    What I don't understand about most of these software/music/movie/etc. Kickstarter projects is that fans/prospective users ostensibly pay to get it made, but then it's usually still proprietary payware when it comes out, as though the developer had just paid for everything out of their own pocket. Some of them are clearly just using Kickstarter as a marketing platform for preorders/merchandising and not primarily funding their project with it, but this one seems like it's going for a more substantial chunk of the budget. I might still spring for this one anyway (and hope there's some non-Steam way to play it), but it still kind of bugs me that the equation seems to be:

    Publisher funds = developer beholden to publisher
    Fans fund = developer beholden to themselves

    Getting Double Fine Production's new game(s) on Linux

    Hi, Tim Schafer and Double Fine Productions are crowdfunding a new adventure game through Kickstarter. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...fine-adventure
    (Official post on Double Fine's site: http://www.doublefine.com/news/comme...nture_is_here/ )

    What can we do to get that game on Linux as soon as possible?

    (There's also talk about Psychonauts 2 being done, since Notch of Minecraft fame said he'd pay a couple million towards it, but that's much less concrete than the one above.)

    At it's current pace, it will easily reach it's goal.
Working...
