Welcome to the 50th Episode of Funding the Dream on Kickstarter. This episode is just you and me talking about the state of the industry and the tsunami that is coming.
There are currently 90 active game projects on Kickstarter right now. Four games have broken the $100,000 mark and 2 have broken the $200,000 mark.
And that is just the first four months of April. I'm estimating that there will be 400 to 600 successful game projects in 2012. And here's the problem: Where are we going to put them all? I don't mean where are we going to fit them on our shelves at home. I mean, what store has the room on their shelves to put 400 new games, not counting the hundreds they receive already through normal channels.
The system is broken and 2012 is the year the system breaks down. Take a listen and join me and you and I chat about the state of the industry and the new world order that is emerging.
