I appreciate the posts and hearing your thoughts.
I will admit that we perhaps overestimated the excitement of Mega Man Fans. We expected to see the same level of support as Deluxe and Mega Man Board Game. There's a certain art to pacing your stretch goals so you can announce one every 2-3 days. Some of this might have to do with US Elections falling in the middle of the campaign, and some may just have to do with reasons you mentioned, but I don't think backlash from the Board Game is as strong as some think.
I do want to correct you on one thing though–we didn't say that the only way to get Stretch Goals was to back now. We do have plans we're discussing to release this content later–but that mostly falls on Jasco.
I didn't back this because i backed your awesome Deluxe version and this version of Mega Man doesn't add anything new to the great game of pixel tactics. I think those that have the deluxe feel like why do I need even more then I already have really wished this version would of introduced something new to the pixel tactics system some how. I just simply don't need more faction packs. Look forward to all things level 99 games though every game you guys have come out with are amazing brain burners.
