Ah I remember when the studio developing the new Battlechess ran into cost overruns and needed additional funding to finish the multiplayer component. Their publisher, Interplay, generously allowed them to try to get it on Kickstarter.

I would be very very worried about handing over money to a financially desperate company based on a very vague plan. I'd be more than a little suspicious that this is a desperate temporary measure to get an injection of cash to stave off bankruptcy and that their own expectations are very low with regard to the likelihood that they will actually be spending much of this money on doing much besides paying interest on outstanding loans.

At this point if they were to toss in 1000 shares of Interplay stock for every $20 pledged they'd effectively be doubling the price.
