joriandrake: This looks really good, I hope it gets enough attention to be funded o.O
Definitely looks good. AND they promise a GOGkey (only problem is - GOG needs to say yes first...)

They have a SP campaign too, by the description

Well, I was watching the video until they started talking about competitive play and e-sports. Then I read the bolded opening sentence, something about online game. At that point, I just closed the tab.

They might still make an awesome SP campaign too, and if I they do I'll buy the game when it's out. It's not the kind of kickstarted I'd fund, though.

Well I see DRM free and pledge, but then I see it is online, I ask them how will online be DRM free and I got this

"Offline mode is something we may add in the future but we haven't had a huge amount of demand for it. Prismata is fundamentally a competitive online strategy game and offline mode adds little other than the ability to play bots. The demand may change once the campaign gets added, we'll see!

The game itself is DRM-free unlike other free-to-play games like Hearthstone, Team Fortress, etc.. You don't need any installer or anything like that; you can literally just run our .swf in a local flash player if you want. And of course you can copy that swf or share it. But the game doesn't work if you're not online; it's an online game!"

Well I would not invest so much into online game
So its basically an online game. Why not just advertise it as such instead of waffling...geez some devs... :/

Gnostic: Like the recent greywalkers kickstarter, if you play the demo and see the quality of the picture and animation and content they are trying to achieve at their kickstarter page, do you think the game can be created with 40k only?

daveyd: The developers of Graywalkers said they have been in contact with a couple wealthy people who are interested in investing in the game's development if the Kickstarter is successful. (And they're officially funded as of today). Also, they're planning on putting the beta up on Steam Early Access at some point, so they may have some additional funds from that. So I'd guess their total dev budget will end up being something like $250K or more.

Btw, if anyone hasn't voted for Graywalkers on GOG wishlist please do so: http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/graywalkers_purgatory I'd really like to see the DRM-free version here.
Another point of interest is that the hourly rate for developers where they are is significantly lower than in Europe and the US so they get more bang for their buck.

They have also been working with pledgers from their first campaign to collect funds to keep the project afloat while they got ready for their second attempt at kickstarting it. Combined with the funds they already put into the game, essentially they are asking for enough money to finish the game, not to develop the whole thing from scratch.

After talking with them about this following their first failed Kickstarter campaign I think they will be able to finish the game at that cost, though covering their entire investment is likely to require a certain amount of sales outside the Kickstarter but that is the way game development has worked for quite a while.
I think Early access and post release sales projections are perfectly legitimate tools to incorporate into the development plan. For many developers Early Access e.g. is providing access to beta testing at a scale they have not be able to before, along with some income to cover incidental work and delays (which let's face it, are likely to happen, after all programming hasn't moved far enough from punchcards to be qualified as easy or predictable).

I am confident, and the team are nice guys with a lot of passion for the project. I think it will be a great game once it arrives.
