Strafe is bringin’ back the 90’s!

Strafe is a retro-looking 3D shoot-em-up game that’s currently raising funds on Kickstarter, and I must admit, I’m not super impressed with the gameplay they show. Yeah, it’s got this blocky, retro 90’s style, but…why not just play Quake? There are loads of classic 90’s shooters that look just like this. So why should we give a damn? Because holy hell, Strafe has one of the greatest Kickstarter campaigns I’ve ever seen. Let’s start with the trailer above: how frigging perfect is it? It looks like it’s straight out of the 90’s. If it weren’t for the gory face-melting, you could easily mistake this for a classic commercial. Next up: the reward tiers. Again, they’re going full-on 90’s, with rewards like shareware access (ahh, good old shareware) and even limited-edition POGS! Remember Pogs? To top it all off, their highest reward tier (obtainable by donating $10,000) is a custom-branded wooden casket and a tombstone shaped like a CRT monitor. You can take your love of Strafe…to your GRAVE! This is just too good. If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go throw money at these guys. And you should too, by clicking here.
