More Project Eternity Goals

The Kickstarter Campaign for Obsidian Entertainment's Project Eternity shows this fundraiser has passed its $2.6 million stretch goal, and announces the rewards that go along with that milestone (thanks nin). They have complete details on rewards for every tier, as well as the artwork that will go on some of the reward merchandise. Word is they will close out this campaign with their foot firmly on the accelerator:

We have a lot of great stuff planned over the next six days. Josh is doing a lore update tomorrow along with some other BIG announcements, we are organizing an AMA over on reddit so everyone can ask Tim, Josh, Feargus and myself (Adam) a ton of questions, and we are getting our crazy ideas put together for the live stream of the last hours of the campaign next Tuesday.

You do realize that at least 4 out 5 kickstarters will fail. That is pretty much throwing your money away. Fools always flock to a losing deal.

Fools will talk out of their ass and make up bullshit pseudo-theories, like the quote above.

Eh, some will fail...so what. It is just another kind of investment, and all investments have risks. If I buy stocks, some of those are going to lose money occasionally. Kickstarter lets me be very specific about what I choose to support, and it isn't like folks aren't aware of the risks.

I guess I just don't understand the doomsayer stance. Obviously we all do it to some extent, I don't think there are many of us here that can claim to not have ever made a prediction of doom about something or another. A great many folks here are predicting the failure of Windows 8, or at least hoping for it, for example. It just seems odd to me to go after something like Kickstarter. A lot of upside, very little downside...very little investment required. It is like saying 4/5 self published books suck. So what if they do? Isn't that missing the point?
