Everyone knows about Kickstarter. It's a site where people can chip in to make a person's dream a reality.

But there are some dreams that shouldn't be realized.

This is a thread for terrible Kickstarter projects

A Kickstarter to make a documentary celebrating Brony music, which is like making a documentary celebrating prostate cancer

Tentacle Bento, the game that Gabe of Penny Arcade donated to because he is awful. It is now canceled

Kingdom of Epicland

Internet Meme Playing Cards. Because what better way to show everyone you're a worthless heaving mongoloid with a sub-Family Guy sense of humor?

This guy wants you to give him money to record himself playing video games. Pledge five bucks and he'll sign an empty can of Monster and give it to you.

I just realized something. Make anything related to MLP on Kickstarter and rake-in the dough, even if you don't do anything.

Someone can start a kickstarter on an innovational video game and chances are it'll have to wait for donations unlike any stupid kickstarters done by bronies.

Don't you get it? If we take all the physically attractive fictional characters and make them hideous, society might lower its standards of beauty enough that all the basement-dwelling human blobs with bad skin will be able to leave their parents' houses without everyone shrieking in terror as they race to the nearest church to repent for their sins.

I'm not sure if that the reason.

Looking farther into it, it turns out that Susan Wilson is a millionaire.

From the look of this I'll just say that she's scamming people so she can have more money.

So I think it would be more better for the image to say, "Idiots too smart to fall for your cape scam? Just remember the current gender issues and use your daughter."

Why can't she just get her daughter a copy of RPG Maker, help her through the tutorials and message boards and make something that way? The mother is also a millionaire and I can't find anything about this so called RPG camp.

Well the site is real. (I typed the URL that was in the image for the 5th point on how the Kickstarter was more shadier then it seems. (The second link that I posted.))

But yeah, I think it would have been much easier for the mother to use the message boards and tutorials to help here daughter make a RPG Maker game.

Hey that project by that 9 year old been updating.

Her the thanks part of it:

QUOTE
Dell has invited Mackenzie and me to be their guests at the Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network, June 2-4th in Istanbul, Turkey. This year’s theme, Pay it Forward, reflects Dell & Intel’s commitment to support the next generation of women entrepreneurs and girls. Kenzie will join a group of Turkish girls in a conversation with Elizabeth Gore, Entrepreneur-in-Residence to the United Nations, and Rina Onur, co-founder of Peake Games, one of the Top 3 Social Gaming companies in the world.

·Philip Tan, Creative Director for the MIT Game Lab, is volunteering 1 week of his personal time in the Summer for in-person 1-on-1 mentorship sessions on game production and design with Mackenzie Wilson to help her produce her game. This volunteer time will be given whether or not the Kickstarter succeeds as it is in the spirit of replacing the RPG camp she can no longer attend.

·The MIT Game Lab frequently hosts game jams both online and on-site at MIT. We are in planning talks to host one for parents and kids, but the details have not yet been finalized. This is a regular occurrence at the Game Lab and is not tied to the success of this Kickstarter, but rather in the spirit of this and many other projects where kids make their own games.

·And we just learned Dell is seeding Kenzie’s project with a portable Alienware unit so she can take it with her to Istanbul, MIT, and anywhere else she’ll be working to make her dreams come true.


Whether it a scam or not it seems that this Kickstarter is getting big places involved in this.

So rather than spending his time helping actual inspiring game designers/developers who actually have some idea of what they are doing… he’s going to donate his time to a child who’s making a game on a whim and will probably just lose interest in a few weeks or less? Go Kickstarter!
