Kickstarter Happy Endings
The crowd-funding platform, Kickstarter, is transforming the viability of the indie creator landscape. It provides a means to raise capital directly from consumers who believe in the product before it exists. They pledge these funds because they trust the creator. This grants the author the means to bring their vision to reality, without ceding one whit of ownership or creative control to a soulless publisher.
The videogame space has gotten the most attention, by raising shocking amounts of money, but there are all manner of projects looking for life to be breathed into them. Presumably, some of them deserve it.
Unlike Biggs' rent. Or apparently these peeps.
