Ugh, that's just awful. I wonder how many scams like these are floating around...

I think we all knew these would come around after some of the very successful kickstarts. There will always be someone trying to take advantage.

Probably plenty of these around.

Once you see how much money you can get, everyone wants a piece of it. Sadly, it's not the people who want to use money for good things.

This is a shame but it was always going to happen. Though in the age of information these guys are going to start finding it harder and harder to get away with these scams.

Not to mention if you start pissing the internet off enough then anonymous always swings in eventually, invited or not. It'd be nice to see people like this getting harassed every time they log onto a wifi to check their emails.

Or maybe game developers should make some kind of payment to the audience to prove their commitment. Nothing monetary based but something simpler - like photographic evidence that they're willing to stick their nuts in a bee hive to prove they're not scam artists. It's the only way...
