We just backed two cool Kickstarter projects. Here they are:
GTFO: A Film About Women in Gaming:
A documentary on women in gaming, by Shannon Sun-Higginson who is on the outside of the gaming industry. It will be interesting what she finds. Maybe stories like this unfortuante event at PAX East 2013 by Meagan Marie.

An incredible awesome Mega Man feelish retro platformer shmup by Robert Maher! That's all that needs to be said, watch this video and you'll want to fund it too:
