Cast Out: Outcast HD Kickstarter Fails

May 8th - via:
Back in the day Outcast aimed for the stars – perhaps even above them – and managed to be surprisingly excellent when you got past its many, many rough edges. The Kickstarter for Outcast’s HD reboot took a similarly ambitious tact (to the tune of $600,000), but it’s sadly fallen short. The Kickstarter’s time on this mortal Internet is now up, and an enhanced remake of the open-world cult classic isn’t happening. At least, not without some other form of funding to back it up (Read More)

Outcast Reboot HD devs concede Kickstarter defeat, admit they should have set a lower goal

May 7th - via:
Outcast Reboot HD was a tantalising prospect—taking the old-school open-world adventure, and dragging it kicking and screaming into the 21st century. To do that, however, the game's creators wanted to raise $600,000. And while they secured an impressive quarter of a million dollars in pledges, with 10 hours to go, they've conceded defeat. Understandably, one of the take away lessons of their campaign is, "we should have set a lower initial goal". (Read More)

Feature: Kickstarter Monthly Round Up - Issue One

April 24th - via:
Crowdfunding website Kickstarter is almost certainly the only location where your laundry simulation game will make you an overnight millionaire. However, with the money lending destination’s games section looking a lot like an ant’s nest of console, computer, and mobile ventures, it can be difficult to discover new projects targeted at Sony’s suite of systems. Fortunately, we’ve got your back, and have rounded up all of the potential applicants, allowing you to spend more of your time dreaming up ideas for your own campaign – like an ironing stretch goal. (Read More)

VR vs. Kickstarter

April 8th - via:
Kickstarter can be a brilliant thing. As an innovative website that lets people pitch product ideas and have fans pledge donations of their choosing, it makes all kinds of unique videogames, peripherals and just about everything else possible when investor’s risk assessments don’t turn out favourably. Not to mention that it allows creators to retain complete control of their vision and, for better or worse, reduces financial pressures upon those makers. (Read More)
