Obsidian Considering a Kickstart

On a note related to the story above, a tweet from Friday by Obsidian's Chris Avellone asks about interest in a Kickstarter project, pointing to their blog as where to register interest. Apparently this was quite high, as a follow-up tweet says they needed to reconfigure their blog to handle 1000 hits per second following the query (thanks Develop). Word is:

All of Double Fineís success from Kickstarter has been inspiring.

I GUESS PEOPLE LOVE THOSE CLASSIC ADVENTURE GAMES AFTER ALL.*

The idea of player-supported funding is... well, itís proof certain genres arenít dead and sequels may have more legs than they seem. And the idea of not having to argue that with a publisher is appealing.

Out of curiosity, if Obsidian did Kickstart a project, what would you want to see funded? (You can respond in comments or to @ChrisAvellone on Twitter, whichever you prefer.)

* I only use all caps for sarcasm and shouting. And for the Think Tank in Old World Blues for comedy value.

Obsidian doesn't sound like it has a project in mind, it's just seeing $$$EASY FUNDING!!!$$$ and trolling for dollars and design documents. Or at least that's the impression these kind of press releases all over the net imply in my eyes.

While that may be so (about the Easy Funding)... they aren't asking for money nor starting a kickstarter until they have a project in mind.

They are asking the community what THEY want... then, I guess they'll try to make whatever turns out to be a popular and feasible request. In that context, I think it's kind of a cool opportunity to get a bigger named studio to make something that the community wants instead of something they wanted to make.

We'll just have to see what, if anything, they kickstart. If it's something cool... I'll throw in some cash. Although their games have been buggy... I've enjoyed them for the most part.
