Yes - I find the accusation that it's a "gash grab" a bit silly. Of course they want cash to finish their game, they are a small self funded company working on a limited budget. You can see the effects of having to rush their games to market on some previous games and they don't wish to make the same mistake. What we should want to see is *more* independent companies going to crowd funding at this stage, since it lowers the cost of making the kind of games we like playing and promotes innovation.

The danger on Kickstarter lies much more in funding games that are just some pipe dream of the designers and never make it to market. That's much less likely with Original Sin, which will likely be released even without KS money - just in a much more restricted form.
