Most crowdfunding projects for video games work one way: you front some cash and get game that someone else makes. Sure, you get warm fuzzies from helping achieve their dream and you might get a shout-out in the credits but it doesn't get you closer to bringing your own game idea to life if that's something you want to do.
The Kickstarter campaign for What's In a Game is going to be different. Anyone who throws some money at the documentary series -- which got teased a bit here -- gets a spot on the beta for the Gameifesto social network. Gameifesto's aim is to link up skilled creators in need of other game-makers' help to get their own development projects off the ground. Not a bad deal if you're passionate about the creation of video games.
