We all did.


Also, they aren't actually throwing money at it, they're just doing it to fuck with him.  It's gonna be really funny if enough people put in ten thousand dollar troll donations that it ends up passing.

You and five friends could dump 200k on him each and let it go until 24 hours before the goal, then all drop out.

Man... if people are actually throwing their money at this guy's ideagamedream, then I think I might actually have a chance on Kickstarter with The Ancients. :|
I wouldnt call 541 dollars in joke pledges "throwing money".(I highly doubt the 10k was by anyone other than the dude in question)

If any of that money was honestly pledged/not by the dude himself, I will eat my pants.

Because they knew what they were being drawn for.

Because Saddness is deep while happyness is shallow. (It isn't true, but if you want something to seem deep just make it sad)

Im never ever, ever giving money to "devs", ever, no matter how poor they are. Especially not after this asshole shows up.

Ideas guys are usually either over ambitious preteens or some random buttbeard that got fired from his office.
I got experience with ideas guys..

I think he means "devs", not actual developers. The guys who have all of ideas but no way to actually make them happen without a team of peoples who may or maynot tell him the idea flatout won't work at the money/timescale its at.

It's known as the Oppai-Kaiju effect. The islands of Japan generate a sort anti-gravity field, which allows breasts to behave as if in microgravity. It's also what allows Godzilla and friends to become 50 stories tall, and lets ninjas run up the side of a skyscraper.

Why in the fuck does that manchild have enough money to own anything at all? The fact that this guy won the lottery burns me to no end. I REALLY wish the lottery was faked like some people say, because this wouldn't have happened.

Well, people win the lottery. Honestly, this guy doesn't seem half bad, he just has a terrible idea for what he wants his game to be, and a terrible kickstarter up. Plus he's a wiccan. That's literally all we know about him, other than him owning a pizza place.

So chill on the personal attacks. People win lotteries all the time, and although we might feel they don't deserve it, it's not a good reason to hate someone outright because of blind luck.

I think that's what driving a lot of people's feelings on this: Bartlett in some ways is a reflection of who all gamers are or have been at some time: full of unachievable ideas, dreams bigger than their abilities and that sort of full-on-nerd-abandon. It's the fact he's an adult that makes it all so galling, because now with money and opportunity....it seems like he's learned little from his time as a gamer about what a game should be.

He's almost like a mirror showing us all the things we enjoy as gamers...but twisted into a form that kind of repulses and embarrasses us. The lottery winnings on top of that just kind of make it seem like god has an extremely strange sense of humor.

But yeah, let's not use that as an excuse to be terrible people. I'm not going to wish him well....but I'm not going to wish him ill either.
