They promise you that game you’ve always wanted: Metal Gear Fantasy Suiko-Turismo Gaiden, with seemingly unlimited creative control, alongside mouth-watering exclusive merchandise. Unfortunately, the reality is often the exact opposite.
Due to the large number of questionable, if not outright dodgy, projects floating around Kickstarter and other crowdfunding sites these days, we here at Power Up Gaming feel inclined to separate the wheat from the chaff for you. Which games are worth your investment, which games don’t deserve your patronage, and which games are worth your ridicule? We hope to take a somewhat regular look at what’s rolling around and report in an entirely unprofessional manner back to you, starting today!"
