Kickstarter things (mostly games)

I've been looking into that Kickstarter thing lately, especially for games after all the foofaraw about the Double Fine adventure game that got funded that way.

So far i've contributed to Wasteland 2, an old style post-apocalypse tactical RPG, and "Tales of the Emerald Serpent", a shared world anthology novel by several authors, including marthawells and Lynn Flewelling. Both of those have been successfully funded.

I also just contributed to The Banner Saga, a console style turn based tactics RPG with a Viking theme. That project currently has 8 hours left to go, and if they can get another $23,000 they're going to try to add player owned upgradeable cities, something i'm really hoping they manage. So if a Viking themed turn-based tactics game on PC sounds like something you might want to contribute to as well, have at it :)

I'm also considering contributing to Wollstonecraft, a series of young adult books. To quote the page: "This is the made up story about two very real girls – Ada, the world's first computer programmer, and Mary, the world's first science fiction author – caught up in a steampunk world of hot-air balloons and steam engines, jewel thieves and mechanical contraptions. For readers 8-12. This is a pro-math, pro-science, pro-history and pro-literature adventure novel for and about girls, who use their education to solve problems and catch a jewel thief."
