      True, but the issue with this one was, I'm sure, just not getting the word out enough in the first place (which is entirely my fault)... But, I am a-learnin'

      On that note, however, I'm going to send out the update about closing this Kickstarter and starting to work on the next version.

      P.S.: Thanks for all the comments/ info so far!

      Successful projects have a U-shape in funding profile, where the launch gets covered by gaming news, then a middle slump where the newbies get discouraged and experienced backers tell them to keep spreading the news, and a big end in the last few days where procrastinators jump in after seeing the project is funded/close-to-funded (the kickstarter 48-hour reminder service encourages this late rush) and dedicated backers start increasing their tiers to make sure the project happens (or to make a favorite stretch goal)

      Sometimes if a project already is way over the target goal near the end, dedicated backers won't feel compelled to raise pledges much, so the end spike is not nearly as impressive as the beginning one with the initial publicity

      but if it's a nail-biter where the project needs a big spike at the end, often backers will come through

      Sounds like a plan. I want to see this next launch pulled together really well, and make the kicktraq hotlist at the beginning. A good start is critical -- recovering from a slow start rarely happens, and I've *never* heard it happening for a project over $100k.

      Ian,

      Pledges will not roll over, since it will be an entirely new Kickstarter. Since we'll be taking a very critical look at the campaign - hopefully with lots of input from all of you - there's a really good chance that the pledge levels will change.

      Especially since I'm going to try to drop the project target as much as I can. A lot of the changes are going to be driven by backer experience and suggestions, but my guess is that it'll include stuff along the lines of: lowering the scope (only 20 alien races?); not supporting as many form factors, and adding them in post-release; and less animation, perhaps, among other things. Like I said, though, I'm going to ask the backers for feedback about what appeals to them (and put off the stuff that nobody cares about).

      So, will our pledges to this kickstarter roll over to the new one, or will we have to repledge?

      We'll need sites like kotaku, joystiq, RPS to cover the launch next time...
