I'm not sure I agree with 2, but I totally agree with 3 and 4. It's kind of a catch 22: As a KS supporter, you hope the people you're backing are honest in what they can accomplish. But Chris was almost too honest. I didn't follow every update, but I believe he said (based on others comments here) that even IF they made their goal, they still weren't positive they could pull it off? Between that, the general murky way the game was presented, and the layoffs, it's no surprise people didn't hop on board.

I'm all for honesty, don't get me wrong. And I certainly appreciate it when it's potentially my and others money we're talking about. But based on what was said...

Hopefully the reason he halted the KS is a publisher either stepped in with money, or a project to keep them afloat for now. As I said before, I feel bad for Chris and everyone at GPS, both current and former. I totally see his enthusiasm and love of gaming (it's contagious!), and it hurts when things don't pan out. But the project could have been presented better, and IMO, it shouldn't have been launched on the eve of layoffs.
