There's probably been a few posts about this already, but today's the last day! You only need to put up a dollar to vote, and right now Brad Muir's idea isn't among the top four! He had a T-Rex hat and everything!
I cant believe Hack n' Slash is winning. It sounds like a generic game with bad meta-jokes that aren't funny for very long like DLC Quest.
the game is apparently all about breaking it by using exploits and hacks. i don't see how that's generic.
I really hope Brad's idea makes the cut, as a fan of his enthusiasm and the Godzilla films he is basing this concept on. And I agree with the sentiment Hack and Slash's success is a bit baffling. Autonomous too, I have no interest in building bots from scrap metal, swear that's been done before. Space Base looks rad though.
I pulled the numbers into a spreadsheet a littler while ago. The top 8 have a nice slope, then there is a cliff and the data gets pretty flat. My guess is that people wanting a game not in the top 4 didn't vote for the top 4 but voted for as many of the losing ones as they wanted. I can't get all the names to show up in a saved image, but Brad's game is #6.
The only game I'm really interested in is Autonomous. Buildable robots and a Tron-like '80s-sci-fi aesthetic? Sign me the fuck up. I'll be so upset if we don't at least get a prototype build of that game. It's pretty much the sole reason I donated.
The voting period is finished, and the winners are as follows: Brandon Dillon (Hack n' Slash), JP LeBreton (Spacebase DF-9), Andy Wood (The White Birch), and Lee Petty (Autonomous).
I had been interested in all of those, but they weren't my top picks...although I knew there was no chance my top pick of Flock would make it, it was a bit of an odd ball, but I thought it sounded really interesting.
