Wouldn't it be amazing if Iga, Hideo and Keiji Inafune just got together and made a studio.

Kojima's gonna end up forming his own indie studio probably and it'll be completely mental.

Why don't all developers do this? Do it for new IP, risky old IP, spiritual successors, and all?

Because not all developers are for the players. These Kickstarter fund amounts are minuscule compared to publisher budgets. Developers are generally paid more money under a publisher. So it depends on what the developer cares about more; money or fanservice.

I hope Little Devil Inside gets funded. It looks nice, the combat looks fun, plus I love the fact it's got the Wind Waker elements in there.
