Ah yeah, that's different.
I haven't funded any games via Kickstarter. Plenty of books, art projects, and even a friggin bus stop here in town (that was just named one of the top kickstarters of 2012.) No video games. I'm concerned that a lot of the folks trying to make video games are biting off more than they can chew, especially if they're newbies. On the flip side, a lot of industry veteran teams have turned to Kickstarter to fund projects they can't get a big studio to commit to - they're more likely to be the innovators you're thinking of.
What's the latest news on the Ouyo or whatever it's called?
