The LA Times interviews Bill entirely too late

A good three weeks past when it might have had an impact, The LA Times has interviewed Bill Tiller, discussing his Kickstarter and career at large.

The interview is good, so check it out, but as far as its role in raising awareness, it's surely too little too late.

I'm gonna heap a little bit of scorn here: where the heck was the gaming press to expose this project? I don't think there was one word of coverage from the likes of Gamasutra, Shacknews, Kotaku or Joystiq.

    I submitted news to all of them (and more) about it, but no one cared (only Blues News and Just Adventure).

    Bill said that he had trouble with people not having faith that he'd actually deliver a game from the kickstater money, and expressed bewilderment at that notion since he's finished and released two games before.

    I agree wholeheartedly with his statements. The only reason the announced Autumn Moon games haven't been released is lack of funds, not lack of effort by Bill or the rest of the team. Since getting funds for projects that normally wouldn't be able to get them is what kickstarter is all about, it seems to go against the spirit of kickstarter (and is just plain mean) to punish the artist for his inability to secure funds through traditional means.
