Public service announcement and Cassiopeia Drift

One of the things I want to make clear about this blog is that we write about indie games.

Shocking, I know.

But when I say we write about indie games, I mean that we write about them in all stages of development. This is all to say that if you have a project you're working on that you want featured, let us know. If you need help with some crowd-sourcing, let us know. thisindiegameblog was created to spread the indie love, and if that requires us helping draw attention to some projects in the works, then so be it.

That said, we won't be able to feature every project. But we'll certainly do our best!

Now that all that business talk is out of the way, let's talk about Cassiopeia Drift.

This project is currently being funded on Indiegogo. It's an MMO space adventure title based in a post-apolcalyptic society. Human societies, in this game, are completely decimated, and all humans are exiled from their own galaxy for mysterious reasons. Since they're exiled, they're forced to explore this new galaxy and adapt.

You have a choice of four different factions to play as, and game mechanics include building ships, commanding space stations, flying around space to your heart's content, and managing shops. It promises to provide a rich player atmosphere with a diverse and growing science fiction world.

As far as contributor incentives go, donating to this game will give you a variety of tiers. Some of these incentives include the ability to design races (at the $500 mark). At the $5,000 mark, you actually contribute to a large portion of game design. Have you ever wanted to gain valuable game dev experience? The Admiral of the Fleet tier could give you just that. If I had $5,000 to spare, I'd certainly do it!

Funding ends March 24th, so if this seems like a project that interests you, please throw them a few dollars and get some neat rewards along the way. If you want to find out more, check out this thread in the Crowd Funding Forum. There are lots of pictures and FAQ answers.
