I ask you guys this every year. And every year I get the same wary replies. Everyone’s sick of Kickstarter. Nobody trusts Kickstarter games. We’re all still waiting on the first generation of titles we poured money into ages ago to actually launch. Or worse, we’ve sunk money into games that have already gone belly up. We’re not keen to do it again.
I did back one MMORPG on the crowdfunding platform this year, however: I couldn’t resist Book of Travels. It’s beautiful and weird, and the studio is one I was already familiar with and trusted from its other games. As I told one friend, I think it’s a sure bet we’ll see the game, and even if I don’t, I’ll be glad to have contributed to the success of something unique in our genre.
Did you back anything in 2019? And will you kickstart any MMOs in 2020?
