"kickstarter" is a crowdfunding website for entrepreneurs who have an idea but aren't able or willing to invest money into their project due to whatever reason. (in other words: they want no business risk)

so after a project has been successfully financed... why the ğck do they still charge horrendous amounts of money for their (creative) product? just look at this:



goal: $900000
money they've actually got from the fans: $2933252 (325,92% lmao)

yet they sell the fkn beta access for $25. i mean i know you need servers and stuff where ppl are able to download the digital version but ffs lol they got more than a shitload of money for this crappy looking game why does it still cost that much? $10 or $8 would probably be fkn more than sufficient but noooooo they want to cash in totally. seriously: everything has been paid. all the artists work. all the programmers work. everything. three times. yet they still sell it like their company had to come up for all those expenses.

greedy capitalist bastards.

their company should be reduced to a thin red paste.

I just can't get that excited by a game. They become obsolete pretty quick.
