Despite his fears—as only he could express them—that crowdfunding for video games could become "a dick measuring contest," Twisted Metal creator David Jaffe says he'd consider a Kickstarter project for backing, as he embarks on life starting up a new development studio.
Of course the games development world sat up and took notice of Double Fine studio's Kickstarter project, the No. 1 news event of the week after it raked in more than $1 million (and counting) from gamers wishing to see another graphic adventure from Tim Schafer. "I think the real question whether in the next month, if [Double Fine's campaign] hits $2 million or $8 million, does that signal a new way of funding games?" Jaffe told Gamasutra. "Or is this kind of a one-off thing, because it was led by Tim Schafer? Is this actually moving the needle? That, we don't know."
