Unless you’ve been living in a closet lately, you’ve probably noticed a lot of excitement focused on Kickstarter. Kickstarter, the crowd-funding resource, is being used to fund all kinds of cool games for development. Often, these are games of the quirky variety that might be considered too unusual for a regular publisher to take a risk on. Today we’re drawing your attentions toward a promising Kickstarter done by some friends of Tap: Map Monsters.
The premise: the world is overrun by monsters. The monsters are visible through your location-based device. Travel through the real world, find monsters there, and trap them. So you don’t have to be a constant world traveler to enjoy the game, you can bookmark the most lucrative hunting sites for later exploration. The team’s video explains it best:
The game is being designed and developed by industry vets, including, as you can see from the video, Magic: the Gathering designer Richard Garfield. The Kickstarter is running until the end of the week and is asking for a fairly modest amount to get the game completed, since it’s already got a solid working prototype. Check it out!
