Let me start this by saying that we talked about the Superhero: 2044 RPG Kickstarter on the last episode of The Hero's Brew podcast. Well, not exactly. The one we talked about had miniatures in addition to the RPG and a goal of $100k. This one has a goal of 100 bucks. I kid you not.
There is a lot of discussion of the current Superhero: 2044 RPG Kickstarter on Facebook. Suffice to say, it is not glowing.You can find a list of the threads Here. Click the link. Read the threads. SEE the fucking attitude this "publisher" has.
So, where are the other problems with this KS?
I'd start with the $100 goal, which sounds to me (especially after the 100k goal was cancelled) to be a simple money grab. Something tells me the end product, if there is one, will not be the product being sold. I could be wrong. Feel free to back and bet against me.
Of course, you have remarks like this from the original KS page:
Yeah, just belittle your backers. Always a selling point. Especially one that is also a publisher.
Did I mention 4, no - now 5 - previous Kickstarters. None have funded. This one has fundsed, but it only had a goal of 100 bucks.
Oh, then there is the Wall of Text:
How about the Risks and Challenges?
Read that first paragraph. Right. Time to move on.
Seriously, that 100 buck goal? Simply so he can say "Look Ma! I'm a success!" No you aren't.
Keep away from this, even with Steve Perrin attached to the project. Bet you didn't know that, did you? Yep.
