zombie playground, a new game being funded through kickstarter
from the intro paragraph:Zombie Playground is an online, team based, action arena game with RPG elements. Gameplay will be deep, challenging, and rewarding. The game combines childhood nostalgia with horrific monsters, visceral combat, and a unique atmosphere straight out a child’s nightmares. We do want to make it very clear: this is not a game for kids!
this is the game i’ve been waiting my entire life for
“Goonies + Attack the Block + Walking Dead = Zombie Playground”
Wow cool! I’d totally play it.

Holy fuck I didn’t even know this was going on until I saw this post.
…Fuck they’re out of the plushies >_< Oh well gonna go for the $80 level and pray that whatpumpkin offers the plushes in their shop eventually.
to the people wondering about our generous $10k backer
THIS IS ACTUALLY REALLY SWEET BLESS HIS HEART
this is actually pretty cool
that is the coolest dude
not sure how a comic about all your favorite characters DYING can help brighten your day, but ok
seriously though, this guy rules
GOT ME A SNOUTPAK. FUCK. YES.
Oh my god I was orignally gonna do the $405 level with all the fucking packs just to get one and probably bankrupt myself
But now. I GOT A FUCKING SNOUTPAK. YEAH.
So I got my homestuck kickstarter swag yesterday (snoutpak!!) and couldn’t decide what to do with the stickers. I decided I would christen my new sewing machine with Kanaya as its patron. Also her expression will probably match mine whenever I/it inevitably fucks up something.
Hoping to give new meaning to the term “natural light,” a small group of biotechnology hobbyists and entrepreneurs has started a project to develop plants that glow, potentially leading the way for trees that can replace electric streetlamps and potted flowers luminous enough to read by.
The project, which will use a sophisticated form of genetic engineering called synthetic biology, is attracting attention not only for its audacious goal, but for how it is being carried out.
Rather than being the work of a corporation or an academic laboratory, it will be done by a small group of hobbyist scientists in one of the growing number of communal laboratories springing up around the nation as biotechnology becomes cheap enough to give rise to a do-it-yourself movement.
The project is also being financed in a D.I.Y. sort of way: It has attracted more than $250,000 in pledges from about 4,500 donors in about two weeks on the Web site Kickstarter. (via A Dream of Glowing Trees Is Assailed for Gene-Tinkering - NYTimes.com)
Reblogged before, but worth an update: These guys got more than funded, with still 28 days to go. Not bad for a DIY biotech lab.
Oh science, how did you know I wanted to turn my apartment into Pandora?
