Colin Gilzean, producer on the recently-funded turn-based strategy title Battle Worlds: Kronos, has told IncGamers that the financially well-off have no business putting their games on Kickstarter or other crowd-funding platforms.
I am in full agreement here. I've become disgusted with some publisher's intentions of utilizing Kickstarter or other crowdsourcing mechanisms to take money from consumers as a way to cover development costs and reap the benefits of future sales. Indie-start ups and individuals who really need the cash and can't secure it from venture capitalists or other sources are the only people who should seek the refuge of Kickstarter.
