Tabletop Forge is a Kickstarter project to build a Google Hangout app.
It’s a very good sign that the campaign has exploded on Google+ with the interest. As adland says; “It’s gone viral”. At the time of posting this blog post Google+ comments about Tabletop Forge. It’s interesting to note that only a small percentage of people expressing an interest in the project have backed it.
It helps to have tried a Google Hangout to understand why this Kickstarter is so tempting. Google Hangouts are exceptionally easy to do and a very good video chat experience. This blogger certainly thought almost immediately how Hangouts could be used for remote RP within seconds of his first Google Hangout.
Having said that only a fraction of apparent supporters have backed the project the numbers look good. With 29 days still to go the project has nearly 90 backers and is approaching $2,000. Those numbers are fluid, they will rise, and the team is only asking for $5,000 for success.
I’m a backer. Are you tempted?
