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.

This is the most exciting PC video game for me since Roller Coaster Tycoon 3! A lot more flexibility in how you can build coasters, create your own flat rides and dark rides. All content will be made easy to share with others. You'll be able to walk around other people's parks as well! There will be peeps in the parks & yes you can ride the rides!

One of the stretch goals is to add an economic side to the game. Hope it gets there! So excited about this project!!! There's also a stretch goal to create a Mac version.

This needs to be a success! Spread the word to any other forums you can think of! Please!!! laugh

Info: Remember Road Rash (1991/8 bit systems)? Where you race motorcycles and beat the crap out of each other with crowbars? This is that, only now. Sounds good to me!

Realm, by Atomhawk Design and Lantern Interactive

Started just two days ago, the goal is 195K british pounds, which is a tad high, but I'm thinking they can do it, if just barely.

I backed them with 15 pounds, since I'd like access to the developer diaries and design documentation, but I won't be paying any more because of how unsure this project is. This is probably my biggest Kickstarter gamble to date.

Among the Sleep, by Krillbite Studio.
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/krillbite/among-the-slee...

An atmospheric horror / suspense game which explores a two-year old child's nocturnal vision of the world? Damn, I'm bought.

With props from people all over the industry it looks like this may be something of an interesting concept.

Stonehearth: A sandbox strategy game with town building, crafting, and epic battles!

Info:
-Radiant Entertainment
-This project will be funded on Thursday May 30, 1:00am EDT.

"Stonehearth is a game about exploration and survival in an epic fantasy setting. Your job is to help a small group of settlers survive and carve out a place for themselves in a hostile land. You’ll need to establish a food supply, build shelter, defend your people, and find a way to grow and expand, facing challenges at every step.

Starting from procedurally generated terrain with dynamic AI encounters, Stonehearth combines city sim and good old combat with infinite building possibilities. It’s built to be moddable at every level, from your city, to the people and creatures inhabiting the world, and will ship with the tools and documentation for you to add your own customizations to the game, and share them with friends.

*The game is equal parts Sandbox, Real Time Strategy, and RPG.

*It will initially ship on PC, but we have a stretch goal for Mac and Linux releases.

*This kickstarter is to fund the single player version of the game. We would love to add cooperative multiplayer and PvP modes as well, and these will appear as future stretch goals."

Jagged Alliance: Flashback

With only 10 days left, and only half way funded, I'm not holding my breath on this one. I just felt that Cold War, Turn-based, DRM free, and Jagged Alliance needed to be added a list of exciting KS projects.

Info: From KS page- Jagged Alliance: Flashback is our vision of returning a once critically acclaimed franchise back to its roots, it's not a reboot, it's a reset! Our main goal is to bring back the tactical turn-based action that the original Jagged Alliance games are known for - the game was a thinking man's game, a thinking man with lots of guns!

With flashback we want to take you back to the cold war era and let you play the events that lead up to the founding of the international mercenary organization called A.I.M.

My take: Turn-based tactics, base management, NPC interaction, character customization, and 1980's Cold War Era prequel to Jagged Alliance-- why hasn't this game been made already?

Son of Nor - The World is Your Weapon


Son of Nor is an award winning and challenging 3rd person action adventure game for Windows, Mac and Linux that can be played in single player or with up to 4 players cooperatively online or via split-screen.

On their mission to stop the impending attack of the Sarahul army the players discover Noshrac's vast desert world. Faced with wild creatures and Sarahul warriors, they will stand their ground in heated battles. These fights are not to be underestimated! Your magic has to be used creatively in order to succeed.

Your abilities, though, can be used as more than just weapons in a fight. As you discover the long-forgotten temples that are protected by clever mechanisms, you'll have to rely on your powers as well to successfully proceed.

These mechanisms are the source of power that many mages in Noshrac are looking for. Succeeding in opening them, frees the magic held within the temple, granting you the additional ability to control the elements of the world and increase your odds against the Sarahul.

Son of Nor consists of fights, puzzles, exploration of the temples and the world. All the while enhancing the player's experience by the diverse story and original lore.

Yes, Double Fine is doing it again. No doubt this will go through the roof like the last one.



They certainly know how to make a pitch video.

So, many have been describing it as Final Fantasy Tactics meets Crusader Kings II. A multi-generational conflict where you are managing bloodlines. Sounds interesting to me. I'm looking forward to it.

This was started last week and it has already made its modest goal of $30,000. Basically to me it looks like this is for those who miss Mario 64 and want a game like it. It will be interesting to see how it turns out.

Now to go to something that does need a little bit of help. Not a video game, but a book about video games. In this case, the history of the Japanese game industry, with lots of interviews. It sounds like it has a lot of potential.

The game combines management with turn-based combat. So you have to set up your base, hire ghost hunters, and upgrade your transportation in between actual ghost-hunting missions. Plus, uh: Ghostbusters!

