Jane Jensen's Kickstarter

This Kickstarter Campaign is for "Jane Jensen's Pinkerton Road 2012-2013 CSG" a proposed "Community Supported Gaming" initiative by Gabriel Knight designer Jane Jensen (thanks nin and AgentJ). Word is: "Sign up as a Pinkerton Road CSG member, and you'll get all of the awesome games we produce for one year*. The CSG model will help our studio survive financially so that we can make the kinds of games that YOU and WE want to play (not what some big publisher’s marketing department has decided will be the next big hit)." Here's what they plan:

If we meet our Kickstarter goal the season will include:

  • Lola and Lucy’s Big Adventure (a kid’s e-book/game written by Jane that we’ve funded ourselves as a bootstrap studio project. It’s nearly finished and will be released Summer 2012.)
  • An all new original adventure game by Jane in the vein of Gabriel Knight and Gray Matter (no pun intended) on PC download, due approximately Mar 2013.

If we raise $600K or more the season will ALSO include:

  • A second Jane Jensen adventure game on PC download, due approximately June 2013. We have a white board full of concepts that have been crawling around in Jane’s brain for years. Or it might be another of the 3 concepts below -- if it gets enough of your votes.

Yeah, no. Loved the GK series, but this is not the way to run a kickstarter. I would much rather have these games as separate initiatives, so I can pre-purchase the ones I am actually interested in. I want to pledge for something more concrete, not put money into some random studio.

Gabriel Knight 4? I'll put some money into that. Just put that up, figure out how much money you need to get the rights to make the game, and set a goal for it.

Or pick one of the other games and really push it. That could convince me as well.

I have to know what I'm actually backing.
