And I was the guy who thought one night, "American McGee could totally twist the Wizard of Oz story," then woke up to hear they announced it.

I was definitely interested in this game; I liked that it was going to have turn-based combat and concept sounded very interesting. However, a big problem with this Kickstarter project (well, most Kickstarters really) was that it was so early in development it is very difficult to envision what the final product will look and play like. All we had to go on was a bit of concept art and the developer's reputation.... It's the eternal dilemma: indie developer needs funds to make a game, but since they don't have the funds yet, they can't develop the game enough to make the gamers want to fund it. I think people are getting a bit more leery of Kickstarter, with the recent issues including Double Fine's setbacks as well as a few lesser known Kickstarted games recently being released in very buggy states... Hopefully once some of the bigger projects like Shadowrun Returns and Wasteland 2 are released, they will restore confidence in crowd-funding of video games.

I do hope they try again with the Oz game, with a more detailed outline for how the game will play... And obviously not complicate it by trying to tack on a completely separate project.
