There are lots of campaigns now that look like they probably might get funded, but it’s far from guaranteed.
NightHawks, the Vampire: Bloodlines inspired story based RPG by Richard Cobbett plus Dave Gilbert and Wadjet Eye, is around 2/3rds funded at almost $80 000, with 8 days remaining. Richard has hinted he has some very cool stretch goals in mind, but they won’t be revealed until the game is funded. Personally I think famous guest writers is a likely one, to help make the game bigger with more quests and more stories. They have a free demo to download now if you are on the fence.
This one looks intriguing. Retro synth music and cyberpunk setting, stylish comic-book style graphics.
Encased, the Wasteland/Fallout 1&2 style isometric turn based RPG by ex Larian folks (thanks @Kiril) is almost 75% funded, 18 days remaining.
The Darkside Detective: Season 2 also around 75% funded with 14 days to go.
Virtual Cities has hit its first stretch goal, so now another 5 cities will get their own chapters in the book. I’m just in a discussion with Konstantinos which city I want included as my backer reward. Many of the most obvious ones are already confirmed as included (Rubacava from Grim Fandango, Sigil from Planescape: Torment, a few other great ones that I’m not sure have been publicly confirmed yet…). So I’m currently leaning towards Neketaka from Pillars of Eternity 2, or maybe Santa Monica from Vampire: Bloodlines as my chosen chapter. You can still back it if you want them to hit further stretch goals…
Also I have been playing several Kickstarted games lately. We Happy Few was a bit of disappointment, it’s not a bad game, parts of it are actually good, but the good parts are all stretched so thin, and lots of the gameplay mechanics are lacking (stealth especially). Bard’s Tale 4 and Pillars of Eternity 2 on the other hand are both excellent.
Little Bug, one of the small indie projects from Fig that has been in development for years just got released. A puzzle platformer, looks like it might be quite good judging by reviews, but could use some word of mouth or it will sink without a trace in the eternal Steam flood.
Starflight 3 didn’t make it.
