re-submit for kickstarter again.

The sheer number of websites and forums that will advertise the near miss this time will absolutely generate more cash next time around, i wouldnt be shocked if it got 75,000 plus next time around.

Perhaps they changed their minds?
I would have bid on my own project when it got to the last $100 and the deadline was so close!

If they did that for one project then everyone else would want the same treatment and would most likely sue for damages if they didn't.

No. If they miss their target like they did, even if by $28, the company gets NO FUNDING

The company gets absolutely nothing at all from the people who pledged money if they fall short of their target. The people who want to fund a project on Kickstarter are only able to fund if people pledge enough money,

Who exactly is going to be sued? All he's suggesting is that the developer- who have now lost their funding- contribute the $28 they needed themselves. Seems the most logical course of action.

Hahahahahaa YEAH GUYS LISTEN NEXT TIME ALRYTE JUS PAY ATENSHUN :-O

Of course they could have done that. If they're ambitious enough to make video games they will at least have the foresight to get a mate to sneak a few dollar in. Or, as someone else said, if they're really smart don't bother and get some free publicity. Fair play to them.

Really glad Sir go funded, seems a very interesting game, plus Tweedpunk could become the greatest genre ever!

I distrust patriotism; the reasonable man can find little in these days that is worth dying for. But dying against - there's enough iniquity in Europe to carry the most urbane or decadent into battle.

lol, talk about bad luck. I'm picturing it as someone's PC froze in the process of sending over $50 which would have reached the target.
