Blackwake is a work-in-progress game in a grossly underrepresented genre - FPS naval combat. As the game's Kickstarter page and trailer show, everything the genre entails are well accounted for already - sea dogs getting blown away by cannonfire (complete with some glorious ragdolls), ships crashing into other ships, galleons battling on the high seas, the works. If the sheer number of glorious moments shown in the game's Kickstarter trailer above taken from a bunch of different Twitch streams is anything to go by, the game's looking like a right laugh already.
Don't you just hate that when you want to watch something on your TV, you have to find the remote, pick up the archaic device, and choose the channel you want to watch. How bad is that?

The Kickstarter campaign for Perception has come to an end and has been successfully funded!
Deep End Games has shared a new gameplay trailer for Perception, a game where players take the role of a blind woman named Cassie exploring a haunted mansion. The trailer offers an extended look at the game's unique gameplay, and let me tell you, it looks terrifying.
Food, we love it. Food without any effort, we love that even more. So why not head to Kickstarter and pledge some money to Cheese Posties, a new campaign which hopes to bring the deliciousness of cheese toasties to your door.
In case you missed it, Shenmue 3 was announced at E3 last week, kind of. I mean, it was announced, but the game technically doesn't exist in any way shape or form at the moment. It's just a Kickstarter campaign for the game, and while it secured funding in under 12 hours, there seems to be a hell of a long way to go before the game is how the developer actually wants it to be.
Remember the Micro Drone 2.0, the already insanely versatile and easy to use palm sized drone? It was tiny, extremely user friendly, and pretty affordable.

The Micro Drone 3.0 however, comes all in one, and has already secured over 300% of its funding goal on IndieGoGo.
In this day and age everyone's a photographer. If they have a phone in their hands, chances are they'll use it to take a picture of their day, whether it's a selfie, a photo of food, or how the day is being spent.

During the announcement, Sony revealed that it would need to be funded first and they were looking for $2 million on Kickstarter. Well, just 9 hours later, Shenmue 3 passed the $2 million mark.

Holograms are still even today a technology which is used to reference future technology advancements. But not any more as Holus hopes to bring hologram technology into your homes for various applications.
