General thread about kickstarter/kickstarting/crowdfunding & crowdfunded games that might not merit their own threads...

I was thinking about it the other day and I've actually funded a fair few games (but never at some silly reward level / pledge amount) - at some point I'm going to be in more betas and have more games to play than I know what to do with!

Games funded:
Project GODUS - I hope they don't fuck this up. I was a massive fan of the golden age of god games and black and white was one of my favourite games (ever?!).
Camelot Unchained - The artwork and stuff for this looked awesome and hopefully it'll be an MMO that actually manages to do something genuinely innovative with an MMO. Mostly sold from their 'foundation principles' - the manifesto of their game!
Armikrog. (still running!) - Kudos for making a game out of clay and looks pretty interesting. Was also a big fan of the Earthworm Jim game.
MASSIVE CHALICE (still running!) - Loved their kickstarter video and mmmm strategy.
Stonehearth - missed the kickstarter but pledged via PayPal instead. Strategy/Civ building game that looks a bit like minecraft but with some black & white style mini-quests in a procedurally generated world.
Maia - seemed like a pretty cool strategy game from what I saw and scratches that 'god game' itch once again
Prison Architect - Don't think this was kickstarted but it's Alpha access for a non-publisher-published game and this one

Oh...I've also funded a couple of tech projects too:
Micro Phone! (currently running!) - http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/micro-phone-the-tiny-mobile-device-with-a-big-idea
Mu Thermal Camera - because TEMPERATURES. If nothing else, it allows me to see like predator and having worked with some £70k-140k plus thermal cameras they're pretty cool. http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/mu-thermal-camera-a-great-tool-to-save-on-energy-costs/x/1618859

Any games that anyone else has funded? Feel free to post news/information/thoughts on games here or feel free to start a specific thread for any of the games!

Yeah, since I can't pledge directly with a credit card, I only pledged on projects that allow PayPal. So far, I pledged on Wasteland 2 and Dead State. Really looking forward to the latter.

Apparently I'm a complete sucker for god/DF style games

Also, anyone who's played Spiderman 2 should back the energy hook KS, it's the guy who designed the ridiculously good web swinging mechanic.

Missed the kickstarter but can still pledge through paypal. Would there be much point since it's reached it's goal, apart from getting the goodies? I suppose from their perspective they'll still be building up a market base.

Anyhow, in many ways the best thing about Alice: Madness Returns was it's style and artwork

Interesting project

Sounds a little like the game Deadly was talking about (Artemis) but maybe more specifically for Internet play and it will be on Steam

Updatening:
- Prison architect: development is ongoing and the game seems to be shaping up pretty nicely but I've not really played it for quite a while
- Godus: they fucked it up for a while but seems like it's getting back on track, last time I played a few months ago it was fairly enjoyable (with less clicking!)
- Maia: was worried about a lack of updates but a new update was posted last week and it seems to still be progressing
- Stonehearth: had completely forgotten about this, lost interest in it and forgotten what the game is even about

New ventures:
- Human resources: Graphically looked very good and looks like something genuinely original in the RTS space
- Clockwork Empires: Worth following just to read their very fun & informative blog posts. Game is fun but crashes quite a lot
- Satellite Reign: Used to play syndicate a lot and this is basically a reboot of that with more
- Parkitect: holy smokes - rollercoaster tycoon remake
- Kingdom Come: Deliverance: already forgotten what this was about
- No Pineapple Left Behind: theme hospital, in a school, with pineapples

Also, for city building it's worth having a look at Cities Skylines

Hardware wise, backed the 'Coolest Cooler', 'Geco Hub' and a carbon fibre wallet.
