Game looks so damn good! But why did he chose to privately fund this instead of using a Kickstarter where he "might" get more exposure? That is a lot of $$$ to get this thing going just by word of mouth & media....

Yeah, that's something else that sort of bothers me about this. That's pretty cheap just because he doesn't want to give up a few points in donations - and losing a ton of exposure in the bargain. Bad move IMO. And something else about accountability nags at me with all of this. So there will be a playable version next year, but the game really won't be complete for several years? And it sounds more like an MMO than SP with MP component. Hrm, I dunno. Just doesn't quite add up. I think my focus is going to remain on X-Rebith for now.

A few points? Kickstarter takes either 10 or 15% of your total haul. At 10%, raising 4 million would take a 400k cut. Nothing to sneeze at.

According to this, they take 5%. Amazon payments takes 3-5%. So that's 10, max. Not 15.

Thank you, I couldn't find that link and it had been a while since I heard the percentages.
