Thread: Republique (iOS, PC, Mac)

  1. Video games I want are way cooler than charities.

    I haven't seen a kickstarter that I've been interested in since the Double Fine thing, though.

    It depends on the Kickstarter. The ones that have gotten the most attention are from people who have done something, and people have faith in them doing something again. Brian Fargo and Tim Shafer are going to produce. The really nice pen I funded had reviews of prototypes out there. Valdis Story has enough done that it's both looking pretty sharp and I've got no reason to think it won't turn into something worth having. I'd never recommend "I have a dream!" Kickstarters, but there's tons out there that have enough to show that it's ok to fund with a fair amount of confidence.

    For other projects, I'm very tempted to toss these guys $10. I like what they're doing, and they make my section of the world a more interesting place to be. It's more than just "I'll give you this if you give me that", sometimes it's just nice to see something that should exist, actually exist.

    Also, and this is important- try to make sense or stop talking. There's enough words cluttering up the world already.

    Fair enough. But if you're not doing either, you're an asshole.
