Crowdfund Bookie, December 2013: Squeaking by

January 3rd - via: joystiq.com
As the weeks go by, the video game crowdfunding space appears to be under a shift of sorts.

Unlike September 2013's $2,211,975 raised, backers in December managed to fund 40 projects, the second-highest number of successful projects in, again, the past seven months. (Read More)

STASIS Digs For Maybe, Possibly Kickstarter Victory

December 3rd - via: rockpapershotgun.com
Update – well, that was quick. ‘Tis funded. It’s going to be a highly stressful four days for Christopher and Nicolas Bischoff, who are presumably right now staring at the big $98,927 number on the STASIS Kickstarter page and praying it’ll tick just a little higher, up to the magic $100,000 that will secure the gothic sci-fi pointerclicker’s funding and future. 56 more people backing the entry-level Digital Edition tier would do it, according to my calculator. Having done some perfunctory maths, I am now exhausted and must sleep for a while. I’ll return later. (Read More)
