Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, you may have noticed the number of stories slowing down here. Time moves on, but I'll always keep posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age.
Since I don't have the time or content for a Patreon or YT channel, please consider clicking an ad to help reach my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

Retro adventure Station goes live on Kickstarter

Already backed this, and so should you if you have fond memories of 16-bit adventures. Set deep in the Arctic Ocean, not far from the North Pole, a survey crew is hard at work in the quest for resources. The work is hard and dangerous, and the people who do it have become hard and dangerous themselves.

Some of the crewmembers are working off parole contracts. Others are in search for some easy money and will do anything to make a buck. The rest just have nothing to lose. And all the while the management of ARC is mired in an internecine power struggle. During this routine survey mission a bizarre event takes place that causes the crewmembers to go insane and start killing each other.... yay! Anyone remember Sphere? Sounds like that but with roughnecks instead of scientists.

The game has a Vita stretch goal of $55K Canadian (around £30,000) so seems very reasonable. Check out the Kickstarter page, the game's page here, and other Vita crowdfunding efforts here.
