Publisher Exploiting An Obsidian Kickstarter

Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart has revealed that an unnamed publisher tried to use his company to exploit an Obsidian Kickstarter project:

"We were actually contacted by some publishers over the last few months that wanted to use us to do a Kickstarter," he revealed on his team's own KS page. "I said to them 'So, you want us to do a Kickstarter for, using our name, we then get the Kickstarter money to make the game, you then publish the game, but we then don't get to keep the brand we make and we only get a portion of the profits.'

"They said, 'Yes'."
It seems it has begun. Publishers are now noticing the large impact of Kickstarter games and want to exploit it for their own profits, and only to the benefit them, not the Developer. Thankfully Feargus laughed at them and then started their own successful Project Eternity Kickstarter. 100% Publisher Scam Free.
