A Kickstarter game that was as good as promised or good at all?

I'm asking because of this project.
I want to back it up but I am very hesitant to do so.

The only project that I have ever supported is:

The only reason is because I actually trust WayForward to bring good games to the table as they always have.

Other than that, have there ever been any great games released with funding from kickstarter?

I'd also be very skeptical that they could make that game with such a small budget, but that's not the case: they're not actually going to make the game with those KS funds. It's been in development for more than a year,but they were struggling to find a publisher willing to take the risk of a non-fantasy game.
They eventually found an investor willing to fund the project if they could show there was a good amount of demand for it, and they're using KS to prove that.

Oh, Chivalry was one of them?
I never knew that as I had fun playing it since it reminded me of Mount and Blade!

I believe Valdis Story: Abyssal City was crowdfounded.
Great game IMO.

In my opinion, there have been absolutely zero games that have been worth a purchase from Kickstarter.
