Square Enix have revealed a new Kickstarter-ish plan to help developers create games.
Collective is a curated platform that enables creators to post ideas, and gamers to judge whether those ideas should become reality or not. Every idea that’s successful with the community is checked and helped by Square Enix, while a partnership with world-leading crowdfunding platform Indiegogo enables gamers to then back the ideas they love the most.
The aim is to allow developers to showcase projects and for fans to have their say and “champion ideas that you’d like to become reality”
Submitting a pitch is free but any who does will “need to accept some terms and conditions”, perhaps a clause that gives Square Enix first option on the publishing rights for the game.
The interesting part is that some of the older Eidos IP’s will be up for grabs which may include Chuck Rock, Omikron, Shellshock and Legacy Of Kain.
