    Roller Coaster Tycoon for Switch! Basically invest $1,500 to secure a physical copy.

    Link to article: https://www.gamespot.com/articles/at...aign=hub_forum

    Crowd-funding site: https://www.startengine.com/atari-game-partners

    Sounds like a terrible idea...

    Someone told me that El Bandito already invested the $1500.

    Yeah.... no

    Only done one KS and that was Muv Luv, which I'm having doubts I'll ever get my physical vita copy. -_-
    Nobody will tell me how to live.

    Lol, I worry about that too. But it's the only lagging KS I've got right now.

    Lol, I feel like "fund my game" projects have finally jumped the shark.

    Best part, is if you're an investor they can steal all your money and just say the product failed to launch.

    Well that's an interesting idea. Marketing a sim like this as an investment, it almost seems worthwhile. But it's clearly not. You're dumping $1500 into this one game. Even if it makes money they just need some creative accounting to claim all the profits were paid into the companies wages, and the investors get nothing back.

    Exactly. 0 liablity on their end, 0 recourse on your end.

    To be honest, I'd consider it less of a scam if it wasn't like one of the largest video game publishers in existence.

    This is so incredibly dumb. If this new "Atari" does not have the capital to publish games, then they have no hope of succeeding.

    All my kickstarter backings have been a raging success for me.
