Kickstarter projects show us a few things that people want. There's plenty of successful old school adventures and turn based strategy games there. They are in still in quite high demand by people but the game companies aren't that interested in making them. I think it's a win-win. Paying customers can get what they want and the actual companies might even get interested in the old dusty genres as soon as they realise the potential in them.

In my opinion gaming industry has been for years chasing novelty and "innovation" and crap like that (it's not all crap of course but it is when it's done on the expense of other things) and now people can finally get their chance of getting back some brilliant old school stuff that worked then and can work now - in new games that can still be innovative in other things.
