Im glad you posted this. I really want to keep a kickstarter thread on here. I know one was floating around years ago but I need to rehash it.

I backed this game about 10 days ago. Its got less than 2 days left and it has everything going for it.

I kind of figured with your high PS4 count, you would be interested in this.

I figured my wife would like this, but the first thing she said was "Ew, this looks like FF Tactics"

Ive been following kickstarters for a while now. My first backed game was early 2012. Since then I have probably backed almost a dozen successful and 1 unsuccessful projects. I would love to keep a constant thread available for people to post upcoming projects they are interested in or just a cool project (doesnt necessarily have to be gaming but obviously would be preferred).

Here are the projects I have backed myself -

Its definitely a FF tactics type of game. While Im not a huge fan of that playstyle, Im still interested in this. :)

I dig this, so I'm gonna share the list of kickstarters I've backed.  I've never backed an indiegogo campaign.  There have been a few I kept an eye on, but I just didn't care enough.  Shaq Fu 2, VGHS Season 3, There she is step 6, Retro VGS, etc.

I'm glad Knights and Bikes got funded. That was one I seriously considered supporting.

I've never supported any of these games. I plan to buy Knights and Bikes, Yooka Laylee and possibly Lobodestroyo if that is ever released.

Lobodestroyo is one I missed, but I've been following it for a year or so now.

Only one I'm waiting on right now that is due to come out this year is A Hat in Time.  Other than that, I have Yooka Laylee and Bloodstained a few years from now.

I was really happy to see that Knights & Bikes was successfully funded. I'm unsure about them adding online co-op support - I imagine that'd be really difficult, but if they think they can manage it, awesome. I'm personally looking forward to playing it with my bf on local co-op, though part of me misses the days of online co-op with him because we'd both have our own separate screens, haha.

My wife and I have never played co-op games without the use of split screen.  We always talk about hooking up stuff so we can have dedicated screens, but it's just not reasonable.

Yeah, we don't do it now because my computer just doesn't hold up anymore. Also, previously we lived several states away from each other ;D

I was disappointed in the Bikes kickstarter cause they absolutely refused to do physical PS4.

I don't know, I live in Texas, other people's several states away might be my drive from one city to another.
