    No, somebody's been on Kickstarter for longer than a day.

    I don't know why, but I can't stop watching this.

    I'm hoping they get to their goal before I go to bed tonight. Pretty sure they will.
    127K to go.

    If Kickstarter is such a terrible gamble, why are you still there?

    Certainly none of the intelligent members here at TCF would be so frivolous as to waste their valuable time at such a worthless web site.

    I'm sure you're right. There will never be enough suckers (nearly 32,000) to reach the $2 million mark.

    What's that you say? $2 million at 5:54 pm PDT on Day One? Impossible! Just a rumor, I'm sure.

    WTF are you taking about, Wil? I'm giving my opinion as to why this particular kickstarter is risky IMO. Where did I ever say it wouldn't get backed? It was a no-brainer considering the popularity of VM. And based on how some RPGs get thousands and thousands in a day, I'm not surprised by this outcome in the least. It'll probably hit $3MM in another day.

    And I've backed 16 other kickstarters (see, I'm the one on KS longer than a day!!!) and have a perfect hit rate so far. Of the projects funded, two have shipped and I've been pleased with the results. Some offer amazing ROI and others are pretty ludicrous. I love the idea and hope it thrives. Just didn't think this one was worth my cash with so many potential pitfalls. But hey, continue your snark if it pleases you.

    We'll have to keep checking to see if they add new rewards in order to get to $3 million or $4 million.

    But what if ...? Or what if ...?

    Nothing wrong with being a naysayer, bless your heart, have at it.

    No such thing as a sure thing. Except this, from hour one. If they want to let the contributions run, this movie could even wind up with a real budget.
