I find it interesting that this is making so much money:

Considering that, at least part 1, I thought was one of the most mediocre visual novels I've played.

Well the way kickstarter works helps. A lot of Americans love the heck out of anything Japanese, so people really went for that type of game for the art style and music. At least that is my theory.

I don't feel like looking for the Wastelands 2 thread just yet, but I'll say that I read through PaleRobbie's preview of it, and I'm actually quite astonished. That was another one I was kinda skeptical on, but it sounds like they really might deliver. I never played the original Wastelands (sounds too old school for me. I can barely hold my own in the original Fallout), but on its own it seems like it'd be a pretty fun and interesting game.

It's an English visual novel on Steam.

Kickstarter is about all about marketing & getting media coverage.  Plenty of KS projects with excellent potential failed because the creators simply didn't have the marketing skills / fame / jouranlism connections / plain luck required to reach their funding goal.  Now, there's a guy that has raised over $50,000 to make potato salad

There are very few rpgs on kickstarter at the moment except for those two post apocalyptic ones. It seems to be slowing down on kickstarter. I read October is suppose to be great for games on Kickstarter. With everything that is releasing that month I don't think its a good idea but I'm no expert lol.

LOl, I saw that when it was just $10. I wonder what hes going to do with all of that.

Braven Arts -a tactical (J)RPG is currently active on Kickstarter. It has a really cool looking tactical turn-based battle system, lots of side quests, and a day / night schedule for NPCs.

Hard-West  - turn-based tactical strategy / RPG set in the Wild West

Age of Grit -a cRPG with a steampunk / Wild-West setting. I like how the steampunk aspect is an integral part of the gameplay and storyline, as opposed to being merely an aesthetic style that it is in a lot of "steampunk" rpgs; e.g., combat takes place on steam-powered airships. I also love their thoughts on RPG quests.
