Reasons To Donate #2 – Because Crowdfunding’s Getting A Bit Silly, Now
Far be it from me to tell someone they shouldn’t ‘follow their dreams’ with every fiber of their being. Hell, that’s what I’m doing. I think crowdfunding is a great avenue for that, giving opportunities to people who would otherwise never get a look in.
Stuff like this, though… Not so much. It’s not just this kid and his Titan, either.
Crowdfunding as a whole has had a few… ‘issues’. I wouldn’t feel comfortable going into too much detail, because I don’t want to look all judgemental and what-not, but if you’re a follower of crowdfunding campaigns, especially within the games industry, you’ve undoubtedly seen one or two that are just… iffy.
BitJackers is not iffy. It’s actually very straightforward, honest, open and pretty simple. As I said in the pitch video and accompanying text, the Arcade mode is done. As a backer, there is no risk to you at all, other than “OH MY GOSH, ZED HAS MET HIS UNTIMELY DEMISE AT THE HANDS OF A ROGUE BUS DRIVER!” or something.
BitJackers is, to toot my own horn a bit, ‘one of the good ones’.
