    Just wondered what projects you have your eye on, and ideally your pocket money too.

    Just on the chance something might be of interest and not noticed/backed already.

    Here's what I have pending currently

    Console OS: Dual Boot Android, remastered for the PC

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mmv/console-os-dual-boot-android-remastered-for-the-pc

    The History of U.S Gold

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/47744432/the-history-of-us-gold

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/117421627/the-peachy-printer-the-first-100-3d-printer-and-sc

    ICP...ok I won't!

    I have backed 'kingdom come deliverance' and 'the way' on kickstarter, both games.

    I have my eye on a Pyra and maybe a ps4 later.

    I'll back A Song For Virgo, almost there and just 56 hours to go.


    Looks amazing, the art he's folded is quite something, and I guess/hope this game will also be more than just a game to some people who have experienced such tragedy.


    I have a feeling it will be quite an emotional game, very interesting

    I've also backed the Artcade book, although not to happy with the way that's going.


    The only other active KS I've backed is Elite Dangerous

    I've not backed anything but I like the actual Kickstarter & Co. concept. So many new "indy" things, games, movies, 3D Printers and 3D VR Helmets... It changed the world a little bit. :)

    So dear backers, this Song is for you! (ignore the spelling ;) )

    Thanks for spreading the word.  I shall try to do the same.  It has already quadrupled the goal, plus Seth MacFarlane spilled all over it.

    Beep: A Documentary History of Video Game Sound

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/veemix/beep-a-documentary-history-of-video-game-sound

    Ray's the Dead

    [game]

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ragtag/rays-the-dead-0

    Beep was a cheap backing, just for the download of the docu, not in it for the t-shirt and extras, looks like could be decent.

    Feel free to mention me if you back it though too, they have a referral type thing going on where if 10 people back it mentioning your name, you get boosted on the rewards :)

    Ray's the Dead game looks nice graphically, that's what drew me to it ....and it has zombies :) Bonus
