After seeing the success of Wasteland 2 and Double Fine's game, I've been thinking. Could this finally get rid of publishers as we know them? Lately, when we think of publishers, we think of those money grubbing ass hats who give as little as they can to devs while expecting the highest quality. Obviously, not all publishers are like that, but it seems more and more like that with each passing day. Now here's where Kickstarter comes in. When you can give a dev $15 and get a copy of a high quality game, people will jump at it, if big names are attached. And the prizes you get for donating more and more money are also a nice incentive. With Kickstarter devs offering more than publishers can, it makes me wonder. Will publishers have to change their ways? When you can go have people throw money at you with no limit, there's little incentive to go to a publisher. So I believe that publisher will have to start treating devs MUCH better, or they risk losing everything.
