Close to the end my friends. What the heck will I talk about next month?
I haven't backed very many projects on Kickstarter. Funds for me are often tight, or practically non-existent during certain stretches of the year, and I simply can't afford to spend money on a thing that might not happen.
Of the ones I have backed, I think only two have come to fruition so far.
That sucks, and makes me less likely to join a Kickstarter in the future.
Conceptually, it's a great idea - Fans of a concept give money to the concept's creators before any product has been produced so that the product can be produced to the best of the ability, and available funds of those working on it.
Cool. Awesome. And, if you don't reach the desired goal, or you do and nothing comes of it, what then? I'm looking at you Mekton Zero.
Golden Sky Stories, and Spirit of '77 are probably two of the few I've sponsored, and the only ones to put a book in my hand. That's it. Just two.
Just make a game. If you already made it, and it sounds cool, and isn't super expensive, I'll buy it.
That's what I did for The Googly Eyed Primetime Puppet Show.
I didn't want to make a site for maybe making the book. I wanted to make the book. So I did. Perfect? Maybe not, but done and the price? I like to think so.
