thumbsup BGG's got one.

thumbsup RPGG's got one.

thumbsdown But VGG don't really got one. cry Why not? Who knows!

LET'S DO THIS.

Simply list video game (or videogame-related) Kickstarter projects with some basic info (brief description, an image, how much the basic game-only pledge costs, Kicktraq graph, etc.).

Please limit additions to projects that you're excited about, because that's the point: to learn about interesting and exciting video game Kickstarters! Not to list every single crummy zombie survival FPS/RTS-hybrid voxel game seeking funding.

(P.S. Feel free to list projects on other crowdfunding sites, too.)

To add a Kicktraq graph with handy info like the number of days remaining and the $$$ pledged to date (with a little lag)...
1) head over to Kicktraq.com,
2) enter the project URL at the top of the page,
3) hit the "Share" tab, and
4) copy-paste the "BBCode for forums" to display it on VGG. And that's it! Just hit save and the Kicktraq will show up.

Project Eternity - an isometric, party-based fantasy RPG

Info: "by Obsidian Entertainment" (Does more really need to be said? )

"Project Eternity will take the central hero, memorable companions and the epic exploration of Baldur’s Gate, add in the fun, intense combat and dungeon diving of Icewind Dale, and tie it all together with the emotional writing and mature thematic exploration of Planescape: Torment.

Combat uses a tactical real-time with pause system - positioning your party and coordinating attacks and abilities is one of the keys to success. The world map is dotted with unique locations and wilderness ripe for exploration and questing. You’ll create your own character and collect companions along the way – taking him or her not just through this story, but, with your continued support, through future adventures. You will engage in dialogues that are deep, and offer many choices to determine the fate of you and your party. …and you'll experience a story that explores mature themes and presents you with complex, difficult choices to shape how your story plays out."

SHAKER: An RPG by Brenda Brathwaite & Tom Hall

Info: "Shaker: An Old School RPG is a first-person perspective, fantasy/sci-fi game set in a Bridge world between the future and the very distant medieval past. Taking the role of operative James Connelly (you may also customize your lead character), an employee of Shaker Corporation, you are called upon to set right a deadly chain of events that began millennia ago. You and your crew of 3 operatives will be deployed to Antera, a medieval, fantasy world in the distant past. There, under a feudal guise, you must unearth the very beginning of a horrible chain of events and avert it, or the universe we know today will cease to exist in a mere 100 years.

Our developers have designed and worked on ground-breaking and award-winning titles respected throughout the world including games in the seminal Dungeons & Dragons®, Wizardry®, Ghost Recon™, Ultima™, Bard's Tale™, Commander Keen™, DOOM™, Quake®, The Sims™, Mortal Kombat™, MechAssault™ and Jagged Alliance® series."

Star Citizen - epic 3D space sim

Info: "Star Citizen brings the visceral action of piloting interstellar craft through combat and exploration to a new generation of gamers at a level of fidelity never before seen. At its core Star Citizen is a destination, not a one-off story. It's a complete universe where any number of adventures can take place, allowing players to decide their own game experience. Pick up jobs as a smuggler, pirate, merchant, bounty hunter, or enlist as a pilot, protecting the borders from outside threats. Chris Roberts has always wanted to create one cohesive universe that encompasses everything that made Wing Commander and Privateer / Freelancer special. A huge sandbox with a complex and deep lore allowing players to explore or play in whatever capacity they wish. That universe is Star Citizen."

Ars Magica Video Game

Info: "Imagine a world where myth is real. Faeries dance in forest glades, angels protect the Church, demons corrupt the weak, and wizards wield magic beyond the ken of other mortals.

You play one of these mages, and belong to one of 13 Houses banded together to form the ancient Order of Hermes. You’re dedicated to protecting and perfecting your command over magic. Served by knights, warriors, and peasants, you contend with the perils of plagues, beasts, battles, and other wizards to defend your covenant, your power, and your prestige. Your wizard will need to master the perils of life and death itself, if you are to prosper over 100 years of gameplay."

Maia

Info: "Inspired heavily by the 70's Sci-fi aesthetic, Maia is a colony management simulator where you must keep your colonists safe, fed and happy. Liberally influenced by nineties god games, the game will have a dark sense of humour and more toys to play with than you can shake a Molyneux at.

You must excavate an underground colony to escape the hostile surface of the world. Mine minerals for construction, build rooms to house, feed and entertain your colonists and defenses to protect them from dangerous wildlife.

Research sources of power, water and food. Explore the surface and perform science to produce the technology you need to survive your new home."

Elite: Dangerous

Info: "Take a ship and 100 credits to make money legally or illegally - trade, bounty-hunt, pirate, assassinate your way across the galaxy."

"Elite: Dangerous is the game I have wanted Frontier to make for a very long time. The next game in the Elite series - an amazing space epic with stunning visuals, incredible gameplay and breath-taking scope, but this time you can play with your friends too. I want a game that feels more like the original “Elite” to fly, and with more rapid travel (to allow for the multi-player nature of the game) – so you travel quickly using local ‘hyperspace’ travel rather than by fast-forwarding time – but with the rich galaxy of Frontier – and more, so much more."

Legend of Dungeon

Info: "Legend of Dungeon is about looking for treasure in a dungeon full to the brim with monsters. Legend has it there is a massive treasure all the way down on the 26th floor. Your quest is to go down there, get the treasure, and make it back to the surface alive.

It is part Beat'Em'Up, like those awesome old-school 4 player arcade games (it plays a little like TMNT and X-Men) and it's part RogueLike, in its setting and content generation."

