The Magnanimous Inventions of Ben & Mike #1
What happens when Ben Franklin teams up with a mischievous gremlin named Mike? I have no idea but this Kickstarter project promises to tell me. Whatever they get up to, I’m sure it’ll be some funny stuff, and that is why I decided to back the project. I’d tell you to watch the project video but the audio was too low and I couldn’t understand half of what the projects creator was saying.
Truth is I’ve been spending a lot of time on Kickstarter for various reasons. One is to learn from the successes and failures of others so the next time I launch a project of my own (which isn’t far off) I have a better chance of success. Secondly it’s to find new and interesting things to back with what little extra income I have. I’ve found it’s much more rewarding to help fund a film and receive a copy than to go to the store and pick up the latest piece of crap put out by a major studio. The same goes for video games for that matter. Sure there’s always a risk that whatever you back is going to flop and you’ll see nothing for your trouble, but so far I haven’t run into that problem and honestly unless it becomes a common problem I don’t think it’ll stop me from continuing to find interesting things to back.
