I checked in to Kickstarter
a few days ago and saw that there are a bunch of spooky projects happening right now. I'm going to show you a few of my favorites today, but if you see something you like you'll have to act fast because some of them are ending shortly- like within hours.
Built On Strange Ground by Sarah Benkin
Benkin is offering a graphic novel of true, personal experiences of strange places, haunted sites, mysteries neighbors and true lore from a variety of talented and diverse artists. Pledges start at $10 for a digital copy of the book. The project has already reached its goal and ends in 5 days.
This children's book is a follow-up to C is for Cthulhu: The Lovecraft Alphabet Book. How did we miss that one?! Ciaramella explains "For me there is a certain satisfaction in taking HP's nightmarish creatures and turning them into something sweet that might help kids at bedtime." I love this project. A $10 pledge gets you an e-book. The project is fully funded and ends in just 17 hours. Don't delay.
"A Dance With Death is a modern fable about the end of the world told in comic format." Yates has already published an online version of the tale and now wants to publish a print edition. A pledge of just $5 (Canadian) get you the digital version, but for $20 (Canadian) you get the print edition, a mini print, and an enamel pin. That's the deal my friends. This project ends in 11 days and I think we all want to know how the world is going to end. Personally, I think it might be sooner rather than later.
Spooky Things is a collection of paranormal, spooky and weird illustrations by graphic designer Chris Raimo. The illustrations are fabulous and project rewards include the book, a calendar, prints, and t-shirt among other things. The project is fully awarded and has 3 days to go. Definitely check this one out.
I'm usually not that interested in games, but this one looks like something I'd love to play. The premise of the game is that an old house becomes an orphanage and catches on fire killing 13 children. The house is restored and is now the home to 13 malevolent children ghosts. Players are ghost hunters trying to put the children to rest. Unfortunately, the ghosts are not cooperative. A pledge of $25 gets you a copy of the game. The project has 6 days to go and stretch goals have already been unlocked. I'm in.
If you've never been on Kickstarter
, I highly encourage you to explore. I've only scratched the surface of the spooky projects taking place right now and you may find something that suits you perfectly.
