Can this really be happening? Pelloni now has a Kickstarter for the full bob’s game for PC, Mac, Linux, and Android. He’s hoping to raise $10,000. At the time of this writing, he’s raised $1,515 with 28 days to go. I think he’s going to do it this time. I’m also a big fan of his reward tiers – or tier, rather. For $20, “You get access to the full single player campaign when it is available, a premium account for the online service, access to a special forum, and other goodies!” I actually have a lot of respect for that.
Is it sad that I actually had a dream that I met Robert Pelloni last night?
There’s a nice, long history written at bobsgame.com as well. You might want to check it out!
Thank you to everyone who continues to check out my site and keep me informed. I received comments about the new Kickstarter on my last bob’s game post by wot is bobs gam, killamo187, and anonymouse, so thanks you three! Also, thanks to gBev for keeping up the Bob’s Game Mailing List.
As usual, I’m going to update my master post on bob’s game here on Polygons and Pixels, The strange tale of “bob’s game.” I’m going to consider this Act X. That’s a nice, round number. It sure would be nice if this is the one that leads to an actual release!
Update, 5/23/14: The Kickstarter succeeded yesterday!

Reacting anyway to this: awesome.
At this moment he’s at 31%, mainly thanks to (I presume) The Men Who Wear Many Hats, an indie developer. It’s good to see (small) companies investing, and we should try to spread the word to the right people these 20 remaining days. Bob’s actually got a chance to succeed I think. But I’m still a bit anxious to get my hopes up to be honest :0
Well, we will see. Perhaps finally after 5 years this quest is completed.
It’s freaking unbelievable, someone donated ~$5.000! I could *not* be more excited.
“bob’s game” CANNOT BE STOPPED!
Thanks for the notice! I had just checked this morning and closed the window sad, thinking it wouldn’t happen. I doubt this is just some random fan. It could be Robert, a friend of his, or a family member. That seems common on other projects anyways.
Thanks again for letting me know. I’m off to an early screening of X-men now, but I’ll try to get a new post about it up tonight or tomorrow! I can’t wait to play the game!
