I am currently working on a free flash game prototype where the entire world will be created and designed by players. Think of it as a crowd-designed game rather than crowd-funded. Most of the core concepts are in the game, but until recently I only had my crappy programmer artwork.
In order to get the game up to a decent quality, I decided to spend some money on a pixel artist. The game is already looking A LOT better.
I hope to get the first playable version up sometime soon.
