The team, consisting of essentially freelancers, is spread all around the world and have never met in person. There's a schedule, but it starts slipping early on in production. Investors don't love that.
His goal was a mere $150 and he got over $2000. Beats me why anybody would go to all the trouble of preparing a Kickstarter project for just 150 dollars. In this particular case I agree with Siddhi. He could have found that kind of money just about anywhere.
