    That Kickstarter was an incredibly disorganised mess. There was a lack of follow-through on promised updates ("We're working on a big update for tomorrow." *5 days later, no still update) by the game's developers and barely any communication in general from them. What's more there was a lack of transparency, the developers were so secretive. Small wonder why many believed it to be a scam.

    I would not have touched this project with a barge pole.

    Slightly relevant, I'm kickstarting this cute little art project. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...just-the-women Injected two $15 pledges in, gonna commission Cate Archer from NOLF and either SHODAN or Viktoria...likely SHODAN as she's more recognizable.

    As a long-time fan of the Battle Isle series (I have them perma-installed), I am kicking the SHIT out of THIS.

    I loved History Line as a teenager, but when I tried to replay the game after it came out on GOG (or, if ZB is watching, GoG ) I couldn't get back into it. The controls were just so amazingly unwieldy!

    Picked up on this from from RPS, I'd love to see more games with art in the art direction.

    Just saw that and tried to get to the IGG page, but it doesn't load. I wouldn't be surprised if half the internet is there right now. Seriously, I want to make this game happen. Watching the trailer, I thought two things: Redwall and Morrowind. What could be more perfect.

    You beat me to it! I read about that on the way to work this morning and thought hell-yeah, what all us SAIS fans have been waiting for...a sequel...finally!

    In my opinion they probably should have developed the game a bit more before submitting it to Kickstarter though. What they've got there looks really Alpha compared with other popular titles on kickstarter -- at least the ones that I have seen anyway. I mean, there's not much to look at yet and Ikka isn't exactly the most entertaining presenter I've ever seen. I wonder why Aardvark didn't jump on as well.

    Anyway, looking forward to this and I've put down some cash towards their efforts. I like the idea of the 3D navigational maps and am hoping that they might consider doing this for combat as well. It would definitely make the Urlukai or Zorg battles very challenging.

    Doesn't look like that's going to happen

    Besides Dreamfall Chapters, I'm supporting DreadOut (link to the playable demo there too), basically because I just want more Fatal Frame.

    One more non-videogame project: Chapeau Claque, a new album of (generally) cheery German music.

    They also stick to their promises.

    They still want to do it; it's just not going to be their next project after Episodes.

    I got my $100 backer award for kickstarting 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 (aka Barkley 2).

    I wish I knew about that game before the Kickstarter ended because I would have happily helped fund it. I think it's going to be great.

    i've been watching the ToG streams and everything, and they've improved a ton since the original Shut Up and Jam Gaiden. Have you played that at all?

    I'll tell you what I'm NOT gonna back, Shadow of the Eternals

    I loved Eternal Darkness and MGS: The Twin Snakes, but HAHA, NO. Not in a million years will I give Denis Dyack any money directly.

    Further reading:-
    There's no guarantees that Precursor will use your money to actually make the game.
    It uses "flexible funding", so they get your money regardless of whether they meet their funding goal or not.
    They're taking instant payments through Paypal and not using a middleman with "insurance" in place to protect backers like Kickstarter and Indiegogo.

    Precursor is using art assets, computers and other equipment purchased from Silicon Knights.

    I played the original a few months ago and really enjoyed it. I haven't been following the development of the sequel, actually, but what I've seen looks great so far.

    Now they've launched a 2nd kickstarter campaign, to run simultaneous with their crowdfunding campaign.

    These guys are really kind of strange, and starting to look a little desperate.

    I saw that earlier. Their argument for not using Kickstarter before is that it's only available in US and Canada. How that explains the countless KS campaigns by studios located in neither country? I'm guessing you'd be forced to use USD or GBP. (Frankly I'm glad that USD is the standard for KS, because screw the high valued Euro by comparison).

    The Spintires kickstarter is up, and pricey as hell! 40 pounds for a copy of the finished game! Then again ST is most defenitely a niche title, and at a £40 000 goal I guess they're hoping that a thousand off-road-trucking-sim-starved weirdoes will chip in. And you know what? I'm one of those off-road-trucking-sim-starved weirdoes. Spintires has been one of my most anticipated titles since I first played the 2011 demo a year ago. Backed!

    The supplied tech demo is great but in the end it was the gameplay description that swayed me to part with my money.

    The wild off-road adventure begins in Russia, circa 1980-90. You are supplied with a soviet truck and a set of primitive tools for navigation. The task is to collect and deliver logs from deep within the wilderness, ready for shipment abroad. First, you must load the truck with the logs using the supplied claw crane, then using a map and compass you need navigate to your objectives with the logs secure to complete the objective successfully. Plot a course and navigate using landmarks whilst trying not to loose your precious cargo, becoming stuck in the mud or depleting all of your fuel reserves. Plans accordingly so that you can pass a fuelling out-post and stop by when required.

    Having to plan out the route, getting use a crane to load on cargo and having to navigate by using landmarks? Aww hell yeah.

    I would encourage one and all to check out the playable Tech Demo, available via Oovee's website. Worth trying out even if you're not interested in off-road-trucking, simply to check out that gameengine. Seriously, it's a great engine. Loads fast, runs and looks great. And the mud, water and vegetation physics are top-notch.

    "Who would even buy this?"

    "That henke fellow on TTLG's a guaranteed sale."

    "That forum's still around?"

    "Gotta keep the Thief fans off the street somehow."

    You know you're downloading the demo just like I am right now. We might make fun of Henke for his weird taste in games, but physics trucks are a weakness we all have.

    Actually, futuristic racers are my weakness, and have been ever since I got Wipeout XL as my first Playstation game a whole half my life ago.

    Wipeout games were always nice tech demos for Sony systems at launch.

    Someone at Sony must've had a conscience though since they recently closed their Cambridge studio responsible for copypasting the same tracks over and over since the '90s. Now if only Namco would do the same for their Ridge Racer team.

    I've got to be honest here guys - I just don't get it. I don't understand what itch these games scratch. Go for a real drive, it's not like these are racing games where you're doing something you absolutely can't in real life - go drive on some country roads.
