How is it dishonest or extortion, if everyone knows from the start, that in order to get more content in the game they need more money than in making 1:1 remake?
"Thanks for the pledges, but if you want to see X in the game, pay just a little more!"
Also, does adding a new girl to the game cost *exactly* $150,000?
It's not going to cost exactly $150k, for one thing, the goal was an additional $100k from $550k. For another thing, it's not just creating her, there's writing involved and QA involved and any money that they don't spend on that will be spent on other parts of the game. The girl being added was encouragement and to tell the backers what they would be funding if they got more money.
Extortion would be if they now decided that they won't add her unless they get One miiilion dollars.
Empty wallets, seriously, I just had several KS projects fund in the last 6 weeks and it's not an insignificant amount of money. Also, a lot of people feel like they've paid enough for projects and want to see if these things happen before kicking more cash down the table at devs.
Now that LSL is funded and I've maxed out my pledges elsewhere, I'm not going to be looking at any more KS campaigns unless I've already started looking.
There's some cool projects, but I'm not giving any money to projects that have their funding and the last couple are ones that are likely not to meet their goals. Although, I hope they do as they're cool projects.
