Default Re: Report To The Stakeholders

The report raises some interesting questions:

"And as we watch the distribution network continue to transform, with shorter sales windows for new products, we direct more of our energy to Kickstarter where we can judge demand for a title before taking the finished work to print."

Do you find that you've had to take on the responsibility for tasks that were previously provided by distributors (pre-order collection, marketing and freight-forwarding to retailers)?

Imagine that you had a built-in world-wide distribution network (like Asmodee). Could you judge demand and manage the sales windows for your games better? Or are the hobby distributors losing their ability to consolidate supply and demand?
