Kickstarters Worth Funding

On The Art of Authoring / July 24, 2014

I’m not a HUGE kickstarter(er?) but I’ve funded a few projects and been delighted to do so.

I don’t really troll Kickstarter looking for new projects, though, and that means I miss out on some pretty neat stuff.

I’m going to link to a few kickstarter projects here, but I’d LOVE it especially if you guys either find or know of some projects worth mentioning in the comments.

Bicycle GORILLA playing cards

The face cards are HILARIOUS and I really love the little details of the bananas woven into the back pattern.

Not funded (and not looking promising for being funded) but still awesome. LINK HERE

Utter Nonsense Card Game

Combine a ridiculous accent with random cue cards and get a HILARIOUS result. Looks like this has shades of Cards Against Humanity going on here, and I think it looks pretty awesome.


Kaze: Winds of Change Audio Drama

I loved the original short that came out a few years ago, and this kickstarter just draws upon that beauty to offer something even more. Taking an idea and a story into another realm is something near and dear to my heart, and this really seems interesting and beautiful.

    All of the ones I know about are either funded/over or involve potato salad.

    This one’s been over for a while, but I thought it was cool, if you folks wanted to keep an eye on it.

    I’ve funded two projects only…

    One was for a set of Name of the Wind playing cards, which look lovely. And the upcoming Torment: Tides of Numenara game…or whatever.

    Eagerly awaiting results!

    I intended to donate to a few, but I either come up with a reason not to (solar panels as a roadway material), don’t get around to it until it’s too late (robot turtles, consumer-rentable telescope in space), or realize it’s already way overfunded by the time I notice it.

    Soo, much late, but here’s one that looks interesting:

    Already overfunded, but still.
