I don't think the game will get funded.. you don't have enough "solid" material that people want to see.

What happens if it doesn't get funded?

I think that project presentation is good.

If Kickstarter will fail then we have to seek another way to fund this project, rewards will be canceled, prepurchase will not be for only $10, release date will not be 2014 and game can have some different features.

But Kickstarter is very interesting experience. We already got few various offers.

Yes the presentation is good, but people want to see something from the game, like a minimum gameplay.

Kickstarter is basically for projects - if people like it, is funded and project will happen. If not, project is discarded.

So working betaversion it can help, but is not needed.

I'm just really worried about the project... 2 days in and not even 1% funding. 

I think we're going to need some form of cheap advertizing to get the attention it needs to succeed.

Currently, we need at least ~$1,700+/day to meet the goal.

Tomorrow it will be up to $1,850, assuming we don't start getting some serious publicity right now.  No matter how good this game is, if people don't know about it, they can't support it.

I have Asked Nintendo to see if they can fund you cause you have potential to make this a great game. ;D

That's a real point actually.
Why re-mow the lawn? Maybe...if you could find them...you could partner up with a game company that already has money, just to get you off the ground.
Basically to pull your own weight without something backing you is a high risk.

The point of indie devs is to avoid having to cave to investor's wishes during game development, and that's what makes them so great.

Having a sponsor line EA for instance, means you get shitloads of money, but have two-month deadlines, paid DLC, and horrible content changes.

It is old tesla and new tesla.
Describe it in a different way then. For example, "redone" or "reconstructed blueprint" of tesla generators etc.

Like I said somewhere in the past, you should get someone to check your English before you publish. Just like the previous "comming soon" title, lots of people made fun of that.

I'm failing english honestly due to the shitloads of semester marks being dependant on silly essays, but surely my english grammatical skills are somewhat better than yours.
If you were to hire me to check for you, my fixes may be wrong to some people because Australian spelling can be different (such as colour, that's a common one that annoys me when doing a cvar search in the console). However grammar should be the same.

Long story short: I'm indirectly saying you should hire an English checker of some sort, but don't hire me.

Therefore, Tremulous 2 might have the future (or might not, since it isn't developed by a corporations, depends on what Global Government will decide), but Unvarnished doesn't.

Sucks to be those Unvarnished guys.

If lots of people made fun then it is good. Fun is good. You should not to be so serious.

Raise Kickstarter goal to $100 000 and I will hire someone, or tell me about someone who will do that for free.

There are many people who would want/have been wanting to see a legit sequel to Tremulous, and here it is...almost. And it's the "almost" that's kills most games.

Instead of constantly whining and stuff, you can also help.
But you said: Don't hire me, so you don't help.

So instead of whining, give at least some proper feedback, or don't say anything at all.
