Kickstarter Projects: Tweet Land
Although Tweet Land has reached its goal with a week to spare, I can’t help but want to direct your attention over at this awesome little project over at Kickstarter. What is it about? In a nutshell, Tweet Land is twittering made real and by real, I mean a meteor landing on the virtual road in the communal game just because someone mentioned it in passing.
Upon release, the Tweet Land universe will feature two video games: Route 140 and LoveCity, both of which will be susceptible to the whims and the fancies of the unsuspecting Twitter public and also the players involved. I’m not quite sure how exactly trending will affect the environment but I’m eager to find out. It’s one thing to add a social networking component to a game. It’s another thing entirely to trigger a zombie infestation because someone is commenting on their Monday blues. According to the Kickstarter page, it looks like the developers are planning to release Tweet Land for the iPhone and the web browser.
Curiosity piqued? Unconvinced? Either way, I definitely suggest poking your head over at their Kickstarter page. If you have an extra buck or so, this is a pretty worthwhile place to park it.
