This is everywhere in the gaming world but I feel like I need to write about this, Double Fine has just changed the gaming industry much like how Notch and Minecraft has. I am sure everyone knows about the kickstarter fund Double Fine has started, which has now raised to this date (Feb. 12) $1.6 million with over 47,000 backers. The goal of $400,000 was reached in under 8 hours, these facts are mind blowing. The Kickstarter fund is nothing new, it helps people from different industries to put forth their idea in the field of movies, games, comics, art and so on. Setting a goal and a time limit to reach this goal, anyone can donate towards this goal and the creator will set prizes or awards people can get if they donate a certain amount. If you donate the highest amount you will get that reward and everything else below it. It is a nice feature to have people be part of something new as well as creators making something they will pour their heart and soul into.

This give hope to all budding game, film, comic makers that if we believe enough in something maybe others will help you reach your goal of getting it front of the world. One day, I hope no I know I will have my own game published in a similar fashion and I will be the happiest person at that moment (Till I get my next game made =D)
