And again, the whole point of Kickstarter is to get your funding directly from the people who want the game so that you aren't accountable to anyone else.


But that's why some are saying he should fund it himself. Then he wouldn't be accountable to anyone else.

As for being accountable to the "crowd"... there isn't much accountability there... projects on Kickstarter have gotten funded and died. The Backers are SOL.

As I said earlier... I'd like to see a populous remake, and I don't care if Molyneux is involved. I have my own reasons for not being a backer, which I already stated. At the same time... I can see why people are saying Molyneux should really be funding this himself. That wouldn't stop me from backing it, if I didn't have my other reasons, though.

In most people's eyes, Crowdfunding isn't just to avoid a publisher, it's also a chance for an indie team to make a project that can't afford to, otherwise. Molyneux can afford it (At least, the kickstarter goal amount that has been set). It sort of looks like Bill Gates collecting Food Stamps.. ya know? (Not that radical, but you get what I mean)
