lowyhong, you do a great job keeping the OP updated. Kudos to you, good sir (or madam).
Thanks!

Putting this here first in case I forget to add later.

Zoltan999: Have you checked out Strike Suit Zero? http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/43153532/strike-suit-zero This is one other that looks to be doing well, and I backed..
Looks gorgeous, but I'll probably stay out - I'm never going to have time to play it along with all the other stuff I've pledged to.

ArchonPC: ...I asked Slade Villena about a DRM free version and this time it's OK :
@Astral Wanderer : that's an unexpected move, isn't it ? :D
I'm gobsmacked - did someone hit him over the head recently? :)

However he has some gall saying : "Tired of having to buy a game over and over again? Mercenary Games would like to offer you a simpler gaming investment. " when this is his second KS and third crowdfunding campaign for the same game. I'll give this a miss - not least since I've got Skyjacker and Kinetic Void to look forward too.

lowyhong: Dude I'm not going through this list, so I'll leave it up to you to pick out the best of the lot and recommend them to me.
*cringes*
OK, the three I'd single out would be Gemblo, Aldarok (probably more for its artwork) and Mercenary Dark.

And thanks again for keeping this thread up-to-date - despite all the money it's costing us!

PS: Malevolence backers may want to check out the forum if they've not already done so - lots of info like the I found a thing! thread.

As I told him, $50,000 will be a tough run. I'm not sure the 467 backers from the first run will invest more on FleetCOMM. We'll see...

Is there some news about Skyjacker ? I saw some Digitilus comments on Divine Space KS but nothing about their own game.
It is 1939, a war is showing up as a possibility in Europe, and the U.K. goverment decides to organise its most intelligent people in an operation that was so secret that it only was revealed decades later and even today most people don't know about it.

This is the real-life story of what gave inspiriation to the James Bond novels, of what made the very PC, laptop, tablet or whatever you use possible.

It is the story of Alan Turing and eight thousand other people saving the world, and of what happened to their workplace afterwards.

Without them, the invasion at the Normandy never might have happened, Hitler might have stretched on the war for a few more years and completed his genocide in Europe. And then the Russians might have raped every woman they find, conquering Europe, ultimately - in the Cold War Crisis - culminating in the end of the world. Although this fictional scenario is not described in the book. :-)

Last piece of news I heard from them was that they closed off the crowdfunding campaign on their website. Looks like they're going full speed ahead soon, cap'n.
Oh boy this looks great:

The Ars Magica KS updated their front page with a concept screenshot showing the dialogue UI: https://s3.amazonaws.com/ksr/assets/000/234/352/a073f5921ec585f11eac0baa8d0ede85_large.jpg?1351564287
Maelorum's project page now has a link to excerpts containing the rules and character introductions. Has been there for a while apparently, but he didn't mention it until now.

I guess if I liked survival horror I would be thrilled at the proliferation of these titles, but since I don't it just feels like "oh, no, not one of these again." :)
