Defense Grid 2 Kickstarter

This Kickstarter looks to jumpstart development of Defense Grid 2, a sequel to Hidden Path Entertainment's tower defense game. This one has an interesting approach, as there are funding goals to hit along the way. So if they raise $250K, they will create an eight-level expansion for the original Defense Grid; if they raise $500K they will build a new engine for a Defense Grid 2 remake with co-op multiplayer; at $750K they will add a level editor and other platforms; and if the campaign hits the $1M mark, they will be able to create the full sequel of their dreams. Thanks Bob.

I feel it is a problem. Kickstarter is (to my knowledge) supposed to help finance those who have tried and couldn't get financed, a last choice option.

It's unfortunate that this core philosophy behind Kickstarter is getting more and more diluted. You now have Kickstarters for projects that are well into development but the developers decided that they might as well get paid for it early, or you have multi million dollar corporations running Kickstarters to remove ads from their site or the Kickstarter where the game is getting made anyway but the developer still asks for money so that they don't have to get venture capital and keep their IP rights. The thought process behind this particular Kickstarter is that they could probably make the game even if they don't get crowdfunded, but why not take money from potential customers right at the beginning anyway? It's a little sad what this has devolved into.
