Rick Dakan sez, "Last fall, Mob Rules Games let voters choose their project, and they picked the turn-based haunted house game, Haunts: The Manse Macabre. The trio of indie developers, Geek Mafia author Rick Dakan, programmer Jonathan Wills, and artist Austin McKinnley have been working on it ever since, with the help of a small outside investment. Haunts is being written in Go and the code is all open source, while the content is licensed under Creative Commons. Mob Rules Games is a Benefit Corporation that is employee-owned and managed. They make all budget, sales, schedule, and investments entirely public. They're running a Kickstarter campaign to raise the final $25,000 they need to finish the game in time for Halloween. You can check out their creepy-fun Kickstarter video to learn more, and learn more about the game and the company.
