Kickstarter Video Game Project Exposed as a Scam

Posted by | May 3, 2012

The internet is such a cynical place, gamers even more so. An attempted scam using the popular Kickstarter project funding service was recently exposed by the gaming community. The project was a game called Mythic: The Story of Gods and Man, which promised the gameplay of World of Warcraft coupled to the graphics of Skyrim. That alone should have raised an eyebrow, as a game like that would cost millions to develop. What really set off the warning sirens were the rewards promised for funding the game. Check out this article to see what happened. BBC News has the story.

    Where there’s money, there will be scammers. The best defense is to only fund projects from names you trust, and watch out for offers that are too grandiose. Scammers have no sense of scale.
