Kickstarter Picks for the Week of April 28, 2014

April 28th - via:
What is this post all about? Well, it should pretty straightforward, but, if there's any confusion, this is where I'll be talking about a handful of Kickstarter projects each week, focusing on a few projects that recently launched and a few projects that are about to end.

If you or your company is looking to fund its very first game release on Kickstarter, there are some unique challenges to overcome.
