And Schafer is known for what exactly..? Monkey Island..famous adventure games.. No one can name the devs of tac shooters outside the hardcore fans. It is the appeal of the genre.. Schafer might be the Carmack of Adventure games. Tac shooters have no "Carmack".
Are you arguing my point for me? Schafer is known for adventure games, yes. And that's why people are putting in the money. It's not for an adventure game, it's for a Schafer adventure game. It's the name that is bringing in the money, not the project.
I'm arguing against other's on here presuming that a recognizable name within the tac shooter dev community will make any difference to a tac shooter kickstarter. And that a career game dev isn't capable of producing a decent tac shooter because he didn't directly work on 3 or 4 titles, ignoring that simply having a long standing career in gaming is a difficult enough task.
Tac shooters is all I care about in this context. I've never played any of Schafer's children's games to completion.
