8-23-15 Furfunding Highlights

A little bit of grumbling about SWAT Kats, and this week’s new projects… Illustration from “Cremisi,” Scifi-western Manga/multimedia project now on Kickstarter I’d probably get boo’d off the stage if I’d really taken apart the SWAT KATS kickstarter project. I’ll be honest, I’m not particularly a SWAT KATS fan. Nothing wrong with the show, it just ..

8-16-15 Furfunding Highlights

 Indiegogo Launchpad’s direct sales to Amazon, and this week’s highlights… This week’s illustration from Retronator: Pixel Art Academy, now on Kickstarter. Well, this is pretty darn awesome. A lot of our community’s product is kind of nebulous–digital art, commission work, and so on, so I’m having a hard time imagining how a furry crowdfunder might ..

Soar with the Horses: Roan

Soar with the Horses: Roan

High-flying adventure and hoofs storming the beaches in a pulp-inspired, 1940s ponyverse… Roan Kickstarter ending 9/8/15 Pulp-inspired gaming is, in that very specific sense of the word used by tabletop RPG publishing, pretty big right now, with Spirit of the Century making the rounds in indie gaming and Piazo’s Pathfinder game dipping a toe into the genre ..

The Wulfden Theatre Company presents Zipped and Pelted Playing at the Chicago Fringe Festival, September 5-13, Chicago, Illinois Funding on Indiegogo through August 21 One thing that Indiegogo does so very well is operate on a local level—as a platform for community groups to raise funds and build awareness for events that might never be able ..

Illustration from “CatTube Famous,” card game now on Kickstarter. Warning, this ramble is focused on adult content, so consider avoiding the links depending on your context. One of my focuses for the last year has been crowdfunding for projects that fall outside the Terms of Service. To the best of my knowledge, there is nothing ..

Space Hyenas and Metal Mice: HC SVNT DRACONES returns

Space Hyenas and Metal Mice: HC SVNT DRACONES returns

A return to exploration, politics, culture, survival, and furries in space…  HC SVNT DRACONES: Core Extension Kickstarter ending 8/26/15 As I have said a number of times, I am a sucker for a good tabletop role-playing game. And the semi-unspellable HC SVNT DRACONES has every chance of becoming the darling of the v-e-r-y small furry TRPG “industry.” The artwork ..

What a long, cute, road it’s been: Foxtail

What a long, cute, road it’s been: Foxtail

After a crushing break-up, a young fox goes on a point-and-click journey into her past. Foxtail Kickstarter ending 8/30/15 A part of me did not want to review this one, because the world of 8-bit homage video games is a crowded one. But several of my furry crowdfunding friends have fallen in love with it, ..

7-25-15 Furfunding Highlights

Illustration from Fearsome Creatures of the Night, now on Indiegogo A sincere apology for the recent unplanned hiatus. I went from a period of unemployment to getting a new job—with the first, it’s hard to concentrate on writing and creativity. With the second, there just isn’t time for it!  So it’s been almost a month ..

7-1-15 Furfunding Highlights

Illustration from Cats Royale and Dogs Royale card decks, now on Kickstarter. One of my private retreats from the bad projects and crude jokes that periodically flood Indiegogo and Kickstarter is the tumblr feed, Your Kickstarter Sucks. It is sadly not possible to do anything about Bad Kickstarters, except point on them and laugh. Or maybe ..
