Would it have been a better idea to just choose their own game concept and present it confidently? Possibly. But people still wouldv complained that it wasnt GK. And as jane has said, the point of the voting is to show they plan on making multiple games, this isnt a one-time thing for them, and they want fans to feel involved.
And really, if they had picked their own title and it turned out to be a less popular one, then we'd really be in trouble.

The finish line looks to be about 2000-2400 backers away. We need to average around 70-80 backers per day.
Currently focussing on: Book of unwritten tales
On deck: lone survivor
Recently finished: donna: avenger of blood, machinarium, botanicula, grim fandango, corpse party
