I don’t pimp many Kickstarters, so when I do it tends to be something special…
…and something with its creative heart on its bloodstained sleeve!
Meet AFTERLAND. Magic the Gathering meets Tim Burton concept art? I’m IN.
From their fundraising site:
“Afterland is a unique, free-to-play mobile card game in development about a carnival of magical misfits searching for their lost souls in the afterlife. The game will first launch on iOS in the late summer of 2013, followed by an Android launch in early fall.
Cards are hand-painted by artists Megan Majewski and Elin Jonsson, whose style has been described as Tim-Burtonesque with a female twist. Gameplay is an exciting fusion between a Japanese style collectible card game (CCG) and a social turn-based game like Draw Something.
We’ve spent the last year creating this wonderfully dark and quirky world while distilling our gameplay. We’re nearing the end of our prototype phase and starting towards a production release, and this is where we turn to Kickstarter.
We have an inspired vision for Afterland that we would love to achieve through the help of the Kickstarter community. A dynamic soundtrack, classical animations, and progressive character narratives will make our characters dance and give our carnival a pulse.”
Kromlauer Park is a gothic style, 200-acre country park in the municipality of Kromlau in the Görlitz Gablenzgasse district in Germany. An incredible attraction of the park is the Rakotzbrücke, more popularly known as Devil’s Bridge.
The impressive arch bridge was built around 1860. During its construction, other peculiar rock formations were built on the lake and in the park. Devil’s Bridge is no longer open to the public to ensure its preservation. A unique feature of the bridge is that its reflection on the water’s surface creates a flawless circle, regardless of which side is being viewed.
