What’s Cool on Kickstarter

Death in Chocolate
These chocolates are works of art. I don’t think I could ever bring myself to eat them, not only because they look like skulls and diseased jaws, but because of all the work that was put into making them beautiful.

“What had begun as a fascination with horror, alternative art, the culinary arts, taxidermy and all things odd, has grown multiple heads — and they’re all made of chocolate!

I began working on small, specially cast and hand-painted chocolate bird skulls. Before I knew it, I had branched out into other animal and human skulls. Most recently, I’ve been producing antique anatomical teaching models in chocolate. Each one is hand painted and individually finished and packaged.”


Where’s Cthulhu?
I wasted a lot of time as a kid on the I Spy and Where’s Waldo books. This one has Cthulhu and other Old Ones hiding out waiting for you to roll a high enough Spot Hidden to find them.

“We are building Arkham in retro style, pixel by pixel: everybody is around the Miskanotic river and the University campus to join the Arkham Parade, while the cultists cross the river with the big balloons: the Elder Thing, Cthulhu, Dagon… they are proud of their gods and entities and everybody is coming to join the party! The poster size is 19×27″ – 50x70cm.”


I did an interview with the BattleBards crew to find out more about how they allow you to integrate sound and music into your game to give it the right type of atmosphere.

“Spotify meets Tabletop RPGs — Battlebards is the most expansive Tabletop Audio Libraryand Tools ever assembled to make your campaigns simply epic. And, everything is accessible straight through your browser.

Tailor-made background music inspired by fantasy races, voiceover scripts written to bring life to everyday NPC interactions, and a colossal array of bone crushing, spell fire blasting sound effects… this is immersive gaming at its best for the Player and the GM. ”


NerdAche Cakes
I’ve been following NerdAche Cakes on Tumblr for forever and I don’t think I’ve ever seen more gorgeous geeky sweets. She’s looking to open her own bakery and get more people working with her to release these delicacies to the masses, and I hope she can manage it!


“Ever since we started Nerdache Cakes, a tumblr blog running on cake requests in 2011, we’ve been asked where our store is located. Now we are ready to provide our fellow geeks a place of their own.

Nerdache Cakes Bakery + Café, where you can get awesome, level-up inducing treats that are decadent, fun, and a nod to your favorite icons in pop culture nerd-ery!

After 3 years of building Nerdache Cakes- from piping cupcakes in a corner in my kitchen to making 6 tier cakes for geek weddings, I’ve outgrown my tiny space. This bakery would be built from years of work done just by myself, to a team of people ready to make your geekiest sweets come true!”
