A mighty slick and stylish looking game design is currently up for funding over at Kickstarter by way of Game Designers Clubhouse. Swinging Jivecat Voodoo Lounge pokes some fun at the cocktail culture of the 1950s and 60s with a seemingly odd combination of socializing hip guys and gals, mixology, voodoo spells, and real life cocktail recipes. The project runs through February 5th (with a projected ship date of November 2015) and you can score a copy at the $50 pledge level.
And be sure to cue up a little Brian Setzer Orchestra while you’re at it!
