Default Kickstarter - Thorvalla Waiting for your Pledge

Maybe that's a trend? Only conservative projects by famous devs get funded?

I'm not sure about the return of the publisher model. A year ago there was no money to be found for hardcore RPGs. No publisher wanted to touch them. Why should this change? But I'm not sure indies have a future on Kickstarter too.
Maybe a Kickstarter 2.0 will roll up the market? So far only US & UK projects are possible and the payment options are limited. You can't pay via Amazon.de for example (without a credit card, which most Germans don't have). A crowdfunding site which solves these problems could reach a significantly bigger audience.
