The problem I see isn't the flops but the easy way to steal money or at the very least pay yourself money that you wouldn't have gotten otherwise.

My examples to better understand what I mean:
1. Project seeks funding on kickstarter. Shows cool video of supposed ingame graphics. Asks for x dollars. Gets 3 times that. Project never sees light of day. Supposed developers explain the money wasn't enough. In the mean time they lived of off that money for free. There are no checks and balances.

2. Project gets funded. Developers open a forum and then disappear.

Got tired of typing on my phone do my examples don't seem so good anymore…
