Last night i had a game-design dream about Fez II. It was wonderful.
My name is Arden, and after a few days of thinking I’ve decided that I’m going to ruin video games.
I’m going to be doing everything in my power to destroy them completely. Walking simulators about feelings and emotions as far as the eye can see! Guns that shoot kisses! Lady characters that…
I’ve been sort of quiet this week. Not much to show with the things I’ve been working on, mostly minor tweaks and fixes.
So, I feel like it’s time for an update. After 10 months of waiting, I’m happy to announce that Space Email returns on the 26th of June.
Remember that it’s completely free…
My name is Kelly, I am 21, a woman and a gamer. I have been playing video games since I was 2 years old starting with the NES, SNES and original Gameboy. The first game I fell in love with was Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars for the SNES and, based solely on nostalgia, it’s my favorite…

KICKSTART THIS SHIZZ: HOTLINE MIAMI 1/6 SCALE ARTICULATED JACKET FIGURE
Our longtime amigo Erick Scarecrow has teamed up with Dennation Games and Devolver Digital for what could be his biggest release to date - a figure based on Jacket, the protagonist in the video game cult sensation Hotline Miami.
Making a leap from the urban designer vinyl toy scene, Erick Scarecrow shows that he’s more than capable of producing high-end licensed 1/6 scale figures on par with the likes of those produced by 3A or Hot Toys.
The primary figure is 12” tall and comes with four removable heads: Tony (Tiger), Richard (Rooster), Aubrey (Pig), and a bloody, bandaged Jacket head. The figure also comes with interchangeable clothing including a letter jacket, t-shirt, pair of jeans, Air Vigilante sneakers and a hospital gown. Three weapons - a shotgun, baseball bat, and katana - are included for Jacket to hold as he is posed using the 15 points of articulation.
The figure (prototype pictured above) still needs to reach its funding goal of $60,000, but due to the game’s huge fan following, there’s a pretty good change that the goal will be crushed.
Check out the official Hotline Miami - Jacket Figure Kickstarter page to check out all the cool backer tiers and incentives including all sorts of cool little goodies like Steam keys for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number game & soundtrack, wallpapers, and a snazzy pin set. There’s also the ultra awesome “Midnight Miami Marauder” colorway limited to 1,000 pieces which is only available for backers at the $200 level.
I’ve been following Erick’s work and career for years, and this is an exciting next step. Can’t wait to see where he goes from here.
