Ashens and the Polybius Heist by Stuart Ashen

Indiegogo start date: July 08, 2018
Indiegogo funded on: August 08, 2018

Context:

Ashens is a guy who reviews relatively useless items on his couch. Apparently at some point, he made a film with some familiar faces such as Chris Bingham and Larry Bundy Jr. I didn’t even see it before deciding to back this sequel. I saw it later though. Of course, I had to aim for the name in the credits tier, which was pretty expensive.

Result:

The film has not yet been released.

Estimated delivery date: December 2018

Context:

I thought Cyanide and Happiness is a funny webcomic and animated series, so backing their game should be equally funny.

Result:

The game is not released yet.

It is planned to release in Summer 2020, according to its Steam page.

I simply backed this game because someone said it was going to be the next Undertale, and soon, even SiIvaGunner released a high quality rip of one of the songs in the soundtrack, cementing my decision to remain a backer.

Result:

The developers have stated they are in the final stretch as of August 2018.

The release date for the game will be announced on May 5, 2020.

Context:

A masterpiece in Korean indie animation, the There She Is!! series was first introduced to me on Newgrounds. It has since been remastered in HD for YouTube, and was neatly wrapped up in its 5th and final episode. However, an opportunity to crowdfund a bonus 6th episode and a DVD of the series arose, and I couldn’t pass it up.

Result:

The DVD and 6th episode have not been finalised yet. Some digital rewards have already been sent.
