The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment Kickstarter Campaign

February 23, 2011 -

The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment (The MADE, for short), kicked off a Kickstarter fundraising campaign. The organizers hope to fund the creation of a small "starter museum" in the San Francisco Bay Area to house The MADE's existing collection of works. The fundraising campaign will run until April 18, and already the project is 7 percent funded. With 53 days remaining the project already has 128 backers and has raised $11,722 of its $20,000 Goal.

In order to encourage Kickstarter donations, The MADE will be giving away copies of PC games, donated by Kalypso Media, including 3 signed copies of the newly released Dungeons. Additionally, a signed, sealed copy of Pathways Into Darkness for Power Macintosh is on offer to the top donor. Pathways into Darkness was one of Bungie Studio’s earliest game releases.

"We are thrilled to be able to contribute to this great chronicle of the expansive history of video games," said Mario Kroll, Vice President of Kalypso Media USA. "While comparatively young, the video game industry has evolved very quickly and dramatically, becoming a full-fledged art form. I can think of no better cause to support than The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment, helping all of us remember and honor our inspiration, professional heritage and an industry that has made it possible to do what we truly love."

"This is going to be a long process, so we’re starting small," said Alex Handy. "Our current priorities are securing a safe space near public transit for the creation of this museum. Given a location, we have an almost infinite supply of ideas to realize. We plan to hold classes, talks, demo scene events, 48-hour game development jams, and LAN parties. Though our initial space will be small, a focus on the community will enable us to build an organization that will be able to chronicle the artistry of videogames for generations to come."

The MADE will be exhibiting at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco at the Moscone Center, in booth 2040, March 2, 3, and 4. Interviews with the founders and staff are available upon request.

Mattsworknamealso, in MGR, on higher levels, button mashing will get you reckt, you have to master parry to even have a prayer05/24/2015 - 8:52pm
MattsworknameI kinda would like a bit more variety in the combat, as it feels a bit to stiff and slow for me. Especailly after other games ive played05/24/2015 - 8:39pm
Goth_SkunkThere's... no button mashing in DA:I. However, neither is DA:I's combat perfect. I, for one, detest the active talent max limit of 8.05/24/2015 - 8:21pm
MattsworknameDa I combat is fun, a bit stiff but fun, but I still say the best pure combat engine in any game was Metal gear rising.05/24/2015 - 7:15pm
ZippyDSMleeWhen DA gets a control system like DA:O I'll brother to want to paly it, I frown on button mashing RPGs not made by bethseda...05/24/2015 - 5:59pm

Goth_SkunkThe game is 75% sidequests, 25% story. And most of those sidequests are only vaguely related to the main story at all, having very little consequence to the plot at large.05/24/2015 - 1:12pm
Goth_SkunkI'm such a huge BioWare fan that I played through my first playthrough of DA:I without complaint, but on my second time through I certainly took notice of just how much side-quest material there was. It's probably my greatest criticism of the game.05/24/2015 - 1:10pm

Goth_SkunkPlaying a third and probably final playthrough of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Once that's done, I'll move on to AC: Unity, most likely, then get caught up on A-list games I have yet to play, like Murdered: Soul Suspect and Shadows of Mordor.05/23/2015 - 6:33pm
MattsworknameIf you own a vita and like monster hunter, but dont like the bs filler that goes with it. Try tokiden kiwmai05/23/2015 - 6:11pm
