Last night's Sony conference at E3 announced Shenmue 3 was headed to Kickstarter.  At the time of this writing, the crowdfunding campaign has surpassed its $2 million goal, and has hit $2,414,146.  If you find that baffling, consider this: one $10,000 backer is going to receive the "original jacket worn by Masaya Matsukaze for all of the Shenmue press events 14 years ago" plus a special video message from Yu Suzuki.

One of the game's original creators, Greg Johnson, is seeking funding on Kickstarter to bring back beloved funky 90s game Toejam and Earl.

The new game will be reminiscent of the first Toejam and Earl, with "fixed isometric camera, 2D sprites, simple controls, and an emphasis on coop play."  Development is currently focused only on PC, though the team hopes to expand that to more platforms in the future.

Meet Yooka and Laylee, the chameleon and the bat at the head of Playtonic Games' Yooka-Laylee.  



Yooka uses his tongue as a grappling hook, while Laylee carries Yooka around on wings as the pair roll, jump, and fly to great adventures in this new platformer.  



If you're feeling like you're having Banjo-Kazooie flashbacks looking at this, there's a reason for that; the game's developers are a group of former Rare employees who have come together at a new company of their own called Playtonic Games.  This is the studio's first game, and they've made no secret of the fact that they want it to be a "spiritual successor" to Banjo-Kazooie. Playtonic is taking their game to Kickstarter in order to get financial support from fans and make this game the best it can be. When funded, Yooka-Laylee will be released for PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U. Part of the Kickstarter's goal is achieving simultaneous release for every platform, as well as co-op mode, multiplayer, extra bosses, and additional languages.


Shut up and take my money!

Cult-classic film riffing comedy show Mystery Science Theater has been off the air for fifteen years, but all that can change for the low, low price of at least two million dollars raised through Kickstarter.

The show's creator, Joel Hodgson, thinks it's finally time to bring back MST3K, but he needs your help to do it. With $2 million raised through Kickstarter, he'll be able to produce three new episodes of the series. Want a full season? That'll require $5 million:

The ultimate goal of this Kickstarter is not only to produce new episodes, but also to get a network or digital distributor (lookin' at you, Netflix) to notice how many people are still interested in the show.
