Gambitious Launches: Earth No More & 3D Realms Live

Gambitious is a new crowd-sourced funding website with a gaming-only focus, and Eurogamer notes that one of the projects listed there is Earth No More, which is "presented" by 3D Realms, the Duke Nukem Forever developer presumed to be defunct following its inability to finish that game after more than a decade. Apparently 3D Realms co-founder Scott Miller is a member of the Gambitious advisory board, which helps explain how it ended up there. There aren't any details for the moment, so it's not clear how closely this Earth No More relates to the game 3D Realms announced in 2007 that got them sued a year later. In 2009, developer Recoil Games said that the collapse of 3D Realms would not derail their first-person shooter, but by the end of the year rumors emerged that the game was on "indefinite hold."

I think it is interesting that they did not go through Kickstarter. What is the advantage to creating your own Kickstarter competitor?

One of the differences I read at RPS was that Gambitious allows big investors to contribute for a "share" of the game's profits or something like that.

So I guess that would be the next level of getting venture funds, and bypassing a traditional publisher.

That said... I wouldn't spend a dime on anything with 3DRealms name and / or folks attached to it.... even if someone else is doing the actual developing.
