This is pretty neat... Tim Schafer is the author of a lot of good back-in-the-day Lucasarts adventures, such as Day of the Tentacle, Grim Fandango and Full "I Ain't Puttin' My Lips On That" Throttle. His studio did Brutal Legend and has done some other cool stuff (like a Sesame Street game for Kinect that I wish my kid was old enough to appreciate!). Anyway, he put up a kickstarter for a classic point n' click text adventure with the goal of getting $450k in a month. Well it hit that in less than 9 hours, and is close to a million after like a day. Pretty awesome that they can go direct to customers and skip the traditional publisher model on this one. I threw in $15, I like adventure games!
