Your idea has potential, the gameplay looks awesome.
But I think your graphics falls a bit short, it lacks depth and contrast to make walls/ground and enemies stand out.
But most importantly, it doesn't seem to have much juiciness, like animated splats and splashes, explosions, empty gun cartridges raining down, camera shaking, etc.

I'm only saying this because you seem highly determined and looking at your site you clearly know how to draw.
Right now I think people on kickstarter see the game and think "oh another 8-bit game"..
If you post a mockup here on the forums I'm sure you'll get tons of feedback on how to take the artstyle to the next level.

Fields of Fresh has been in development for about 2 years now, and we need your support for the final stages. We want to provide the best pixel-arted, side-scrolled, action packed, overly dramatic, farming RPG game possible.

Things we need to fund are our voice actors, musicians to create unique music for the game, spriters and animators.

This project has grown constantly overtime, with us going from developing the Game in Game Maker to C++. That conversion process has taken up quite the amount of time. If you are tired of all of the bad social farming games, please back our project to support a farming game going to the roots of what a RPG game should really be.
Thank you for your support.

-Other platforms we plan to port to is the OpenPandora and possibly the new OUYA console

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Controls
Use the Arrows the move
X = Action/Command Key
Z = Exit/Stop Key
C, V, B, N = Used for harvesting, and other reasons
Mouse = Used in certain menus
Esc = Exit Game.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

About
    Fields of Fresh is a Farming Simulation/RPG centered around the protagonist Mark Seed.
In the game, you receive a farm from a man named Mr. Way. After working on the farm, you discover
valuable allies and enemies. The main enemy/boss in the game is Jezebel, who wishes to run you out
 of business, since you refused to tell her the secret formula to Way Nog. But the story is still
being sketched out. In the game you can own pigs, cows, sheep, and chicken and raise crops as well.
 Some cutscenes are done, but not everything. Please note, I would love to receive help in finishing
 this game
.

Hey All,

This KickStarter is a hardware product, it's an LED based display for showcasing pixel art. It's called PIXEL and includes an LED panel containing over 1,000 LEDs. Essentially each LED equals one pixel meaning it will display pixel art that is 32px by 32px. You set the pixel art which can be a still image or animation from your Android device.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/996412530/pixel-interactive-led-art

Here's an animation example featuring the work of Pixel PileDriver http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=MgBDf8d-x1U

More info at http://ledpixelart.com

Could be a nice way to showcase your pixel art for some of you.



Thanks for looking and I'd welcome any feedback

Best,

Al

Hrm...just noticed Spuds Quest. The original version was released some 5 years ago for the PC as freeware and I reviewed it for Reloaded.org: http://www.reloaded.org/download/Spuds-Quest/362/

Glad to hear it's going to be reborn, although I would prefer the developer mentioned this first version on the Kickstarter page, as much of the work is reused.

I just found this kickstarter today and came here to try to find supporters for it. I realize that I am new here, but take the 3 minutes to check out the video. It looks amazingly fun. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/evelendgames/pixelry-a-jousting-focused-medieval-rpg?ref=live You get to design your own equipment in game.