The Magical Realms of Tír na nÓg: Escape from Necron 7 - Revenge of Cuchulainn: The Official Game of the Movie - Chapter 2 of the Hoopz Barkley SaGa (aka Barkley 2)

Info: "Not for TREND. Not for CORPORATE ATTITUDE. Not for STONER. Only true DOOM-MURDER HEADS."

"The year is 666X. A powerful youngster, wise beyond his years, awakens from a B-Ball induced coma aboard the mysterious dwarf space ziggurat Necron 7, held captive by the Malevolent A.I. Cuchulainn. With no memory of who he is or where he came from, he adopts the identity of X114JAM9 and sets off into the Post-Cyberpocalyptic Wasteland in search of the enigmatic Cyberdwarf, the only one who can reveal to him the terrible truth behind his forgotten past and make sense of his harrowing future. Barkley 2 is a coming of age story, a story about love, hope, betrayal and redemption. It is a story about identity and sacrifice, a story about wayward jocks struggling for a purpose. It is a story about the trials of our dystopian future and most importantly...

...it is a story about You."

17. Video Game: Small World 2 [Average Rating:7.45 Overall Rank:441] [Average Rating:7.45 Unranked]
Video Game: Small World 2
Technically called Small World 2, but its a re-release. This time with all the features and more asked for by the community.

www.kickstarter.com/projects/daysofwonder/small-world-2

I never picked up the first version as it was missing several features, but this version peaks my interest. It's a little confusing to fully understand the stretch goals vs the people who don't back it, but nonetheless it is a reprint we requested so time to pony up the dough!

(I tried to click on the share button in KickTraq and it only offered Tweet, Google Plus, and Linked in. No option for BBC code. Tried in both Firefox and IE.)

About: In short SkyJacker is a GTA meets Wing Commander game. You play as a space pirate in a open world space shooter.

Gas Powered Games started a Kickstarter last week to attempt funding to move a new title, "Wildman" toward completion. they evidently have been working on it for several months, but they are asking for $1.1 million in backing funds. Now into week two they are around $316K pledged. They made other news last week as evidently the company recently had three game development contracts cancelled by publishers, and the CEO, Chris Taylor, felt complelled to layoff his staff as he felt worried that if the KS performed poorly, he would have to do layoffs then and not be able to pay out severance, some of which have already been rehired foregoing severance if the project fails.

All of this created plenty of drama last week in game news, but now the KS seems to be refocusing on the game. Taylor has stated more video updates are going to be coming out soon on the project, and it might be worh tracking. Pledges are open till mid Feb.

They are calling it an "Action RPG with RTS elements". So possibly Dungeon siege like game play and RTS battles as well. Seems to have a technology tree and skill tree spin to it as well, as well as being modifiable. I loved Dungeon Siege personally, and I know the Supreme Command and Total Anihilation games were popular, so it sounds like it could be a lot of fun.


EDIT : LINK FIXED/Changed Pitch Video

13 years ago, one of the most legendary sci-fi games was released, and the space RTS genre took a giant leap forward in innovation and fun. Yet, somehow, nearly 10 years later, fans are still waiting for the next installment of the Homeworld franchise. We here at teamPixel, LLC are tired of waiting for the next Homeworld game and would like to rally fans together to bring the franchise back. The THQ bankruptcy has given all of us a massive opportunity to put Homeworld back in the hands of gamers. teamPixel respectfully requests the support of Homeworld fans everywhere in helping us raise funds to acquire the Homeworld franchise from THQ during their bankruptcy. With the franchise in hand, we would be able to pursue 3 initiatives for reviving the series:

*Homeworld on GoG.com and Steam. Easier access for old and new fans alike!

*Homeworld Touch - A legendary game with a modernized interface!

*Homeworld 3.

Torment: Tides of Numenera

Well, someone had to post this one to the list. May as well be me

Info:
Torment: Tides of Numenera is a game set in the world of Monte Cook’s new tabletop RPG setting, Numenera. Torment continues the thematic legacy of Planescape: Torment, a critically acclaimed role-playing game from 1999 that's considered by many to be a hallmark for storytelling in computer RPGs. With Torment, we're striving to create a rich role-playing experience that explores similar deep, personal themes.





STATUS: FUNDED

(backing through PayPal still available through to the end of April and will still count towards the stretch goals)

Shovel Knight
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/yachtclubgames/shovel-kn...

Platforms: Windows, Mac, Linux, 3DS, and WiiU

Info:Shovel Knight is a sweeping classic action adventure game with awesome gameplay, memorable characters, and an 8-bit retro aesthetic. It's a hot mashup of new and old that may remind you of Mega Man, Castlevania, or Dark Souls! You play as the eponymous Shovel Knight, a small knight with a huge quest. Shovel Knight has come to this valley with two goals: to defeat the evil Enchantress and save his lost beloved. He wields a ShovelBlade: a multipurpose weapon whose techniques have now been lost to the ages. Always honest and helpful, Shovel Knight is a shining example of the code of Shovelry: Slash Mercilessly and Dig Tirelessly!

But, between Shovel Knight and his beloved stands a cadre of villainous knights. These terrible foes, known as The Order of No Quarter, have been dispatched to prevent Shovel Knight from reaching the Enchantress, and will pursue their mission at any cost.

If you love games with perfect platforming, beautiful art, infectious music, crazy bosses, and real heart… Shovel Knight is for you! If you don’t, then what? How could you not be into that stuff? Keep reading, you’ll come around!
