For example, let's say someone at Disney wanted to make another game in the Duck Tales series. Well, I don't think Disney would be willing to pay money for Duck Tales 3. They'd see the project as a risky venture which is likely to lose money, seeing as the last game in the series and the TV show it's based on have been dead for over 15 years.
So the Nancy Drew company is going to have a Kickstarter now. Presumably, it's for a game that is hard to fund because it has a risk of being unsuccessful. My guesses are these:
- Nancy Drew Dossier: Ship of Shadows. This game was cancelled at one point, and maybe they want to see if there's enough interest in the game before they resume progress on making it.
- Nancy Drew: Stay Tuned for Danger: Remastered. Someone on Facebook suggested it, and I guess that's possible.
- Nancy Drew: [Insert Any Game Here] for a non-computer platform, like the iPad or the Wii. The last few attempts to port Nancy Drew games to other systems (Message in a Haunted Mansion GBA, Curse of Blackmoor Manor DVD, White Wolf of Icicle Creek Wii) don't seem to have been hugely successful, so I could see the company being reluctant to try another port.
- Some Game Not Starring Nancy Drew At All. Are people interested in seeing them make a game without Nancy Drew in it?
