On the campaign page, you can find a quickstart and try out this project, all you’ll need are players and a deck of cards for the mechanics.

This description from one of the mini-RPGs in Pretentious Games for Villains and Bastards is genuinely funny

Eat Trash and Die - Jessica Crimes
Play as a swarm of locust-like goblins sent to reset the world. Eat trash to grow ever larger, to eat and grow yet more. The Big Lad demands it.

I was interested in the Deep Magic spell cards Kickstarter, but unfortunately they aren’t shipping to Australia as part of the Kickstarter, so I’ll have to check it out at retail.

Another 5e Campaign on Kickstarter that did not hit the list is 'Tellatale"

I am doing art for the project and it is a lot of fun. When I first heard it was based on Fairy Tales I was a bit dubious, but the author puts a fun and wicked twist on it which really caught my interest.

Give it a look.
