Most times, when you look around on Kickstarter, it’s not too pretty. Sure, there’s projects like the Double Fine Adventure game that are completely awesome, but just looking around doesn’t always yield the best results. However, Moon Intern looks to be a promising little game.
The video on the Kickstarter page explains everything best, but I’ll do my best to sum it up here. You play as, you guessed a, a intern on the surface of the moon, helping out the denizens and taking care of problems, including alien rebels and haunted ships. There is a lot to do, and many ways to get it done, and how you handle everything takes you along different play paths and scenarios that best matched your play style. It’s a nice system, allowing everyone a somewhat tailored game experience.
The other interesting thing is about the people of the moon; they’re based on real people… specifically they’re people that donated to the game on Kickstarter and filled out an extensive survey to get a unique NPC. It costs a little extra, but it’s worth it for those who have the extra cash to donate.
The problem is, Moon Intern isn’t quite funded yet; with seven days to go, they still need $5,000 out of the $80,000 needed. They’re very close, but they need that final push to get the game made. So if it interests you, make sure to donate the ten bucks for a digital copy!
