Yes, yes, yet another Kickstarter (hopefully not another thread on this particular KS). This one looks a little different though. Crowd funding around a relatively small concept in order to retain creative control seems like a pretty good idea to me. I'd rather see more KickStarters based on small, focused, innovative projects like this instead of, "Hey, we wanna make a game." Also, there is a pretty good Gabe Newell cameo in the pitch video.
It at least looks like it'll be funded, because Neal Stephenson.
I hope this isn't the eleventy-first thread on this. I didn't see anything, but if it is, sorry.
