In that case I suppose I can wait and see. I'm really unimpressed by all these established designers falling on the kickstarter crutch, though. I find it a bit tacky when real startup groups who couldn't possibly get funding for what they're doing from publishers now have to compete with Al Lowe and Jane Jensen.
People who want to raise money at Kickstarter should
have experience. They should
have successful work history. They should
have track records. They should
have done something similar before and succeeded. They should
know what they are doing. They should
have already paid their due. So now they are looking for money to do their own projects. They have paid their dues, so now they deserve to get the money to finally pursue their dream projects.
I hate when people with no experience, no history, no background, who have not yet picked up any work experience or paid their due, just come out of nowhwere and then think they can use Kickstarter to hit people for money. Personally, when I donate money to a Kickstarter project, the first thing I look at is at the resumes of the people who are asking for the money. Who are they? What are their industry history and work experience? Do they have experience in doing anything similar? Hve they ever successful released a product in the same field? If they are just a bunch of (let say) young punk kids with no experience, who look at Kickstarter is just a way for them to skip work so they do not have to do a day of honest work to get to success, (now that's what really is
tacky,) they can forget it. I know I am not the only one who would not give a dime to those kind of people.
That is why people like Tim Schafer, Brian Fargo, Al Lowe, and indie studios like Double Fine, Obsidian Entertainment, inXile, were able to raise millions of dollars on Kickstarter to fund their dream projects without having to answer to publishers or follow the profit-motivated parameters set by financiers. People who should not be on Kickstarter and who do not deserve to get any donations are green kids who has no experience, no work history, no track records, and are just hitting people for money because they think they should not do a day of real work before they get their break.
