The adjectives “innovative” and “unique” are found all over Kickstarter, let alone in the marketing campaigns of mainstream video games.

Obey is a multiplayer tower-defense game that focuses on coercion rather than gunplay. Empyrion: Galactic Survival challenges you to escape a barren planet by mastering a mixture of tower-defense and crafting gameplay. Finally, Weather Zen pits you against one of mankinds greatest threats: unpredictable weather.
