    Expeditions: Conquistador plans to support the penguin. It's a historical, tactical, turn-based RPG. I am a sucker for historical stuff and I think the gameplay videos look quite good. Right now it's not looking too good for them to make the funding goal, but there is tons of time left for this project and hopefully they get funded.

    Hi guys:

    I found two projects this week:

    Evilot is a puzzle / defense game.

    Linux will probably be the best platform to play the game
    told me a developer in a private message. 19 days to go and they still need more than $5,000.

    The Other Brothers is is an episodic platformer.

    With today's technology we are able to bring back that classic 16-bit aesthetic and combine it with modern mechanics, physics and game play to bring you a platforming experience like no other!
    It will support Linux, but the guys need to acquire Unity 4 licenses for that. 10 days to go, but they still need more than $30,000.

    I pledge to both. Seems difficult, but I hope they get the money.

    I'm all for this game being made but I'll be absolutely flabbergasted if they manage to meet their lofty goal of $900,000, or even come anywhere near it. I know David Crane has some name recognition but that goal is really really far out there.

    It does seem a bit high but if they support cross-platform and multiplayer it's not too unrealistic.

    I thought platformers were obsolete until I played Trine.

    Considering they're about 25% of the way through their Kickstarter campaign time wise and they haven't even reached 2% of their funding goal I'm going to go ahead and say their goal is unrealistic.

    The nice part about kickstarter is that you lose nothing to simply try to fund something even if it fails. So, there is no reason to back away from a project that seems to be failing, but just donate and hope it gets going.
    If nothing else, it gives them an indication of how many would be willing to buy the game.

    (I've already put in $400 into Kickstarter, yikes)

    Have you played oryginal Pitfall (Atari 2600 AFAIK)? IMHO it was mediocre, even for 80's. Trine (and sequel) is different, it is a revolution in physics and graphics. $900 000 for Pitfall remake... seems like a joke

    Chalk up another beloved classic adventure game series revival for the penguin. Broken Sword - The Serpent's Curse just started up their Kickstarter campaign and in their FAQ it states that they will support Linux. They're already over 67k in less than a day of the 400k they're aiming for so this should easily make funding and then some.

    Arakion will have Linux support at launch.
