Kickstarter isn't a kind place. Well, OK, aside from the whole 'free money from the absurd generosity of people's hearts' thing, I mean. But these days, if you don't understand how to work the machine, it'll chew you up and spit you right back out ' probably with even fewer pennies to your name than when you first started. Even game design legends aren't safe, as evidenced by high-profile failures like Old-School RPG
and Dizzy Returns
, and Peter Molyneux's Project GODUS
certainly looked like it could go either way. For better or worse, though, the Kickstarter deities have officially accepted fans' offering, and GODUS will now get its wings.
