Kickstarter: Pinkerton Road: "A Year of Adventure"

I'm thinking maybe put up a kickstarter only thread for this stuff. But there really cant be that many surely.. So this one is from Jane Jensen. The non xbox gamers will know her name from the Gabriel Knight series, and the recent Gray Matter. If you havent played them you should just never come into the pc section again and stick to halo threads.

Now this one is a little different to normal kickstarter things. You're not actually funding 1 game. You're funding multiple games which you will receive, all of them, during the current year length. So if they make 3-5 games by say next june or whatever the date commencement this year is, you get all of them. Pretty cool.

OK. What is CSG?

CSG = Community Supported Gaming. We stole the idea from CSAs – Community Supported Agriculture -- where customers subscribe to a small organic farm for a season and get a basket of just-picked produce each week. This supports the small farmer while the customers get the freshest food available and a direct relationship with the person growing their food.

So what’s included in the Pinkerton Road 2012-2013 CSG season?

This first CSG season will run from the present through end of June 2013. How many games will we do in that period? That depends on what we raise during funding. [NOTE: The games below are guaranteed to you as a CSG member of this kickstarter drive, even if they ship late.]

If we meet our Kickstarter goal the season will include:
* An all new original adventure game by Jane in the vein of Gabriel Knight and Gray Matter (no pun intended) on PC download, due approximately Mar 2013.

* Lola and Lucy’s Big Adventure (a kid’s e-book/game written by Jane that we’ve funded ourselves to help raise money for the studio. It’s nearly finished and will be released Summer 2012.)

If we raise $600K or more the season will ALSO include:
* A second Jane Jensen adventure game on PC download, due approximately June 2013. We have a white board full of concepts that have been crawling around in Jane’s brain for years. Or it might be another of the 3 concepts below -- if it gets enough of your votes.

Lower down the page shows 3 game concepts they have in mind, and the cool part is the community will choose which one they want to have made first. And theres other info too. I'll be signing up for sure. I love her shit. Its a fucking crime she hasnt made more games.
