The Kickstarter campaigns have a boost on the pledges at the beginning and end so it's still possible that they succeed.

They have much more to show than concept art and yet they struggle so much to achieve that low level of pledges. I don't know why but I suspect that people think it will be generic and uninteresting RPG. I think that atleast looking at the environments it has nice design. This is also one of the most impressive games made in Unity game engine.

I don't know if you are aware that [URL='http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hiddenpath/defense-grid-2']Defense Grid 2[/URL] is on Kickstarter and if developers reach $750 000
there will be Linux and Mac versions. Hidden Path set quite a steep financial requirement and it seems unlikely to get that amount of pledges.
