Pixel Noir - A Kickstarter Highlight

I would probably live longer if I didn't insist on pistol whipping everyone.

I am a sucker for Kickstarters as it feels like I am helping other people realize their dreams without selling out to a large corporation.  Now, many corporations are using/abusing similar services but I still think you can find cool and unique offerings especially if you love retro gaming.  Pixel Noir recently launched and is billed as "A JRPG-inspired detective game set against a film noir backdrop.  Think Earthbound meets Sin City." That premise coupled with a Noir 8-Bit soundtrack had me intrigued.  It is also comforting to see that the goal is reasonable (30k) and it quickly reached 55% of that goal after launch so I would say it has a strong chance at getting funded.  It is currently set to be released on PS4, PS Vita, PC, and Mac, but a stretch goal could get it to Xbox and it is the very first Stretch goal so odds are ever in your favor Xboxers.  

Whipping a slime monster looks immensely satisfying.

Check out the Kickstarter here to read more about the game, sample the soundtrack, or download a playable computer demo.  Or if this game excites you like it did me back the project.  I would recommend  the "Inside Man" level to get the soundtrack and Beta access.
