    The only potential downside of this for Double Fine that I can see is that if it carries on like this, about 80-90% of the people who would have wanted to buy the new game will already be getting it as the reward for their funding. There's not going to be much in the way of revenues.
    Eh? These are basically pre-orders... I don't really get your point. Rather than seeking loans / investors to pay for development, then repay loans through revenue or see profits going back to investors, they've just cut out the middle men. I think it's amazing.

    Anyway, I've pumped in $250. I've been a massive fan of Schafer and Gilbert my whole game-playing life.
