Follow Foster, spirit of the sea and gentle being, as he arrives in America and lives completely isolated in the Shenandoah Valley for 100 years, after which he is found and recruited by the provincial militia.

From there, Foster embarks on strange journey spanning three wars and the entire eastern seaboard of North America. He sees and experiences many things: those once loyal to England become American rebels; dear friends turn to foes; mortal companions blossom and wither. He bears witness to the chain of events that would create the United States, and is left with revelations both inspiring and woeful.    

This is not a story about a man who changes the world. It’s the story of a world that changes a man.

The current Kickstarter is Americana Dawn‘s second crowdfunder. The first was in May 2012, during which Bit Bonton raised close to $5,000 USD (base goal was $2,000 USD). The game was then created using a pre-built engine and many public assets. The result was short and experimental.

Americana Dawn is now being remade with a new cast, lore and purpose, a custom engine and all original assets. The base goal of the current Kickstarter campaign, which will run until December 23, 2014, is $70,000 USD. The game is also on Steam Greenlight.

The plan is to release Americana Dawn initially on Windows. Mac, Linux and PS4 will follow if stretch goals are met.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
