Right now is really interesting on Kickstarter, we’ve got 3 massive multi-million dollar projects: Bloodstained (AKA Castlevania), Yooka-Laylee (AKA Banjo-Kazooie), and the next Obsidian entry, Bard’s Tale 4.
The general consensus was that big pull-ins like this were a thing of the past and that people were souring on Kickstarter, and it’s hard to tell if that judgement is valid or not. I don’t think Double Fine could do it again, but if Hideo Kojima went on there for a new post-Konami project, I’m pretty sure there will be enough money thrown to blot out the sun.
And we’ve got the Steam summer sale, which also has a massively multiplayer clicker game this year.
As usual, the sale isn’t as I tempting as I remember, if only because half the items on the front page are greyed out from being already owned.
