I've never gotten to play RCT back in the day or even now that it's available on IOS and Android. What do you guys think about this offer? Here is the wording of the original email and a link for more info.

Invest any amount into the campaign (with $250 as a minimum), and earn your pro rata share of 50% of profits until you made 120% of your original investment; after which you'll earn your pro rata share of 25% of profits until 18 months after the worldwide launch of the game,

Numbers look like this? :
$1000 investment
?



Not sure if good investment. $250 might be worth entertainment value. I've lost lot more than that gambling in one night. But why crowdfund vs. Get money in different way.

I've spent countless hours on the PC version with the mouse/kb combo. Not sure how I would play on the Switch. Plus Atari asking for our investment doesn't sound too promising for a good game.
