Risks and challenges
There are very few challenges from this Kickstarter that will end up increasing development time, a mistake developers often make that result in delaying the completion of the game. There is no part of this funding that is vital to release, which means almost nothing will stop the delivery of the final game!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
