Somehow, Tim Schafer's Adventure Kickstarter Needs More Money

Double Fine's adventure game Kickstarter was one of 2012's great success stories, bringing in over $3 million in community funding. A year later, though, it turns out that wasn't enough money to get the game finished.

Its a an inventive solution alright and I am happy they are not asking backers to give me.

I was surprised the game will be in development for another year.

I trust Tim to make an awesome game at the end of its development.

I'm sorry but that is the dumbest thing. You can disagree with me but to be honest, for a kickstarted project that only asked for $400,000 and got more than $3,000,000, and ontop of that is still asking for more money is super bull, and not all the money was spent on the project. Come on, they almost got 8 times more than for and it is not enough?

Now they say we wanted to add more as if all the money was spent purely on the game.

Double Fine makes great games but clearly their studio is out of control.

Clueless? Its a milking scam, buddy.

how so when they are not asking any extra money? You buy part 1 and then get part 2 as a free update.. its the same as if they had release the whole game and you had paid for it. How about reading the article(or the letter for that matter) before making clueless comments

It's not the same at all. They're releasing it in two parts to get more money.

@Onilink: Might look like a scam because of following:
1. They received close to 3.5m USD in crowdfunding campaign.
2. It's still not enough, and they aim to sell early access(which most probably excludes people who chipped in for Kickstarter campaign).
3. There's absolutely no guarantee he won't charge for the second act. I suspect he will find a way to do that.

It's the same problem he had with Brutal Legend(24m budget, I like the game 'cause of being a headbanger, but was atrocious for that kind of money. Assassin's Creed 2, Crysis cost similar, and more than Crackdown and a bunch of other games). He devoured too much money, and I can guess, he might do the same with DFAdventure. And the last one is why I personally think it's far from being right.
