SkateBIRD, a game about birds on skateboards (that's actually pretty sweet) is closing in on the last day of funding. They've also announced some more fun stuff coming to it and the demo will vanish after the Kickstarter, so be quick.
As a reminder, SkateBIRD from Glass Bottom Games (Spartan Fist, Hot Tin Roof, Jones On Fire) is already fully funded, with it currently sitting at just under $60K. Thanks to the amount they have in funding, they've secured a few stretch-goals (additional features unlocked at certain funding amounts). These goals included unlockable side stories, an outdoor skatepark, a bonus level in the clouds, bird apparel customization, different types of birds and now their final stretch-goal is to get a photo mode which sounds sweet.
Glass Bottom Games have just announced that Them's Fightin' Herds from developer Mane6, is going to have a little crossover inside SkateBIRD. Coming in the form of a "brand", you will be able to get some fun looking decks like this (click to enlarge - not final):
Sounds like there might be another surprise they're going to announce at some point too. SkateBIRD is going to get a "secret skater" from another successful indie game, so I'm very curious to find out who (or what?) it will be!
Check out the Kickstarter here and the demo here which will be removed when it's over, although you can continue playing it if you download it now. You can also wishlist/follow it on Steam. If you do wishlist things on Steam, remember to set your platform properly to show up as a Linux wishlist.
If you're interested in a little history, on how SkateBIRD came to be, check out their post on Imgur.
