Haven't seen anyone mention Kaiju Combat:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/14214732/kaiju-combat-giant-monsters-awesome-fighting-onlin

This time they've got a whole community site to get hyped for it, new original monsters, and a lower funding goal. I'd really like to see it succeed.

If you're a fan of Godzilla, fighting games definitely worth looking into.

It's funny. I actually saw it while browsing Kickstarted Games, and thought, 'Cool the team's restarted their Kaiju Combat campaign.' Then I realized the full title was 'Kaiju Combat - Giant Monsters. Awesome Fighting. Online.' and thought it was going to be an online-only game, not realizing they had a LAN option in there :P

Thanks for bringing this up, will add it on Sunday.

Cool.

Yeah, if it gets funded, the devs said since it'll be DRM-free, so it'll likely get a GOG release too!

AstralWanderer: Now if only he could get Jeff Easly, Clyde Caldwell and Keith Parkinson to collaborate on a mega-artbook... *drool*
Alas, Keith Parkinson is dead.

Those postages on the Elmore artbook are insane. I'll pick it up once it's on Amazon.

gandalf.nho: Maelorum, an epic Gamebook, already achieved the minimum goal and is in the last 32h
Speaking of gamebooks, there's a kickstart for a Fighting Fantasy documentary: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mmbroadcast/turn-to-400-the-fighting-fantasy-documentary-film

Has this been mentioned? Moments of Silence

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2136199701/moments-of-silence

It has the best description of a game seen on KS yet:

"Perhaps Moments of Silence would best be described as a satire for futurists interested in string theory."

Yes, I found that out shortly after making that post - very sad to discover but old age seems contagious. :(

His artbooks are still available on his site and via Amazon (Kingsgate and Spellbound on Amazon.co.uk) for those interested.

From what I've seen of the USPS rates, he's just passing their charges on. But for the patient (and those not interested in the limited editions), Amazon, eBay or his web store would seem a better bet.

Sadly, he died of Leukemia at the the age of 47.

A complete artbook (or more of a series) of the older D&D art would be appreciated. I have collected most artbooks of the 70-90's D&D art, and even those books combined are missing a lot of art.

AstralWanderer: I can't see any reason (aside from avoiding processing fees) not to provide an Amazon payments option for UK projects
I can see a big reason (apart from Amazon UK perhaps not supporting this the way the US one does, which I'm not sure about). They probably want to open Kickstarter to more countries in the future. They can't count on Amazon providing the service for every country, so they would eventually have to create their own system. Might as well do it now, instead of having another intermediate step.

Also using Amazon is a liability. If the Amazon service fails (which happened a few days ago), Kickstarter can do nothing about it. If pledges don't go through because of Amazon's system, again, Kickstarter is helpless. I'm sure that Kickstarter would rather have its own system over which it has more control. (And of course it could cut itself a larger cut, and optionally give project creators a larger cut.)
Maia update #9: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1438429768/maia/posts/353626, Video: AI and Simulation
First off, thanks to lowyhong for maintaining this thread.

Now, two comics projects

EDGE OF THE UNKNOWN Volume 2 - ends Dec. 9
Harry Houdini and Arthur Conan Doyle venture to the dark heart of Lousiana, investigating the mysterious deaths of two "circus freaks".
Like the art. And there are tiers that get you the first volume as well.

ABOLITIONISTA! - ends Dec. 24
Eden’s best friend disappears, and all the clues lead to the dark underground world of child exploitation.
It's about human trafficking and in Manga style.

Would it not use Amazon.co.uk then if the .com isn't supported or something like that.

The question is: Will it be as good as Curiosity?
I'm not going to dismiss it entirely, despite all the recent nonsense from Peter Molyneux. But. It's gotta be singleplayer. Offline singleplayer. I'm not going to help fund the annoying "everything's got to be multiplayer/social now"-trend.
