So I was looking at old kickstarters to see if there was any news from the damn near dead ones. Stonehearth is still crawling. The Mandate is dropping updates and had to completely rework the combat system.
The metacritic average for the 50 most funded kickstarters is climbing up. It’s at a 74 now. That puts it at the top range of mid-tier large publishers, and right below Nintendo and Telltale. Valve and Blizzard are much higher. Yooka-laylee and Thimbleweed Park are coming soon.
As more games leak out, we’re getting a higher % created. It’s now at 56%. I imagine it will creep into the mid 60s by the end. The average release time is now 2 years (thanks Torment!).
The most interesting news of the set is that Homestuck Adventure may actually see the light of day.
