Talking Point: The Blurring Lines of Kickstarter Fundraising Goals

April 12th - via:
If you go back just a few years, the idea of developers raising funds for non-existent games from the consumer marketplace may have seemed to be a wacky proposition. The thinking may have been along the lines of "ask consumers to pay for a game that isn't even in development yet, yeah right!" Yet that's exactly what's happened in the past couple of years on the Kickstarter fundraising platform, which was initially limited to North America but, in relatively recent times, has become open to interested parties in the UK and elsewhere. (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup – 10th February 2013

February 10th - via:
In terms of anticipation and dollars pledged, this has been the week of Dreamfall Chapters but you already knew about that one, right? The Katchup concerns itself with all Kreatures, great and small, and there are plenty of newcomers this week, including Tom Hall’s keen platforming tools, Projects Awakened and Cornerstone, the mad and possibly brilliant Ritual Dementia and gorgeous light-speed drifter, Race The Sun. Some projects are teetering on the brink of failure but, as we have seen with the adventure game in the past, any news reports of Kickstarter’s death are entirely premature. (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup – 3rd February 2013

It has been a week of travel, talk and teamwork for me, as I visited the Paradox Convention, met good people and then cursed loudly as they defeated me in everything from The Showdown Effect to Europa Universalis IV. (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup

January 27th - via:
This week, spaceships are constructed, nobody loses and the Katchup features an open source 3D engine Linux port, which certainly sounds like the sort of thing that should be happening but also makes me realise how little I know about the availability of engine licenses and the complexities of game development. Maybe I’ll ask Jim to teach me, although I reckon most of his input on Sir, You Are Being Hunted involves polite requests for ‘more robots and tea’. (Read More)

The 90s Arcade Racer: vibrant racing action makes a Kickstarter pit-stop

January 21st - via:
While the title is clearly sticking to nostalgia’s slipstream, there’s a lot to appreciate about The 90s Arcade Racer’s Kickstarter bid. Especially after the numerous attempts of old-school developers to cajole money out of fans by looking at a camera with nothing but their empty pockets and saying, “remember how good games used to be? Remember your credit card details? Exactly.” (Read More)

Linux Support and Rewards changes.

January 19th - via:
Added Linux support. After receiving some valid criticism about pricing the reward for the digital downloadable version a bit steep at £15 I decided to remove it and set a new one at £10. People that have already pledged for the £15 reward can... (Read More)
