Another Kickstarter Blows Past It's Goal - To Be Or Not To Be: That Is The Adventure
This one isn't quite an RPG - it's more like a choose your own adventure.
It's damn interesting and hugely successful thus far: $387,127 pledged of $20,000 goal.
Personally, I think $25 is the sweet spot, especially with all of the stretch goals that have been met thus far.
Here's some info from the Kickstarter page:
To Be Or Not To Be is an illustrated, chooseable-path book version of William Shakespeare's Hamlet, written by me, Ryan North:
"William Shakespeare" you may know from single-handedly giving us some of our most evocative phrases, such as "all that glitters is not gold", "too much of a good thing", and "the game is afoot" (Sherlock Holmes said this too I guess.)
"Ryan North" you may know from my work on the critically-acclaimed comic Dinosaur Comics, writing the incredibly popular Adventure Time comic book series, or from co-editing the #1 Amazon bestselling short story anthology Machine of Death.
"Chooseable-path" you may recognize as a trademark-skirting version of a phrase and book series you remember from childhood. Remember? Books in which... an adventure is chosen??
