This is a direct rip off of Kickstarter's success with Steam taking a cut of the profits.
Shame on Newell.
I'm sure someone else that gives a shit can find the quote...but it was years ago that Gabe first suggested the idea of crowd-funding devs on Steam, but they said there were too many legal issues to deal with.
Regardless, based on their press release, this has nothing to do with crowd-funding.
PS: "Kickstarter" isn't one of it's kind. There are other sites doing the same thing, using the exact same web template as Kickstarter.
But hey, don't let that stop you guys from keeping your head up your ass.
