First EA release the indie bundle, now they are jumping onto Kickstarter.
That's right folks, for just $450,000 you can fund Mirrors Edge 2.....
Just kidding. EA are waiving all distribution fees for crowd-funded games on Origin, for 90 days after the official launch. The offer is extended only to "fully-funded, complete and ready-to-publish games designed for digital download to PC platforms ".
We already know that Brian Fargo (Wasteland 2) and Jane Jensen (Moebius) are fully supporting the move from Origin.
The public support for crowd-funding creative game ideas coming from small developers today is nothing short of phenomenal. It's also incredibly healthy for the gaming industry. Gamers around the world deserve a chance to play every great new game, and by waiving distribution fees on Origin we can help make that a reality for successfully crowd-funded developers." - David DeMartini, EA.
Good news indeed, let's see if Valve try to battle this one out.
