For some reason, I kind of wish that game had traditional combat for the sheer absurdity of the idea; imagine a two-year old 3rd person shooter where the kid has to make use of squad tactics to survive. I'm an idiot sometimes.

I have a toddler. There is nothing absurd about this suggestion.

As a 90's kid, I fondly remember the days spent on my N64 playing Super Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie and all sorts of 3D platformers. And so, I'm happy to see the genre being revived through Kickstarter.

The game looks extremely charming, and I backed it without any second thoughts.

You've been sucked out of the airlock into the black. Roll all the dice on the table for damage.

I am personally not much of a Dr Who fan (the current series annoys me to no end) but though people might get a kick out of this. 30k for a 1 foot square box into space seems a bit low honestly so buyer beware.

Cthulhu Wars is a competitive strategy game in which 3 to 5 players produce cultists and monsters, build mystic gates, and awaken Great Old Ones. The players earn spellbooks, try to destroy their enemies, and capture their bases. Each faction has its own unique set of monsters, spells, and its own Great Old One(s)

One of the most popular board/card games from Russia is coming to North America. I think the art is fantastic. I didn't have a kickstarter account but created one to back this. About a week left. Check it out.

Note: I'm tempted to back Cthulhu Wars. I love board games and this looks really good but $140 + $45 to ship to Canada for me is really steep to get this game. Much cheaper for me to wait for the release i'm thinking. It's not like they are in danger of not getting funded.

Not really a kickstarter, but close enough
Bundle of holding +4 is a for charity indie game bundle. (Pay what you want)

At base it's Psi*Run, Witch: The Road to Lindisfarne and How We Came to Live Here
if you pay more then the average  persons you also get  Do: Pilgrims of the Flying Temple and Monster of the Week.

http://bundleofholding.com/index/current
I'm getting just for Psi*Run and Do. The rest is just gravy.

Just a couple of thoughts on the campaign page...

Anyway you guys can embed or clearly link to the video on the front page?  That is the first thing I look at when throwing money at a film project - i.e. can they put together an engaging video.  Making me click into the gallery (the horror) to know if there is a video is a lost conversion for most folks.

Also, throwing some of the plot into the video may be beneficial or at least something that makes the viewer sit up.  It also wasn't clear where they are in the process.  It feels like pre-pro, however their facebook page makes it seem like they are in production?  The further along you are, the more likely I am to pull out the wallet.  They keep mentioning that the production is innovative, how so?

Third - although Vimeo has a certain audience / quality aspect, youtube is the 2nd most used search engine in the world.  I would consider posting the video there with a couple keywords targeted.  I didn't see a version of it there after a quick poke.

The video trailer is literally the top thing on the Indiegogo page so I'm not sure what you're talking about.

I chose not to use Youtube because I could not set up an account for Shadow Bound - it insisted on a person's name. It wouldn't let me pick ShadowBound Web Series or anything like that.

When I went to the page last night, the top was the shadowy face picture vs. the video. Shrug
