Ive helped kickstart several adventures. I never pay more than I would p
ay for the game at the store, though. But being a software developer (so knowing how hard it is to make software) and having bought games in the pre-app-store days, my pain threshold is probably higher than that of most younger people today.
FWIW, Ive pledged the equivalent of 75, which is about what I paid fo
r Escape from Monkey Island or Myst V: End of Ages back when they were new.Thats for the boxed edition, too. I probably wouldnt go quite as hig
h if it wasnt the people who did my beloved Myst.
IMHO it depends on what its worth to you. There are few enough adventure
games out there in the Myst or LucasArts style out there that I like to atleast order one when it comes up on Kickstarter, is available for Ma
c or iOS (which is where I can play them).
