Invest in 4D Rulers

4D Rulers has posted an announcement directly relating to the viability of this independent developer (Gore), saying the company "is on the brink of destruction or turning into a gold mine." They are now soliciting individual investments to fund development of a multiplayer-only shooter that will be distributed for free and supported by in-game advertisements, an unusual proposal offered as an alternative to shutting the company down altogether. They have raised $27,000 so far, putting them most of the way towards their goal of raising $40,000 for a six month supply of Ramen noodles to fuel the project, offering a return of up to 150% on each investment after the game's completion. Here's a bit:

This plan eliminates the publisher and gives us the creative freedom again, that made a great game like Gore in the first place. We deserve one last chance to pull this company out of the gutter! We've seen some very hard times, and deserve to make it. One last chance to take 10 years of experience, and make a winner! One more shot at hitting the big times. And without a publisher calling the shots, and taking all the proceeds, we can do this. If the online free version doesn't work out, (I don't see how it can fail, each ad pays huge) we can always take the game to retail channels and sell it. But I know it will work. There is no way we won't make back 40k. I'm willing to pay back up to 150% your investment, so if you invest 100 dollars, you will get back up to 150 dollars. I've already raised nearly 7k the first day, but we need more to make it happen.
