You are correct, astute reader! That amount of money would barely be enough to make a Flappy Bird clone, let alone a full MMO. However, this Kickstarter campaign is not about funding the full development of OrbusVR, it's about the community pitching in to give it an extra boost. We have private funding (out of my own pocket, basically) that has already gotten us this far and will make sure the game gets made.
The goal we chose for this Kickstarter campaign represents an amount we think will make a materially positive impact on the game's development, but is still achievable for our growing community of VR enthusiasts. Every dollar you pledge is going directly to make the game even better.
