I'm kinda worried they won't have enough to fund it now. What happened to 5,000? They now want 30k and it's only got 11 days left.

$5k-ish is what the buyer paid for the prototype, is my understanding. I guess the cost breakdown goes something like this:

$30,000
- $2,400 (KS fees)
= $27,600

- $5,000 (estimated buyer break-even)
= $22,600

So $22,600 to spread between manufacturing, fulfillment, lawyer fees, hacker fees, possibly the license to the game if there's a rev-share deal or something, and possibly the hourly rates of anyone who worked on the campaign (like the publisher guy, and I think the Nolan Bros are involved in some way?).

That's not a lot of money to go around, I don't think anyone's getting rich off of this.

The fact that they paid $5000 for Socks the Cat Rocks the Hill is a pretty good argument against giving them money.

Yeah, it barely made it. I seen other kickstarters barely make it too. I figured there'd be last minute backers that would save it.

The Kickstarter page now states they should be releasing the unaltered original ROM as well (since the project was funded).

Sounds good, and hopefully most everyone will be happy!

Dammit I wasn't paying attention - but good to know its funded Smile. Can you eventually buy copies if you missed the kickstarter or is he releasing a snes rom or anything? - I don't want a digital version if its ti be played on a pc not a snes :/
