Holy shit, it's a fucking video game. Perhaps it's because I don't follow other mediums as closesly, but there doesn't seem to be the same drama surrounding film or books.

Keep in mind that there are people involved in this who have individually spent literally thousands of dollars on this clusterfuck, it's a pretty unique piece of crazy for sure.

Films and books don't crowdfund 90 million dollars and then fail to produce what's promised. They only do this with private funding.

Imagine if they did.

Book and movie fans would be up in arms too.

I have heard that the video game section of KS is the worst; in all the other types, apparently, there's a higher rate of success. I'm not sure if that includes the technology section but simple stuff like comics, etc.

I'm pretty sure there's been plenty of film drama over the years but I wonder if it has to do with the technological based aspect of it now days - everybody's on the internet talking shit instead of doing it personally so nobody hears about it. Plus it might simply be the nature of film PR being more solid - who's stopping developers from acting like children online? The vast majority of people have these sort of moments but at least they're sensible enough to keep it private and attempt some rational response once they've claimed down.
