I usually do things around the $25 level, but the most I've ever spent was on Wasteland 2, the sequel to my favorite game of all time: http://www.kickstart...ile/wasteland-2 Why did I spend so much? So I get to be a CHARACTER in the game! HOW FREAKING COOL IS THAT?!?!?! Please post the ones you guys find and are tempted to join and/or inspired by!


Finally got a shot of me in the game, friend of mine found me before I did.15360260519_19be9d0a80_b.jpgwasteland2-Sam by Kadath, on Flickr

It is soooo much worse for funders than Kickstarter that I am pretty much done supporting them....

This is EXACTLY the kind of project I love on Kickstarter.  Totally in.

Guy could be making wooden ashtrays and I would support him, perfect attitude, a craftsman's heart, and achievable objectives!

In some cases, they tried and failed on KS, so they go to IGG?

Well Jeez, as a user seeing something already failed on KS that means it's poison, what would convince me to support it on a consumer weaker system?  It's like asking to lose.

Well, IndieGoGo is a little more focused on creative media and it is pretty popular among indie filmmakers.

I disagree with that almost completely David. Can you point to some real success stories on IGG compared to the legion of them big and small on KS?

The last time I checked and admittedly it has been quite a while, the percentage of creative media projects was considerably higher on IndieGoGo. And while many filmmakers use Kickstarter including the high profile "success" stories, IndieGoGo seems better thought of in the true indie community.

I have helped fund several Kickstarters and prefer it myself. I did support Skybell through IndieGoGo though.

Not a chance. Or rather, not like you hope.

Key detail at the verge: requires conductive surface.
http://www.theverge....real-hoverboard

As I push off for my first time on an actual working hoverboard, the first thought in my mind is not how different it is from how Michael J. Fox did it in Back To The Future Part II — which is obviously just a movie. It’s whether or not I’m going to immediately go face-first into this large, copper-lined floor. It’s also sinking in that this highly experimental skateboard required signing a liability waiver, and that there are several people positioned around me whose sole job it is to make sure I and their $10,000 prototype don’t go flying out of control.
