|Kickstarter Warning (you should read this)||Locked|

Basically what it says in the link is that the Kickstarter website has no way to refund your money if a project you backed fails. And the developers are not liable for any projects not released.

What did you expect? You are donating the money, not investing!
the purpose of kickstarter like funding in the case of gaming is for the people who never have realeased a game to have a chance, it is not meant as a source of income for existing game studios / existing whatever. It's purpose is to enable the creation of NEW projects.

i was just trying to say that people should be cautious of who they give their money to, thats all.

I only wanted to say, that the pure fact some studio never released a game before, should not stop anyone from donating - quite the contrary. I don't know anything about this particular case though, and I'm not talking about this concrete project.

As long as they have something to show, & are not pitching ideas or blagging, it may or may not be worth the risk, big-name or no-name.
You still have to contend with the fact that some games end up not being that good, too.
At the end of the day, it's a gamble, so place bets wisely.
And would you trust this man with your money?
On a similar note, I'm going to use Kickstarter to raise capital for my CASH 4 GAEMS Money Laundering Service, here's my proposal so far:
