The idea is to create a base game which is an arena fighter with 2-4 monsters. The real draw is that they are in talks to license several real universeses worth of monsters that will be sold as stand-alone games that then combine with each other. Possible licenses include things like Ultraman, Gamera, and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters.
Retro Game Crunch
Six small games across six months, with you getting one game per month after the project ends. Neat idea.
The Saga of Rex
The one I'm most excited about, only has 64 hours to go as of this writing. It has met and is about to hit double its initial goal, but it still has a long way to go to hit stretch goals to add another couple minutes of animation to the final short. Michel Gagne is an incredible mind, and the creature designs in this look amazing. Every frame of animation is going to be drawn by hand, frame-by-frame, and the fluidity of the animation
shows how amazing this approach can look. I really think you should back this.
