I'm kinda sad Armikrog is dipping like it has been, I was really hoping there would be more support, but I guess the point 'n click adventure genre isn't the most promising thing on the planet, especially when it needs almost 1 million dollars to fund, I totally understand why the cost is higher than your average game, but I guess maybe it's not totally practical in terms of price-wiseness. The guys on the project are staying hopeful, so I will too, but they're gonna have to pull some crazy stunts to reach their goal with only a week left. I'm not sure I'm too into the whole "add-on" system they have going on in addition to reward tiers, is that a common thing used with kickstarter projects or was that mostly their idea?
As far as Dark Matter goes... I'm not sure I dig it. I wasn't a fan of Other M by a longshot either, (the action was average aside from stupid insta-kills that came out of nowhere but everything else was mediocre) still though, Dark Matter looks to be leaning more towards bland and slow to me. I look at it and I'd rather pick up GBA Metroid games, because they play a lot more smoothly and satisfyingly than this looks to.
