The game that taught me english might be coming back? Oh my! Sadly, i still don't have/want a credit card. Then again, they're asking a lot, and judging by how Spud's Quest is doing, i don't think this will end well.
Simple fact is there are endless indie platformers all over Steam and other stores on the PC. There is no great need for them, no real desire built up. Same with point and click adventures and other such things.
The main kickstarter successes either wanted to bring back a dying/dead genre or had big names you can trust attached to them. This kickstarter has neither.
