So then he's beholden to whoever is giving him the 10 million. How is that a good thing? This is why I said I don't like him doing a KS because he's just using it to prove to a publisher that it's viable, and he really isn't beholden to the KS backers - which he should be. That's why I'm not backing this.

I am/was unaware a major investor may be involved in this way and if this is true I am cancelling my pledge. Gonna read up a bit, if this is the situation I am out.

It's true. However, I'm not really sure what you were expecting. Did you really think Roberts could make the game he's proposing with only $2 million? Hell, even $12 million seems low. I'd be shocked if the finished game has both the multiplayer and single-player components intact.

I don't really see the issue with additional funding sources. If a private investor is willing to finance a PC-exclusive hardcore space sim, what's the problem? That's already more than any big publisher is willing to do. If the game is a success, that might even change.
