A.N.N.E Developer Confirms Wii U Version, Regardless of Kickstarter Stretch Goal

May 21st - via:
n recent times we've seen plenty of Kickstarter projects offer up stretch goals for Wii U or 3DS releases, and a number of them have hit those targets. A.N.N.E, on the other hand, doesn't look likely to hit its amended Wii U target of $140,000, as it's resting on just under $90,000 — at the time of writing — with 24 hours to go. Even by Kickstarter standards, a bump in contributions to that scale seems unlikely. (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup

April 28th - via:
Jagged Alliance: Flashback arrives in the Katchup this week. I’ve expected (and hoped for) a Jagged Alliance crowdfunding attempt for some time now. As soon as it became obvious that Kickstarter was a place where old franchises could revive themselves, every week that the mercenaries didn’t appear was slightly more unsettling than the last. Would I rather have a direct sequel without a crowdfunding campaign? Perhaps. (Read More)
