As much as I've supported Chris on this site, I'll say a few things:

1. It was not Kickstarter fatigue. If that had any effect, it was minuscule.

2. It was not the post Christmas lack of funds. If that had any effect, it was minuscule.

3. Wildman was simply not a compelling pitch. Who knows, as time went on, it got more interesting, and may have turned out to be pretty cool. But as a sales pitch, it did not grab people's interest. And I say that as someone who supported the KS.

4. All the drama destroyed people's confidence in whether you could deliver. To ask for a $1m on KS, you need to show that you are rock solid in your commitment to getting the project done.

I really hope CT pulls GPG out of the flames and keeps making good games. He makes great games and has more in him to make, but this was simply the wrong project.
