3 Game Projects That Deserve a Kickstarter Campaign

Say what you will about Tim Shaefer’s legendary game industry career, his most recent accomplishment of utilizing Kickstarter as a means of funding the creation of a video game could very well be his most profound in hindsight. Since he raised millions of dollars towards his point-and-click adventure game, it’s opened the door for countless other game creators to follow suit.

When she sat down in front of her new PS3 and chose what game to play first, the choice was clear to her. It did not involve hockey, super powers, caped crusaders, plasmids or Snake Eyes.
