Android Kickstarter Wrapup: Top Five Android Kickstarters of July

August 7th - via: gamewoof.com
Kickstarters have an interesting life. Developers prepare what they can, put everything on the line depending on the goodwill of the crowd and then if successful, disappear for months or even a year while the developer tries to make good on their promises.

Kickstarter Projects You Should Pay Attention To 10th Edition

May 22nd - via: igameresponsibly.com
Pardon our tardiness. This week has been chock full of Xbox One related happenings. As a result the flood of information has left us in a state of exhaustion. We did happen upon a few fabulous new additions to our first double digit Kickstarter Spotlight article. That’s right, two and a half months worth of great projects that are trying to raise capitol to self publish games that larger publishers, for some reason, won’t touch with a nine foot pole. Which is confounding because, in general, publishers are more open to new ideas at the beginning of a console generation. It’s also looking like indie developers won’t be self publishing to Microsoft’s Xbox One console. So it’s a good thing crowdfunding is alive and well. Let’s clear the dark clouds away with a bit of sunshine. This week we’re all over the place genre-wise with our first MOBA as well as TBS, and side scrolling mayhem. (Read More)
