Kickstarter Spotlight - Projects You Should Pay Attention To 10/4

October 4th - via:
So, you may have noticed we didn’t use crowdfunding in the title this week. Well smartass, that’s because all our projects were pulled directly from Kickstarter. Allllrighty then. It’s time for another week of crowdfunding goodies from the throbbing loins of Kickstarter. Fun fact; Kickstarter projects have raised over $815M to date. That being said, projects like the one’s we’re covering this week are asking for a drop in the bucket, so come on, pledge! We’ve got a tasty mix of new games on hand this week AND some updates on projects we’ve talked about in the past. (Read More)

Crowdfunding Projects You Should Pay Attention To 9/20

September 20th - via:
So, remember last week when I tentatively set this week’s article for Thursday? Well, it’s now Friday, and here we are. That’s why I didn’t make any promises, it keeps me from breaking them. A smart way to live one’s life. We had a fantastic time at NYGC13 and I wanted to thank the fine folks at DMW for throwing the event. Kickstarter was brought up several times throughout the many discussion panels we attended. Most notably, Howard Tsao of Muse Games spoke on a panel about the emerging platforms developers have available to them. I grilled with him afterwards about bringing Guns of Icarus Online to the PlayStation 4. Moving right along we have an absolutely stacked week ahead of us. We’ll be harkening back to two project creators we’ve worked with in the past as well as tapping our inner mutant for some pigskin action. (Read More)
