The Blurb: It’s the 1950s. There’s always something good on the radio, cherry red Cadillacs cruise the streets and everything is always perfect. Marilyn is still alive and the War is over. America goes to bed, nuclear annihilation postponed another day. Welcome to the American Nightmare.

Here’s a game for ya fan-boy, fork over the cash.

From a word to a word, I was led to a word, from a link to a link…

 

This is a rant about gaming and money and how the industry, and even apparently the indie/small game companies can get greedy.

 

I am a fan of H.P. Lovecraft and Cthulhu Mythos played much into my reading and gaming experience. With that being said, I think backing this Indiegogo project, World War Cthulhu, is a superb idea. I am a fan of some of these authors, the art looks great and the subject matter right up my alley.

 

While checking out the fund raising page, I noticed one of the perks (an expensive one) had something to do with a Cthulhu board game put out by Greeneyegames. A figure based Cthulhu board game?…Can we say Squuuueeeee!

 

I looked it up on line, saw it had a kick starter…one that met, and surpassed it’s $40,000 goal. Understandable that this goal would be quickly met, with Sandy Petersen behind the scene. Yup, it surpassed it into the 7 digit realm, 1.4 million. Holy Dagon! Good Job everyone. So since this was funded, and was looking to be shipped in the spring of 2014, I went to the Greeneyegames web page. And…

 

Yikes!!!! The core game is $160 bucks! Or you can get everything for the game for around $650 bucks. Holy corpo-greed Hastur!!!! Expansions, figures, all seemed on the high end ($55 for an expansion or $25 for figures) , but most indie publishers have to go on the high end, for cost reasons. But the $160 for the core set…could nothing be made for the regular gamer, the ground troops of the industry, the fans. Oh, sorry, that’s right, we do have the deep discounted “get it all” choice.

 

I think that would be a lot of bucks to most peeps, so I checked out Cthulhu Wars fb page…and I am seeing many complaints of about a quite company, not updating or answering queries into where the hell is the shipment. 1.4 million dollars people….

 

I hate seeing greed, and especially from something so fan based, and now I wonder if I should even be backing World War Cthulhu. Guess I’m just a cheap ass blue collared bastard.
