Pixel Perfect, an “outlet by gamers, for gamers” has a lot of ground to make up before the Kickstarter closes on Tuesday morning. “To stay on top of the industry and really keep our pulse on all things video games we can’t do this alone,” reads the about section. “We want to take Pixel Perfect out of the blogosphere and into the mysterious land of the e-zine.” But with $560 raised out of its $5,000 goal, this project has not inspired enough members of their gamer audience to open their wallets.

The Face of Maar is a photography project documenting the return of Sudanese people to their villages after fleeing decades ago. “After escaping the horrors of genocide that included burning their villages to the ground, thousands of Sudanese people fled Sudan to seek safety in countries like Kenya, Ethiopia and even as far away as the United States,” says the projects about section. “More than 20 years have gone by, and many of the survivors have returned to rebuild their villages, their homes and their lives.” The project went a few hundred dollars over its $2,000 goal, and has until Sunday night to bring in any last minute donations.
