There is little point in making that kind of big list.
Lowyhong is aware of most, if not all of those already, so they're either on the 1st page list already or he decided not to put them there.

It's far better to just point to a new KS project you find interesting and say why you find it interesting than throw in a huge list without any explanation.
Anyone know how to delete an indiegogo campaign? I was reading my email and was given advice on how to raise money for 2 of my campaigns... xD

Ooh, that looks cool. Starred for now. And they got Jeremy Soule! Awesome.
VLC for the new Windows 8 User Experience ("Metro")

Currently at £10,610 out of a £40,000 goal. The most interesting fact about it is found in the risk section.
A major benefit of this subproject will be a working mingw environment for all the other projects with their roots in the UNIX/Linux world.

Looks interesting. Sounds like ME except with more meat and detail ;). Soule onboard but nothing on the tiers about the soundtrack ...
And what looks like an epic episodal series of games from what it looks like.Backed :)

Infinity Wars, FORCED and Paradox Vol 1 all funded succesfully. And because of $28 Alpha Colony failed to get funded...

The soundtrack option is physical-only at the moment and starting with the $500 tier. I hope they put some digital options cheaper

AstralWanderer: MMO only but still likely to be of interest to RPGer's:

Pathfinder Online: A Fantasy Sandbox MMO (Jan 15)

lowyhong: Yeah I saw that yesterday, but nah. Not gonna add it. The entire project feels like a quick cash grab from the Pathfinder community.
Can you explain what you mean? Did you consider the Shadowrun games a quick cash grab from the Shadowrun community (and so on for other projects with established communities)?

My problems is more that the MMO subscription structure do not fit will with crowdsourcing. I know there is the whole patron thing, but when I pledge I do want a little more in return then a months free play - even the highest tier ($1000) only grants you 3 months play time. (I remember when LOTRO launced, you could at least have to option to become a life time subscriber (around $200?)). If I helped fund a MMO I would at lest expect a little more rewards then they are offering. If you pledge a lot you may help them stress test it with an early beta invite...

From what i read looks more like post apocalyptic Dead State meets Tower Defense, sharing several features with Dead State: party management, base building, world exploration, and adding the Base "tower Defense". Looks very interesting, but as several others from unknown studios lacking in PR visibility (didnt even got mentioned in weekly KS katchup for the second week)

No, but I find it difficult to recommend projects that have the backing of private investors + $300k from the public, especially when they're asking for $1m five months later for a subscription-based game - just a few reasons amongst others.

Anyway, OP's just been updated. Lot of good projects added to the list today, so have a gander folks.

Yeah it's rare to see a Kickstarter come this close to meeting its goal, only to fall shy of a few dollars before the deadline hits.
