Offworld –> Venus Patrol

Brandon Boyer's defunct Boingboing subsite Offworld is being reborn as Venus Patrol. This is likely worth rejoicing over.

Kickstarter page to help support the upcoming site. $25 gets you a handful of (exclusive?) games from some leading Indie developers.

Boingboing post with, in the comments section, a little information about Offworld’s shuttering that hadn’t previously been disclosed. (Spoiler: It was about the ad dollars.)

  1. I had been wondering what happened to the Offworld blog.

    The ad revenue thing is interesting, as I HAVE A PLAN RELATED TO THAT THAT I CANNOT YET REVEAL. ;-)

  2. I totally should have put that above the fold, as it’s definitely the most interesting new piece of info here. Until now I had assumed there was some (inter?)personal blow-out or (later) that Brandon had possibly voluntarily closed up shop the year before so he could devote full attention to his upcoming festival duties.

Sorry, comments are closed for this post.
