kickstarter.pngRecently a lot of indie game developers have been setting up pages on Kickstarter, previously mentioned in this blog here. Kickstarter is a site where people can fund projects, often in exchange for rewards at different donation levels; you can read about it here. It is currently only available to indie developers in the US (although you can donate from anywhere, as long as you have a credit card -- it doesn't accept PayPal). Unfortunately Kickstarter has no tagging mechanism, and its search feature shows the first 16 results only, so it's pretty hard to search for indie games on it.

So I created this list (in the extended part of the entry). You might recognize some of the games and developers. The amounts are current as of yesterday, current numbers may vary. If you'd like to see any of these games get made or are interested in any of the rewards offered, take a look. The rewards vary from pre-orders to every game I ever make forever to t-shirts to characters named after you to soundtracks to a cigarbox oscillator instrument hand-made by Messhof.
