Project Eternity
Most of you probably know about Project Eternity already - basically some of the people behind Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights 2, Planescape: Torment, Fallout: New Vegas, etc doing an old school Baldur's Gate style isometric RPG. It is currently the highest funded project on Kickstarter, but has 11 hours to go and is $25K off $3.5 million in funding.

I mention this for a couple of reasons. Firstly, if they do hit $3.5 million, they will include a second large city in the game, which is likely to make it significantly more involved and interesting. If anyone out there likes old school party based CRPGs, this will almost certainly be worth your money - these people really are the best in the business at creating CRPGs with actual PLOT. (They also did Icewind Dale, but no-one's perfect.)

Secondly, they have recently added plans for an expansion pack. Adding $20 to your pledge (read the instructions on the main page) will get you a digital copy of the expansion pack as well when it is released. From what they are saying, this will be an expansion in the traditional mould rather than more modern style DLC, so is likely to represent good value. It's possible that some people who have already backed don't know about the expansion pack, and it's a good way to get that total up past the magic $3.5 million.

Less than 3K off that target now, I notice.

And it ended $450K over it. Impressive.
