Great, even Nintendo is exploiting crowdfunding now
I’m sick of hearing about big publishers taking advantage of services like Kickstarter, which is supposed to be for indies, or at least people who would have trouble raising money for their projects themselves otherwise.
And Wario is the last person I’d give money to. Hasn’t he already raked in millions from his WarioWare series? Plus he’s known for running scams, so I don’t trust this Crowdfarter site he just launched at all. His business plan sounds fishy, too — I’m not sure how he expects to make cash by asking people to tweet or like his site.
The rewards don’t even sound that great!:
At 50 KAJILLION coins, you will receive my voice as a ringtone for your too-cool-for-school phone. HOW AWESOME IS THAT?
If I help him make 50 Kajillion coins, the least I’d expect is a DRM-free copy of Game & Wario, a cameo or credit in the game, and a downloadable soundtrack. This is just straight-up greed and an abuse of his fans’ good will. It’s official, Wario now is worse than Penny Arcade.PREORDER Game & Wario (June 23), upcoming games
