If you love memes and you love those Apples to Apples clone style card games (think Cards Against Humanity etc) then you're in luck! This new card game takes prewritten text and matches it up with a host of popular meme pictures in a similar style. It's already met $166,108 of it's original $10,000 goal with 13 days to go so this product is obviously in high demand. Can't argue with cash.

Guys, remember Charlie the Unicorn? 



So far there have been four episodes released since the first one in 2005. The most recent was published in 2012. Now the creator of Charlie the Unicorn is hoping to make a spectacular, 30-minute long finale.

On a Kickstarter page created to fund this new project he promises:

It's going to be ridiculous, and musical, and extremely complicated to animate. Maybe not for Pixar, with their supercomputers and fur physics and blood pact with Yuroth, but complicated for me at least.

According to Know Your Meme, $52,000 of the $35,000 goal was funded in the first 24 hours. 

The project is currently funded at $70,575 with 27 days to go. While stretch goals weren't really something he considered, he did suggest that, "If this raises just an absurd amount of money I'll attempt to hire Aubrey Plaza to play every single character and release an Aubrey Plaza edition."

So it seems like we have that to look forward to.

The gameplay looks similar to 'Apples to Apples' or 'Cards Against Humanity'. Players start a comic and the judge picks the winner who had the best punchline. The base game will include 250 cards but they've added a list of tasks for fans to complete to help them meet a stretch goal that will add 30 more cards to every deck.



So far they have met $635,555 of their $10,000 goal. They've already included a 10 card booster pack to every reward and with 27 days to go, the extra stretch goal doesn't seem unrealistic.

It plays a lot like Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity, but more visual. After a round judge is selected, one card is played from the deck. Then the judge plays another card, and all other players submit a card to create the punchline. The judge selects their favorite, thereby completing the comic strip. A player wins when they successfully pick 3 winning punchlines.

Joking Hazard is being funded through a Kickstarter campaign, which is already well above its funding goal.

It's a sad day for crowdfunded games; Ant Simulator has been canceled for a particularly terrible reason. 

After a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2014, development of Eric Tereshinski's Ant Simulator game was underway under a company registered among his friends called ETeeski LLC. This weekend, Tereshinski resigned from his own company and canceled the game. Why? Because his "friends"/business partners had wasted the company's money on booze for "business meetings" and other less than professional expenses.

Tereshinski is not seeking legal action against his former friends because apparently,

...these guys covered their asses in the contract. They'll say the drinks were for business meetings, and they have the paperwork/minutes to prove they had meetings (even though I know they were bulls**t meetings). They went over the contract line by line with me and I reviewed the whole thing twice. I just didn't realize they had protected themselves, screwed me (like the fact that they listed themselves as consultants, so they aren't legally obligated to work on anything, but still have the rights to spend money ect.), and I had no idea what their plan was until it was too late.


A legal battle with them would likely be extremely expensive with a totally uncertain outcome for Tereshinski, so for the time being he's decided it isn't worth it, and is canceling the game and providing refunds to folks who preordered.

If you've been off the internet all summer, you might not know that the USA and Japan are having a giant robot fight... for reasons. Team America has been working on their bot, but they need our help. They've launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to raise funds to build a robot that'll "float like a butterfly and sting like a rhinoceros." Check it out
