Marcus Estrada writes: "I’ll make no bones about it, April was a frightening month for crowdfunding. When you’ve got 117 video game projects and only 17 of them succeed you know that something is wrong. If it’s not the quality of the campaigns themselves, then there’s some issue in regards to getting that backer attention and interest. There really was a lot at play at the month which led to such a low number of funded projects, but overall it seemed to cement the unfortunate truth that Kickstarter in 2015 is far different than previous years - and not in a good way. Luckily, fortunes were reversed in May. My take on the situation is that we have Yooka-Laylee and Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night to thank for that. But, let’s not get into this month’s analysis just yet. First let’s highlight a handful of campaigns from May."
