Here is our second Insert Money Here article featuring some fantastic Indie games that need your help! I'd like to thank everyone that shared the Indie games that they're excited about. I'm sorry that I couldn't add them all! If you have ideas for next weeks article, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send a message through G+, Twitter or Facebook!
I have to say that I'm most excited about Techno Ninja. I absolutely loved Mark of the Ninja and older games like Ninja Gaiden and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1 & 2. Techno Ninja reminded me of those games and I'm proud to be a backer of the project! Crash Point and ZED also look very interesting to me and I will be backing them too.
I'd like to apologize for the poor quality screenshots. I didn't have much to work with this week!

Immersive 2D action platformer for PC/Mac/Linux (console later) depicting an alternate history of Laika, the Soviet space dog.
In the late 1950’s, the Soviets were pressured into a quick follow-up to the success of Sputnik 1. As they scrambled to launch Sputnik 2, they included plans to launch the first organism into orbit as a way to up the ante on the Americans. They took stray dogs off the street and put them through rigorous tests and training. One of these strays was the dog we know now as Laika. She was selected to be the first dog in space and was launched aboard Sputnik 2 on November 3, 1957. Unfortunately, in their haste, the Soviets did not incorporate any method to return Laika to Earth. At the time, it was said she was humanely euthanized after several days in orbit. It was revealed decades later that she most likely died from heat exhaustion shortly after leaving the Earth's atmosphere.
