Project Eternity is what I'm waiting for, along with Wasteland 2, Planetary Annihilation and War For The Underworld. Note that each game is offered for Linux, which played a big part in my contribution decisions.

What is it that Chris Roberts is doing? Did he go through Kickstarter, or something else?

Julian Reiche

He actually went originally through his own website for the first couple million then headed to kickstarter for another couple million and the rest through his own website.

I am really, really anxious for Star Citizen. The head is the original creator of Freelancer before Microsoft bought the developer that was making it out and will feature the things that the original Dev wanted in Freelancer.

From what I'm seeing on the Star Citizen website, this is going to look and play awesomely. While it's just my opinion, Chris Roberts doing a space game should be gold...

Freelancer was a pale shadow of the awesomeness that was WC: Privateer.

Freelancer should have been great. How I played the crap out of it anyhow.

I'm hoping for a bona fide coop campaign this time around.

I am a massive fan of The Longest Journey and Dreamfall so the long, long wait before Dreamfall: Chapters was given a chance has been agony. Definitely my most anticipated game.

Shadowrun Returns is pretty great. I've only played a couple hours of it so far, but Shadowrun is one of my favorite tabletop RPG worlds and SR captures the essence of the gameworld perfectly.

Broken Age, Wasteland 2, Project Eternity, Star Citizen, Planetary Annihilation, they all seem like they could be amazing.

Have been anticipating Star Citizen for sometime now.

Takedown: Red Sabre for those who miss the hardcore thinking-man shooters. Set to ship this fall. Was successfully with Kickstarter.

Star Citizen's done with Kickstarter, but they're still raising. Over 15.5 million a.t.m.

Some of these games look to be interesting. I was imagining them to all be hipster drivel (and there's no shortage of those in here; homestuck fails) so I'm pleasantly surprised.

This torment game isn't one for which I have high hopes but I am wishing it to be what the game Messiah tried to be but failed due to technical limitations and poor controls (among other reasons).
