One of the game's original creators, Greg Johnson, is seeking funding on Kickstarter to bring back beloved funky 90s game Toejam and Earl.

The new game will be reminiscent of the first Toejam and Earl, with "fixed isometric camera, 2D sprites, simple controls, and an emphasis on coop play."  Development is currently focused only on PC, though the team hopes to expand that to more platforms in the future.

Check out the Kickstarter here.

Shut up and take my credits!

Canadian LARP weaponry company Calimacil is Kickstarting epic foam lightsabers that both light up beautifully and are safe to whap your friends with! In addition to lighting up, their more advanced models utilize motion reactive sounds, so you won't even have to make your own noises.

The Kickstarter price for a basic light-up saber starts at $225 and heads upwards of $450 for one with sounds and multiple colors, but that's a pretty small price to pay for feeling like a real force user, right?

Last night's Sony conference at E3 announced Shenmue 3 was headed to Kickstarter.  At the time of this writing, the crowdfunding campaign has surpassed its $2 million goal, and has hit $2,414,146.  If you find that baffling, consider this: one $10,000 backer is going to receive the "original jacket worn by Masaya Matsukaze for all of the Shenmue press events 14 years ago" plus a special video message from Yu Suzuki.
