Kickstarter is the pinnacle of the Indie era of Video Games
Over at the long-standing video game development website Gamasutra, Andrew Pellerano has a featured post saying Kickstarter threatens innovation and the whole video game industry. This is nonsense, and his own example, meant to be full of impact, doesn’t even hold water.
