In recent crowdfunding updates, I’ve probably not done a fantastic job of hiding my enthusiasm for the Unsung Story project – I’d always have that little bit more to say on it, and my original write up betrayed my long-established interest in Yasumi Matsuno’s games. Considering the project’s recent but strangely narrow funding success, I’ve decided to take a closer look at some of the all too common mistakes made in a disappointing pitch.
The crowdfunding weekly is back and it brings with it the year’s first big name Kickstarter. This week: Playdek seek big bucks for Unsung Story, Yasumi Matsuno’s return to the tactical RPG. It’s also a big week for cute – Project Rain World introduces us to the slugcat (we want one). Meanwhile, Sierra Ops and Sunrider prove that space is still full of mecha, lone battleships facing down entire armies and anime girls. This week on Gaming Crowdfunding Weekly, you will see the tears of time.
