Genesis Noir, one of the Kickstarters I have highest expectations of, now have a launch date and a new trailer. We will see if the gameplay holds up, but darn that artstyle and music.
An RTS by among others some prolific Starcraft 2 modders.
On the plus side, experienced programmers, great art and music, seems to already have some progress.
Minus, a small amount asked for such an ambitious title which makes me wonder if this is one of these hype creating Kickstarters for something that would be made anyway, or have no chance of being made unless high Kickstarter interest makes a publisher interested so they pitch in real money. I know some of you really dislike that.

SIgn up to watch the project and be notified when it launches:
