Zombie PlaygroundJun 12
Released, supposedly, but honestly I get the impression there is more like "marked released because we're out of money"
100k-200k5,000Because it's less work for me and gives devs a fair shot

Homestuck Adventure Game (Hiveswap)Oct 12
March 2017: I guess they put out a trailer which claims the game is almost done but it looks early to me. Dec 25: Game disappeared for literally years, dev shows up, re-reveals game, "coming soon"... followed by no communication for a while and then a delay to TBA, then rebooted the game and laid off the dev team. So we're now 3 years and two months since funding and the game is, I guess, in development?

8+ months silence, devs got in hissy fit with each other, money spent, ownership change. The new company that bought the game claimed they would finish it, and then immediately shut it down without doing so.

Pathfinder OnlineJan 13
2017 summary: In 2015, team closed down and ran out of money. Started with new team, gradually getting up to speed. Bad news: They need money to finish the game and no one will give them money. Good news: they appear to have cut back scope and are trying to finish a version of the game. Updates are periodic and there does seem to be some progress being made.

2017 summary: Dev updates 3-4 times a year, writes very unprofessionally, and progress is slow. I don't think this will be finished for several more years, if at all. But it has not yet been abandoned.

AsylumFeb 13
2017 summary: The game has been almost done for 2.5 years, and much of the team was laid off due to lack of resources and an extra KS failing. That being said, there are updates every few months, and it looks like backers got a playable in the last few months. I am not sure if this will release.

Delver's DropMar 13
Devs silent most of 2015. Then most of 2016. Every update just an apology. End of 2016 update shows up after 10 months of silence, promising that they'll do some work in 2017. A few updates in 2017 but I am seriouly skeptical.
