If you have fond memories of the Blade Runner adventure game released for PC by Westwood back in 1997 then you might want to sit up and take notice of Ama’s Lullaby. It is a point & click adventure featuring a command-line based hacking game by solo developer, Mercy Ground Creations. The game is currently in the final hours of its Kickstarter campaign and with only three days to go time is running out to become a backer.

Ama’s Lullaby will cast players in the role of Ama, a teenager living on a colony that was constructed for humanity on another planet using machines. The purpose of the colony was to safeguard humanity after the announcement that an asteroid is on a potential collision course with Earth. However, there is obviously more to the story than this and players will help Ama uncover what is really going on. This will be done via traditional point-and-click adventure game methods as players guide Ama around the colony to interact with the human and non-human inhabitants. Mercy Ground Creations also promises that you’ll get to make decisions that can impact the course of events and that all your actions will have consequences. This also comes into play with the hacking feature, where the information and confidential data that you are able to access can potentially be used to blackmail people.

Besides the great looking cyberpunk environments of the game we are looking forward to seeing the dialog system of Ama’s Lullaby in action. According to the developer, you’ll have to pick your questions carefully and anticipate the consequences as your choices are all examined by the system to determine how they influence the NPCs. It will also be interesting to see how the promise of NPCs who show different reactions from one game session to another looks in action. This can really boost the replay value of the game, which is something you’ll want to do thanks to the several possible endings that are promised.

Ama’s Lullaby definitely sounds like an ambitious project for a solo developer, but from what we have seen so far it has the potential to be great. Head on over to the Kickstarter page for more information about the game as well as the rewards, which includes a limited print artbook, game soundtrack, cyberpunk postcards, and limited Cyberpunk USB drive.

Currently powering its way to success on Kickstarter is Prismata from Lunarch Studios. It is a hybrid strategy title that fuses elements of collectible card games, tabletop strategy as well as elements of real-time strategy games. However, by focusing on easy to learn gameplay and fast paced matches the game aims to be more accessible than the genres from which it draws its inspiration. This doesn’t mean that the game is lacking in depth though as it has plenty of features that will appeal to players who love strategy titles.

Anyone that has spent their childhood pumping quarters into an arcade machine during the 80’s and early 90’s will be happy to hear about Zotrix. This game is based on the shooters from that era and features the usual one space pilot versus an entire alien armada formula that was so popular at the time. The roots of the game might be retro, but this doesn’t mean that it feels like it is stuck in the past.
