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.

Yeah, it has downsides, I agree. On the other hand, how else is he going to make a game like this? Kickstarter is great for some games, but you can't get the AAA production values games done with it.

From the interview he gave, it seemed like it wasn't an actual publisher that had the money, but more of a private investor who obviously wants to make money, but trusts Roberts to get it done. (unlike publishers who always feel they know better how to make a game.)
