  • COE funding continues to grow

    I see what you are saying but I don't believe it is deception. They are marketing their product like anyone else would. Kickstarters are high risk projects, it is why they are here in the first place.

    I think we can stop playing with these semantics and start calling it what it is: another Kickstarter game that's intentionally overestimating development progress to convince players to spend money to float the next year of actual, sluggish progress.
    Not any different from successful publishers that overstate their game's qualities. The key point is; will there be a game at the end of it? And since it is Kickstarter people should know already there is a non-negligible risk that the project could fail. They have to decide for themselves whether they are willing to risk money to give the project a chance of succeeding.

    I really do not understand the appeal of mobile games.

    No you are saying their intentions are dishonest. You have nothing to base that on.

    These developers are choosing to forego or supplement those funding attempts by approaching a segment they are well aware they can mislead unlike traditional investors. 

    This is pure hyperbole regarding the developers intentions AGAIN! Have an issue with Kickstarter sure but don't start badmouthing people with baseless accusations like that.

    Besides you cannot compare investors who are looking to make a profit vs a gamer who is making a donation who is not looking to make a profit. Their risk profiles are completely different and a gamer will donate in situations that an investor would not invest. Not to mention the size of the investment vs average donation.

    The vast majority of Kickstarter backers are willing to lose that money for the hope they simply get a product that the mainstream developers are not willing to produce. This is what it boils down to. Should there be a better infrastructure where backers own shares? That is worth looking into but not as a replacement for Kickstarter.
