Yes, it's a combination. Overall they are not doing bad at all - they will probably raise at least 100.000p, $160.000 - that is really good for a team that is 100% unknowns. They were almost continuously in the hot 7 list on kicktraq after the first few days. It also makes sense to ask as much as they do, I think, no chance to do a satifying sandbox RPG, if you can't put a certain amount of manpower into building the content, no matter how good your tools are. But, in hindsight, it would have taken a near perfect KS campaign to reach that goal, and this wasn't:
- no buildup prior to the KS, therefore they did not have the typical starting rush. Look at the very unusual trend curve on kicktraq!
- they did not plan in enough time to babysit the KS - they are working and didn't plan for a holiday I think - so replies and updates were sluggish.
- and most of the info is technical - it's still hard to get a "feel" for the game they want to do
