Lobster, otherwise known as Ian Kragh, is one of the most prolific miners of Kickstarter video game data around.  Read almost any Kickstarter thread in a video game forum and you’ll most likely seem him chime in with a mind blowing amount of data, analysis, and commentary.  Invaluable for developers, and deeply interesting for backers, Lobster’s Kickstarter video game analysis is a must-read for anyone involved in the crowdfunding community.

Misc

Daymare: 1998 has Kazuhiro Aoyama of Resident Evil 3 involved.

Shardbound was 100% funded (The goal was $50,000) by the end of its first day. It had excellent pre-launch marketing.

Winds of Change currently has 12 backers at its $500 tier. There are 55 backers pledging a total of $10,977 for a huge average of $199.58 per backer.

Project Anora is back for a second attempt. The $50 tier introduces a copy of the game. The pitch video uses an image of the Nintendo Switch as a frame.

The Contractors is now up to 17 out of 28 backers not picking a reward tier. About 45% of the funding is unallocated. A backer from the $100 tier downgraded to the $35 tier (a loss of $65). It is behaving unusually.

Campaigns launching right now that are running for standard 30 days are ending up on Saturday or Sunday in March. The last 48 hours is precious time that can be wasted on a weekend when fewer people are around.

Sundred

Sundered had a very impressive final 48 hours.

On February 14th Sundered announced that Limited Run Games would handle manufacturing of boxed copies of the game. These boxed copies include both PC and PS4 versions of the game.

After that announcement, the $100 tier exploding in popularity. It went up from 117 backers to 857 backers in less than 4 days.
