A few campaigns are lucky enough to be funded within days of launch while others stress us out with near photo finishes. Of course, there’s not infinite money and backers to go around so not every campaign makes it. This post is to honor some of the coolest-looking campaigns which fell short of their goals this time but might make it with a bit of campaign restructuring, further game development, and the like. Of course, as fans of crowdfunding we also see that many people simply don’t put time into creating a project. First we’ll be presenting some personally-selected stand out campaigns before delving into making sense of this month’s data."
