A Canadian studio, Breakfall, has put their game on Kickstarter called Starwhal: Just the Tip. The game is a 2D multiplayer battle game that consists of space and narwhal’s.  The goal is to stab the opposing player with your horn while avoiding getting stabbed yourself.  Based off the gameplay trailers, the battles look intense and easy enough for anyone to pick up and play, similar to Bomberman and Towerfall.  The easy to learn difficult to master aspect should bring a pretty wide audience.
