This is actually... a timely post, given that the last one was about Broken Age. Anyway!
After failing to Kickstart the orgasmic gaming bliss that is Darkest Dungeon, I promised myself I would never again let a Kickstarter that sparked my imagination (and had a good chance of actually keeping its promise) go un-funded, by yours truly. I haven't suffered much, by way of temptation, since making that promise, but on Friday Kotaku highlighted a book that I want a copy of.
Chainmail Bikini is a 200-page paperback book of gaming comics from the perspective of female gamers. It covers LARPing, tabletop roleplaying, and of course video games. For $10 you'll get a .PDF of all the comics as soon as the Kickstarter ends on April 2nd. For $25, you'll get the .PDF and paperback copy of the book when it appears later this year, and for $35 you'll get it shipped to Canada because your ancestors decided to drop anchor in the wrong damned country.
But still - if I saw this thing in a bookstore, saw a price tag of $30, and acknowledged I'd have to pay another $5 in tax to see it safely home? I would buy this book.
So I did.
And y'know what? I am.
I am the best.
Chainmail Bikini's Kickstarter closes in three days, so get in there if you want your copy.
