Ispovest Kickstarter zavisnika posle potrošenih 16,000 dolara

Kingdom Death: Monster

Neosporno je da je Kickstarter doprineo razvoju industrije društvenih igara. Štaviše kompanija Kickstarter je doživela solidan rast zahvaljujući sekciji posvećenoj ovoj industriji. Deo tog rasta je nastao i nekontrolisanim finansiranjem (čitaj – kupovine igara) preko ove platforme. Najsvežiji primer je reddit korisnik Ranker2, koji je u prethodne dve ipo godine potrošio preko 16.000 dolara finansirajući više od 150 Kickstarter projekata za društvene igre.

U reddit postu pod imenom “Proviđenje nakon 2.5 godine finansiranja društvenih igara na Kickstarteru“, Ranker2 piše o svojoj navici da bekuje društvene igre, kako je to na neki način postao zavisan od toga i kako je došao do zaključka da većina društvenih igara koje je podržao na kraju nisu bile zanimljive.

“Proveravao sam svoju Kickstarter listu podržanih projekata da bih proverio šta mi je stiglo a šta nije, kada sam došao do zaključka da je većina igara koje sam finansirao bez veze ili ih retko igram,”navodi Ranker2. “Među ovim igrama postoje naslovi za koje će se boardgame komuna složiti da su uspešni u svakom pogledu, ali to ne znači da je baš taj tip ili žanr igre nešto u čemu ja lično uživam. Prolazeći kroz listu, mogao sam na prste jedne ruke da nabrojim igre, od preko stotinu podržanih projekata, koje stvarno volim.”

Kako se situacija otrgla kontroli? Ranker2 kaže da je ključan faktor strah od propuštanja potencijalno dobre igre ili igre koju su drugi igrači i članovi boardgame komune nahvalili. Ovaj strah čak ima i svoj akronim – FOMO (Fear of Missing Out).

“Podržavanje igara kroz Kickstarter kampanje je stvaralo utisak da pripadam nekom specijalnom insajderskom klubu koji je imao uvid u igre kojih generalna populacija još uvek nije bila ni svesna,”objašnjava Ranker2, “Pratio bih Kickstarter Roundup religiozno. Kako je vreme odmicalo, podržavao sam sve više projekata samo zato što imaju veliki broj bekera – očigledno igra mora biti fantastična jer zašto bi toliko ljudi izabralo da je finansira?”

Ranker2 ističe da finansiranje društvenih igara kroz Kickstarter kampanje kupcu može da uštedi nešto novca, naročito ako kasnije dodatke i ekspanzije za igru koja mu se svidi mora da juri kroz eBay, a nije ih uzeo prvom prilikom tokom Kickstarter kampanje. Sa druge strane, Kickstarter kampanje su izvestan rizik i kocka – plaćate za nezavršen proizvod koji može i ne mora da bude dobar. Uvek postoji šansa da kampanja neće uspeti ili neće iznedriti očekivani kvalitet proizvoda.

“Kada stavim sve na papir, čini mi se da je pravi potez da sednem i sačekam, da se odvoji žito od kukolja i da onda uzmem preko eBaya igre koje dokažu svoj kvalitet.” zaključuje Ranker2. “Imao bih mnogo više novca a da ne pominjemo prostor na policama”.
