BRATHWAITE & HALL PULL THE PLUG ON 'OLD-SCHOOL RPG' KICKSTARTER

Lolwut? Basically they weren't happy with how much they've raised, and even though they *might* have made their goal, they decided it wasn't enough. So, uh, make your goal higher?

Honestly, I think this is a good decision on their part. Bad execution tho'. But they were up against too much similar competition right now to be successful. Had they done this 3 months back, or (potentially) 4-5 months from now, they likely would have had a lot less competition, and a much greater chance of exceeding their target.

Still, that's the sort of decision they should have come to before they started, so it's a bit sleezy to back out now. But no one is out any money, so I guess in the end it's not that bad. If they re-list down the line, and people don't want to fund them because of this experience, they'll get their just desserts.

If my employer agreed to increase my salary by an order of magnitude, I'd consider moving to California. More if it was southern CA or even worse, "The Valley".

Move to California. Perfect weather all year around. On second thought, don't do it. We have too many people already.

Too many modern games taking up too much space. Really? A big Ass Creed symbol? geez.

In his defense he also has a massive Bubblun (the green dinosaur from bubble bobble) on there

Is there such a thing as Kickstarter etiquette? I tend to look favorably (or at least give a second glance) on KS that have previously funded other KS (and I don't mean in the last 5 minutes, since their own KS started). I also tend to expect them to stick it out until the end, no matter how bad (preferably with updates and how the deficit can be made up).

It would absolutely make me think twice (thrice?) about pledging to anything they ever do in the future. What if they meet their goal, but then arbitrarily decide it wasn't good enough, like they had a certain amount in mind but didn't want to make that their target and were relying on coaxing it out of people with stretch goals... They definitely lost a lot of respect and credibility in my eyes, pulling out halfway through the campaign. Not that they had much of either before, IMO.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.
