Bloom: Memories, a gorgeous-looking 2D action adventure RPG, is looking to raise $40,000 on Kickstarter. Pitting itself as a little bit different from other games, it “moves away from the cliche of violence and domination”, and will permit players to use stealth, strategy and diplomacy to avoid combat completely if they so choose. An interesting concept – and you can try a PC demo for yourself. Check out the trailer and pitch video through the break, and throw it a vote on Steam Greenlight if it catches your fancy, although the developer would probably also like a pledge and is offering various rewards and stretch goals to tempt you.

G3 Studios’ Deathfire: Ruins of Nethermore is an classic first person dungeoneering RPG in the vein of Wizardry or the Legend of Grimrock on Kickstarter.

However it’s also the latest in a troubling Kickstarter trend: over half of this new IP’s Kickstarter page is dedicated to backer rewards and merch. It has 30 different tiers to back the game with.

SCALE is one of those really interesting Kickstarter campaigns that come along a little too often for the health of my wallet. It’s a “first person reality manipulation game that reimagines exploration with a unique resizing mechanic.” If you’re not sure what that means, the game gives you a device that can make any item any size.