£8 gets you the game for Windows, Mac, or Linux.

This project will only be funded if at least £7,500 is pledged by Saturday Jul 6, 9:00pm EDT.

Dropsy: A Surreal Exploration Based Adventure Game

Dropsy looks like a super-rad point-and-click adventure game to me! There is very little text: dialog is being handled pictorally, which is an interesting concept. The hand-painted pixel art looks fantastic, and I really like the aesthetic. Plus the creator made me laugh, which bodes well for the game.

$10 gets you the game.

It's another 90s-era classic being brought back in the form of a new game. Syndicate in all but name only. Which pretty much makes it the exact opposite to Syndicate (2012).

My nostalgia cortex is tickled by this, but I am suffering from a little 90s-era revival fatigue at this point. Still, I may end up backing it, depending on how poor I am after the Steam summer sale.

Last Dream looks like a neat send up of old JRPG's.

This is the first kickstarter video game I've considered funding.

I'm mildly interested in the Shadowrun and Double Fine kickstarters, but knew they would fund with or without me and I could pick them up later.

Okay, so it's not exactly Buzz Aldrin's Race Into Space... but it's similar! Race to Mars is an economic/simulation game about launching a mission to Mars. And I think it's going to be very cool! I wasn't completely sold on it until their most recent update, in which they discuss their tech tree (see comment below).

Sword 'N' Board


External image


http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/817647846/sword-n-board-...

Sword 'N' Board is a puzzle adventure with an obvious Zelda-esque inpiration but with some twists. In it you play as Sidd, a kid with an active imagination who battles imaginary enemies throughout cardboard forests and dark pillow fort dungeons. It's a kind of mixture of childhood nostalgia with a little adult humour, that above all tries not to take the player by the hand like modern games use to do: it rewards exploration and trying things out for oneself without being explicitly instructed by the game itself.

Early demo (concept demo, not alpha yet)

Linux (32-bit and 64-bit builds): http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/817647846/sword-n-board-...
Windows: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/817647846/sword-n-board-...

(Mac build awaits a bit of testing to make sure it's not totally broken, poke the project creator if you're willing to do that)

Note:the concept demo mostly shows off the artistic style; mostly you just wander around collecting marbles for currency and take a look in a shop for a few examples of items that will be purchasable. The behavior of low-level monsters wandering around above ground is not representative of actual battles, and the doors to dungeons are all locked as not ready yet.

It's been a bit thin here lately, so maybe I should update with a few I've been looking at.

VIDEO GAMES LIVE: LEVEL 3! Game Composers of the World UNITE

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1916334303/video-games-l...

This is a kickstarter for Video Games Live's 3rd album, which they want to make a studio album. So far, they seem on track to barely make their goal.

For some idea, for those who don't know:

I'll go ahead and put it up here for info, but this game needs no help, other than making it to stretch goals.

【Project Phoenix】 Japan's indie RPG feat. AAA talent!

Really, there need to be a moratorium on kickstarters with "Project" in the title. Anyways, this project is an JRPG made by an international team of eastern and western developers. Its main draw right now is that they've signed on Nobuo Uematsu to do some music for the game.

Personally, I don't think I'll support this one, but I do want to keep an eye on it. It is a bit thin on details, and I do wonder about the "SQUAD-BASED, REAL-TIME STRATEGY" part of the pitch.

I think enough people know about Mighty No. 9 but if you want to back another great action platformer from a company that has made some great games in the past you should check this out.

The third game in the series should be coming out soon for the 3DS, which also has the first two games available, if this new one is funded it will be out for the PC, 360, One, PS3, PS4, and Wii U.

From the creators of College Lacrosse, NLL Lacrosse, Cricket 14, and Rugby League Live comes Lacrosse 14 for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC!

Lacrosse 14 is a console sports simulation where authentic lacrosse gameplay, high quality graphics, multi-year dynasty mode, competitive online multiplayer, real-time RPG leveling, and in-depth character customization are seamlessly integrated and delivered over Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and the PC.

There is just under two weeks to go on this Kickstarter campaign (started 10/31 and ends 11/15). I am a backer and haven't seen it listed on VGG (yet) so I thought I would post it here. It looks like it will be a fun game and this isn't some big corporate project, so I thought it was worth a look (and some VGG publicity)!

The Book of Unwritten Tales 2

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kingartgames/the-book-o...



External image


The original Book of Unwritten Tales was something rare, an adventure game that actually looks good in 3D graphics. This time around the developers want to take the graphics in their engine to the next level, adding projection mapping and more polished camera motion. Plus they will be adding optional side-quests separate from the main story line, which will fit in well in a heavily RPG-inspired series.

There is already enough funding to get this game made, but your pledge will support these cool features to make it even more of a success!
