"Ever hear the term "never burn bridges?" Well, Howard Lincoln, the former president of Nintendo US, made our lives miserable during the 1994 Senate Hearings on Video Game Violence. Not only did he quietly suggest to congressman, though the use of Nintendo-supplied and heavily edited footage, that they should demonize Night Trap rather than Nintendo's Mortal Combat, but he also declared publicly that Night Trap would never appear on a Nintendo system. And he was right: as much as Nintendo desperately needs publishers to support their third-place platform, we won't be one of them. There's just too much bad blood between us and them."
I think the bigger question is, why the hell is there a Kickstarter for something like Night Trap? It's like making a Kickstarter for a spiritual follow up to Superman 64.
Either way, this proved my point that some devs (although I keep thinking it was Rockstar North, formerly DMADesign) are still sour over what Nintendo did years ago, despite the changes.
Sorry for the second thread in one day, by the way.
