Gamasutra it's not a good thing if they come up short on this.
"We spent all the last dough that we've had, and the last several months working on it. So we're betting the company on it," Taylor told the site.
Taylor says the game is a risk, but it's not the first time he's done it, noting he bet the company on Dungeon Siege and Supreme Commander. He also mentions that with the normalcy of the Kickstarter culture, it's easier to ask people for $15 than to ask a publisher for $1.1 million. We'll update this post with a Kickstarter link when it apparently launches in a couple hours.
Update: Kickstarter is now live.
