If you're really unlucky, they'll take the money you pledged and turn it into billions of dollars by selling out to Facebook, and you won't see a cent.

Or best of all they pocket every cent and give us a half a** excuse about "spending issues"

You pledge to the tier you want, like for example, there's a game where you can spend $15 and that gets you a Steam key. Then $40 also has beta access, and $60 has alpha access. Then you just wait until the time is up on the Kickstarter, only if the funding is met will anyone be charged. If it's a penny short then nobody gets charged and the project isn't funded. Then whenever they post updates, you get e-mails sent with the progress, and when they're ready to ship out physical goods depending on reward tiers, they'll send a survey where you provide them with shipping info. Then when game keys are ready, they'll send an e-mail, usually it'll show up on your Humble Store account to be redeemed. Otherwise, they'll send you somewhere to get dibs on your Steam key or DRM free download.
