And he refused to admit that the problem wasn't Kickstarter fatigue, the problem was that the other big names were saying "Hey, do you guys remember these awesome games we made? We're going to make one JUST LIKE IT!" whereas he was saying "Hey, do you guys remember those awesome games I made? I'm going to make a weird FPS/MOBA hybrid now!"

It's incredible that they can't see what the problem is there.

In Chris's defense, he needed another $5m to finish Kings and Castles, and knew that wasn't going to happen on KS. With his company about to go under, he made a desperate attempt at getting funding for something he thought he could make cheaply. It wasn't necessarily what he most wanted to make, and he knew it's not what people were looking for from him. A drowning man will grab onto anything floating nearby.

Fine, but then admit "Yeah, the game I proposed didn't resonate with gamers."

As opposed to the "It's crazy that everyone is getting hella bank, and I don't get anything!" crying that he kept doing for weeks on end.
