That's a bit unfair. Software development is about iteration, in the same way as every creative endeavour, such as painting or novel writing, are. Noone gets everything perfect from the get go. If we try to constrain crowd funding projects to do exactly what they say on the tin, then the result will be crap, if anything actually gets released at all. The fact that they listened to their backers and changed so many things is a good, not a bad thing. And none of these projects proceed in a straight line from start to finish, we all make mistakes and have to fix them, it's the nature of the business and part of the reason it's so exciting.

P.S. A week hardly seems unreasonable for refunds, probably it needs to go through Indiegogo and it's often harder to unwind a transaction, since they probably don't have an automated pipeline for that.
