Jason Rohrer launches Diamond Trust of London Kickstarter campaign

To fund Nintendo's 'large manufacturing minimum'

For: DS

Although it was originally slated to arrive in "summer 2010" and then in the second half of 2011, indie developer Jason Rohrer's Diamond Trust of London is yet to see the light of day.

Good news, though, folks: Rohrer's DS strategy title is now "finished, approved by Nintendo, and ready to be manufactured into cartridges". That, naturally, requires bountiful amounts of that green stuff that's often referred to as 'cash'.

Facing Nintendo's "large manufacturing minimum", the game's developer has taken to crowdfunding website Kickstarter to raise the necessary wonga.

Pledge your allegiance

Diamond Trust of London's first run will be a limited edition release, with only 1,000 units made available - all of which will arrive signed, numbered, and housing "very special items inside the package". You'll have to pledge at least $55 to get your hands on one of these around August.

Pledge $35 or more, and you'll get a regular boxed copy of the game around a month later in September.

In case you've forgotten, Diamond Trust of London is a turn-based, simultaneous-decision strategy title that sees two players battle it out to amass diamonds over eight in-game months. We've been hands-on with it, so be sure to check that out before you leave.

I managed to get a one question interview from Jason Rohrer, the creator of this game, http://thoseguys.tv/one-question-interview-with-the-creator-of-diamond-trust-of-london/. A lot of people have been pledging to the game to get the limited edition in hopes of getting ahold of a rare collectible. I asked him what he thought about people just collecting the game and keeping it sealed. His response: "I hope people open it and play it!"
