Tim Schafer (Grim Fandango, Day of the Tentacle and more fame) & Ron Gilbert (Monkey Island and more fame) are still raising money for the production of their new adventure game on Kickstarter.com. It ends on March 13 (2 days away). They have done exceedingly well (the more collected, the more they can do with the production). Kickstarter is a website where people with a project in mind, like making a new movie or writing a symphony, or developing a new game, etc., can ask the public to contribute the necessary funds to finish the project. If the project is approved by Kickstarter, the project goes live online with the request. Developers don't have to go to publishers this way and beg for support. Most of us know how that goes for adventure games, don't we?
What do we get for our contribution? A copy of the game and some say in its development through the playing of a beta and much more depending on the amount of your contribution. Have a look!
