Is it ever too soon?
Game developer Keiji Inafune asked himself today if it was too soon for him to start his next Kickstarter campaign.
In the minutes following Red Ash's Kickstarter failure, Inafune paced around his office mentally going throug...
Maybe we'll hear some Mighty No. 9 news
Yes, you read that right -- there are two Kickstarters currently underway for Red Ash -- one is for an anime, and the other is for the game. While the latter is now funded by way of an outside publisher for PC, PS4, and Xbox ...
[Obligatory penis joke goes here]
Since The Long Dark was successfully funded on Kickstarter back in 2013, we haven’t really heard much about it. A small update here, a little preview of what’s to come there, but other than that Hinterland has be...
Time is on my side, yes it is
Pitch: Mirror's Edge and Max Payne had a baby who must shoot its way out of an Ikea.

Some Kickstarter backers get it earlier
Harmonix's new Amplitude is being delayed once again, as Kickstarter projects are wont to do.
The PlayStation 4 version will be launching in December for "early access" backers, the studio just announced, with the public rele...
Mighty No[t the concept art] 9 isn't in the best spot right now. All week we've been hearing rumors of a delay into 2016, and I declined to really comment on it until I had done some digging. I can now confirm throu...
Recently, it was revealed that the Red Ash project, a callback to Mega Man Legends, had already secured a publisher mid-Kickstarter campaign. The game is being made. Now, the Kickstarter is solely for "extra" funds and c...
The Banner Saga: Warbands
Stoic released The Banner Saga last year, and it was a great strategy role-playing game. It had characters on a square grid, drama, and lots of death. Basically, it was ripe for conversion to a board game.
Today at GenCon, St...
Considering physical release too
Yooka-Laylee, the Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor that did incredibly well on Kickstarter a few months back, is apparently getting published by Team17. Best known for the Worms series, it has also been publishing indie titl...
Back in the cockpit

Spark the Electric Jester
Step aside, Freedom Planet?
If you’re a Sonic the Hedgehog fan, you may be aware of fangames by the name of Sonic Before the Sequel and Sonic After the Sequel. Developed by Felipe ‘LakeFeperd’ Ribeiro Daneluz, the games were really im...
Mega Man Legends spiritual successor
Keiji Inafune and Comcept are really trying to sell Red Ash: The Indelible Legend, Inafune's follow up to Mighty No. 9 and spiritual successor to Mega Man Legends. Its Kickstarter campaign ends in five days and it is hardly m...
Too little, too late?
Red Ash hasn't become an overnight success for Comcept. Unlike Mighty No. 9, the project is struggling to meet its $800,000 Kickstarter goal, having raised just over half that with 9 days to go.
With the clock winding down, Comcept is trying to turn the campaign's fortunes around, announcing a potential PlayStation 4 release and sharing some early footage of a pre-alpha prototype.
Still hasn't been funded
The Red Ash Kickstarter isn't looking so good, but now it has another weapon up its sleeve to vie for your cash -- a console goal. If the campaign nets $1,000,000, the game will make it to PS4 as well as PC. A recent pol...
It's back from the dark depths of 2013
Back in the foggy past of early 2013, a game called Zombie Playground hit Kickstarter. Being inspired by a popular piece of art by Jason Chan (as seen above and also here), the game promised to feature kids caught up in the z...
Fan remake: Original Shenmue in Unreal 4
Korean modder Kid Nocon began his unofficial HD remake of the original Shenmue last year, before any of us knew that Shenmue 3 would burst onto the scene and become the most funded video game Kickstarter yet.
The update is just weeks away
Hey Star Citizen fans. Are you eagerly awaiting that FPS mode that was meant to come out back in April then got delayed for an unspecified amount of time? I have some good news and some bad news for you. The good news is that...
My vote goes to the anime-looking girl
I'm guessing everyone would agree at this point that Comcept should have waited for Mighty Number 9 to ship before it launched the Red Ash Kickstarter. The game is not doing even a fraction as well as comparable projects had ...
Baby's Day Out 2: Baby gets eaten
Games about pregnancy are more popular than ever. Even the Minions are getting in on the act. Though most of these games are fairly disturbing, few of them are intentionally so. Devastated Dreams, a spiritual sequel to Never...
Most funded video game in site's history
The crowdfunding campaign for Shenmue 3 has drawn to a close, raising a total of $6,333,295.

Assuming it's funded on Kickstarter
"The one consistent theme throughout all of them was that they loved to party."
With that, I'm down to watch Insert Coin, a documentary about Midway (Smash TV, NBA Jam, Robotron 2084) during its prime. Producer Josh Tsui, the...
Both voice actors confirmed
In case you hadn't heard, Corey Marshall, the English voice actor for Shenmue's Ryo Hazuki, is returning to voice the character in Shenmue 3. As of this week, Masaya Matsukaze has been confirmed as well, meaning both the orig...
Too many brokens in this article, help
Broken Age was one of the early successes of Kickstarter, managing to raise $3.3 million of a $400,000 goal. It took a while between the two parts of the game, but eventually Double Fine made good on their promise and Broken ...

But everyone loves Shenmue so it's okay
The Shenmue 3 Kickstarter has surpassed five million in funding with just under a day and a half to go, but creator Yu Suzuki has insisted that they need roughly $10 million to have a fully realized open world.
It's shooting for the stars for sure, but a number of different choices could have been made to bump the campaign up significantly.
I mostly remember Chime as a game that had one super easy achievement worth 50 Gamerscore. It did a thing where proceeds went toward charity, so just buying the game was enough of an achievement, I guess. I was pretty bad at...
'Developmental' footage, of course
While Yu Suzuki may need $10 million to see a "fully realized open world Shenmue 3," he notes that $5 million is good enough to accomplish most of what he set out to do. And it looks like that's what he'll get, as Shenm...
Buy a print before July 17 to support the Kickstarter appeal
Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us concept artist, John Sweeney, has produced an exclusive print to support the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter.
There are eight large prints (24H x 47W) and 100 smaller prints (16H x 31...
What the game may look like
Red Ash: The Indelible Legend isn't having quite as successful of a Kickstarter campaign as Mighty No. 9, which was basically funded instantly. It's currently sitting at roughly $300,000 of its $800,000 goal, and for the game...
Please give my $5M for A la cartridge
While I have my reservations about the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter, which is still not even halfway towards a "true open world," folks have thrown money at it with aplomb. Over the weekend, perhaps spurred by a false sense of freed...
