Sorry about missing last week – I was busy showing our stuff off at PAX Prime.
Castle Story – $702k. Finished.
Occulus Rift – $2.4 million. Finished.
Project Giana – $186k. Finished.
Cheetahmen 2 – $94k. Finished.

The biggest new video game kickstarter in the past few days is for a Homestuck Adventure Game. It’s at $853k ($700k goal) with 26 days left which already places it as one of the top 10 highest grossing video game kickstarters. To be honest, I’ve never heard of Homestuck before now but apparently it’s a rather popular webcomic with a weird sense of humor.
Next up is GUTS, a cross-over between a typical roguelike and a Strategy/RPG. It has a fantastic art style and the screenshots make it look like a lot of fun. I’ve personally wondered many times why people don’t make more roguelikes that involve an entire party and tactical combat so I’d love to see this game get made. It’s at $6k ($60k goal) with 21 days left.
To finish us off, here’s a kickstarter to write a book on how to become a freelance video game journalist. It just met its goal of $7k and has less than 24 hours left to go.
