Larian Studios - Of Kickstarter and Green Steamlight
Swen Vincke from Larian Studios updated his blog. This time he talks about Inquisitor - a game that is also on Steam Greenlight. He thinks Steam Greenlight might become the new Kickstarter. Here's a a relevant quote about this:

Imagine that a to be developed game is both featured on Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight, with the funding of each channel contributing to the development of the game, and the services working together to promote the game to their communities. It would be a very significant boost for game development. Through the Steam account you could even come up with a kind of micro-investment scheme in which players get to invest money, and actually get their investment back once the game ships and sells on Steam (with perhaps a small margin). That might lead to even bigger budgets becoming available through crowd funding.
More information.

Green Steamlight? :)

I think setting up a Kickstarter or Steam Greenlight project where the developer promised to pay 50% of profits back to the backers until they are fully paid back is a potentially brilliant idea. It would bring in new people who think there is nothing to lose and encourage backers to invest more if they believe the project will become successful. As a backer, you could potentially get your rewards for free! Where is the downside?
