Kickstart my heart.

As you may have noticed kickstarter has become quite popular to get old games back to life (or breath new life into old games).
Wasteland is one of those games that got me excited, Wasteland is basicly  what brought (the awesome) Fallout series to life, so needles to say the Wasteland 2 kickstarter got me all worked up :)



Another one of those classics is Shadowrun, coming back to life as Shadowrun Returns through kickstarter.

I think it is a great idea to get funds this way, screw publishers, let's make games the fans want and not what publishers want, all they are interrested in is money.
It is pretty amazing to see the internet/fans come together and get things funded, i really hope we are going to see more like this in the future.
No longer are we told what to play by publishers, we fund and play the games we want to play.

Publishers are probably going a bit nervous now with this kickstarter trend going on :)

Anyways needless to say i was very happy to take part in these kickstarters and did help by funding both Wasteland 2 and Shadowrun Returns (i went for the $100 options) and can't wait to see what the games are going to be like.

I was also very happy to see they both added Paypal options, since kickstarter only accepts creditcards and i don't use creditcards.
