That's what I'm thinking. "Legally obligated" is all well and good but that's still trumped by "you can't get blood from a stone." If they declare bankruptcy, you aren't likely to get much money back.

What is getting clear is that, even if this system REALLY takes off, the publishers are still going to have a role. Kickstarters are mostly going off of name recognition and nostalgia. If you are a brand new game maker, you're not going to have much of a chance so you'll probably have to go to the publishers to get your game started or make the game on an indie budget.

P.S. Dang it, every time Vindicator posts I get the "Johny Sokko" theme song stuck in my head for the rest of the day!
