I think I managed to make it all the way through 2020 without Kickstarting a single game, or anything at all, for that matter. Usually there’s something, like a book or a card game, even if it’s not an MMO. But this year, the only thing that tempted me was The Wagadu Chronicles, and I was on too tight a budget to go for it this past fall since I was moving house. I’ll be cheerleading from the sidelines instead!
I’ll never say “all crowdfunding is poison” since MOP exists, quite literally, because of our backers over the last almost six years. But even some of those backers think Kickstarter for MMOs is just the worst, and I know some of you are already ready to proclaim you’re never going to back games on the platform ever again. And frankly, given the actual scams and trainwrecks we’ve seen, I can hardly blame you. It might be better to just hang on to your coin until the game is ready for you.
Will you Kickstart any MMOs in 2021? Did you Kickstart anything last year?
