LA Game Space is looking to create a hub of game creation in Los Angeles, featuring development tools, pseudo classrooms, mentorship and networking opportunities, along with game development workshops streamed, for free, around the world. And with less that 10 days to reach its Kickstarter goal, they are half way there with $125,000 more to go.
Now, they are sweetening the deal for potential backers. Keita Takahashi, the creator of Katamari Damacy, and Adam Saltsman, the “running” man behind Canabalt, are teaming up to create a game just for people who back the project.
Anyone who pledges $5 or more to the LA Game Space Kickstarter will get Takahashi and Saltsman’s game - whatever it turns out being - for PC, Mac or Linux. The game will also be in addition to the reward for pledges of $15 and more, which offers 30 new games from prominent indie developers such as Hotline Miami’s Cactus, Steve Swink of Scale, and Ben Esposito of Unfinished Swan, among others. You can check out the entire list on their Kickstarter main page.
