Not something I have a vested interest in I just think it looks really interesting. They really seem to know their stuff and I think it'll be amazing looking as well.

I don't trust kickstarter at all, seen so many scams run through it

Really? I've never had an issue with them, other than the people doing "The Crater" seem to be incompetent.

I've seen stuff where a person says they want money for their project and then proceed to do it on the cheap and pocket the difference.

Saying that its a bit investment system so if you have the money and want to take the risk so be it but personally i just don't trust the place.

Fair enough. These guys seems pretty good though. They've already sent out some of the pictures they took in Japan and they're amazing.

I have the same problem... It just seems like one thing after another. The Time of Eve kickstarter worked wonderfully, a slight delay but at least there are constant updates.

All in all I don't have a problem using Kickstarter but it has to be for something I really want.

I'd rather have a delay and be updated about it and get a better product because of it than have a rush job but the worst of both is unexplained delays.

Sorry the first sentence was in regards to The Crater - I didn't make that very clear (unless I've misinterpreted your response - more than likely). To me it seems like one thing after another and I'm wondering if will ever get published. (I do believe it's not a scam - just poorly executed.)

Other than that I've only had positive experiences.

I meant that if there's delays to a product, I'd rather have them, them be explained, and get a better product at the end of it, than have no delays and a rush job. The worst case scenario is obviously lots of delays, no explanation and a bad product.

Ah I see, I agree; if the quality is better then all the better but if it's due to poor planning and incompetence then they only thing they are good for is to spread bad news Laughing

I know some of the people behind the project and they're serious and reliable. Plus Cédric Littardi is a solid businessman who wouldn't risk his reputation in a scam.
