Didn't see a thread for this. Figured we could all maybe share some cool stuff we've backed or that we're thinking about.

Reaper's Bones Kickstarter: Currently the 2nd most successful thing in the games category. Ended up being ~250 minis for a $100 pledge, plus a lot of add-on options (paints, extra sets, huge things). For people that didn't get there in time, they're oppening up for latecomers soon (at 150% kickstarter prices, but still much lower than MSRP).

On the same vein, i'm tempted to fund this thing for 28mm scale Demons and Devils. I might wait a bit to see what their $75 level actually ends up getting. I'm perfectly fine with resin, in fact, i'd prefer it, but not for the same prices as metal.

Another interesting table-top game one I found today: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/189 ... ew-science - it's worker placement based; models tech trees by great scientists.

I racked a hefty debt funding a bunch of comic book/movie kickstarters.

Here's a really cool Smart Lightbulb project that actually completely sold out of slots to back it and have over 15,000 orders on a waiting list already: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lim ... reinvented

I'm currently supporting the card game Hull Breach. Which my brother and company
have been developing for over 4 years. It's a tactical space card game with resource
management aspects. I've included the link below.

I am a huge Kickstarter supporter (both in backing and just ideology). I intend to do one for mine and Kiki's comic sometime down the line. In the meantime, here's the projects I'm currently backing that are still raising funds:

Earthward - an all-ages comic by Bryan Q. Miller w/ art by Marcio Takara (3 days to go)
Golem - A very unique and interesting looking steampunk'ish game
Fiz - An 8-bit style sim game where you manage a brewery (12 days left, still unfunded)
Cryamore - Thanks for the heads up Jwalk!

Kinda weird. Up until recently I hadn't backed any video game projects.. Mostly been comics for me.

Here's a couple more cool ones

Project Awakened

yes that is a ninja samurai summoning a tornado that is sucking up cop cars, ingame footage. It's the ultimate super hero maker where you can put whatever powers you want together, modular system, not skill tree based like most games. Finally I get to make a ninja-pirate, the ultimate badass

Rogue System
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/129 ... gue-system

hard core space sim, hard core in that you have to manage all of your ships systems, you can die from lack of oxygen, freezing to death, running out of fuel. Supposed to be the ultimate realistic space sim

Oh Kickstarter! I love causes and communities like this. Honestly, as much as I work for the industry, Hollywood really does need to stop making films. Way too much money is circulated in the industry and way too many hard working people in the industry are being screwed over for the interests of filling the Studio Exec's pockets. They no longer knows how to take risks anymore and it's really cool to see communities like this actually get together to make something they have full creativity over.

Anyways, here's a project for all the Trekies out there. Very low production value, but very cool to see some of the original series actors and actresses participate. Goes to show that you don't need millions of dollars and a huge Hollywood ego to make a great Trek film.
