Autumn Moon coming to a Kickstarter near you

Autumn Moon will jumping on the Kickstarter bandwagon soon. This is not conjecture, or have you not seen Bill's Twitter?

Autumn Moon plans to going to get back to making games soon with the help of Kick Starter. We are currently working on our pitch.

I presume that A Vampyre Story 2 is still tied up with Crimson Cow and that this would be for the prequel and/or altogether new Autumn Moon projects. The Double Fine Kickstarter has inspired a saturation of copycats, but it had the unparagoned advantage of Tim's celebrity status within the industry combined with the ridiculous amount of goodwill his studio has accreted over the past ten years that has expanded beyond niche circles. With household adventure icons like Al Lowe straining to raise half a million dollars, I hope Bill Tiller sets a reachable goal when he joins the fray.

I hate to be cynical, though, and it's hard to be when there's any indication that we'll be getting more graphic adventure games from Bill. The Autumn Moon logo has been collecting dust for three years too many, and I know my wallet will be opening to the cause.

    Looks like the Leisure Suit Larry Kickstarter is going to do just fine, for what it's worth.

    I actually like the idea of supporting projects on Kickstarter more than I do simply purchasing games. There's a tad more risk perhaps, but it's worth it to directly support the developers and to be able to support projects that publishers may have decided against before consumers got to have a say.

    Pity I don't have a lot of 'game budget' right now... It really does seem like there's a bit of a point&click renaissance happening.

    I'm afraid there is at this moment a Kickstarter fatigue, and well-known game-makers are currently struggling to reach their funding goals at KS.
    I'm curious what game Bill will be pitching, AVS or something new?
