Understanding the Unsung Story Kickstarter

Unsung Story has had a pretty rough Kickstarter and are currently projected to be shy of their Kickstarter goal by by roughly $50,000. Twinfinite has taken to analyze the many updates that the game has had to clarify some of the daunting questions the project has had.

Why is it failing?

Poor presentation.
Low awareness.

You can't simply post of kickstarter page and expect people to find it. You have to WORK at making people aware of it. Throughout the ENTIRE run.

The last 48 hours or so should be an advertising blitz--doing interviews with big youtube personalities, delivering staggered batches of content like artwork or something as "news" to sites like N4G, etc.

No one is going to donate to a kickstarter that's already "failed" before the drive is even over.

This is a great example of how NOT to run a potentially massive KS campaign.

"The game will also have roughly 25 missions, which is smaller than many of the other Final Fantasy Tactics games and there are no side quests or random battles. There are plans to expand this out post release."

Lol, I'm glad I didn't donate. And really, no main characters? Seems pretty boring to me since one of the main focus on FFT was to read (and play!) Ramza's recently discovered journey and everyone involved. Just mentioned FFT because people keep comparing them, but they have nothing to do with each other.

I mean, could be fun to play sometimes as Wiegraf, sometimes as Ramza, or even have a chance to be Marquis Elmdor, but because they are cool characters in a cool concept and we all know that, but how can this game be appealing if they don't show what kind of characters expect us?
