Australian indie game company Two Lives Left has decided to release their new iPad game Crabitron in ‘reverse Kickstarter’ style. Since the game has already been developed, contributors can give their support by actually buying the game. The creators call this system the Crabstarter.

Users can give their support of Crabitron, a game about a giant space crab, by buying the game from the iTunes app store. With Crabstarter, the Crabitron backers can see how the game sales are doing and how the game is ranking on the app store. Backers also get to know about future updates and developments. The game creators want to keep working on the game and have set ‘stretch goals’ that they want to accomplish once the development costs are covered by Crabstarter. The stretch goals include higher difficulty levels and other game features.
