“This is not the end of the whole gaming industry as we know it. There still might be a few games made by publishers after today,” said a cheeky Tim Schafer. “If you’ve ever been told you were part of a niche gaming effort, you can now be part of a super niche. Why does a big company get to choose what I watch or play Well, now they can’t. Thank you to everybody on the team, to the backers, and to Cindy at Kickstarter.”
