Kickstarter Devs: Please Don’t Screw This One Up

Seemingly overnight, Kickstarter has become a phenomenon within the gaming community, with some projects raising hundreds of thousands of dollars. This probably is not about to replace the traditional publishing model any time soon, but it has been a very good outlet from which smaller devs can get funding. The only problem is, when you have the fans, which can number in the hundreds of thousands, funding your game; doesn’t that mean that there are hundreds of thousands of different interpretations of your proposal as well?

It will get interesting. Is there a contract signed or is it all voluntary money with no stringa attached? What if things go wrong or they need more money to finish? What if it never geta made. I hab no problems if its entirely volunteer but i would draw up a contract saying that people who donate have no say and cannot be refunded. Otherwise lawsuits will occur. Damn, ppl were so pissed at me3 talking like it was their game. I umderstand the anger, but it was worth $60 even with the ending. I do hope the dlc helps.

I hope for the best. It is a unique way to get some games made. Habe gamers ever tried using a petition to get a game made. If u can prove that there is money to b made anything is possible.

There should be an amount you have to submit to start a project on Kickstarter just so people know you're serious. Like 500$ or something. That way the cheapo projects get weeded out.

If anyone else is fans of adventure games here is two kickstarters currently active, and need pledges:

I'm looking forward to that one from the Space Quest guys. I was a big fan of SQ4 and 6 back in the day.


Why Is No One Making AAA Horror Games Anymore?

Saif from eXputer inquires, "Despite the everlasting popularity of the genre, why hasn't there been a good AAA horror game in a while now?"

Jin_Sakai1d ago

Because the gaming industry is obsessed with live service games.

Because he touches himself at night to characters like lady Dimitrescu.

Did I give away your secret? It's okay, if you sit on your hand and numb it, you can pretend it's her playing with your little stick.

Good for me, I have no interests in horror games

Even when they do it's first person trying to copy Outlast, Five Nights, P.T etc

I think the Dead Space / RE2 / RE4 Remake and the Evil Within 2 showed you can have a good story based, third person survival horror game.

remakes is another good reason

I feel like we haven't had much in the way of horror games for years, I think it became rare after the PS2/PS3 gen. Maybe i'll pick up that Crow Country that recently came out, that looks good.

Crow Country needs some more love.. and more exposure

Because outside of a fee games, most don't sell that well

Crows907h ago

So in other words...AAA publishers don't have creativity or passion for games.

CrimsonWing6912h ago

Didn’t we have Dead Space Remake and Resident Evil 4 Remake last year?

thorstein12h ago(Edited 12h ago)

Among others

And isn't Dying Light 2 a horror game?

Scissorman12h ago
