It isn't my game, but the guy who is making it does go on this site. I think it is really promising. Check it out!

At least there is a demo for it, so you know whether its worth putting money in apart from their good word.

Does it get much more ignorant and misinformed? Seriously, this is the future for indie gaming. If you don't have thousands of dollars to invest into making a game, you can get help from the public to make your dream project a reality. How is any of that a bad thing?

In the real world you work first and then get paid. Some exclusions apply for certain services with well-known, established businesses but that's hardly the case with indie gaming. You want to get your foot into a new field and make a name for yourself but don't have the money to work exclusively on the project? Then do what everybody else does: work a second paying job or take on sponsors. Asking your consumer base for handouts is in poor taste.

This is a bit different (IMO) because he provided a demo and only wants a fairly small amount of money.

Not really a hand out, since in most cases you get the finish product for your money...
