No, it's not a democracy, it's a business venture. And ultimately, it is a stupid reason for anybody that wants to see a new LSL game to not back the project. Now, for people that don't really care, it's a reasonable response, but then again, I don't see any reason why they would buy a new one either.
Ultimately, it's not my money, but boycotting the remake is really a silly way of communicating to Al or the owner of the relevant IP that a new LSL game would be popular enough to pay for the production costs.
fair enough... if my reasons aren't good enough, I'll erase myself immediatelly from this world for being unreasonable. *zap*
EDIT: actually, no :) so if I want to see a new 8th part of LSL, does that mean that I must finance all the previous remakes otherwise I'm being stupid?
EDIT2: I'm sorry, I'm having a really terrible day at work so I'm aware of my answers being a bit rude...
Don't worry about it. The point is that somebody has to fund all those games to get to LSL 8. And the quality will in part be based upon the amount of funding they get. Having people boycotting because it isn't LSL8 isn't going to make it more likely that there will be one.
You specifically don't have to give to any of them, however, the better funded are the more extensive the remakes become and the more likely that they'll have time to add meaningful new content to the games.
You could also, presumably, support the project by just waiting until the game is done and buying a copy. The downside there being that the money isn't available to produce a better game.
Ultimately, it's up to you to decide whether or not to buy in on the kickstarter, but if you want LSL8, it's probably better to buy in, even if for just a few dollars. Money talks, but just having a long list of backers also helps even if you're only backing for a couple dollars.
