This week we look at the crowdfunding (Kickstarter and Gamefound) in it's current state, we then talk about what we look for in a campaign and why we might pass on a campaign. And finally we try and figure out why some gamers, Fletcher, just aren't into crowdfunding in any way.
We don't actually get into the future of crowdfunding as we promise at the beginning of the episode - but spoiler alert, it's only getting bigger.
