This month’s Kickstarter roundup was going to start off with a big thing about Heroquest, but the Heroquest Kickstarter is currently on hold due to an IP dispute. That doesn’t stop the rest of Kickstarter going strong. It is Christmas however, and I’ve been reluctant to spend as much backing projects this month. Are you feeling the holiday pinch? Is it affecting your Kickstarter spending?
As per usual it’s not fair to look at the exciting new projects without first catching up on some old friends.
- Journey: Wrath of Demons raised a whopping $425,000 managing to achieve many of its stretch goals.
- Unfortunately Firewall didn’t make its funding which is a real shame as I think this looked like a really good little game. Sarcastic Robot has promised to re-launch the project next year and believe they have learnt what went wrong. Firewall raised only $7875 of its $25,000 total but it’s difficult to use that value as many people cancel their funding if they think a project will fail.
- Shadow of Brimstone hasn’t long finished and made over $1.3 million unlocking all manner of weird west miniatures.
- RARRR!!! Almost doubled its funding goal and I’m hoping this game does well enough that we’ll see it in shops.
- Worker Placement was cancelled mere days into its project. Publisher Dyskami issued a statement stating that the by analysing the first 48 hours of the project they could determine that it wasn’t going to be a success and are going to re-launch in the new year.
