Garriott: Crowd funding 'leaves us free and beholding to the users, not the sales department'

GameZone's Matt Liebl writes, "It's every developer's dream: create a game for the fans without the hassles of dealing with a publisher. While in the past this may not have been possible, a growing number of developers -- even some of the industry's most recognized -- are turning towards crowd funding to get their game funded. Kickstarter, an online crowd funding platform, has allowed numerous developers to fund their project without having to jump through the hoops of a publisher."

We need more crowd funding and fewer publishers.
