Aaaand after reading about Doug TenPatel's views on homosexuality, I think I'll pass on giving the guy any money to make his game.

Yeah, I don't always agree with his politics, but I can't stop enjoying his art.

New Mike Nelson Video for Armikrog!
« Reply #8 on: June 20, 2013, 02:33:41 AM »
Mike just released a Q&A video on his involvement in the Armikrog game!
"There's a lot of nudity on this thing. I don't know why, but they just said it was mandatory."

Too bad Doug TenNapel is a gigantic homophobe and xenophobe. I love Mike Nelson, but I can't recommend anyone give money to a person like this, especially after how he treated people on Steam's Greenlight.

First off, Almighty dF, Doug is fine being with people who are different or believe differently from him.  That's why his company is backing Double Fine's Massive Chalice, which incorporates gay marriage.  Double Fine's Tim Schafer is also endorsing Armikrog.
Second, there's nothing political in the game.  We're told all the time that movie stars' politics should be considered separately from their work, so why not with video game designers?
Third, Doug isn't getting paid any of the money anyway.  All of it is going into production, so all we're supporting is the game:

I've said it before, I'm not making a dime on this game, but a whole lot of other good people will if it gets funded. NONE of the actual content in Armikrog is political or advocating any divisive views, and because I'm not getting paid (and hardly anyone is getting paid on this low of a budget) I don't see how any donations can be sent anywhere. It's an internet meme that funding some project is an endorsement of views, and both the team and our audience are full of a diversity of views and opinions, some that you find repulsive, would be held dear by someone else.

And finally, Mike Nelson believes this is a project worth backing, and so do I!

Look how happy Mike is to be involved in such a kickass project!  Wave hi to the camera, Mike!

Peel off the duct tape to watch the clip.

I went for the $125 level. I love Terry Taylor's music. And I prefer physical media.  :)

New Armikrog Kickstarter Add-Ons: Hand-Painted Character Portraits!
« Reply #13 on: June 20, 2013, 03:42:05 PM »
I went for the $125 level. I love Terry Taylor's music. And I prefer physical media.  :)

Awesome, man!  Thanks for the help!
Speaking of physical media, they just added a bunch of new Add-On items: actual hand-painted character portraits by Doug TenNapel!  Each one painted and signed to order!

$100 per Small Portrait (8.5" x 11")
$200 per Large Portrait (11" x 17")




Doug says that each portrait will be slightly different, with various poses or even sepia ink instead of black.  ("If I end up doing 200 of these, the freedom to make them how I love to draw them is the key to sanity.")  Here's a pic of all of the commissions Doug made for his Sketchbook Archives.  You'll get a similar quality and look with your add-on:

The update about Nintendo contacting them about a possible Wii U port is awesome! I hope that's able to happen since I would rather play it on a big screen
