While I have no particular interest in Tortured Hearts; I've played the mods in NWN and they were okay but not worth money (in my opinion), I thought that the two dudes did as well as they could without the necessary talent to actually build a game. I just didn't see enough work (that could actually be used and not assets from other games), to prove to me that these guys have what it takes. I'd need something more solid than, "Look what I could do in NWN or NWN2's mod kits". The only other stuff I saw was conceptual.
I'd compare it to someone who painted a room in your house and decorated it, to ask you for money to build a whole house from scratch. Okay, show me your concrete, brick laying, drywall, etc, skills first.
My suggestion? Do something small with your team to prove your skills. Don't use anything that you don't own or can't buy to make it. A 5-10 hour proof of concept game. Even if you do that, I really can't see a $300,000 kickstarter, but who knows?
