The Rise of Mooncrest Demo

The Rise of Mooncrest demo is now available from Knightmayor, so give this tactical RPG a try ahead of the incoming Kickstarter campaign! Somewhere along the way I signed up for the emailing list of KnightMayor, an indie game development studio in Austin, Texas. At least, I guess so since I have been getting emails […]

Try out the Iron Tides demo and consider supporting the Kickstarter of this viking-based rogue-lite strategy game from Crash Wave Games! This week Death by Beta received a couple of emails about the Iron Tides Kickstarter that is in its final week (four days left as I write this). More importantly, it seems that there […]

SHODAN is returning! Check out the System Shock demo and Kickstarter to see how this remake of the classic sci-fi horror game is shaping up!

Defenders of Naxia Demo and Kickstarter

Check out the pre-alpha Defenders of Naxia demo that is currently available as part of the game’s Kickstarter campaign! We don’t really cover crowdfunding campaigns much these days, although I do continue to peruse Kickstarter on occasion to look for campaigns that also include a game demo to try out. Case in point is the […]

InSomnia Kickstarter and Demo

Well here is some news that I meant to post about a couple of weeks ago but it completely slipped my mind. Better late than never I suppose. If you happen to recall, almost two years ago I mentioned the InSomnia Kickstarter and its technical demo. I actually liked the look of the game and […]

GODHOOD Alpha and Kickstarter

A couple of days ago, DBB received an email from GekidoRising asking if we would be so kind mention his in-development indie game, GODHOOD, to all of you. Well, you know our policy of “ask and ye shall receive” and in this case it is rather apropos since the GODHOOD alpha is freely available to […]

The Wild Eight Kickstarter and Pre-Alpha Demo

I have been keeping my eye on The Wild Eight Kickstarter campaign lately because it sounds like a very interesting survival game premise (which is impressive considering the glut of survival games that have appeared over the past few years). This week it got even more interesting with the release of a pre-alpha demo of […]

Sebastian Frank Indiegogo

About one and a half months ago we told you about the Sebastian Frank: The Beer Hall Putsch, a new point’n’click adventure game from the good Portuguese folks over at Sebastian Frank Games (which I previously called Wittyplot…hopefully I got it correct this time).  At that time we were talking about the demo of the […]

The Tower Kickstarter

Time for our first report on a Kickstarter campaign in 2016, and I am happy that it happens to be about the CONSORTIUM: The Tower Kickstarter.  I am happy not only because The Tower looks quite intriguing but also because this Kickstarter is from Interdimensional Games Inc. (iDGi) who just happens to be a group […]

Legends of Callasia Hands-on, Demo, and Kickstarter

Back in the middle of this past summer we told you about the Legends of Fire and Steel Kickstarter from Boomzap Entertainment that was cancelled before the end of the campaign.  As it turns out, the game was down but not out, because once again Monika Guballa from Boomzap emailed us last week to tell […]

Labyrinth Kickstarter and Hands-on (time sensitive!)

Over this past weekend, Wayne Karo from Free Range Games sent us an email to tell us about the Labyrinth Kickstarter, which is now entering its final two days.  It sounds like one of our regular readers pledged to support Labyrinth and during the campaign suggested to Free Range Games that they should ask us […]

Zems Kickstarter (and alpha)

It would seem that Impulse Ltd. is pulling out all of the stops at once when it comes to their new online card game, Zems.  What with launching their open alpha test a few days ago and then the Zems Kickstarter going live yesterday, it feels like all Zems all the time! If you recall, […]

Demetrios Demo

A couple of days ago DBB received a message via our Twitter account from Breton Fabrice, the one man show behind the Demetrios Kickstarter that is currently underway.  Monsieur Fabrice asked us to check out the Kickstarter and to see if we would mind telling everyone about it considering that there is a Demetrios demo […]
