Recently there was a Kickstarter campaign by the fairly well known Soda Pop Miniatures (Relic Knights / Super Dungeon Explore) to make a parody card game based on the dating-sim games of Japan.  I was totally all over that.  Quick, silly card game with cartoon schoolgirls is pretty much top of my "pay attention to me" list.

Until a blogger got upset and Kotaku kicked up a fuss - that caused Kickstarter to pull the project at about the 210% funded mark without even speaking to Soda Pop or seemingly doing any research at all.  Which is a major bummer and rather a nasty mark against Kickstarter.  I don't like censorship in my media, especially uninformed censorship.

Soda Pop have moved their fund raising efforts to their own website, so if this game sounds like it might appeal to you at all (if you've bought anything from Soda Pop in the past, you're likely to at least want to take a look) please go and have a gander at the project over at Soda Pop Girls.

You don't have to like it, but I'd appreciate it if you took a look.  If you'd like a slightly longer version of events and some links to other crowd-funded projects that are worth a look, jump over to Frontline Gamer's post here.
