Me too. They deserve it.

I think most people are aware of exactly how everything works. With the example of Double Fine Adventure they say right in their initial video that this whole thing might crash and burn and there will be no game. I am aware that kickstarter and Amazon will take a cut of the cash I forked over and I'm still OK with this.

Let's weigh the pros and cons to me personally
Awesome developers who made awesome adventure games will attempt tomake another classic adventure game - Pro
I get cool updates along the way - Pro
Get a documentary of the behind the scenes - Pro
Feel warm and fuzzy- Pro
Adventure - Pro
Small Investment on my part - Pro
Kickstarter/Amazon get a cut - apathetic
Might get an awesome game - Pro

Game could potentially not be awesome - Con

Really I'm ok with that one con.

Agreed. That game looks amazing.

"The worst thing about Kickstarter is the fact that Amazon takes a kickback which usually results in the business doing kickstarter getting less than they would have if they had gone with traditional investors!"

This sentence shows that you have absolutely no clue. In many of these cases, perhaps even most of the big ones, these are specifically projects that no traditional publisher or investor of video games got behind.

So say we all. Except Blake. He doesn't say that.

Well said.

I'd like to play it on the PC since my iPod can't handle it. Looks like they won't make it, though. Kind of sad when you consider the guy basically liquidated most of his assets to fund it so far.

I see it as a bit of a gamble. As long as I get a copy of the finished product, I would be open to invest/donate/contribute/be ripped off for some of these games. I think publishers are a bit of scam to be honest. They are essentially a middle man selling someone elses work. Kickstarter is a novel idea, I think it will be more successful than not. More pressure on the company, if they realease bad product funded by fans, never work again. Big gamble.

Did they ever get their forums working again, or have you bothered with that?

Haven't bothered.

Were they any good?

No clue. I got their e-mail saying that they had forums, and before I checked it out, I got the e-mail saying the forums were down.
