Independent development house Yanim Studio has announced that they have have successfully secured the funds necessary for the development of their platformer Red Goddess. The project is supported by more than 700 people with donations that exceeded 32 thousand dollars.
Strategy turn based game Duelyst and its Kickstarter campaign in which the development team asked for $68,000 to finish up the development of the game have successfully finished the first part of the story. Now, a week after the start of the campaign developers can breathe easier because more than 2,000 players provided the necessary funds.
On the website Kickstarter, a new campaign of raising finance to complete the "open-world 3D voxel-based RPG" titled Planets³ (pronounced "planetscube") was started. Mentioned title combines RPG experience with the construction and exploration of the universe built from small voxels, or block size of 25 cm³.
Main motive for players to become willing to financially support a project on Kickstarter is to have a good concept, and developer team called comcept USA obviously succeeded in that. Head of the team is Keiji Inafune, the creator of legendary Mega Man.
According to information presented by Jonathan Lau, campaigns on Kickstarter collected six times more money than those on Indiegogo.
Lau has conducted his own research by collecting information on the number of campaigns, failed campaigns, collected money and a variety of other information on the most popular pages used to collect money for various projects.
Over the weekend we heard about an interesting project on Kickstarter that has caught our attention and imagination (while they are hoping to catch some of your money). The project is the brain child of science fiction writer Neal Stephenson and is a motion based sword combat game with the apt name of Clang (anyone else hear the black knight from Monty Python getting hit on the head?) The game will delve into the long sword fighting style as an arena combat game.
