Any of you donated to any Kickstarter projects yet? Just did my first, for the sequel to… Planescape: Torment! Wasn’t much of a risk on my part; their goal was $900K and they’re already at almost $2.5M (plus another 28 bucks).
The odds of financing a game as great as Torment? Low. But the odds of an excellent game? Very darn good. They picked a perfect bull’s-eye to aim for.
