Details Published on Wednesday, 29 February 2012 10:02 In this week's round-up of Android games looking for crowdfunding, we take a look at our usual stomping grounds to find new titles for crowdfunding. Although it seems like this past week has been a bit slow with new additions, there are a couple that you may want to check out. The first game that is up for crowdfunding is on Kickstarter and goes by the name SZC: Beyond Dead by Ash Jackson.
Brian Fargo Double Fine Productions turned video game funding practices upside down last week when it raised more than $1.75 million through the crowd-funding site Kickstarter in record time. That money will go toward the development of a new adventure game that would otherwise never have been made.
Details Published on Tuesday, 21 February 2012 10:01 We posted last week a short list of some of the games we found on the more major crowdfunding sites out there on the interwebs and the response was pretty good. So we will be doing a weekly round-up of new titles available that need funding while keeping an eye on the ones we've already mentioned.

Since launching in April 2009, more than 13,000 projects have been successfully funded on Kickstarter.com, with over $100 million pledged by users of the crowdfunding sensation in that time. Video game development projects have comprised a mere sliver of that valuable haul, but many high-profile titles have smashed expectations to bring in tens of thousands of dollars, allowing their creators to complete the games and maintain direct connections with backers. Kickstarter isn't the only website of its kind -- Gamasutra broke down several of the leading options in May -- but it is the best-known of the bunch, with an all-or-nothing funding design that means project creators that fall short of the stated goal walk away with nothing. And with Kickstarter touting a funding rate of 44 percent, more than half of the projects launched to date have been unsuccessful, with many game development campaigns coming and going over the last two and a half years.

On my last blog post, I wrote a postmortem for my ludum dare game, Enola. Even if it's a really short game, people found it good enough to award it with two gold medals (one for Theme, and the other for Mood), and also made it to Rock Paper Shotgun's ludum dare picks . For reasons like these (of course, positive comments from people around the Net helped too) I began to think about making a full game.
