I really wonder if they will need investment to get them over the line. They lost like 27% of their campaign funds on imasD which I don't know if they salvaged anything out of.
You keep repeating that figure here and in the Pyra forums but it's way off. You are adding the KS funds to the total you see on IGG. But the IGG total includes the KS funds
, so you're counting the KS funds twice. Hover your cursor over the little question mark on the IGG page.
It's not your fault because this is a little trick IGG has been using to make them seem more successful than KS.
But because of that, your 28% figure is wrong, they actually lost at least 42%
to ImasD!!! I say "at least" because that funding total on IGG is in USD and the amount you quoted from SmachZ doesn't specify but is most likely in Euros. If I just do a quick n' dirty google conversion, that turns 280k to $336,084 or 51%!
Add to that- remember KS and IGG take their fee off the top, which is around 10%. And I would not be surprised to learn that the lead guy has been living off the funding, perhaps the other team members too. So yeah, I'm positive these guys are running low on funds.
I'm also glad you caught the little tidbit that both companies are in litigation now. If that's true, it will get expensive real quick. These backers are fucked.
