I’ll back pretty much any adventure game on Kickstarter, but the ones that really catch my eye are those with something special. In the case of Ghostdream, it has to be the artwork. I love the otherworldly look to the game and the premise is interesting enough to instantly back it. However, it has also come to my attention that it’s currently running on Indiegogo as well.


I don’t mind someone going through a site other than Kickstarter, but I do with them on several sites concurrently. I understand one reason is due to not enough traffic for Ghostdream on Indiegogo, but it is still a pet peeve. My guess is that nobody’s backing the first campaign due to flexible funding. Nobody I know likes that as the developer will get everything pledged, successful or not.


I do still love the idea behind Ghostdream and I backed the Kickstarter as soon as I heard about it. I do wish that they brought up the Indiegogo campaign somewhere in the pitch, though.
