So I have had this question in my head awhile. It seems the new trend these days is to put your game on kickstarter or something like it, gain a lot of interest and money, and develop the game. Now what bothers me a little (not really worth complaining about) is that the development of these games seems to take forever. - Project Zomboid - Last Update July 24th 2012 - Prison Architect - Monthly updates, but very small insignificant mostly (doors now lock, guards have to open every door now, etc) - Castle Story - Honestly....this one is extremely slow...they banked off of kickstarter and have barely put out anything (game wise) since (7-10 months ago) . Do you think that they have lost their incentive because they have already made a huge chunk of change? Do you think that if they were not getting paid in advance they would have more incentive to make things happen faster? I know when we purchase alpha we are really purchasing a final product at a reduced cost, knowing we are going to have to wait for the final product. Honestly though...I do not want to have to wait for a couple of years to receive the game after I have paid for it even knowing I have to wait some time to get the final product. What thoughts does everyone else here have?
