Vendetta Online Kickstarter

This Kickstarter seeks funding for an iPad edition of Vendetta Online, Guild Software's multiplatform space combat MMORPG. In addition to this new tablet version, they outline other goals that will impact the game in its entirety: "All players and platforms share the same universe within Vendetta Online, so iOS users will rub elbows with those on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and WinRT. Beyond iPad support, the Kickstarter could also help fund the next major expansion of the title's gameplay, including enhanced player-owned capital ships and territorial conquest, and is scheduled for completion near the end of 2013."

But you're not talking about creating a product, you're talking about expanding an existing product to new platforms to create revenue. Now that's just common sense for anyone in business. Is it a crowdfunding project however? And for the record, I don't disagree for anyone asking for money to help them out, as I previously stated, I'm just concerned that all those who really need it - just to get a product off the ground, not expand - are going to get crowded out by fat cats like Molyneux who have oodles of dough - and remember that guy that won the lottery that was looking for people to pay for his game? That sort of thing really gets on my tits. Or the publisher that asked Obsidian to front a project for them? What's to stop established businesses all jumping on board and doing this?

I don't wish you guys and ill will, quite the opposite in fact. But you do understand what my concerns are, yes? I don't know. Perhaps KS still has some evolving to do. Perhaps they should have projects broken down by tiers based on disclosed finance or matching funds or something. It just doesn't seem right if there's no personal risk to those asking for funding for those who can afford it or existing products where people simply wish to expand into other markets. Otherwise it could lead to people souring on the whole crowdfunding concept entirely and that's no good for anyone.

Sigh, I just don't know. Anyway, I still don't agree with your kickstart but I do hope you guys do well for yourselves regardless of how it turns out.
