Kickstarter-exclusive digital content could require a log-in system which then could prevent the game from being truly DRM-free or the controversial topic of DLC. I've had a game release a file to be dragged into the install folder to unlock the Kickstarter skin. Sometimes it is a cheatcode the creators asks to not have shared outside of the backers of the game. There could also be instructions for how to access a hidden area. I do think Kickstarter-exclusive content can be a good thing, especially for MMOs, but I like to see at least some of it included at the main pre-order tier instead of high priced ones.
Doesn't happen much anymore, as I suspect we are kind of old news in the Kickstarter world. For a few months after our campaign though, we were inundated with requests for advice, reviewing KS pages, etc. Most of the folks who got in touch seemed to be capable and passionate devs, so dispensing any of the little wisdom we may have was a no brainer. There were a couple of...suspect cases, but such is the world.Delver's Drop
was one of the big campaigns when it ran and people often want to try to emulate success. Projects like Hyper Light Drifter
should now stand out more recently in the memories of project creators scrambling to get ready to launch. Delver's Drop
being at PAX also likely contributed to people coming to you for advice. On a side note, it is also common for the forums of kickstarted games to eventually slow down until the game launches. It can be easy to wander off to the forums of a newer kickstarted game. When the game launches then backers flood back in, but sometimes the forums become empty again and other times they thrive after. I think it depends on how many backers there are to keep the forums interesting.
Paradise Lost: First Contact
is a stealth game where you control an alien plant-like lifeform.
There is a project for The 7th Guest 3: The Collector
. The original game was one of the first CD-ROM distributed games and had full motion video.
A countdown has started for the Monday launch of STASIS
. That could become one of the big campaigns for November. The execution of the isometric graphics is very interesting.
