Some Crowdfunding You Should Know About

Interface Zero 2.0: Full Metal Cyberpunk

I've reviewed a lot of Interface Zero stuff over the last few years, and the original Interface Zero was part of my first Top Six, even though I'm not a big fan of Cyberpunk. There is some fun stuff in this setting, and IZ2.0 is overhauling a lot of the stuff from the first edition to make it run smoother.

This one is already funded (by, like, a LOT), and has 18 days to go, with the sweet spots being the $20 pledge (which gets you digital copies of basically everything IZ related thus far), $30 for the above and the Explorer's Edition of the book and $50 for the full hardcover. Fabled Environments, sponsors of my Birthday Blog Giveaway, are also working up stuff for IZ2.0, which just sweetens the deal.

Storm Battalion

A self described mix of Hellboy, Davey Crockett and Tesla Punk, is the brainchild of Brennan Bishop, who is a frequent contributor to Third Eye Games titles like their Apocalypse Prevention Inc. line. The gist is that during the American Revolution, these storms broke out around the land and began twisting everything in it's wake. Now the year is 1935 and the Canadians and Americans are using cool powers and crazy technology to wage war against the twisted monsters brought about by the storms.

Last I heard, the book is using the Dynamic Gaming System that powers Apocalypse Prevention Inc., Wu Xing and Part-Time Gods, and is already written, they are just trying to cover the printing costs, art and stuff. They have 50 days left and still need to raise most of their $3000 budget. The sweet spots are $15 for the PDF, $35 for PDF and Print and $60 for PDF, Print and T-Shirt.
