Well good golly gosh, I got to this a little late, so now instead of commenting on the ridiculous prospect of starting a crowdfunding campaign to send cupcakes to a game design company, I get to comment on the ridiculous prospect of this project being funded rather quickly. That is hilarious and adorable, and I want to pinch this idea’s cute little cheeks.
Cupcakes for Cloud Imperium Gaming was a special little IndieGogo campaign with a simple goal in mind: Send a cupcake to every employee at Cloud Imperium Gaming Studios as a little “thank you” from the Star Citizen community to the folks who made it so grand to be a citizen of the ‘Verse. “So,” you may be asking in futility (I’m a paragraph on the internet, I can’t hear your mouth, only your comments, and only if they’re typed.), “How did they get this funded? I mean, were there some slammin’ rad rewards tiers?” Nah. They just wanted donations. Any over-funding they get from the campaign (which is looking to be about $500 at the rate things are going) will be put on a Star Citizen gift card and given away in a contest. That’s it.
This is perfect and hilarious. I have nothing else to say. This is adorable, and it should happen more. I want to make the best game in the world solely so people will buy me $500 worth of cupcakes while giving back to the gaming community. I hope this doesn’t amount to some scandal, because offering something like a gift card does technically violate the Terms and Conditions of IndieGogo, so donate at your own risk. If you’d like to donate to what is now a giant gift card raffle/lottery, check out this delicious IndieGogo campaign. These cupcakes will not be released on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, or Android because cupcakes are sticky and tiny computers are expensive.
