Obsidian’s Chris Avellone wants to help hook students, interns and juniors up with new developers.

“If you’re running a Kickstarter and would like to consider a pool of applicants to help you hit your game’s mark, let us know – there may be interns/juniors in your area or could assist remotely with your tasks and help your game shine,” Avellone wrote on his personal blog.

“Obsidian gets applicants for internships all the time from schools across the States, and it may be that if you’re forming a Kickstarter, you may need a lot of technical, production, and development help for tasks that students and juniors would love to do to contribute to their careers and education.”

Obsidian isn’t the only developer to get behind Kickstarter funding in a big way; inXile’s Brain fargo has launched a scheme called Kicking it Forward, in which successfully funded developers return a portion of profits on the finished game to upcoming projects.
