Die, publisher, die ! Tim Schafer, Kickstarter and the rise of auteur-driven games

Something pretty exciting happened a few days ago. Tim Schafer obtained, though Kickstarter, 1,7mil $ in pledges for an unnammed, unspecified point and click adventure game no one wants to publish or fund. If this picks up as a trend, we will finally see more auteur-driven games instead of publisher-driven ones. Auteurs like David Jaffe, Tetsuya Takahashi, Swery65, Hideo Kojima, Hidetaka Miyazaki, Yokoo Taro, and such could have what this medium really needs: more creative freedom. (David Jaffe, Dev, Hideo Kojima, Industry, PC, PS3, SWERY, Tim Schafer, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

This idea could work very well for us gamers by coming together to fund the software we all want to play.and plus would bring back creative titles without major publishers limitations.

is it possible we can convince Kojima to Kickstart a Snatcher squeal?

Im all for this if people can get together and get the proper games voted for. Games like Shenmue 3, Killer Instinct, Powerstone 3, Or a new Battle arena Toshinden. I hope to hear more about these kickstarts in the future.
