Games-only crowdfunding site Gamesplanet Lab launches

Given how successful many developers have been crowd-funding their games on Kickstarter and IndieGoGo, it was inevitable that someone would set up a site dedicated to games. Digital distributor Gamesplanet has launched its Gamesplanet Lab, which combines the usual fundraising doodads with built-in tools for distributing the game, polls, and granting perks like reward artwork and chatting with creators.

To see how it works, check out the campaign for Magrunner: Dark Pulse, a "cyberpunk reimagining of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulu Mythos." Developer 3AM Games, founded by members of Sherlock Holmes dev Frogwares, is looking for 100,000€ ($125,000-ish) to expand the almost-finished first-person puzzler, starting with a PvP mode. Go on, have a poke around and see what Gamesplanet Lab offers.

Runaway developer Pendulo is also planning to launch a campaign on GPL, for a "dark comedy adventure" named Day One.
