Wat.

Gaiman rules.

Huh

Could be interesting, even though I already don't like the artwork.

Asking for money before there is a game even? Oh, didn't see that one coming.

I love Gaiman. I love vidya games. Therefore, this is good.

Posted by AMyggen

Gaiman is the fucking man, so I'm looking forward to this. He's already written short stories, novels, comics and is writing the pilot for the HBO adaptation of American Gods. No reason he can't write a game too!

Ditto.

Neil Gaiman has the best voice.

Edited by Willtron

Those character models are fucking terrifying.

But, I'm intrigued, despite the kinda gross schilling. Neil Gaiman's a pretty rad dude, and I've liked The Odd Gentlemen games—admittedly some only in theory.

Can I get Neil Gaiman to narrate my life?

Edited by JesterPC238

Excellent! Fantastic! Wonderful! Gaiman is, in my mind, one of the greatest storytellers of his generation, and I would be happy to play a game he has had any part in.

I think I found @mattyftm new profile pic.

Just a bit more of a crevice down the middle and add some wrinkles and your done.

This is interesting that they are raising funds - but doing so directly.

Not using Kickstarter. I wonder if they assume Gaiman is such a social media powerhouse that they don't need an intermediate to help them raise money, and therefore, get a cut.

As we know, Amanda Palmer, Gaiman's wife, recently ran a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign:

I wonder if something soured him on the process. Who knows. The dude owns Twitter though - so they will be fine.

One of my favorite authors is heading into games? Not much more can be said besides "I'm in."

Though I think the game should've been called Neil Gamin'.

But, that maybe speaks to why I'm not an author.

That's crazy. I just finished American Gods last week. I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't read it.

Dude looks like old Patrick.

This seems genuine in an endearing way, though I'm sure it'll be successful.

Yes a great book and he's a very good writer of strange worlds just below the surface.

Also he wrote the Douglas Adams/HHGTTG companion book 'Don't Panic'.

Gaiman is god.

I'm in.....what, I'm easy to please :(

Posted by EvilNiGHTS

Damn. I was hoping for a third-person cover shooter based on 1602.

Posted by SaintOfKillers

Sandman is my favorite comic and I love most of Gaiman's work so i'm 100% in.

Edited by DigTheDoug

Oh man, I LOVE Neil Gaiman. Just finished his new book and re-read American Gods. What a book that is...

Also, it sounds like Beetlejuice: The Game...which is not an inherently bad thing.

Day 1 purchase.

Posted by Gordo789

Long time Neil Gaiman fan here, I'll check this out probably, but my expectations are always pretty low when non-game types decide they want to get into making video games.

Posted by Adrian79

The only Gaiman I've read is Good Omens. Really enjoyed that but what would bigger fans of his recommend?

Posted by Brad3000

So it's The Haunting Starring Poulterguy?

Edited by Lenny

I ordered this without even watching the whole video, I have a lot of faith in Neil Gaiman. My damn profile pic on this site is The Sandman for god sake.

Edited by bunnymud

Edit: forget what I said earlier. No way that can happen. This kinda sounds like Tecmo's Deception or whatever it was called. Plus, he needs to learn to read a TelePrompter better. Mebby the PotUS could help him with that.

Posted by SilentPredator

Just finished reading Neverwhere again today. The picture of him on the back cover versus his appearance in this video made it really hit home that dude is starting to get old. Looking forward to it, because at the very least the writing will be fantastic.

Edited by lazlazer

I heard there was an American Gods show in production? If this works out then, I hope he makes another game as well based off of that story.

Edited by Miketakon

Deadly Shadows?

Edited by Victor018

Loved P.B. Winterbottom, looking forward to this!

Posted by Spiritof

Neil Gaiman could make the idea of eating babies sound appealing.

Posted by gaminghooligan

He gave me Sandman, I would read a turd if he wrote a story on it.

Posted by BluPotato

Neil should get himself with Telltale, they both know and love to tell a tale. But I'm optimistically curious.

Edited by DeviTiffany

It sounds like The Haunting starring Poulterguy. I loved that game as a kid, if that's just a HD version of that then I'm on board.

Yeah. He has his wife who knows Kickstarter in and out she even talks to the founders of kickstarter. So Amanda is well known to them too. So Gaiman has his own reasons maybe because of Amandas knowledge of Crowdfunding has pushed him in this direction, since she has crowdfunded her entire career.

He has his reasons.

Ps. I was one of the folks that funded Amanda's Kickstarter when it was just $2000 raised. Since I am an Amanda Palmer fan and Dresden Doll fan since 2006. Its been a crazy ride following Amanda from Dresden Doll, Debut, hatred of her label onto kickstarting another awsome album and watching her recent shows plus her letter to the Daily mail song.

This is really, really exciting. Love Neil Gaiman.

American Gods. American Gods. American Gods!

Anansi Boys is quite good as well, but everyone I've known who has read American Gods has agreed that it's a damn masterpiece.

Posted by mostman

@adrian79: Neverwhere. American Gods, Stardust. And, of course, Sandman.

Posted by nick_verissimo

I'd rather this be a dinner with Niel Gaiman simulator. Sounds like infinitely more interesting game than this.

Posted by BaconGames

Regardless of how the game will turn out, I think it will be super cool for someone who's worked so much in the world of literature to see how games work and work from the inside no less. I'm sure as a writer it would be simultaneously exciting and a wake up call when it comes to approaching writing games for the first time.

The characters, for lack of a better term, look Double-Finey but I trust the devs to clean it up before release. I kinda hope this is a success because I think the industry could use someone like Gaiman who has a ton of respect in the writing world to report back and say what game writing is like for people in both industries.

I'm sure plenty of book nerds who work in the games press are flipping out because they possibly have the chance to meet Neil Gaiman.

Where do I sign?

Posted by bmarie82

a Neil Gaiman story inspired by Arsenic and Old Lace you say? And where do I deposit my money?
