    I have loved everything Tim Schafer has ever done but the money problems are a little ridiculous. Although I appreciate that he is trying to rectify it I'm wondering what has become of the documentary he was promising that half of the original money was going into. The documentary was promised only after he way over achieved his goal because of the excess of funds. I'm REALLY hoping that he has scaled back on that. People pledged their money for a game, not a behind the scenes doc.

    Hi guys! I came across this game called 7 Days To Die. Zombie survival horror game. Very fun by the looks of it. They're on kickstarter and are trying to get greenlighted on steam. Check them here http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/7daystodie/7-days-to-die-zombie-survival-game/ I've already pledged my $35 :)

    What happened to Spy party?

    There was this game being made from a small group in China I believe, I can't remember the name of it, but it was like a Diablo/Torchlight esque dungeon crawler only set in feudal Japan. It was showcased on Kickstarter but I can't remember it. Anyone know of what I'm talking about?

    Nice article, great to have a consolidated update of all these titles of interest. And thanks for mentioning the name of the last slide Lucas!

    Sure thing! I'm nothing if not a The Magical Realms of Tír na nÓg: Escape from Necron 7 - Revenge of Cuchulainn: The Official Game of the Movie - Chapter 2 of the Hoopz Barkley SaGa fan.

    Haha, now Tír na nÓg (charmap has a field day with a name like this) was a great TV show, I wonder if it had a game too?

    A few "big" ones missed: * Torment: Tides of Numenera - the full spiritual sequel to the classic "story and characters over combat" RPG Planescape: Torment, basically a co-development between inXile and Obsidian, it also beat Project Eternity's Kickstarter record. Looks amazing already, but the longest off. * Dead State - Fallout meets XCOM in a Walking Dead-style zombie apocalypse, made by a load of guys who worked on Fallout, Planescape, Baldur's Gate, Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines, Arcanum and more (ex-Obsidian, Black Isle, Troika)? Sign me up. Gameplay video looked amazing. * Armikrog - I consider this quite big, if early in development still. The developer of stop-motion claymation classics The Neverhood and Skullmonkeys making a new claymation title with a main character voiced by Michael Nelson of MST3K. Only barely scraped its funding almost certainly thanks to Earthworm Jim designer Doug TenNapel's homophobic attitude, but that won't affect the game which looks fun already. * Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse - a fifth title in the classic adventure series made by all the original team? How is this not bigger than Moebius? Looks great, looks closer to Broken Sword 2 than the 3D adventuring of 3 and 4, and will be out in a few months, October probably.

    Thanks for this list, I had completely forgotten about Broken Sword 5!

    I'm very happy to see Moebius in this report. I'm a huge Jane Jensen fan, and have been able to play both the early alpha release and the recent beta release of Moebius, and am looking forward to the final game. I'm just wondering if you're correct when you're saying its the first time she's at the helm as a designer since GK3. She's also designed Gray Matter a few years back. I would have liked to see Dreamfall Chapters in this list too. It got funded with over 1.5 million dollars and has garnered a fair amount of interest.

    Funnily enough, I actually care very little about all of these "big" kickstarter games. I mean, I completely understand why they are popular and the biggest blip on the radar. (mostly because of the teams behind them rather than anything else, let's face it) But none of their gameplay concepts or artistic designs feel that attractive to me. Still keeping an eye out of course, but those aren't the kickstarter projects that interest me. In contrast, I've backed both Shovel Knight and Legend of Iya. And have kept great interest in Chasm and C-Wars. All of these are comparatively much smaller projects than the ones mentioned here, but I'll be damned if their pixel-style art isn't much more striking. At least to me. (Also, I find it far more likely that all of these projects will deliver on both their projected release dates, and on their gameplay promises.) Also, didn't back them, but projects like Cryamore and a Hat in Time had far more striking concept art and visuals than most of these games.

    Hat in Time is something I'm looking very forward to.
  • BladedFalcon - July 19, 2013 1:55 p.m.

    Judging by your avatar, I'd be very surprised if you weren't XD
  • MrXLiebezeit - July 18, 2013 3:41 p.m.

    I can't wait for Broken Age. I check the website every day.
  • FemmeFox - July 18, 2013 3:21 p.m.

    I backed the HD "remake" of Pier Solar. An indie retro RPG made originally for Sega Megadrive/Genesis and Sega/Mega CD after the console had LONG been abandoned. The Kickstarter hit it's target and then some and while we don't get too many updates, what we do get shows real progression.
  • GayforGilbert - July 18, 2013 2:32 p.m.

    So far I've backed three projects, Project Eternity, Torment: Tides of Numenara, and Legend of Iya. Provided Legend of Iya gets funded (It's not even halfway through the vetting period), I'm on my way to having copies of four full games all told. Wasteland 2 came as part of the tier I picked for Torment. Hell, the original Wasteland comes with that too, so make it five!
  • BladedFalcon - July 18, 2013 3:37 p.m.

    Yeah! I've backed Legend of Iya as well! That game is looking super cool! ^^

    I don't like to sound like spam, and it's only game-related, but this really needs your support: Spicy Horse (Alice: Madness Returns) is running a Kickstarter for the film rights of the Alice franchise.If you want to see Alice psychonauting the crap out of victorian England's most brilliant and twisted minds, go here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/spicyhorse/alice- otherlands (delete the space before otherlands)
