But I’m asking myself today, do any of these Kickstarter projects, past or present, interest me? I still haven’t invested in any of them, unless you consider my $20 support to Trove within that. That doesn’t mean that I won’t partake when these games come out or am not hoping to be pleasantly surprised, just that the risk/reward isn’t favorable in my eyes and I’d rather have my money for things now than uncertain things in the future.
So let’s see…
Shroud of the Avatar definitely will get a play or two out of me when it opens up to the general public just because I have some respect for the Ultima franchise now that I’m playing one of the older games, plus there’s some real love for housing here.
Star Citizen? I’ll play it if it isn’t just a PvP gankfest or EVE 2.0. I’m hungry for a good space sim that treasures exploration and shipbuilding as much as dogfighting. Elite: Dangerous is a good backup in this field, although I haven’t heard as much about it (it does look gorgeous, though).
Weirdly enough, I’d be very interested in Camelot Unchained if it was PvE. I am attracted to the worldbuilding and concept art that it’s put out.
TUG is on my interest list. It’s got visual charm and a lot of fun sandbox ideas. We’ll see if it can package those together well.
The game I really want to see put out another campaign is Anthymn. I know they’re working on a better presentation, and man, I hope it can capture enough attention to fund.
But really, that’s about it right now. Other games like the Repopulation and Pathfinder Online will need a lot of strong word of mouth testimonies before I’ll give them my time.
