There is a lot of positive press going on with games getting funded with Kickstarter. Games that might have never got a fair shot otherwise.
ON the other side though are games that are not as far along or in the idea phase that kind of get left in the dust. I type "MMO"into the search feature sometimes just to see what else is out there.
Here are a couple examples:
The first one has been up there 2 other times and been pretty underfunded. They scaled back their expectations but now only have 1 dollar pledged with 7 days to go. Reading the history they have been working on the game for around 4 years or so and that might have been the last chance to get it funded.
The second one you can tell people put work into it but is mainly in the design phase and has about 815 dollars pledged.
I look at these guys and kind of feel bad that they put work into this and really have nothing to show for it whil other projects get 2-10x what they ask for. Then again most of those have a much better presentation.
I guess I just put them up because maybe at least a couple people can see them and help them out in some way. Many people that work in the industry read thes forums so maybe they could give them some advice to help them out.
The easy thing to say is they suck and move on but maybe someone reading will see something promising and work with them to help them out.
There are a few more like this on the site but didn't want to post every single link and these two kind of stood out for various reasons.
