Machine of Death, the science fiction anthology that pissed off Glenn Beck, is back in the form of a macabre card game, and you can help fund the production. If you prefer your games grounded in science, there’s also a chemistry-themed strategy game, and the clock is ticking on sending in your pledge. Plus, a bit on funding that isn’t crowdfunding—bid on art by Pixar artists to fund their independently produced short film.
Compounded: Better Gaming Through Chemistry: If tabletop games have taught us anything, it’s that people will learn and apply massive amounts of information when victory is at stake. Compounded is a strategy game that forces players to apply real chemistry. Here’s the pitch:
Compounded is a game about building chemical compounds through careful management of elements, a fair bit of social play and trading, and just a bit of luck. InCompounded, players take on the roles of lab managers, hastily competing to complete the most compounds before they are completed by others – or destroyed in an explosion. Some compounds are flammable and will grow more and more volatile over time; take too long to gather the necessary elements for those compounds and a lot of hard work will soon be scattered across the lab.
For a $42 pledge, you can get a copy of the game. There’s less than half a day left on this campaign, so if you want to throw your money their way, do it now.
