Asking $48 for a game that's not even in alpha, less than a preorder, is a bit much. It's a kickstarter greed record. Yes, it's two copies, but it's still awkward. Certainly not everyone has a friend who is missing this type of a game.

    It will probably end with 22cans opening some extra, cheaper backer tiers. But if they remain stubborn, it may not even be funded.
    I was right. A limited 20 GBP tier has just been added.

    Seeing how Limit Theory already reached its goal within the first week I wonder if there are people who are more willing to pledge for an already 100%+ funded game since they already now it will get made (or at least started). I know I did so in the past.

    (talking about projects which won't be limited to the backers but have a public release later on of course)
    - If the sound of Samuel Barber's "Adagio For Strings" makes you think of Kharak burning instead of the Vietnamese jungle, most of your youth happened during the 90s. -

    When I see something that I view as "Hmm, I dunno. It has potential" I'll just hit "remind me later" and either wait until the end or the weekly RPS kickstarter feature to make a proper decision. A lot of times that does involve "Do people seem to like this?"

    If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

    I sometimes do this with the more promising entries, like with Maia and Limit Theory. None of them I backed straight up but I watched them for a bit to see how people were reacting. Though in this case both of them showed quite a fair bit of promise and had demonstrated sound concepts and looked like they had a decent chance of achieving those goals.


    Generally I don't back Kickstarter projects even if I'm interested in the game idea, simply because I don't know how the final product will turn out. I don't like backing projects unless they give me a fairly clear idea of how it'll end up when it's finished, and few of them really manage to do a good job of that. They mostly refer to gameplay mechanics or their inspiration (some of them are relying too heavily on nostalgia) which doesn't really tell me much about what I'm likely to get when the game is finished. For example I bought into the Alpha of Minecraft expecting the survival aspect to be a hell of a lot more hazardous and survivalist than what we ended up with (where a 3 block high wall with a lip is enough to defeat everything).
