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 Fine’s success from Kickstarter has been inspiring.
I GUESS PEOPLE LOVE THOSE CLASSIC ADVENTURE GAMES AFTER ALL.*
The idea of player-supported funding is... well, it’s proof certain genres aren’t 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.)
