Posting in this format would really help the thread:

- Title of the Kickstarter project with link
- Deadline and target
- Short paragraph about the game (you can just copy the first few lines off the kickstart page)
- any pic's/video's would be nice



Example:

Target: $60,000
Deadline: Apr 1

Auditorium 2: Duet is a sequel to the amazing Auditorium. Duet has cooperative mode added to it. It also uses Steam to it's fullest, taking advantage of their matchmaking, multiplayer, leaderboard, and achievements framework; and has Mac and PC support.

I am glad that someone did this thread in an organized way. Maybe you can use the second post for describing each project shortly? It could be helpfull, since people might not want to travel through 2 links just to get to read a page that might have walls of text for something they might not even like. Just as a suggestion. Still, awesome thread!

- Nekro ($100,000 | Ends Apr 4th)

I think that's May 4th.

Nice OP. Didn't know about The Dead Linger and Nekro, will pledge later today. For Nekro, is that a new kickstarter? I didn't find any info. Hope it gets a lot more attention than it is getting now because the concept and the animations look really nice.

I'm really digging some of the games they're got up right now. I think I'll put something towards Banner Saga and Wasteland 2, but for now I put something towards Shadowrun.

I just added to it.

I can e-mail you it if you want.

EDIT: I have not been keeping track of anything with a goal of under $45k. I realize that would not be productive for this thread. Maybe if there were a Dropbox or Google Something that everyone could contribute to?

EDIT 2: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...z?ref=category (NINJA WARS)

Great thread! You should also leave a link for kickingitforward.org, since it is a good source to find game projects. There are already 32 projects listed there and it's growing rapidly.

Well, this was exactly what I didn't need.

I entered the thread having backed only Wasteland 2, Banner Saga and FTL.

I post now having just pledged to Shadowrun, Leisure Suit Larry and Starlight Inception.

I was considering backing the Jane Jensen project until I read this on their kickstarter page: "Jane is known for games with complex, dark plotlines ala Dan Brown." Ah, well then, no thanks.

to my (very limited) knowledge, it's actually a joke

Gabriel Knight 3 came out at the same time as The Davinci Code with a similar premise, yet one was successful and the other was not (at least that's the way I understand it)

It seems weird to have two GAF Kickstarter threads

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=462544

This one seems a lot more organized though

One suggestion. Could you put links to the Kickstarters themselves in the OP instead of just linking posts?

I don't know if it'd be worth it, but I'd also like to see a list of failed kickstarters, not all of these projects succeed, and it might be worthwhile to examine the ones that failed.

Doesn't matter. Your World is actually a really interesting project in this Kickstarter experiment for a few reasons: made by an unknown, highest goal for an indie game ever, and an MMO.

Also: following Your World is like reading a gloriously bad fanfic that gets updated all the time. How else would I know about the livefeed on the 18th?

A great majority of those only pledged so they could troll Bartlett (and boy howdy, are they). You cannot comment on the page unless you donate. They know full well that they are in no danger of actually having to pay anything.

The only reason I have not pledged a dollar is because I'm not that mean.

Awesome thread! We're about to launch our own Kickstarter project for our game Cross of the Dutchman.

We already have a lot going on, but we need the support of the community to really make it happen. Would GAF mind me bragging about the project and how we're doing on the Kickstarter project in this thread?
