I would say $2.5 could be a reasonable goal right now. So far, I have contributed a bit on Paypal and on Kickstarter, but can't really afford any of the really good options, like becoming an in-game NPC.
I was thinking of this myself. I think it's related with the tablet version. Brian says they do not consider to port it to tablets at the moment. But Tim Schafer's game will also be developed for tablets. I think this creates the difference. Also there's the factor that Tim Schafer was the first to put his project to Kickstarter. Initial excitement seems to diminished somewhat. Al Lowe's Larry remake also supports this theory, it raises money but not the same rate as the Double Fine adventure. And finally there's the last moment factor, which will accelerate the increase rate of the money. But I don't think Brian reach the 3 million $ level.
