I jumped in on Shovel Knight like 4 hours before the Kickstarter ended.
I'm personally super curious about Ghost of a Tale
. Text copied from the Indiegogo page. "...A small game where you play a little mouse on a quest in a medieval world populated by animals.. [...] Among the inspirations I could quote Disney's "Robin Hood", the fables of La Fontaine, "Redwall", "Winnie the Pooh", "The Secret of Nimh", "The Dark Crystal", the paintings of Alan Lee, John Howe, Paul Bonner, John Bauer, and many, many others..."
I feel a little off suggesting it, because I haven't even decided if I want to fund it myself. The thing is you have to pay ~$26.07 just to get the game when it comes out and I have no idea how long he intends to make it. I don't know how comfortable I'd feel about dropping ~$26.07 for a game that could very well be 2 hours long when I get nothing for the risk. Yet again, I can't help but want to fund it because it's so intriguing, the video alone kind of hits a soft spot in me. I definitely want to play it, but that's a harsh amount to drop with so little knowledge. (I should really check out those updates when I get a chance. It's late right now though.)
