Hardcore modes gave it actually a boost in pledges. Some minutes after announcing there was a third 10.000 $ pledge.
Hmm. Who has the money to do that? It remains to be seen if those actually get paid.

From what I recall, that was reserved for a second playthrough of the game; in this case, it's just a way to further pound your party into goo on the first run.

Give us more content, damnit, not a bunch of add-on party favors like companions and difficulty settings. Give me a lineup of abilities and spells to rival D&D's. Give me dungeons galore. Give me a richer backstory to the world, and ways to explore this lore.

All these updates just sound so shallow to me…too technical, not enough development of the main theme.
The people donating to the startup are more likely to be hard-core gamers, so they're part of the group being targeted by these modes. But seriously, why wouldn't you appreciate the ability to tune the game to your playing preferences? It also adds to the enjoyment of replay by adding back challenge where it has been removed due to familiarity with the game. I'd say it's a winner.
