    So anyone feel like Armikrogging this?

    • Armane

      I think I’d rather just see Nintendo step in and fund it. Even if it means exclusivity. I just feel the tablet would make a great platform for insanity effects.

    Kickstarter will fail

  • Rogerrmark

    So the Kickstart was finally funded?

    • $1484028

      as of right now, not even close.

      right now as i write this they’re at $267,175 of $750,000.
      and Kicktraq’s projections only put them at hitting ~$350k (~46% of their goal) by the end of the week (when their KS is finished).

      its not IMPOSSIBLE that they can succeed, but their daily pledge amount (based on Kicktraq) would have to jump up to over 6x their daily average to date over the next 7 days to do so.
      and obviously with every passing day that it doesn’t, the needed magnitude of the required jump for the remaining days escalates.

        Lol,tough indeed. Too bad,though,it does look kinda neat.

    • SiliconNooB

      It isn’t going to get funded.

      They’re not going to get 480k in the final seven days.

  • I hope restoring your sanity in this game isn’t as simple as just casting a green recovery spell. That kind of sucked some of the tension out of Eternal Darkness.

  • TheGunheart

    I just hope they don’t include that stupid green health bar. It’s not exactly a mystery why the room is upside down when there’s a handy little meter telling me exactly how much my perception of reality should be screwed up.

  • Blackbishop

    Let’s make this happens! Every dollar counts!

    Although I’d like to play as a sharknado lol.

  • Really looking forward to this now!
