so do the gamers and public that gave money to this get their money back??? or how does it work??? ripoff kickstarter if they keeping the money... is that not stealing or at least false advertising or something??
This Williamson guy should have bunged the $28 in him self or got a friend to do it.
The money you pledge doesn't get taken unless the project reaches its target.
haha ok good to know. phew!
I'm amazed he didn't - while it might be dodgy for larger amounts, 0.056% of the total seems harmless. Seems he didn't want it that badly after all.
He probably already put a substantial sum in there to give it an initial push.
Still though... $28 more for a $50k project?
It'd have to make you think just how focused and important it is to them, you'd have to know *if you actually cared* how tight it was going to be going into the final day, whether the deadline is a convenient time of day or inconvenient, you'd think they'd know its going to be very tight. The fact that they let the deadline pass just $28 short of their total, and werent willing to give it that final push over the line, or simply had no idea and either assumed it'd make it, it just doesnt feel like they actually cared, or were that committed to the project to allow that to happen.
Maybe on a few occasions they've thrown in say $100+ to get it close in the hope others would finish the job, so to keep being expected to fund it and still be short $28 maybe they said screw it, its public funding not dev funding.
Tbh I bet those figures are absolute minimum values and he probably hoped he would get (maybe a lot) more and its probably better for the project to fail this way than 1 year down the line after taking peoples money.
It is not so much about the money but more about the interest people show. If the people don't manage to pledge the amount requested then scrap the project and try something else.
