD which gets you a digital key when the game is released on Steam.

Please excuse the spam :)

I just met Tim Schafer! (and got a photo with him!) :D

(Tim Schafer, for those unaware, worked on Brutal Legend, Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, Full Throttle, and Psychonauts)

He's at the Game Masters Exhibition, at ACMI in Melbourne, and tonight he held a book signing after a Q&A!

This isn't news, I know, but I don't care. I'm ecstatic! :)

let's hope they have more games then the original Xbox games on the 360 did.
