Wasteland 2 creator says there’s no Kickstarter fatigue

Kickstarter is not declining in popularity, but developers are finding it increasingly difficult to find popular niches, says InXile Entertainment CEO Brian Fargo.

Speaking toDigital Spy, he said crowdfunding failures were down to the site doing its job – weeding out the projects that consumers don’t want.

"I think the projects that do most well on Kickstarter are things where you’ve been denied the ability to get it somehow, or there’s a hole in the marketplace that needs to be filled with a fanbase behind it,” he said."I don’t think it’s so much it’s a Kickstarter fatigue, but if there isn’t a strong demand – if they think there’s a bunch of those out there – then I think it’s very difficult. I think that’s where some people are hitting some problems."
