There's also this treasure, from Tom Hall, the creator of Commander Keen!

I doubt he'll make it though. :( But I'm glad to see he's still keeping busy!

Himalaya Studios, also known as AGDI, has launched a Kickstarter for their Adventure/RPG hybrid game, Mage's Initiation!

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2112639455/mages-initiation-a-classic-sierra-style-adventure

Ooooh YES! I have waited a loooong time for this. Goodbye paycheck, hello noodlesoup. :)
There's so many movies/games/books/comics that I don't know where to start!

Well, better start with the classics and work my way forward...

Yeah, I feel bad for Tom Hall.  That's two major Kickstart Failures right there.

I've backed both Dreamfall Chapters(huge TLJ fan) and Asylum(loved Scratches) - the only two Kickstarters I've pledged to aside form Cognition. ;)

I really hope Asylum gets funded. I think it will, but just barely. Only a week left. But considering how good Scratches was, and how good this looks, I'm amazed it hasn't gotten more money yet.

All the Kickstarters I've looked at lately have finished, but done so with glorious success!

Obviously, Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption being one but also this Sui Generis RPG looks amazing!
There were some others but I can't find their pages anymore. Oops. :P

Mages Initiation, I've been waiting for that game forever and oddly enough feels more like a Quest for Glory game then even the game that was meant to feel like a quest for glory game (a game I only supported because I felt guilty for harping on it because I always harp on games).

Ohh yeah Hero-U that was the name of the one that was dirrectly trying to make a call back to Quest for Glory.

I am glad Mages Initiation is still being made.

As for the rest of these. I REALLY don't want to start saying how I really feel about a lot of these (especially Sui Generis) as I want to at least be tollerated here. So off I go into the yonder!

Speaking of Hero-U, when IS Rogue to Redemption coming out anyway?

I would imagine not for at least a year, or around that.

I believe the current schedule says Oct 2013, but to me that looks doubtful. My guess would be beta around then with release Q1, maybe even Q2 2014.

But that's just a guess. The "official word" is still Oct 2013 as far as I know.
In theory, there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

Mage's Initiation hit its funding goal in the middle of the night last night.  Now they're past 70K.  Makes me wonder how well we'd have done if we'd set our goal a bit higher.  Of course, they have a lot more games under their belt, too.  :)

Oddly enough I only care about the stretch goals up to the 95k

Past that they are entirely uninteresting. Even the animation (since frankly their ingame animation looks better then their cinamatics. Heck if 100k was they would redo their cinamatics with ingame graphics I'd be on the edge of my seat).

Mind you I cannot blame them. It isn't the only game with worse cinamatics then their ingame animation. Which oddly enough is extremely common in point and clicks but basically no other genre I can think of.

One of my favorite RPGs is going to be in full color!  And it has a theme song!

This isn't a gaming Kickstarter, but it is awesome, and I am super excited:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/559914737/the-veronica-mars-movie-project


Also, I'm going to move this out of the Gaming Talk area, since there are many kickstarters that are both awesome and not in games. :)
