I made a pledge a few days ago. I love the idea, and I hope it succeeds. These guys have no idea how to run a kickstarter, though (they can't really be blamed for that), and I'm worried that it won't be funded.
Me too. It really is a great idea and the free resources that would come from it would be of great value to anyone interested in making games. But as you said the lack of buzz around it seems almost destined to make it fail. It's a shame really. Hopefully they'll try again in the future with a better approach if it doesn't get funded this time 'round.
