The game developer’s attempt to raise $400,000 to fund a point-and-click adventure game, using popular fundraising website Kickstarter has exploded in a way I think no one was expecting. Double Fine made the original goal much sooner than expected: about 8 hours after the site first launched.Twelve days after the February 8th launch, they’ve hit more than two million. In fact, as of me writing this article (10:13 in the morning) they’ve got $2,004,987. The different reward levels, which range from $15 (a free copy of the game and access to all discussion boards and the video series) to $10,000, which includes all previous rewards, plus a tour of the offices and lunch with Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert. There are actually higher reward levels listed on Double Fine’s main site, if $10,000 isn’t enough for you.

It will also be available in … [Read more...] about Double Fine’s Kickstarter Project Has Now Raised Over 2 Million Dollars

You probably think you know how to fight Medusa - with a barge pole and a pair of sunglasses - but Dota 2 renders her a little differently. And if you’ve Dota 2 on Steam, she’s probably already sitting somewhere on your hard drive - so you’d better pay attention. Dota’s Medusa traded beauty for terror, and that terror is reflected in her abilities. Her ultimate is Stone Gaze which, as you might imagine, slowly turns enemies within squinting distance into the grey stuff. What that means in practical terms is slowed speed in all properties, the stripping of status buffs and damage to all illusions and summoned creatures. When using offensive ability Split Shot, Medusa splits her ranged attack into five arrows. They’ll confer reduced damage and lose their extra attack effects, but with the clear payoff of hits on multiple targets. Mystic Snake jumps from target to target, taking mana and dealing damage in increasing amounts with each leap. Once the snake has … [Read more...] about Dota 2 patch introduces Medusa the Gorgon and the Dark Chest
LOS ANGELES--At the 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo, Electronic Arts had a robust lineup of software to show off. The company unveiled a deal through its EA Partners program to publish APB, the oft-delayed online crime actioner that has been referred to as the "Grand Theft Auto MMOG"--even though it isn't a traditional massively multiplayer game. (Its games are limited to 100 simultaneous players.) Also on tap were The Saboteur, Crysis 2, BioWare's MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic, and Double Fine's Brutal Legend--which was promptly slapped with a lawsuit from former publisher Activision. (The suit has since been resolved, and the game shipped last October.) This year, it's unclear what EA will be showing off. A strong contender is EA Sports MMA, EA Sports' first foray into the mixed martial arts category, which was revealed last year. Also likely are the heavily hinted at Dragon Age 2 and Mass Effect 3, which BioWare has already confirmed in a FAQ on its Web site. The … [Read more...] about Dead Space 2, Bulletstorm, EA MMA dated at EA press event
