Feature: The state of games on Kickstarter in 2016

Kickstarter’s Head Of Games: “Kickstarter Fatigue Only Lasts Until Someone Sees Their Favourite Game Pop Up”

At this year's Develop conference in Brighton, I grabbed an hour with keynote speaker Luke Crane, Head of Games at Kickstarter, to talk about the state of play of videogames on the crowdfunding platform in 2016. Discussed: what makes a good project now, the odds of making it, 'Kickstarter fatigue' and the question of glory days, Kickstarter's reaction to funded projects that are not then…

Wotta Clanger: Neal Stephenson’s CLANG Is Dead

While not quite the most-funded failed Kickstarter - that dubious honour belongs to the disastrous Yogventures and the $568,000 that didn't result in a videogame - sword-fighting title CLANG isn't far behind at $526K. Of course, we already knew that the steel-clashing brainchild of author Neal Stephenson was in trouble, having been put "on pause" this time last year when his studio ran out of…

Here's the skinny: $526,125 in Kickstarter money apparently wasn't enough for the peripheral-dependent savior of swordfighting, so Stephenson and co…

The Sweet Clang Of Success

It's looked a little touch and go as to whether Neal Stephenson's crowd-sourced swordfighting game Clang was going to make it. But it has, which means there's one more game added to the list of titles which we hope and pray can ultimately prove those whole Kickstarter thing is a valid model for independent development. At the time of writing, Clang has $520,000 of an…

Neal Stephenson’s Making A Game, Called CLANG

Bam. Neal Stephenson, the author of science and historical fiction like Snow Crash and The System Of The World, has just announced he's making a game. In fact, he announces he's been researching how to make a game for years, and now he's ready to make it. A sword fighting game, that will address his frustration with how sword fighting has been portrayed and delivered…
