No, they work on a bunch of different projects at once. They've had several successful Steam/XBLA titles over the past few years so I doubt they're running short on money. This is just an experiment, they don't "need" to do it per se but it is difficult getting funding for this style of game so they decided to try something new. I wouldn't bother reading much into it.
