Help Rescue Tasty, Tasty Grandpa. Feel Good About Self

You may remember Tasty, Tasty Grandpa from Tracey Lien's developer series right here at Kotaku Australia. It was a game that was supposed to be finished in month but expanded in scope to the point where the team now needs an extra programmer to get things finished. And that's where you come in...

Craig Duturbure, the creator of the project has set up a Pozible account (the Australian version of Kickstarter) in order to try and raise funds to make sure the game gets made. He also made a pretty spectacular video which you can view above.

Up until now the team behind Tasty, Tasty Grandpa has been working for free — including Tracey — and I'd hate for all that to be for nothing. Usually it's been my own (personal) policy to not donate to these sorts of things, because I feel like I should try and remain objective and all that nonsense, but considering the fact that Kotaku Australia has been following the progress of this title since its inception, I almost feel as though I owe it to post this, and donate myself. I want to see this game get finished.

If that makes me a big fat stupid hypocrite then so be it. Also, the video is really good. That was a big motivating factor for me.

You can donate to the Tasty, Tasty Grandpa cause here.

    It's one of those kickstarters with kinda lame rewards, but the goal is low so I think they'll be able to meet it :)

    Err, i am reading on my phone but no level seems to promise a free copy?

      I noticed that too, I think the closest you get is beta access.

      This is explained in the description.

      "Note that all the funding tiers are $1 less than a nice, round number. This is so you can keep that $1 aside to buy the game on release! The game isn’t included in the rewards for a bunch of reasons, but mainly because we’d have to gift it to everyone (and we only get a handful of gift codes), which drains the funds and also forbids you from leaving a review on the App Store, and we’ll really REALLY need your positive reviews, if you like the game! Thanks for understanding!"

      Which is fair enough really.

        Curses! I thought I had reloaded the page first! Oh well, at least I'm enforcing it for those who didn't know.
