    This is a work in progress(on hiatus, permanently probaly).

    The purpose of this thread is to collect signaled interesting projects and all the threads on the Codex related to Kickstarter games and other crowfunding sites.
    The major focus will be on KICKSTARTER and Indiegogo, everyone can signal a project if wants to, however projects that get a news item or are signaled by a staff member have more chances to be listed here, in general a project should be relevant to the Codex' interests or have some other feature that makes it stand out.

    A streetlights code is implemented to indicate the status of the various projects:
    CYAN Game released.
    GREEN Project successfully funded.
    YELLOW Project currently running.
    ORANGE While not being an outright sham the project raised some perplexities.
    RED Project didn't reach the set goal.
    VIOLET Project funded but failed to deliver for whatever reason.




    Quick Links Section
    Here all the links of the currently running projects listed per outline of the various sections with linking to said sections.

    Codex Pet Projects
    Special Mention
    RPGs
    Strategy Gaming
    Space Simulators
    From shooters to RTS plus various hybrids, all space related.
    Graphic Adventures
    FPS/Shooters
    Platformers
    Action Adventures
    Racing Games
    JRPGs
    MMOs
    Puzzle Games


    Retro Gaming


    PnP, Tabletop etc.
    Hardware
    LULZ & Boycott



    Released Games
    For whom wants to check all the released videogames listed in this thread without browsing the various sections.


    Here the list of all funded projects above 100K(DISCONTINUED).
    Addendum:
    A guy kept track of all Funded Videogame Projects above 100.000$.

    With the release of Kicksatarter games another phenomenon emerged, publisher deals, this sometimes can create dramaso here a dedicated section called PUBLISHER DRAMA.


    Section dedicted to allthe projects that failed to deliver for whatever reason: The Undelivered

    A special section dedicated to all those projects that are suspected of being just CASH GRABS.

    Poor double fine adventure.

    FTL's finished (so should probably be marked as so, as it will accept no jewgolds)

    Didn't find Schafer's thread, mind to link it?
    I will follow your suggestion and mark the finished projects.

    I was using the usual color code of traffic lights, I think it woks better, red can be misleading.
    Just because it's you I will add a planned section.

    I don't want to encourage such projects in the least, however, now I have created an apposite section for it and its likes.

    I was also going to suggest a thread like this.

    But please put projects in separate groups, ordered by relevance.

    While for example Wasteland and Banner Saga are almost certain to become finished games, others like Dead Linger and Tortured Hearts are very vague and therefore not that interesting right now.

    Or do you just want to make a list of all kickstarter projects?

    Looks like Banner Saga will end up in the range of 500.000 and Wasteland 2-3 million.
    (April 4)
    Banner saga: 359,314 of 100,000 goal, 16 days to go
    Wasteland 2: 1,928,593 of 900,000 goal, 13 days to go

    Ordering by relevance would be quite arbitrary, I will separate them based on if they have reached the funding goal or not.

    This thread is relevant to our interests. Could he has a sticky so we don't get a billion new kickstarter threads?

    Well, Tortured Hearts is the only one that is practically dead, all the others are well on their way of being funded.

    Not wanting to start an argument here. But on the one hand you say my suggestion of grouping by relevance would be "too arbitrary", on the other hand you defend the exclusion of certain projects as "absolutely objective".

    I am not even disagreeing on the exclusion of the games in question, but your subjective opinion is no more objective than the subjective opinion of anyone else.

    If you really want to make a thread about your taste, under the delusion that it is "absolutely objective", then get on with it .. Alternatively, if you want to make a list of all kickstarter projects (minus tactical shhootan'), thanks but I prefer to use kickstarter.com for that.

    EDIT: I like the LULZ & Boycott section though.

    EDIT2: Why don't you just order the projects by funding level reached, that would practically be the same as I suggested initially (WL2 ~2 million, Banner Saga ~400,000, .. Tortured Hearts 2.000 ), as before separated in groups for funding level reached / not reached, and a third for LULZ etc.

    The criteria are quite obvious, projects that get the Codex' attention, principally projects with a dedicated news post in the apposite section, or threads started by Codexers in other sections of the forum that got enough attention.
    Also, if all the links point to Codex' threads how you ever thought that this was just a list of all kickstarter projects?

    Seeing it's in the GG and not GRPG forum, it seems more appropriate the thread watches all kickstarter games.

    I thought what you were doing was a kickstarter watch, where we could quickly find the newest and most interesting projects.

    If you only want to make an index of the popular threads on the Codex, I'm fine with that. But I might as well use the forum to see which threads are popular.
