have you ever funded a kickstarter? How did it go? I'm considering throwing my money away. tell me about your experience.
I'be backed quite a few things, and most of them have yet to pan out. They all send regular updates and progress videos though. It really depends on the people running the project. So far the only thing I've backed that was released is Among the Sleep, and that turned out pretty well.
This is the only kickstarter I've funded.
I've funded 3 vidya-related Kickstarters and they all ended in varying degrees of failure.
At least I funded LWA2.
I've backed some stuff, mostly /tg/ and /toy/ shit.
pic related just came in a handful of days ago, fuck yea.
The only /v/ thing I've backed was some kind of sci-fi Metroidvania that unfortunately failed a couple months ago, no clue what it was called.
Only thing I have ever backed is this:
Ships July 2015 so we will see then if it was a horrible mistake, but they seem to have their shit together.
I funded the new game called 'Obduction' by Cyan who made the Myst, Riven, URU games and are one of the oldest game makers around, nothing is certain of course but I trust Cyan more than any other company to deliver a good game and I have a real soft spot for the Myst games as they were the first I played on PC.
I also wanted the limited edition rewards that come with pledging like the boxed game, art work, t-shirt, poster and stuff.
Planetery Annihilation - They delivered on all of their promises, apart from the fun part. It's a perfectly functional game, it's just incredibly boring.
Pillars of Eternity - Looking good, we'll see how it ends up when it releases in a month.
Well, I've backed Armikrog, by the Skullmonkeys guys, Asylum, by the Scratches guys, and Among the Sleep, which released. They were all pretty legit to begin with. I also backed A Hat in Time, which seems to be chugging along.
I did a couple Indiegogos too - Skullgirls, DreadOut, and A Ghost of a Tale. Skullgirls and DreadOut are done, and A Ghost of a Tale is by a former Disney/Pixar animator, so I guess I just never felt like my money would be wasted.
Nah, Bones II.
Pic related is what came in the Bonesylvania KS Core Set.
i Actually own wasteland 2. i didn't know about the kickstarter. i just heard good things. I enjoy it a lot, and it's thanks to people like you that got it going.
so thanks for the risk
Only Kickstarters I've backed have been Little Witch Academia and Pillars of Eternity. I know the people working on the projects, I know what to expect, and I have a reasonable belief that I'll like the end result.
Everything else can get fucked.
I missed Fallout 1 and 2 and thought to myself that a modern game of similar style would be pretty cool if done well. Honestly, it and Divinity: Original Sin were my two contestants for game of the year last year, with Wasteland 2 coming out in front by a bit.
I am sorry you didn't like; I am curious why though. Not into isometric, didn't like the characters, the story, the gameplay?

The gameplay felt like a chore at launch. The multiple patches made things a little better, but combat often became standing around trading shots for twenty minutes until something died. It also felt that unless you were running only a specific handful of archtypical character builds you were purposely gimping yourself.
The heavy recycling of story points and areas from wasteland one felt less of a homage and more retreading their old work, especially with the base chochise AI suddenly being the actual end boss.
I've backed /tg/ stuff like this guy >>283710907 , waiting for my bones 2 order to come in too.
Not been let down so far since you usually see what you're going to get and the price is pretty good.
Backed Castle story and Planetery Annihilation, the former I was fine with but I had no interest in PA once it was released. It was unrealistic to expect something as good as Forged Alliance from it.
yes I have
it was a good and bad thing
