Kickstarter: Cool Stuff
« on: April 17, 2012, 03:05:54 PM »
I thought we could use a thread dedicated to cool things people find on Kickstarter or other pledge services, or for alpha buy-ins, things like that.

To start things off I found a cool looking Kickstarter: The Banner Saga. It's only got a few days left but it's well over it's target amount. Nice looking little RPG that's supposed to be ready in November. They've gotten some nice additions to their team with their overage money so far.

Chris Perrin emailed me to let me know about his new mecha RPG Kickstarter http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/565866321/mecha-combiners

Looks pretty cool.

4 PDF pulp hero books with dinosaurs in them for 10$.  Big-ish name authors too.
What book isn't better with dinosaurs in them (Tom I'm looking at you).

Evil hat is doing a kickstarter for a fiction line set in the Spirit of the Century world.

An FPS zombie survival sandbox game. Haven't checked out much of the updates, looks interesting though.

Project CARS, a AAA crowdfunded multiplatform racing simulation game, good part is that at the end of it you get a piece of the profits, and can play the game as its being developed, and help shape its features. Currently in pre-alpha status, with a release date ~March-May 2013.

Cristoforo: A digital revival of the original Call of Cthulhu game title Font and before that a Classic example of Victorian-Americana Typeface. I backed it because I really like the font style and am a fan of the classic Call of Cthulhu cover art and graphics, also being a graphic designer helped.

Xenonauts is a remake of the original X-Com with the serial numbers painted over (not even bothering to file them of).
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/69341191/xenonauts?ref=category

Looks good.  I'm going to give them 20 bucks.

If you haven't already pledged to support CLANG, time is running down. They've started releasing some of the technical details. Look upon them and believe, ye skeptics!

Here are two I'm supporting
Desktop Ballista.  17 Days to go.  Shoots toothpick sized botls

And Dungeon World RPG. 27 hours to go.  The story game answer to the old style DnD renascence.
