I'm still not sure why this game is supposed to be good. It's a second big RPG being worked on by a developer that's made 1 decent game, 1 bad game, and 1 failed and cancelled game in 10 years.

It's a bit of a leap of faith - more of a hope that it's good than any kind of "oh yeah, torment is going to kick butt!" The decent game they made was actually an rpg - none of their other titles have been. Moreover, the people involved have actually made great games, and there are people on this project who worked on the first torment.

It also helps a lot that the design of torment and wasteland 2 are very clear and have been successful designs in the past. Sequels are harder to do badly, especially if you follow the formula and don't try and change genre mid-series (*cough* ME *cough*).

So all in all, leap of faith, yes, but not blind misplaced optimism.

Yes.

Besides, if they really botch it, nobody is going to fund their future Kickstarters. It's literally the place where people vote with their wallet. There's no sugar-daddy publisher to sweep in and let them churn out another crap title if the first one bombs.
