The funding succeded at the end, with an almost unbelievable rush in the last hours. There was even a mysterious contributor who pledged $20k.
One of the creators probably just mortgaged their house to complete the funding so they could get the rest of that sweet sweet cash.
That's exactly what I thought and didn't want to say, because it's a very dishonest thing to do in my opinion. Sure, something is better than anything but if they really needed all that cash to fully develop the game and release it on time, now they won't be able to achieve it. At best, backers will get the game with a significant delay past the announced date, which was generous enough in the first place (November 2014)...
