Energy Hook Kickstarter

This Kickstarter seeks to fund a game called Energy Hook from Happion Laboratories, a game from the creator of the highly regarded web-swinging in the Spider-Man 2 game that follows a somewhat similar principle of navigating a city with a sky hook of sorts. The project is already funded, but that was easy, since it began with a goal of one dollar, as the developer admits he will finish the game no matter what, but he also really needs the money. The project has now hit its first stretch goal of $10,000. Thanks nin.

That seems like a really sketchy way of getting money or very poor budgeting but either way I'm not touching a $1 KS with a ten foot pole.

I agree. If they wanted to go that route, they could have used indiegogo, which I believe allows what they call "flexible funding".

Just saying "I'll take whatever you give me, but the game will happen either way" isn't really in the spirit of KS, or (IMO) how it was designed to be used.

THAT was actually why I sent it in - I was trying to point out HOW they were doing it, and not because I wanted them to be successful.

Can't say I'm really excited about the way that was done...

I was skeptical when I saw the $1 KS goal and read the "Spiderman 2 dev wants to make game like Spiderman 2!" However, after watching the video, I think this looks really cool. The dude has some great ideas on stuff to add if he makes his stretch goals. This in Oculus Rift would be a trip.
