To give a counterpoint: the reason why Mythic is going KS-only is the games would have a prohibitive retail cost (due to the amount of content) and they aren’t willing to compromise their vision since KS now offers them an alternative to the traditional retail-only outlet.

As a reminder: Monolith said they actually lost money on their Conan game when it went retail due to the massive retail discounts they had to give.

Also, a lot of other, smaller games are also KS-only (mainly) due to the fact the creators aren’t able to secure distribution deals because they are either first-timers or too small to get s distribution deal.

We can debate the various merits of the games themselves, but having the KS-only route vs the retail isn’t one worth making.
