Crowd-Funding Games Weekly #3

Once again, here are a couple of games with Linux support currently crowd-funding, as well as some looking back on the projects we previously featured.


Stonehearth

Stonehearth is a cross-platform voxel in which you can build "cities" and castles, craft weapons, and embark on epic quests. Surprisingly good looking thanks to excellent textures, the distinct medieval theme, and with nearly 5 times the $120,000 goal, it's already hit stretch goals for PvP and Co-op multiplayer.


The campaign ends in two-and-a-half days, and you can get a copy of the game for $15 (slated for release in September 2014, which is a good 16 months away). Beta access is $30, and scheduled for December 2013.

Ray's The Dead

Convert your victims and discover your past, and the events that lead to your untimely death as you play as Ray, a suddenly-resurrected zombie with a spark of intelligence and a giant light-bulb sticking out the back of his head that is used to control his zombie hordes.


You can pre-order Ray's The Dead for $15, which gets you either a DRM-Free copy for Windows, OS X or Linux, or a Steam key, pending the passing of Steam Greenlight. There is also 500 copies up for an early bird offer of $12. $50 gets you beta access.

Flashbacks


A.N.N.E was fully funded, raising $100,000 towards a $70,000 goal.

AR-K also raised it's funds, cutting it a little close with $101,564 for a goal of $100,000.

Jagged Alliance: Flashback encountered a surprising drive towards the end of it's campaign, raising $100,000 in it's last three days alone.

Rawbots has seen a surge recently, but still hasn't raised 10% of it's $300,000 target, and ends in less than a week.

Son of Nor has also seen a recent influx, but still has yet to be funded, with less than three days left.

Realm failed to reach it's funding goal, raising less than half of it's target.

Dog Sled Saga more than doubled it's goal, just reaching it's last stretch goal of $14,000.
