    It's not uncommon to see projects canceled and restarted or failed projects doing a second attempt shortly after, however until now I haven't see a third attempt, not on Kickstarter and neither on Indiegogo, I don't know if it's due to some sort of waiting for approval that takes longer in case of repeated attempt of there is some rule in place of which I am unaware of.

    I am inclined to not add the game to the list for two reasons, looks more as a proof of concept than a game and this passage from the Kicksterter page:
    No way that they can finish the game with the asked money, a professional laptop plus Unity pro license is already around 3.000~4.000 €, and they are going to barely making it, if ever.

    This looks very interesting and they aren't going to make it :(

    Hell, they needed 600k to make this a really fine game.

    Pledged... but it's not going to happen.



    Also, it looks like Balrum is not going to make it :(

    Writing for videogames continues to be hard, as does ordering t-shirts.

    Now I've never written anything for money, but I have commissioned a bulk order of custom t-shirts and LET ME TELL YOU BROS it didn't take that goddamn long. I even designed the logo for 'em. Unless Tom's using slow boat from China LundB sweatshops to save himself a few shekels compared to buying them locally I have no fucking idea how that's defeating him.

    I have decided to discontinue the list of all funded projects above 100K, while has been an useful too to monitor the developing of the Kickstarter phenomenon now is simply unmanageable unless I start to develop some kind of automated tool, but non only I don't have the skills nor the will to do so it will be also pointless, this thread is not about data mining after all.

    Donation is a terrible word to use. Contribution or pledge are more correct.

    This boggles my mind. 4.5 million ? Why not simply create the core game...the game you KNOW you can make with that money, and THEN start adding on extras with the load of money still in the bank?

    The thing is, people look at well known developers doing this and then think an "amateur" could never do anything with a small amount of money. Everything is blamed on mysterious forces of the industry, instead of just simply bad business. Now the mistakes of a few rogue developers in dealing with the public (and a huge pile of money) will reflect poorly on ALL of us developers (even the ones like me, who don't just sit in a chair and manage / design...but get down and do all the work for the game on no budget. EXTREMELY different type of development.)

    Will a good freeware game be funded on Kickstarter, if it does not promise any beads and mirrors to donators?
