Scratch me wanting a GK community playthrough, then. I didn't know there'd been one before.
Has there been one for KQ6, though???

Right, because a community playthrough on this forum would get a lot of new people to back Jensen's project. Are you serious? A community playthrough of a Jane Jensen game NOW would still be something fun to do for the Jensen fans. Nothing more.
Having a community playthrough with an ulterior motive is seriously overestimating the impact of a community playthrough.

I thought it was going well? Every time I check, there's a decent amount of new backers with new money coming in.

I consider 600k to be the goal of this Kickstarter. And I'm cautiously optimistic for now.

This is exactly why I'm optimistic about the 600k goal.
There's still a LOT of days to go, and the campaign is gaining clarity with each passing day.
Having an actual SINGLE game to promote will attract a lot of people who were on the fence before. And knowing what the second game would be will have a similar effect for the 50$ tier.
