After Reset is an old school open-world RPG in the style of the first two Fallout games – in fact, its developers describe it as filling the gap left by the cancellation of the project codenamed Van Buren, which would have been Fallout 3. The project was passed through Steam Greenlight in five days and has 15,000 Facebook fans, so it’s clearly got some traction, and indie studio Black Cloud is hoping to capitalise on that with a $900,000 crowdfunding campaign. Check out the rewards and stretch goals on Kickstarter. Trailer and pitch video through the break.

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.
