Op Ed

Destructoid - Publishers accused of trying to exploit Kickstarter.
"We were actually contacted by some publishers over the last few months that wanted to use us to do a Kickstarter," he revealed on his team's own KS page. "I said to them 'So, you want us to do a Kickstarter for, using our name, we then get the Kickstarter money to make the game, you then publish the game, but we then don't get to keep the brand we make and we only get a portion of the profits.'

"They said, 'Yes'."

There's still unarguably a market for boxed games.

I can't tell you the last boxed game I bought. It's literally been years.


That doesn't mean others don't.

I'm sure there is still a market for boxed games, particularly in parts of the world with slower internet access. However, I doubt this market is worth selling your soul to a publisher for. Twice the sales isn't worth it if it means someone else getting 80% of the profits and owning the IP. (Note: figures made up to illustrate my point).
