too polished video was hurting them. I think there's a learning curve about how to make a compelling Kickstarter video; it isn't all about making the shiny.
It may not be obvious to you, there are medical conditions that cause people to fail to recognize what people say in their body language, but it is obvious to some.
Maybe this sort of criticism is a reason not to use promotional videos for a Kickstarter project, and instead just rely on still photos and compelling text. Of course, if you're going to try to compel with text, you'd better write well.
I may have missed it but I don't recall anybody mentioning M.O.R.E. - old school turn-based 4X space strategy game.
The developers are from my country Poland and they are commited to creating a Linux and Mac versions although making it's realease at the same time as Windows is set for a stretch goal of $80k. If they won't get to this stretch goal they will release it 3 months after the Windows version.
The video for this campaign is of a great quality and the game looks like a dream come true for fans of the genre. They already have $53k which is $3k more than the initial goal.
But don't let anyone stop you from throwing your money away. I hear Bernie Madoff was a great investment opportunity as well.
