Crowdfunding Fraudster: Kickstarter Suspends Shady Campaign RAW

Check out the .gif image above. What if I told you this game was being worked on by a team of three people? What if I then told you that this game is being funded for just $78 thousand? What if I then told you that the dev team hopes to have this out by […]

Demonstrable: Small Saga Public Demo

Small Saga is utterly adorable. I found this title while browsing through the latest Kickstarter games and after playing through the demo I really want to talk about it. The good news is that Small Saga has already reached its goal. I won’t be contributing to the campaign because I was burned out on those […]

Fraudster: 2a:  a person who is not what he or she pretends to be :impostor; When it comes to fraudsters showcased here on MMO Fallout, Jeremy Soule may be the worst.

Crowdfunding Fraudsters Update: Indiegogo Sends RCL To Collections

Let’s get one thing straight: The Spectrum Vega Plus does not exist and Retro Computers Ltd. has lied every step of the way. On to the story.

I take a lot of time to carefully parse my statements so that we’re […]

Fig Claims 4 of Top 10 Crowdfunded Games In 2016

When I say that Fig carries four of the top 10 funded games in 2016, your answer is probably “of course, they curate the list of games they put up.” As someone who previously had doubt about Fig as a crowdfunding platform, I’m happy to see that the service is apparently finding its footing.

Crowdfunding Fraudsters: Save Asheron’s Call Gofundme

It’s been a while. Crowdfunding Fraudsters is a recurring column here at MMO Fallout where I look at campaigns on Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and Gofundme that, in my opinion, need a good going over with a fine tooth comb. The use of the term fraudster does not imply malice, but rather the idea that the creator is […]
