alexThunderSeems legit. Still, I think he could have told this earlier.
Completely agree. Lots of developers don't "get" Kickstarter. They aren't sure if us backers are "pre-order forum denizens" or "mini publishers". They don't want to "dump boring technical details on us" for some reason... and in reply, a dozen backers will post comments stating that they, too, are programmers, and would like all the low-level details that the developer is willing to provide!
I tossed him a few dollars... I hope he keeps us in the loop, technically. It looks like it might make it now (they need another $50K in four days, not remotely unheard-of on Kickstarter), and I'd be interested in some updates regarding the pitfalls of porting a complex and stylized GUI from Unity3D v3.5 to v4.0... then I can pass on pointers and tips to other
developers interested in porting to Linux!
