Shadowrun Returns $1M Milestone

The Kickstarter Page for Shadowrun Returns celebrates the $1,000,000 in pledges Harebrained Schemes' upcoming Shadowrun revival has attracted. This results in this trailer explaining how these funds will be used to add more elements to the game, and outlining their next goal, saying if they reach the $1.5 million mark they will construct a "backer's only exclusive mission" as a "little reward." The clip concludes saying they have "some pretty twisted ideas" of what to do if they receive even more funding (as if "more elements" wasn't twisted enough). Interestingly, some of the comments express unhappiness at the prospect of exclusive content for backers.

If they don't make games that sell well then their are back to 0 as soon as even a single kickstarter venture fails. After all these are not 400+ employee studios that have 5 projects in development. The have to focus their entire studio on 1 project, if it fails they are goners unless they are lucky with their next kickstarter project. And that is imo a very dangerous gamble.

Well, I guess that is indeed a moot point if they only want to make 1 game. But I don't know about you guys, but I want UNIQUE and NEW games, and not retreading of old IP's for eternity. So maybe they only plan to make that 1 game, but my hope is that some of these studios make proper new games based on their success here with kickstarter. Because in the end, I want more (good) games!
Retreading of old IPs? WTF are you talking about? This game is based on a vastly underused IP, and will be very different from the couple of other console games that came out like 15 years ago. If this is how we get good games made that publishers won't touch, then I'm fine with it. Screw the publishers for ignoring this IP for so long.

With something like an extra mission for a game like this, I really don't see the problem. You want the mission? Back the game. If you don't care enough about the game to back it, then buy the game on its own merits when it comes out, or not.

I still personally dislike the whole kickstarter concept, although if it works for companies, that's fine. But I prefer to actually have a product I'm paying for, rather than paying for something theoretical.
When the alternative is that a game never gets made, then I don't see what you could possibly have to complain about. We've waited forever for the traditional game publishing industry to create this game. It hasn't happened. So we fund its creation ourselves. If you don't care about this game, then I can understand you not funding it, but I can't understand what you have against the Kickstarter concept. How else do you get something like this done?
