    benrett got a reaction from Mr_Homn in What if we won't make it?   
    One thing some new people to Kickstarter do not realise is that there is often a big surge in funding during the last couple of days. Regular KS funders often use the "Remind me" button when browsing projects that take their interest rather than contributing off the bat. This often is so they don't over commit themselves or is used when the project is only of a casual interest rather than a must-fund. That Remind me button automatically sends out a email notification and reminder to the person 48 hours before the funding wraps. So there will be a significant last day surge. That period is also when some of the hardcore fans up their pledges to silly amounts just to make sure the project succeeds.
     
    If the funding does fall through then the guys could create a new Kickstarter project at a later date with a lesser financial goal and source the remainder of the funding from a publisher? Or they could just go to a publisher for the whole fund? I imagine the reason why they would prefer this Kickstarter campaign to succeed is that they would guarantee development of the new game and be able to keep all royalities and rights to any new intellectual property they create. Unlike Space Quest where the IP was owned by the publisher Sierra Online who both funded development and published the games.
