Some major publishers looking to exploit Kickstarter says Obsidian
The boss of Fallout: New Vegas developer, Obsidian has said that they have been approached by some major publishers looking to use the studio to front Kickstarter projects.
Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian stated that some publishers had approached them as suggested they set up and publish a Kickstarter project which they will not own the rights for and only receive percentage of the total profits. He didn't name the publishers in question.
"We were actually contacted by some publishers over the last few months that wanted to use us to do a Kickstarter," Urquhart explained. "I said to them 'So, you want us to do a Kickstarter for, using our name, we then get the Kickstarter money to make the game, you then publish the game, but we then don't get to keep the brand we make and we only get a portion of the profits' They said, 'Yes'."
Obsidian has already seen plenty of success on Kickstarter with their Project Eternity raising over 1.6 million USD so far.
