Crowdfunding Roundup – 7/17/2019

So I haven’t had the time to be making the crowdfunding posts that I should have been in the last few weeks, but have found some real fun things, so here’s a roundup of all the projects I backed and didn’t talk about.

Small Saga

Crowdfunding Status: Successful!
Targeted Release Date: July 2021
Targeted Release Platform: PC, Mac
Genre: JRPG

Small Saga is a turn-based RPG focusing on boss encounters with no random battles, taking place under the streets of London where you play as a quartet of rodents against the big big world. Bonus points that I didn’t realize when I backed it–the dev previously worked on Aviary Attorney, which really deserves more of all of our time.

Shattered Spear: THE PRINT EDITION

Crowdfunding Status: Successful!
Targeted Release Date: Oct 2019
Targeted Release Platform: Physical book
Genre: Indie Comic

So Iron Circus comics has had 21 Kickstarters–a good number of which I’ve backed–and I’ve never regretted it. C. Spike Trotman has a talent for finding interesting comics and I can’t wait to have my hands on this one.

Star Power and the Choir of Doctor Hymn

Crowdfunding Status: Funded/In Progress
Targeted Release Date: Dec 2019
Targeted Release Platform: Physical Book
Genre: Sci-Fi Comic

I’ve been reading Star Power for a few years now, though normally I buy the latest copy each time I go to Connecticon, which takes place in early-mid July. This time they didn’t have the new book ready, but did have the Kickstarter in flight, so back it I have.

Kingdom of the Dump

Crowdfunding Status: In Progress
Targeted Release Date: Oct 2022
Targeted Release Platform: PC, Mac, Linux
Genre: RPG

It’s an RPG where you play as a trash can. Named Dustin Binsley.
Do I really need any more reason than that to back something?

BETTER THAN IRL

Crowdfunding Status: Successful!
Targeted Release Date: Oct 2019
Targeted Release Platform: Physical Book
Genre: Essays

A book of essays about meeting people on the internet. I don’t know basically any of the authors, don’t normally read essay books and yet couldn’t say no.

No E3 Post

Apologies if anyone super wanted an E3 post, but at this point it’s just super super delayed and not having the chance to actually play any of the games makes me feel less comfortable doing recommendations or anything along those lines.
