The game was a successful Kickstarter campaign last year, raising $3.8 million with an original goal of $900,000. If it looks familiar, well, there's a reason for that. Mighty No. 9 is currently set to release in April 2015 for pretty much every platform imaginable: PC, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and 3DS.
Harmonix released Amplitude for the PlayStation 2 in the early 2000s, and even though they have gone on to bigger things since that rhythm game release, they really want to produce a proper successor to the game for the PlayStation 3 and 4.

Game designer Monty Singleton has a new mission to bring back the world of Ghosts 'N Goblins to modern day consoles.

One theme we're hearing way too often from Kickstarter projects is one of fraud. This week, backers exploded (and rightly so) as a funded project was canceled after the fundraiser spent all of the money on NOT publishing the game. The Forking Path company requested $35...
Double Fine Production's project Broken Age, funded via Kickstarter, is, apparently, not funded well enough and now the game development studio may be required to split the game into two parts.

It appears that Frontier Developments' project Elite: Dangerous has garnered over 1,310,000 in funding, getting closer to its 1,500,000 stretch goal (the original goal was 1,250,000).

Amazing. How the fuck does that economy work then?) Source.
