Today in gaming: IndieGoGo has a video game project that I think is really cool and has a lot of potential. It's called Divergence Online and it's the brainchild of creator Ethan Casner. The game has a serious science fiction bent, and allows you to play as one of five human species. The non-sapien versions of people each have a different genetic-engineering-related back story as to how they came into being.
And for $1,000US, you can buy your own island in the game. How about that! You can find out all the details in the link below.
