Volgarr The Viking
I don't fund a lot of things on Kickstarter, but I'm taking a serious look at Volgarr the Viking. Looking like a loving homage to Rastan the Barbarian, Volgarr is a side scrolling beat-em-up bathed in 16-bit glory. The character animates beautifully and the team has been able to attach gear and other items that get removed when hit. As someone that is trying to limit the amount of animation they have to do, I admire their willingness to go that extra mile. Also, it's really nice to see a working prototype in a Kickstarter video. It really helps to build your confidence in a team and gauge their ability to accomplish their goals.
