And then everyone and their dog decided to jump on the bandwagon and use Kickstarter to fund their gaming project, asking for large amounts of money. So there's a Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective re-release, an upcoming new Tex Murphy game, a new Delaware St. John game, and today a Leisure Suit Larry 1 remake. And for those of us who enjoy RPGs, there's Wasteland 2, The Banner Saga, and more.
I agree with you.Companies and creators asking money from people in order to make games to SELL them?Tim Schafer started it,he deserves the money and the help but after him....why should people start funding games,ffs it's the companies and creative teams' job and task as well to fund their own games and make GOOD games to sell to people.Not for people to pay them just to make something they can sell us.It's f*cking ridiculous!
