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.

If you read the kickstarter page, they explain the financial situation and details. To quote what they said:

"We put everything we had into Defense Grid; we wanted the game to be able to reach a lot of people, and looking back we probably sold the game at too low a price. It paid for itís cost, but not enough for us to make DG2 on our own. "

This is a real shame. I liked Defense Grid a lot, but it seems like a lot of companies, even outside of the video games industry, are constantly on the verge of collapse simply because they didn't spend five minutes with anybody with ANY sort of economics background to determine their pricing scheme, regardless of how good their actual product is. (Iron Lore!)

Luckily for these guys, they are going to make a metric shitload through this Kickstarter. I can't even think of anybody I know who plays games who DIDN'T eventually get Defense Grid at some point in one of the various sales.

I'll probably contribute to this Kickstarter if I don't get utterly bled dry by these Steam sales.
