Intro paragraph

Welcome to another episode of The Funding Crowd, in which we have secretly replaced star writer Muntdefem with a motley crew recruited off the street. Enjoy!

What Happened


Waking Amy suffered a painful defeat as it ended above the 80% mark, but its creators are considering to relaunch the project in a few months.


7 Days to Die gave us the first good news of the week. It more than doubled the $200k funding mark and unlocked all the stretch goals in the process. Said stretch goals include more locations, items, weapons and enemies, an expanded skill tree, seasonal weather, Oculus Rift support, animal zombies, NPCs, professional voice acting, or drivable vehicles among others. If you happened to miss the campaign you still can get alpha access to the game on its website, although it seems the Linux version is still not available.

Chroma Squad is the recent addition to the Happy Ending Club. Not that it came as a surprise really, since the project was successful very early in the campaign. The key ending 48-hour period didn't provide a good enough spike to hit that last stretch goal of an episode editor, though. But hopefully it can still be achieved if enough pre-orders are received through the Humble Store on the game's website. A Greenlight page has also been launched.

Still in the Running

Neverending Nightmares is a horror-infused stealth game inspired by living through the nightmare of dealing with mental illness. After the financial disaster of his previous game Retro/Grade Matt Gilgenbach needs this campaign to be able to stay indie and make the game of his dreams -- which happens to be very much on the nightmare side of dreams, with art hand-drawn in black, white, and blood red. Fans of Amnesia: The Dark Descent should consider pledging to help put Matt's nightmares to good use; this campaign has hit 34% funding after about half the time has passed, so plenty more horror fans are needed.

New-pick paragraphs


<WIP: Speedster>

In a world where evil scientists with monkeys growing out of their heads are a dime-a-dozen, where goldfish customarily plot planetary domination with the oratory style of a televangelist, where furry sidekicks commonly cope with stress by turning into a monster and attacking the hero... In such a world, the gaming public is justified in wondering why they should care whether Doug TenNapel returns to the field of game design.

This is not that world.

This is a world that needs Armikrog.

Project Phoenix
