Crowd­fund­ing favours the cre­ator, for both good and bad

There are other gaps in crowd­fund­ing sys­tems be­yond the dan­ger of re­ceiv­ing a duff game or noth­ing at all. Slightly Mad Stu­dios re­cently an­nounced free-to-play racer World Of Speed, while si­mul­ta­ne­ously work­ing on Project Cars, which prom­ises back­ers a share of the game’s prof­its. While cre­ative di­rec­tor Andy Tu­dor con­tends that both games have ben­e­fited from shar­ing tech­nol­ogy and as­sets, it’s un­likely a ma­jor pub­lisher would have left room in Project Cars’ con­tract for Slightly Mad to de­velop a sec­ond rac­ing game us­ing parts of the same en­gine and art for an­other pub­lisher at the same time.
