Grim Dawn - Kickstarter Delayed

That's actually a worry for me wrt Kickstarter. Cutting features to make a release date can certainly be bad but it also sometimes forces the developer to cut things that just didn't turn out to be all that fun or ended up being a lot harder to put in than expected. And what about new ideas? If somebody comes up with a real cool idea but the release date is looming then the idea has to wait for the next game. But what happens if there's no solid release date? The idea can be put in and the game gets better! Sweet! And then there's another idea. And another. And then an even better version of the first idea. And so onů As the good Doctor said, a little patience goes a long way but too much patience goes nowhere.
Most developers know all that even better than me and shouldn't have a problem but what about the others? A proper publisher can threaten to pull funding but what can Kickstart backers do?
I smell a… wumpus!?
