I like to help indie developers trying to get funding on Kickstarter. I thought you might like to read about the games I’ve supported over the years!
I like the idea of supporting creators directly. If I see an idea I believe in, it’s nice to know that the people doing the work are getting the money instead of a big faceless publisher. Sure, Kickstarter takes a cut of the proceeds, but that still leaves the creators with a better deal in the long run. And not only that, it allows game developers to work on projects that a big publisher might not be too keen on. We see that a lot in the AAA gaming sector, with endless sequels and cash-ins. Kickstarter lets people take risks.
