Wow, most kickstarters just hang onto the money and fade away when they realize they can’t produce what they planned to.
I'm curious if they are just hanging onto it or if they're investing those $2 million and making bank.
Those were pledges, there never was any money. Kickstarter does not pay out to creators or even charge the backers unless or until a project is successfully funded, and this one was canceled before it was scheduled to end on Dec. 30th. They'll have no problem raising the money again later, though, 'cause those fighting game tourney folks are cuckoo for niche controllers. Although the thing looked so much like a GameCube controller, I'd be surprised if they don't run into another big, red roadblock named NINTENDO if/when they ever do make it as far as production.
