Indie Influence: Feed the Lion

For an indie title there was a lot of pressure on Justin Ma and Matthew Davis (more commonly known as Subset Games). They were a high profile beneficiary of Kickstarter funding and the naysayers were waiting with baited breath for a kickstarter game to fall flat on it’s face. Not that the pressure was necessarily deserved. Subset had asked for $10k in funding but one of the quirks of Kickstarter is that there is no upper limit to funding. They ended with around $200k. This created a situation where the eyes of the gaming world were waiting to see them fail. (FTL: Faster Than Light, Industry, PC)
