They already said yesterday that nothing brought in after the campaign will be added to sgs. I think that the reason they ended it before GenCon was so that late pledges could be secured and they wouldn't have to pay ks their precentage. I understand the logic, just don't think they generated the pre-campaign hype to make the ks as big as it could have been. Word of mouth is great and all, but who even reads those spam type fb messages anymore?
I agree. Crypto was expecting the campaign to break $1 million, mostly on the IP. At Gen Con they could demo the game, point to the successful KS that just ended, and suggest people jump in during the pledge manager. Crypto avoids KS fees and doesn't have to reward backers with any more stretch goals.
