World of Wander - Kickstarter

Hi there my tens of readers! 

I'm back again to talk about a game/project on Kickstarter that has caught my eye, and this one is called Worlds of Wander!

Now, Worlds of Wander is a game making game (?) that lets you create and play 2D platform games in an intuitive way on all major platforms (tablets, Windows, Mac, and ubuntu) so you can create and play where ever you want! You can also share your creations with the community and play other users games to boot!

The project is being created by Tom Hall's Pieces of Fun based out of San Francisco, CA.

You might be asking yourself who this Tom Hall guy is, and that's okay. I mean, he's only been a successful part of the game industry for 21 years with such games under his belt as the Commander Keen series, Wolfenstein 3D, Spear of Destiny, DOOM, Rise of the Triad and Anachronox, and even more titles that brings his total to nearly 50(!) games! So yeah, he knows a lil somethin somethin about making games.

I grew up playing Tom Hall's games and I'm not blowing smoke here, but those games and the beautiful experiences I had with them are some of the key inspirations for me wanting to get into game development. Included with Worlds of Wander is Tom's spiritual successor to Commander Keen - Secret Spaceship Club!

So yeah, if you want to make some fun games and play fun games, give it a look see and consider giving Worlds of Wander a hand in getting this bad boy funded!

On a side note, if MMOs and Pirates are more your style, check out one of Tom's other projects, then check out Pirate 101

Until next time,
