Shadowrun Returns Funded; Mac Threshold Reached

The Kickstarter Page for Shadowrun Returns announces this project achieved its $400,000 funding goal in a bit over 24 hours. Their update indicates that if they hit $425K a Mac version would be added, and they are closer to the $500K mark now, so presumably that's a go too.

I have a question. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, but what happens when developers can't deliver? Are we going to have another dot com bust?

I would shrill like a happy kid if these all come to fruition, but at the same time, I'm a bit leery.

True, it will be a lot harder to get Kickstarters off the ground once the Kickstarter fans have been burned a couple times. And by "burned" I mean that from their perspective they feel they've been burned. The problem with reviving these older properties is that even with the original minds at the helm, the odds of satisifying the majority of the old fans are pretty slim.

Hardcore old school gamers are nigh impossible to please because the closer you get to delivering the game they want, the more they'll blow the little differences out of proportion.

After a couple of these big name Kickstarters end up disappointing, people will be far less willing to fork over their money, and the bubble will burst.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.
