Didnt he get any of that sweet cod money when he left?

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

This guy earned millions...why the hell does he need kick-starters

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?”

No wonder it failed, there's no killstreaks !

Should have called it "The Adventures of Dash and his Pave Low"

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.
