I love loot (i.e. seeing my character evolving, becoming stronger), and I love to save whenever and wherever I want to (well, outside of fights and cut scenes, that is). So, if they want me to buy this game, they better add this. If not, they lost a sale. Maybe I'm not the target audience for this game.

The backers are the target audience for this game. That's who they made the game for. If other people would like to buy the game after it's been released, great. Means more money for them. But very very few kickstarters are making their games worrying about "how will we make this game accessible to the Joe Bro Console crowd???" (not calling you that, btw.)

The gaming "media" keeps bringing this question up to Avellone and Fargo et al, and their response is always the same. "I'm not trying to make the game accessible to Joe Bro. This game is for our backers."

So yeah, they may have "lost" a sale to you, but they weren't counting on said sale anyway. They have already recouped their money for this game.
