Subies : a “Roguelike” game for iOS.

SUBIES iOS/PC – “Attack The Depths”

I heartily recommend watching this video demo of a iPhone game. This may be the funniest video on all of Kickstarter.

“See, we relax sometimes because if shaking ship down hurts the fuel!”

Yes, of course it does.

Sadly, this is not a Kickstarter for a series of hilarious videos, they actually want us to buy this game!

Uh … yea … ok … wow.
This is like a carpenter telling you how excited he is about one day owning a hammer, because he doesn’t want to have to keep pounding the nails in with his forehead.

Wow, he totally filled in a government form and paid a $50 registration fee!

And to prove it, he showed us a photograph of his credit card!

Uh, dude, I can still make out the numbers.

FriendZone

Friendzone Tees

Sometimes, you’re friends with a girl for, like, a whole week, and she’s still not interested in sleeping with you!

I know! It’s like they don’t understand the only reason we’re friends with them is for sex!

Yea, that’ll do the trick.

Too bad his lady-friends aren’t interested in “Doing something”.

The Gamer Comedy that Rage-quits

Pwned! The Gamer Comedy that Gives
(AKA “Pwned! The Ultimate Geek Anthem Film”)

This man needs a mere $250,000 to film a Gamer Comedy. It’s a comedy film by gamers, for gamers!

It contains fresh new gags like this parody of the Star Wars opening scroll :

But this isn’t just a comedy, it also has an important message!

Oh boy. A parody of “gamer life” that also teaches us an important message about bullying.

When the internet didn’t immediately start throwing money at them for this obviously brilliant concept, they changed the name of their project from “The Ultimate Geek Anthem Film” to “The Gamer Comedy that Gives“, and explained that they would give 100% of their profits to charity, including …

When even this didn’t work, they did the only thing they could think of : RAGE-QUIT!

Don’t worry, they’ve relocated to IndieGoGo!
(By the way, that’s not a comb-over, his hair just does that.)

Lone Bobblehead Theory

Lee Harvey Bobblehead

Celebrate the assassination of one of the USA’s most beloved presidents with a whimsical bobblehead!

It makes me happy for humanity, that even on an election year, people weren’t crazy enough to back this project.

All that said, they did do a good job of capturing him in bobble form.

It’s the perfect conversation starter at the next militia meeting.

Book to Theme Park : Candlelight

Book to Theme Park Candlelight : A Science Fiction love story

Josh Kostelecky is a man with a plan.

It’s a bit complicated, but I’ve taken the liberty of illustrating it.

First you write three books. Then you Build a theater. Then you build a movie studio. Then you build a theme park. Then you ride the roller coaster all day long, because you've earned it, man. You've earned it.


So how’d that turn out?

CANdleholders.

CANdleholder “A creative way to add light to your life.”

If I may get philosophical for a moment, I’ve always thought of cans as not specifically candle-holders, but just “Holders”. You know, in general. I mean : They’re cans, so you can put stuff in them.


Ooo! Sounds classy already! Let’s see how they turned out.


Hmm… Well, I guess they have sort of a … “industrial” aesthetic going on?

How’d they do?

Oh. Ouch.

Project Luna : Marginally Legal Plushes

Moon Plush

These people are trying to raise $5,000 to manufacture plush toys in the shape of an adorable pony named Luna.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, but you’d be wrong! This isn’t a My Little Pony project at all!

See? This is a plush toy about a cat who turned into a pony! Completely innocent! It’s certainly a legally distinct, completely original character, right?

Why, I’ll bet the creators of this Kickstarter would be shocked to learn that Hasbro’s “Friendship is Magic“, by shear chance, has a very similar character, also named Luna!


Woa! What a coincidence!

(Incidentally, While Hasbro’s Princess Luna accessorizes with a black tiara, this Luna accessorizes with a … DJ headset? … Made of carbon-fiber? … For some reason?)




LATE BREAKING UPDATE : After I wrote this post, the creator of this Kickstarter responded to the obvious accusations that this was blatant intellectual property theft.
Click Here to Read it.
I didn’t highlight any parts of it, because the whole thing is just so hilarious and adorably child-like. It’s funny enough that they’re intentionally refusing to understand the concept of “derivative works”, which is generally understood to prohibit character rip-offs like this, but what I find really funny is the way they’re intentionally misspelling “Copyright” and “Trademark”. No doubt that is supposed to make some sort of point that can only be understood by the anti-copyright evangelists at ChillingEffects,com (The site they linked to “explain” copyright.).


LATER BREAKING UPDATE : Uh oh! One of the backers has cracked the code!
