A quick search and we’ll put that theory to rest. First is this post over at RPG.Net
So we have a claim. The reason for the additional funding is to make a black and white product, available in color. In my mind the problem here and why others are showing concern is legit. If you’re an associate of End Transmission Games, or you’re a company planning a future crowdsource, consider it food for thought:
20K? Scroll back up and let's look at that RPG.net post again.
"It funded, but we landed well, well short of the full color stretch goal. After readjusting our expectations (read: Devon and Mikaela decided to put more of their own money into the game) we realized if we just got $3,500 more we'd have the full color book we've wanted this whole time."
In what did you pump more money in exactly? And why? Especially since it seems that the money you (allegedly) put in, didn't get you the result of color books. Call me crazy but I don't put half of my money on something... then walk around outside, in the hopes that I can convince a passerby to come into the store with me, to pay for the other half. I pay money and I get something. What did you pay for? If I was a backer I would certainly ask this.
End Transmission Games might just be socially inept. It is not impossible that everything is and will be on the Up and Up. But the more I look at this the more doubt is beginning to creep in.
The Indiegogo hasn't funded a red cent, so ETG might already have an answer, forget the vanity of color and produce the game that you promised and received funding for. That is my (not that you asked) advice. There is always next time for those that produce.
This post is titled with a question: Why only one crowdfunding cookie jar, when two (and four months apart) might do?
We don't know the answer yet, but I suspect we will-
