Yogcasts minecraft style open world developer just failed to deliver after a huge kickstarter budget, so they gave out keys to TUG which is another similar game in alpha. Here is a blog post from two years ago from an experienced dev saying why this kickstarter was 'screwed' before it even happened.http://projectorgames.net/blog/?p=209
Anyone that asks for a huge feature list of their games needs to read this post. This guy has enough experience that every feature bullet on he is able to see how many people months budget it will take to do. Basically saying there is a reason that AAA quality with lots of features cut that people want still take a century of person years to make. The term AAA quality on any kickstarter should send up a red flag, even if it is an established studio, and most certainly if it is a unemployed dreamer.
BTW this guys fresh grad numbers are way off because of the new silicon valley .com boom. He says fresh grad is $25K salary + $25K overhead. But when you have kids leaving college to startup .coms and becoming billionaires, has resulted in silicon valley salary for a fresh BSCS of $85k, and much higher overheads because of stocks and campus amenities. Even if you do not have a company there, you are competing with them because of the new millennial generation that is happy to be a migratory worker and does not understand what COLA really means (it is not what you make, it is what you spend)
