Re: Ultimate Kickstarter Video Games Thread

Just watched the kickstarter video of Grim Dawn, Had some gameplay, looked pretty good sort of like a Diablo/Champions of Norrath clone. Looked like a good time.

Wasteland 2
Banner Saga

Thinking about:

Games:

Dead Linger
Grim Dawn
Ravaged

I've backed Double Fine and Wasteland 2 so far. I'm very likely to back Leisure Suit Larry.

I went back and forth on what $50 reward I wanted, the poster or to design a personal in-game crest. I ended up with a crest.

Maybe we all should design a DVDTalk crest?

There's a Kickstarter for remasters of the Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective Adventure Mysteries from the early 90s. For $9 you get the original 9 mysteries (originally released as 3 games with 3 mysteries each):

I put in a pledge, but it doesn't look like it's going to make it.

Hey Guys,

Thank you so much for the incredible response to the game. We're shutting down the kickstarter account but this is by no means the end of Police Warfare. News will be coming.

Darn, I would love this one to make it. I remember these games only slightly, but think they'd be a blast to play with my girls. I pledged $30 to get the PC and iOS versions.

But Groucho is right, this one isn't going to come close to completing.

Re: Ultimate Kickstarter Video Games Thread

The creators of Space Quest, Mark Crowe and Scott Murphy aka "Two Guys from Andromeda" have gotten back together to work on a new space-themed adventure game. They've confirmed on their first podcast that it won't be Space Quest, and that they'll be starting a Kickstarter to fund it:
http://guysfromandromeda.com/podcast...wo-guys-speak/

DVDTalk user Duran had previously posted about the new game, but that was before it was known there'd be a Kickstarter for it:

It looks like Leisure Suit Larry will make it, 4,000 dollars and a week to go. It should pass it today. I'm glad. Meanwhile, Shadowrun looks to make 1.5 million easy, if there wasn't only a few days left, I'd say 2 million would not be out of the question. I still need to put in my money for Shadowrun, but I'm making sure $125 won't kill my bank account.

Re: Ultimate Kickstarter Video Games Thread

Nice article I liked this part:


“Overall, I want to ‘invest’ in a game that I want to play or made by a guy that I adore,” Dent said. “I spoke to/begged David Jaffe recently about using Kickstarter to make a game. I have no idea where he is on that or if he is going to go down that route. My point is that I love Jaffe’s games, so if I were to see that he was setting that up in Kickstarter, I would instantly support it.” This might be the best, or at least safest, use of Kickstarter: The service allows proven talent to create games with a large audience but limited appeal to traditional investors.

LSL did it, and Shadowrun passed 1.5. LSL now looks to try its hand at $750k (which might be too adventurous) and Shadowrun wants a go at 1.75 million. I think Shadowrun has more of a chance to get to 1.75 million than LSL has to get to 750k but I could be wrong. But then again, there is always that push at the end, so we'll see.

Re: Ultimate Kickstarter Video Games Thread

Some general Kickstarter news:

A new, game-specific alternative to Kickstarter is due to launch at this year's E3, called Gambitious:
http://www.gamesindustry.biz/article...o-launch-at-e3

It's launching in Europe first, and the major difference is that it allows profit sharing, making the funders actual investors.

Here's an article critical of the of the service:
http://penny-arcade.com/report/edito...actual-investm


Extra Credits on PATV has an episode about crowdfunding:
http://penny-arcade.com/patv/episode/crowdfunding

That episode references both Kickstarter and Rockethub. I hadn't really thought of Kickstarter alternatives/competitors, so did a search and found this article about 5 various websites for crowdfunding games:
http://www.gamasutra.com/view/featur...n_.php?print=1

Kickstarter definitely seems the biggest, both in general and specifically for funding games.

From the article:

"This very week on Kickstarter, one of the projects bought two iPads for a new iPad title. The forums went batshit vilifying them"

Anybody know which Kickstarter this was?

It appears to be the iOS/Android game Star Command. Here's an article about this controversy:
http://thenextweb.com/insider/2012/0...-and-politely/

Here's their Kickstarter page, where they're offering DLC as a reward, but not the actual game, their reasoning being that they need the game sales to get onto the sales charts in Apple and Android App stores:
