Some gaming projects that could use your time & money
Hi everyone, I would like to point out some projects I've found that I believe are worthy causes- both for your attention and money.
The project below is on Kickstarter.com, which is a fundraising site for projects of all kinds- literature, games, books, music, movies, events, etc. How funding there works is that the project decides how much they would like to raise, what rewards they will offer for various donation amounts, and how long they think it will take to raise the funds. The project only gets the money pledged if they meet or exceed their requested amount by the end of the time period.
Zoop to the Future!
From the page about the project:
Zoop To The Future! is a new point-n-click adventure game based on the independent, animated web series, The Somewhat Comical Adventures of Prickley Pete! Inspired by classic Lucas Art's adventure games such as Monkey Island, Sam and Max, and Grim Fandango, Zoop To The Future! is full of laughs; great, mind-bending puzzles, and a style all its own.
The authors plan to make it available for every platform- mobile & desktop (including Linux).
I've talked back and forth with the authors a couple of times, and they were very responsive and happy to answer questions for me.
If you'd like to see the official game site (with a link to the web series mentioned above) it's: http://www.zooptothefuture.com/
The second project I would like to draw attention (and possibly money) to is OpenGameArt.org.
I'm pasting in their message below:
Thanks very much to everyone who read this far, and for taking a look at these projects!

There's also a couple comments from the head of the project there.
