Heartwarming Kickstarter raises $22K to make clothes for people with Down syndrome 

Downs Designs produces jeans, capri pants and shirts for individuals with Down syndrome, a genetic disorder that leaves patients with developmental delays and intellectual disability. Patients with Down syndrome are physically built differently than other people, and as a result often lack access to well-fitting clothes, furthering negative perceptions of people who have the disorder and increasing the condition’s social stigma.

Here’s some incredible and absolutely beautiful concept art and character design from URBANCE - which is now looking for backing on Kickstarter.

"In a post-modern city torn by street violence, sex is prohibited because of a deadly genetical virus. Men and women have grown apart, hating each other until two young rebels, disowned by their own gangs, are leading the fight to live their love freely."

In the crumbling inner city, sex kills. The urban landscape is split in two — men on one side, women on the other— opposing each other. COEVO seems to be the only hope: a government medical treatment developed to cure every single boy and girl except that those wearables haven’t produced the expected results yet…

Born among this lost generation of frustrated gangs, Kenzell and Lesya live each day as their last, defying anyone who stands in the way of their union. Like modern avatars of Romeo and Juliet, they will have to choose between love or their kind, Passion VS Reason, Deadly Eves VS Neo Blasterz… In their flamboyant relationship lies the premises of a revolution against the authorities, the vicious Mediators and their separatist laws. Rebels can change the world…

I’ve promoted quite a few Kickstarter’s on here and by far this is the one that excites me the most. More than anything the animation industry needs something like Urbance to come in and break down it’s walls; it’s fresh, diverse, incredibly crafted and I think, it’ll be absolutely ground breaking!

Head on over to the Urbance Kickstarter page and send them some love.

Our director Ben Harrison has been working on something pretty remarkable: a feature documentary on two men who want to build an elevator into space. It’s a pretty amazing story, and Ben’s been flying around the country shooting it for the last year. They’re calling it “Shoot the Moon.”

They’ve shot about 75% of the film already. Now, his team wants to raise $37,000 to create miniature-based special effects for the film. No CGI here - they want to do it old-school. A pretty cool goal if you ask me.

You can help complete the project and make this amazing dream come to life. Support the project here, and you can get really cool thank-you gifts, like posters, patches, even moon globe. And of course screening tickets and downloads of the finished film.

I’m really excited about this project, and if you’re a PTO fan, you know about Ben’s talent. So kick in a few bucks!


Heya, folks. Things are chugging along down the final stretch for Costume Fairy Adventures: the final section of the GM’s chapter has been handed off for the first phase of post-layout proofing, which means we’re this close to having the final text for all of the core rules locked in. Once we’ve got that sorted, we’ll be turning our full focus onto the Plugins (optional rules) chapter, with an aim toward having the bulk of it in layout by next weekend.

Here’s where we’re at now:

Core Rulebook

Written: 97%
Edited: 92%
Laid Out: 85%
Illustrated: 56%

Core Costume Deck

Written: 79%
Laid Out: 70%
Illustrated: 100%

Finally, we’ve got the promised previews from the remaining yet-to-be-seen portion of the Core Costume Deck: one for the season, one because you asked, and one just because.

That’s all for now!

We’re here! It’s Day 29! We’re absolutely, finally, and wholly here!

Project Nexus 2 appears to be fully funded, but we’re still trying to fight through the stretch goals and include as MANY GAME MODES AS POSSIBLE.

If you haven’t backed the project yet, then now is the time.

If you haven’t told everyone you know and forced them to help the project just like you did, then now is the time.

If you think there’s more you can do, despite all the wonderful help you have given us already, then now is the time.

We’re doing this game. It’s happening. Krinkels and Swain are ready to go. Madness is ready to travel the route of Super Meat Boy, and FTL, and Hotline Miami, and every other small indie concept that outgrew its confines and went on to rock the gaming world.

That’s us. No, not Team Madness. ALL of us. You and we. The whole collective. None of us did this alone.

See you peeps on the other side, at the victory line.
