The terrifying thing about Kickstarter is that, unless you meet the target, you get none of the money. Even if you're £1 off. Obviously backers get refunded, but the company doesn't see a dime. It would be such a kick in the stomach if that happens, despite Playtonic (thankfully) making the game regardless.
I'm praying the project gets the publicity it needs and people smash the target off the scale. I have enough enthusiasm to share with at least a few hundred people, but the bank balance of a pauper.
