Yes, SUCCESS. That's really all we have to say. We are thrilled, amazed, exhausted, excited... pretty much every emotional and physical state of being all at once. But mostly ecstatic. The Kickstarter ended at over 200% of its goal, totaling $150,745... (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup

March 10th - via:
The winners’ podium is crowded this week, and by those that have been funded rather than the crowds wot have funded them. Hopefully, when the games are actually released, we’ll all be winners though. There are so many success stories this week that I didn’t even make room for the most ridiculous victory of all time. The spiritual successor to Torment took a mere seven hours to reach its total. Lord British, with over half a million in a few days, dreams of success like that. (Read More)


March 8th - via:
Since we have a lot of new backers, and the campaign only has a few more days remaining, we thought it would be a good time to clarify what rewards everyone is getting. So here’s the deal: We ADDED some cool stuff to all of the tiers throughout the... (Read More)

The Video Game Kickstarter Report – Week of March 8

March 8th - via:
It’s a famous computer RPG extravaganza this week! First, we have a spiritual sequel to Planescape: Torment with Torment: Tides of Numenera. It’s not an actual sequel to Planescape: Torment since they couldn’t get the rights, but it has many of the same staff members and takes place in a similar but original setting (intersection between various planes). The kickstarter set a new record for fastest kickstarter to reach $1 million in around 8 hours. It’s currently at $2.1 million so it has a good shot at breaking the all-time record for most money raised in a game software kickstarter (currently held by Project Eternity with just under $4 million). (Read More)

Delver's Drop exceeds Kickstarter goal with a week left

March 5th - via:
Delver's Drop, Pixelscopic's multiplatform dungeon action-RPG, will exist. The project met its $75,000 Kickstarter goal, and currently sits at over $81,000, with seven days remaining. Since the last time we looked in on it, iOS, Android, and Ouya have been added not as stretch goals, but as part of the $15 pre-order tier. Pre-order the game and you'll get builds of all platforms when they become available, starting with PC and Mac around October. (Read More)

The Story

March 4th - via:
Before we get into the long-promised story behind the Drop (or as much of it as we're going to tell right now)... some great news! Over the weekend the campaign went from about $50,000 to over $69,000 in support. This is of course an amazing jump,... (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup – 3rd March 2013

March 3rd - via:
There haven’t been any ‘losers’ in the Katchup for a while, partly because projects that are moving very slowly tend to be removed before they run out of time, and partly because there haven’t been quite as many small projects to cover. The list of ‘players’ is increasing rapidly though and even though the first comment will undoubtedly be from somebody reminded me of a game that I’ve missed, there are plenty of things to see. However, the influx of new entrants is balanced somewhat by this week’s losers. One is a small, surreal project, the other is a grander and more direct proposition. The creators of both have vowed to continue their work in some form. (Read More)

The Kickstarter Game Delver's Drop Needs To Get Made, If Only For Its Wonderful Music

March 2nd - via:
Development on Delver's Drop has been going since before last September, which is when Kotaku spent an entire video calling it "Deliver's Drop." Pixelscopic has turned to Kickstarter for funding, and with ten days left to go they've already got over two thirds of their goal. Looking good, people! (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup

February 24th - via:
Several projects are either on the brink of the precipice of funding failure, or in a prolonged mid-term slump. It’s enough to make a man pre-emptively proclaim the Kickstarter craze dead and buried, but if that same man then casts an eye over the promising new projects and remembers successes and shortfalls of the past, he may well decide to cancel the obituaries, at least for now, and simply play some prototypes instead. (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup

February 17th - via:
Two contrasting success stories this week. Dreamfall Chapters didn’t need a full week to reach its target and come the morning, the first stretch goal will almost certainly have been reached, adding Mac and Linux support. Unwritten needed almost every second to reach its goal but did cross the finishing line with a tremendous amount of support in its final days. (Read More)

Indie dungeon game Delver's Drop goes Kickstarter

February 13th - via:
The early version of Delver's Drop shown during PAX impressed: the dungeon RPG by Pixelscopic had clever "3D" effects and a combination of roguelike and action game style. Pixelscopic is now asking for a bit of help finishing the game (which was just a prototype at the time), with a $75,000 Kickstarter drive. (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)
