I am laughing out loud at a friend who was so enthusiastic about a Kickstarter (she bragged that she had backed more money than me), but is now complaining about how the project turned out differently than what she anticipated.
_ALWAYS UNDERSTAND_ that when you support a crowd funding project, you are basically surrendering your money to the project creator on pure faith. They’ll maintain feedback with their backers, yes, but ultimately they have the final say in how the finished item comes out. You do not own the project in any way, you are just a money supporter. And the project might even be cancelled in the future with no obligation to give you a refund.
Even highly successful Kickstarters like Double Fine’s Broken Age have run into hiccups long after their US$3m+ funding drive ended.
There lies one of the biggest caveats of crowd funding, and I’m surprised that so many people still don’t understand its shortcomings.
If you’re so easily disillusioned, then don’t back the Kickstarter. Or maybe, learn to have a little more faith. You haven’t even played/watched the product yet.
