I backed only one Kickstarter in 2016: Hero’s Song, which you’ll recall didn’t fund. While I’m generally suspicious of Kickstarter and have regretted a couple of my donations, I can’t rightfully say it’s a bad thing since it’s one of the big reasons I’m saying this on the site Kickstarter donors built. And I didn’t back more this past year mainly because not much caught my eye — not because I’m against the idea in general. I still think the platform can work, as long as we look out for the abuses.
But I know a lot of you are way more hardline about crowdfunding than I am, so I’d like to hear your thoughts. Do you plan on Kickstarting any video games in 2017? What about MMOs or non-gaming projects? What are your personal rules for engaging in a campaign?
