Man the art looks really good, but the story sounds awful.

That's exactly what I thought as well - Cradle looks absolutely gorgeous but the story seems to be pretty damn generic. I might back it regardless, but it doesn't seem to be doing that well at the moment - i.e. it's not very likely to get funded.

What do vibrators, anti-malaria patches, and Nikola Tesla have in common? Indiegogo.

The popular crowdfunding platform announced today that it has closed $40 million in a hefty second round of funding. The money will support Indiegogo’s global growth and fund efforts to catch up with its bigger, better known rival, Kickstarter.

Indiegogo claims to have hosted more than 190,000 campaigns from 190 countries. It said that funds raised on Indiegogo have grown by 1,000 percent over the past two years. Its goal is to make Indiegogo “the world’s funding engine.”

Savage: The Shards of Gosen:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/561467528/savage-the-shard-of-gosen

Barbaric adventure with a dash of RPG! Explore and slay in a brutal open world — Conan meets Super Mario and Zelda 2!
...The mood and atmosphere are inspired by the Conan stories by Robert E. Howard, the Milton Bradley board game Hero Quest, and the Dungeons and Dragons setting, Dark Sun. Not to mention a healthy (unhealthy?) dose of my fetish for '80s barbarian flicks...
...The game features include a compelling combat system, item and skill progression, an open world to explore, and procedurally generated overworld encounters,...

Guy's asking for 6000 USD, has a playable alpha. Game looks promising.

Alphas only a 9mb download from indiedb, just grabbed it then, reasonably fun (though i keep hitting esc and it kicks me out) and only $5 to get the game when done.

some rad 2d animation, shadows and the like.
