Indie Pleas: Indie game crowd funding roundup for June 14, 2013
Town of Salem is a fresh innovation on the classic party games Mafia and Werewolf. It is a game of murder, accusations, deceit and mob hysteria. Town of Salem takes place in the early 1600's during the era of the Salem witch trials. The game ranges from 7 to 15 players. These players are randomly divided into alignments - Town, Mafia, Serial Killers, Arsonists and Neutrals. If you are a Town member (the good guys) you must track down the Mafia and other villains before they kill you. The catch? You don't know who is a Town member and who is a villain. If you are an evil role, such as a Serial Killer, you secretly murder town members in the veil of night and try to avoid getting caught.
The game starts by building a team. Select the right guys, hand them a ghost-gun, a few traps and a sensor and purchase a car. Now all you need to do is wait for the first call and off you go. Riding through the city, it depends on you and the competing teams cars to be first at the scene of the spook. Having arrived, you enter the building and use your sensors (or eyes) to search for the haunting ghost. Split your team up or go as a team, it's up to you. In best X-Com manner, your up to five team-members seek and entrap the troublemaker. As the game progresses more and more equipment will become available and you will encounter more challenging troublemakers. If your business ends up in bankruptcy try again and sort out your strategy!
It is a survival based horror RPG, which will immerse you in a Siberian, post apocalyptic wasteland. The game takes place in a secret Soviet city, which was partly destroyed.

Exploring new areas, scavenging and fighting for your life, you will be making hard choices between greater good and your personal goals, which will lead you to different outcomes.

Bag the Bully is a computer (PC/Mac & possibly Linux if we can find someone to test it for us) game in which the player must strategically identify a bully among a group of students. The Bag the Bully school does not tolerate bullying so it has implemented an anonymous tip system that the student characters can use to report bullying incidents to the player via a smartphone-type device. The player uses the anonymous tips received each period of the school day to identify and “bag” the bully before 10th period ends. The tips refer to characteristics of the bully, such as the bully’s shirt color or the bully’s class schedule. Because there may be multiple students each school day wearing a red shirt or attending a 7th period math class, it could take several periods for the player to “bag” the bully.
Skara is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA), available for PC, next gen consoles and portable devices, and developed by a small team of Spanish digital artists, coders, and gamers. Skara aims to revolutionize all the mmo/rpg/fps varieties of game already in existence. You choose the style and direction of your attacks. Your opponent must block or hint at the exact moment to avoid being impacted. Attack is about dexterity. Blocking is about reflexes. Every movement can be counter-attacked, happening to become into an instant kill as result. Some of these attacks may be combined in combos. And we've got at least one additional special movement for every race, available only under specific circumstances.
