There have been a number of interesting game kickstarters popping up, and they still are.

First of all we have:
Torment: Tides of Numenera

The people who did the Wasteland 2 Kickstarter have another one going for a game that is inspired by Planescape: Torment. It isn't set in the planescape universe, instead it will be set in Numenera, a new RPG setting. It seems to be isometric, with companions and plenty of dialogue like PST had, though! You will get to choose the gender of your character this time :D Which I am thrilled about. It looks like it will be a pretty interesting game, and with George Ziets (NWN2: Mask of the Betrayer) and now Chris Avellone involved too I couldn't possibly resist this one. If you want to pledge for it you'll have to be quick though, as right now there are only 19 hours left until it finished. Let's hope they make it to 4 million!

The other one, which I just discovered a few days ago is:
Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues

Now, most people probably won't be as keen on this unless they've played the Ultima games, and even then all the stuff pointing towards an MMO could be a big turn-off too. However it is important to note that they call it 'Selective Multi-Player' and say that there will be a single-player offline mode that you can play. This is the reason why I am interested in this Kickstarter (because online games aren't terribly interesting to me). I'm hoping that we'll get to see a decent and interesting game out of this as I liked the Ultima series, especially Ultima 7 (and I even recall playing Ultima Online when it came out way back when).

Unfortunately this Kickstarter is only a day behind the Torment one (I suspect that this along with other things like the age of the games might be why it hasn't done as well we the Torment one. The IE community is also still going strong which is a huge support to games like Torment) so there are only 58 hours to go on this, and two Kickstarters to potentially spend money on.

I am going to be buried in games by the time all these gaming Kickstarters start sending stuff out.
