You don’t seem to be aware of the publisher pulling out and filing for bankruptcy, long after the Kickstarter money had been spent. They’ve been hung out to dry, after making decisions based on expected funding that ceased to exist. Kickstarter and the IRS took a massive percentage of the funds, as normal, leaving far less than you may be aware of to start. And within all that, the poor sales of UA, and whatever effery happened during development; I think my POV shows pretty obvious reasons for troubles with pledge awards. There’s more where that came from that hasn’t been publicized.
