Document the process of learning everything you need to learn and put out several short, free games first and THEN go to Kickstarter. Gives you plenty of opportunity to give up without screwing people over (because you might not actually enjoy it) and if you do get to the kickstarting bit, you can point at all the evidence you've gathered and say "that's what I've done, from nothing and this is where I am going".

The only thing is, anyone can know nothing about programming and game design and art and say "if you give me £10, I'll show you videos of me learning how to code and then give you a game at the end that might be fun, but might not be". That isn't unique or hard to find anywhere, you'll find the biggest successes on Kickstarter are the projects where people think that this is the only time this going to happen. Want another Double Fine Adventure game ever again? Want another Castlevania? Better not wait around because that shit ain't happening unless you give us money right now. So find that one thing that only you can deliver on and then deliver on it. Why do you think they put a timer on this stuff? To make it limited, it's like the anti-sale.

Best of luck.

My name, something cool to add to the end of my name to make it edgy or something, my year of birth (because Willza01-Willza91 were taken) and then I really, really, really like Nine Inch Nails.

I really, really, really, really, really like Batman and the Arkham games (I preordered that Batmobile edition). Can I be excused from this, ma'am?

I don't think so, because no one is being forced to pre order now, it feels more like a way to gauge just how much hype/ initial interest there is in the game for marketing charts for business suits to be proud of/ cry and fire people over. If they were saying "pre order now for x bonuses that will expire in 48 hours", that'd be a bit off, but anyone who pre orders the game now is probably a mega fan who knows they will get this game no matter what, and even if they aren't, there will be plenty of opportunity to check out gameplay before now and release and you can always cancel your pre order :)

On the game: bring it on! HR was one of those rare games that I accidentally spent an entire day lost in and then kept going. I can't wait for this!

I wanna read a fanfic written by this guy, starring Dan.

Don't turn this into something weird.

Dude, it's already a little weird. I'm glad you got that off your chest though, do you feel better about it now? I never watched any of the GI content, but I really love the chemistry between Dan and Drew in MGS and Dan is consistently the best part of quick looks, UPF and the bombcast for me. I'm sorry you feel like you've lost out on this thing, but I know for a fact there is something out there that is just as awesome and you just need to find it.

Stanley Goodspeed, duder.

That's what that stands for, right?

God dammit Paddy, you are the fucking bomb. Gonna miss you on the site and I can't wait to see what you do next, despite what feels like a shitty vocal minority, you will always be a platinum fucking duder on this site to me and I am sure countless others.

Can't wait for that next Evil Bong trilogy, I don't even know what Evil Bong is.
