Steampunk Crowdfunding Aug/Sept Edition
It’s official, summer is ending. I was out for a walk with my little canine buddy, Gadget, and we saw a yellow leaf drift from a tree and glide oh-so-poetically to the street. Perhaps the Kickstarter community is preparing for hibernation (or more likely, the first days of school) so there are only two projects to showcase this time around.
Here’s What’s Going on Right Now
A Foretold Affair, Ends Sept. 16
A Foretold Affair is a steampunk-fantasy Visual Novel being developed by GB Patch Games. The project features one long journey with variations based on the player’s choices.
Buffalo Seer is an eccentric Abnormal who wants nothing more than to use the magic ability within them: future seeing. However, even within their society where everyone has a special power, future seeing is considered dangerous and advised against.
Unable to be swayed, Seer finally gains permission to look into their own future, only to receive an unbelievable revelation. Not only have they left Abnormal society, they’re married to someone they’ve never met before. With visions of happiness in their mind, Seer leaves everything behind and ventures to the part of the land fraction where those without magic live: Normal society. Seer is going to convince this stranger that they are meant to be together no matter what it takes, even if it means tagging along on an adventure.
In only a few days Seer will learn just how far away that pleasant future is.

Chronicles of Detective Dilan Strife: Sociopaths can be Geniuses too
Set in a chaotic fantasy world where two cities are at war while the largest, and most industrially strong city, Therant, is maintaining a neutral presence in the lands of Charmarion. You will be submerged into a dank universe where technology and knighthood clash to make ends meet. One man’s way of life is going to change the world they live in drastically.
Dilan Strife, an ex soldier for Dekon’s Royal Shield, is a well known private detective for Grim Findings Inc. where he is often sought out to solve mysterious murders. His boss, John Grim, is a peculiar fellow that finds the oddest of jobs, and this new mystery for Dilan is going to be one of his toughest ones to date…
My Favorite Reward: For just one measly dollar you get a PDF of the finished book! (But remember, you can always pledge more at any reward level, so if you want to support the project but don’t need the extra rewards you can do that, too!)
