Every time I watch his updates, I just giggle at Braben's terse "Thank you for all the support" crap and no footage of any kind whatsoever other than his talking face in front of a monitor that shows a few screenshots they whipped together in a day. I feel sorry for all the people who support that.

I have no idea why anyone would support that, in it's given state.

I pretty much grew up on Doom/Quake, Wing Commander/Strike Commander, System Shock, Syndicate, Warcraft.

If ID, Ex Origin, Ex LG, Ex Bullfrog, Ex Blizzard North, had a kickstarter for something I think I'd like, I would give them the benefit of a doubt.

I donated.
If it works out, great.
If not, then I gave a hand to a guy that gave me a lot of fun when I was a kid.
I'm not gonna feel bad about it either way.

I would add that venture capital isn't for people that are not 'ok with losing money time to time'.
We're taking a calculated bet on Chris and his talents as a developer and leader.
Besides, I'd be happy to see the man succeed in making the game he always wanted.
