Crowd-Funding

Let’s just talk for a second about some silly games that are getting crowd-funded.

Rock Simulator… 

https://www.indiegogo.com/project/rock-simulator-2014/embedded
“For a long time, there has been one game missing from the market, a genuine rock simulator. I am here for you today to introduce you to Rock Simulator 2014.” 

In case you’ve always wondered what it’d be like to be a rock. If you fund a certain dollar amount they’ll send you a REAL rock!

And then there is:

Grass Simulator

Hey you! Yes you! Man in the blue sweater, Lady with the pink shoes, Little boy with your pet goat.
Have you waited all your life for a game that brings plot and gameplay together?

Well we have the game for you, With full realistic grass physics, beautiful sky-boxes, Cows?!

Grass Simulator is the game of the next generation, Here are the awesome things possible in Grass Simulator.

– Grass
– Dynamic Grass Graphics
– Realistic Weather
– Wonderful Environment
– Cows?!
– More Grass 





Guys, people are playing real dollars to fund these games. Let me say that again, people, human beings are paying real money to make these games a reality… 

Let that sink in for a moment.

Why not put that money to cool games like:

Timespinner
“Timespinner is a 2D Metroidvania Platformer for PC, Mac OS X, and Linux. At its heart, the game is a child of the great pixelated classics of the SNES and PS1 age. From the rich story worlds of Star Ocean, the expansive gothic castle exploration in Castlevania, and the tight gameplay of Megaman X, Timespinner seeks to weave all of these elements into one amazing game.”

or

 Together: Amna & Saif
“The core of Together is interdependence. Everything requires two players, working together.  Designing co-op from the ground up we are able to explore and do things that would otherwise be impossible.
Every aspect of the game is designed for player interaction. To progress you have to think about what is best for each other, not just yourself. Together highlights the benefits that gaming can have on a relationship. It goes beyond having a conversation or doing something together. Interdependence is a key quality in a rewarding and successful relationship and Together allows you to experience and practice it in a tangible way. “

 

I just want to see some potentially awesome games get crowd-funding and these … “simulator” games to be over with.

What do you think of these silly simulator games becoming a reality?

  1. I would love to say “to each their own” but in this case I just can't. I think of how much funding is needed for potentially awesome independent projects, and how some people donate to these simulator style games for the lolz (quote unquote via an acquaintance of mine who has done this. Yikes.) and think how much more rewarding it would be to take that dollar “for the lolz” and throw it into something with potential and see what comes from it. I mean, I think everyone deserves support and if people genuinely enjoy these games, of course donate, but it's definitely not for me, and I think jokingly supporting them is kind of damaging when you could genuinely be supporting someone else
