The Death List for August 2015

The Death List for August 2015

My, how the time flies.  It is mid September already so let’s return to last month and recap all of the game testing news in the Death List for August 2015.  One thing that really stood out last month is just how many Kickstarters were launched and then subsequently cancelled.  I didn’t bother listing them below, but I just thought it was unusual.  Fortunately that wasn’t the case for all Kickstarters because Everspace and Aquanox were both successfully funded, and the Divinity: Original Sin 2 Kickstarter is ongoing and well into its stretch goals now.  Of course, there was interesting testing related news last month as well, such as the Gigantic beta firing up and the Dreadnought beta registration going live.  We also seemed wrote up a few new hands-on articles last month.  Check out the rest of the interesting news items from last month in the Death List for August 2015 below!
