You should check out Kickstart Ventures formed by the most ardent fans and commenters on adventure games on Kickstarter and Indiegogo:

http://www.kickstartadventure.com

They inform us of all adventure games on these two websites. I just discovered these two adventures and pledged, but they will fail. I wondered if I should pledge but if everyone thought like that, no one would pledge for sure:


Deeply embedded in H.P. Lovecraft's mythology, U55 – END OF THE LINE is an innovative horror game set in modern-day Berlin

Shades of Sanity - Psychological Horror Game like Sanitarium

I am a fan of KIckstart Ventures on FaceBook so I have been following them for awhile.

I did not mention U55 here because it is an action adventure by there own admission: " U55 – END OF THE LINE is a single-player, first-person action-adventure game inspired by classic horror games such as Amnesia, Dead Space and Silent Hill."

I announced Shades of Sanity here.

Could they have deleted the word action? I can't find it on the whole U55 Kickstarter page. At any rate we are only armed with a smartphone, no guns, and it looks good.

This "first person adventure" term they have started to use is interesting, I think it means full 3D, not iso or simulated 2D whilst in 3D? Or something like that. I think if it had been successful I would have given U55 a try, without feeling I was going to the dark side.

For Shades of Sanity, Ana, you're right, I even remember now reading your entry at the time.

rmt, I got it from the first description on their webpage here.

And on the Greenlight section Here it is also listed as an action adventure.
