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.

According to Steam, I've played the first one for 236 hours. So I'm going to guess I'll probably enjoy another one as well.

Strange that they have to go the crowdsource way, but I guess that's the hip thing to do nowadays.

Edit: The only thing that kinda bugs me is that at $750K, they'll put in cheat protection. Errr, shouldn't you guys have done that to begin with? I played for days to get into the top 10 on my best levels, and when I made it it was fucking awesome (I was #3 and #2 on 2 levels for a little while). Then people found out how to cheat, and suddenly the top 10000 scores are 1273375960392373723 with 132 towers built on a level. Why do we have to pony up money to get you guys to fix this?
