Default Kickstarter Developer Fights Against EA With A SimCity Clone

I caught wind of this through a friend, and I'm intrigued to see what they do with it. I have to applaud them as this is probably the best way to give the shaft to EA in the long run...

Not my style of game (Civ is probably the only sim I'm interested in), but the kickstarter funding model seems to be the wave of the future for PC gaming and is probably the only way to wrest control away from the big producers.

If this is what it takes to get a decent single player game then so be it. Content quality trumps polish in my books.

Certainly makes me want to give them money.

I'm not a Simcity kind of guy, but I'd do it just to piss off EA

Considering a fifth of that has been raised in less than a week and news has only just started to spread... I think it's a huge possibility this funding will succeed.

I plan to chip in. I just hope I'm not wasting time/money on it. City sims are really not my thing. But I want to contribute just on principle.

Looks like it could be really good. Actually it is starting to sound like the game I wanted Simcity to be. As one comment I saw made said, they could really take advantage of all the hate towards EA.
