Besides sporting some absolutely stunning pixel-art and what seems to be the most appropriately silly voice-overs ever recorded, Starr Mazer has also reminded me of the real point of Kickstarter: funding wild ideas. Allowing for talented teams to try all sorts of new things and, in this case, even enabling them to attempt to fuse traditional point-and-click adventures with action heavy shoot-'em-ups.

Yes, Starr Mazer does sound like something 16-years old me would fantasize about and something way older me would definitely love to see happen, if only to see just how seamless this ambitious blending of the genres can be. It already looks pretty amazing and very clever if you have to know.

Starr Mazer is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter and $15 pledge will earn you a copy upon release.
