Robert Bowling’s first Kickstarter game, The Adventures of Dash, fails

Robotoki, the creators of the upcoming zombie survival game Human Element, failed to get The Adventures of Dash fully funded on Kickstarter. The game was a 2D platform-puzzler where you played various dreams of a narcoleptic boy. (Android, iPad, iPhone, Kickstarter, PC, Robert Bowling, Robotoki, The Adventures Of Dash)

You would be surprised how little money devs under big publishers like activision and EA actually see for their games.

Richard Garriott is a multi-millionaire who has enough money for a holiday in space. He's still running a Kickstarter.

It's about viral advertising. You're not a patron of the arts, you're just pre-ordering a game.

I think he was just following in the footsteps of previous developers who’ve leveraged a huge Twitter following to garner mountains of cash without actually risking anything themselves.

Rather than spending time making a game then releasing it free, then developing a paid version with regular updates, all the while building a community, they just reach out to Twitter and say, “I’ve kinda got an idea to do something cool, can I have a million dollars?”

I feel bad for him.

If he was apart of a game that had a loyal following, rather than the casual CoD crowd he would have had more luck.

Looking out for Human Element still.
