Cheap @#$ Gaming #3

Hey All, it has been a while since I put together one of these posts, which highlight a couple different things to help out the cheap/budget gamer.

The first thing I wanted to show you is a narrative RPG introduced to me by Jason King (Vicaroth on these forums). Anyone who knows Jason has heard of Lady Blackbird.

When I first met him a few weeks back, we sat and played this wonderful game at Coffee & Company. Though I was shy and not quite out of my shell, it was very fun.

Below is a photo of your ship, as well as a copy of the Synopsis which can be found on the Lady Blackbird Site.
Lady Blackbird is on the run from an arranged marriage to Count Carlowe. She hired a smuggler skyship, The Owl, to take her from her palace on the Imperial world of Ilysium to the far reaches of the Remnants, so she could be with her once secret lover: the pirate king Uriah Flint.

HOWEVER, just before reaching the halfway point of Haven, The Owl was pursued and captured by the Imperial cruiser Hand of Sorrow, under charges of flying a false flag.

EVEN NOW, Lady Blackbird, her bodyguard, and the crew of The Owl are detained in the brig, while the Imperial commander runs the smuggler ship’s registry over the wireless. It’s only a matter of time before they discover the outstanding warrants and learn that The Owl is owned by none other than the infamous outcast, Cyrus Vance.

How will Lady Blackbird and the others escape the Hand of Sorrow?

What dangers lie in their path?

Will they be able to find the secret lair of the pirate king? if they do, will Uriah Flint accept Lady Blackbird as his bride? By the time they get there, will she want him to?

Go. Play. And find out.

Now something we haven't updated about in a while is videogames. The following game, FORCED, is a kickstarter project by BetaDwarf, which is described as Diablo meets Left 4 Dead - Indie style! The game will be available for the Pc, Mac, Linux, Xbox360, PS3, and is DRM free.

I would suggest checking out their kickstarter here and backing the project if it is something you would be interested in.
