This reminds me of a educational title that I once worked on. It looks like they are definitely headed in the right direction for it to be both a fun and educational project! I hope they get their funding.

Double Fine is making what I believe is their first every sequel, and YOU can help make it happen!

https://www.fig.co/campaigns/psychonauts-2
Psychonauts is a classic action/adventure platformer from acclaimed developers Double Fine Productions (that’s us!) and written by industry legend Tim Schafer, who created Broken Age, Full Throttle, and Grim Fandango amongst many other things. We want to make a sequel!

This is terrifying for China (and I'm sure it will have consequences for the rest of the world as well)

The flammable cardboard floormat gives us something to grab when we need to relocate the fire closer to our neighbor's house.

P.S. if my neighbors are reading this, not you neighbors, the other neighbors.

Like fantasy graphic novels? Then check out this kickstarter

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jakeparker/skyheart-book-i-the-star-seed

I've backed a previous project where he features some of the characters in the book, and Jake Parker did not disappoint! I'm looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of this book as he continues to churn out more awesome!

This Kickstarter doesn't look likely to succeed with less than a day to go, but I'm sure they would produce some awesome stuff if they were to make their pledge goal by some miracle:

Help us design a Sasquatch for our indie feature film project. A fantasy, drama, romance for the entire family.

Given their past work, I expect great things from this team:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/zealouscreative/the-sasquatch-of-jackson-farm

Check it out and at the very least share it so they can get all the support they deserve!

Here's one being put together by my friends over at Schell Games:
