    In this poll we'd like to find out how many Kickstarter projects (if any) you've backed so far. Yes, the SP Project Eternity and Numenera fundraisers count as well!

    I backed
    Banner Saga
    Project Eternity and
    Numenera

    The Banner Saga turns out pretty well so far, In PE and T:N, there are too many great artists involved to fear it may fail.
    Wasteland 2 is a game I might buy even if I couldn't decide to back it in its kickstarter phase.

    Two times Numenera. 45$ tier to get Wasteland2 and Numenera, and SP Numenera fundraiser 25$ because Taluntain made too good offer to pass with Sps account.

    Speaking of which, I'll be setting up those accounts this week. Got a new computer and setting up everything anew is tons of work...

    only one... that being the fundraiser for Numenera... reasons being that I liked the deal Taluntain was offering and another the fact that I appreciate this web site for all that I have gotten out of it so had to support it somehow. :thanks:

    I'd be very interested in seeing a list from those 3 so far who've backed 16 or more! :whoa: Obviously with so many cool things on KS it's easy to fall into a "gotta back 'em all!" kind of addiction unless you can manage to stay very selective...

    I've backed two projects on Kickstarter so far, though I only gave a few dollars.

    - Project Eternity 20$
    - Torment 20$
    - Divinity: Original Sin 25$
    - Sui Generis 10£?

    Also pledged for Ars Magicka, but it failed. Now I'm thinking of pledging for Massive Chalice.

    The main 'problem' is that they're long-term investments that take 2 years to come to fruition. There's always the option that by then I've "quit" gaming. Anyhow, I believe in the value of the projects and the devs deserve the money for their awesome ideas. If it's not for me, it's for gamers like me. :)

    It'll be interesting to see how many of the people who've pledged actually wind up downloading and playing the games they've pre-paid for. I'm sure there'll be a significant percentage of people who'll end up never downloading and/or playing the games they've supported.

    It's scary counting how many - I dont even want to think of the money. I backed my 38th project the other day and have three more I've got my eyes on for next week.

    Most of the games haven't arrived yet, but those that have I have definitely played and enjoyed.

    I think it's interesting to see if there's someone who once pledged more than 50/100 for a particular game. That seems like a risky ordeal. :p
