Publishers: A Necessary Evil

PixlBit | It’s been a little over a year since Kickstarter kicked down the door of the video game industry and introduced itself. Double Fine’s then untitled adventure game utilized the crowd funding site to finance a game in a genre that most have presumed dead, or at least mostly dead (which means a little alive), for quite some time now. No reasonable publisher would hand money over to a studio not known to be especially financially successful, for an unproven IP in a genre that some younger gamers may not even know exists – and it’s hard to blame them. (Culture, Dev, EA, Kickstarter)

There is another fan funded game, Star Citizen, with over $14 mil in funding. Its also in a genre that is dead right now, Space Sims.

Thank god for this, because Space Sims is one of my favorite genre and I hope to god this game succedees.
