The developers of Caveman Warriors [Kickstarter Link] sent in a copy of their in-development 1-4 player action platformer and it's really quite good.

I also got them to update their gamejolt page with a Linux demo today, so go check it out.

I rarely, if ever say this, but I think it's actually a good one to support on their Kickstarter. They reached out to me and gave me a build in their initial email, put up a Linux demo at my request for everyone else and the game itself seems really nice.

I've tested the build they sent me in their initial email and I haven't found a single problem. It's super smooth, looks good and it worked with my Steam Controller without issues once I picked the basic gamepad config.

They currently have $6,817 pledged of their $10,000 goal, so they only need a small push to make it happen.

Even I'm tempted to back this one, as I can see myself, my girlfriend and my son blasting through this one together.

Chuck Rock rides again. Not something I would play but looks like a lot of fun nevertheless.

It looks like to me Lost Vikings met Prehistoric and had some fun.
I am rooting for them to get the money and release this.

I had the same thought, except I loved Chuck Rock on the old Sega Genesis/Mega Drive back in the day. I am a sucker for this kind of stuff, definitely going to give it a look.
