Chronicles of Elyria’s successful Kickstarter last week summoned many comments from our readers about how many games they’ve Kickstarted — and how it’s more than they’ll ever actually have time to play, even if they do ever release. Turns out a lot of you really are backing the dream as much as pre-ordering! One thing I found fascinating is the impression that no Kickstarted MMOs have actually launched. Quite a few have (Elite: Dangerous, Ascent, Guns of Icarus) with quite a number more in a playable early access state (SOTA, The Repopulation at one point), but the impression seems based on what people backed rather on what all is out there.
I thought it’d be fun to take this weekend’s Leaderboard and poll you folks on how many MMO Kickstarters you’ve backed. Let’s stick to more heavily online games rather than small-scale online games, and feel free to include games that you’ve backed through websites after the Kickstarter itself has closed out.
