I was talking about LT2, and procedurally drawing a universe doesn't negate a multiplayer enviroment.

I added the main site to my list of random sites to check up on now and again.

What happens to a kickstarter if they don't deliver?

That's a pretty fair question, I know that when you pledge, it isn't final until the full amount has been reached, which obviously this has.

My guess is there is some kind of contractual/legal binding between the author and the pledge, he would be liable for all funds I would imagine?

There is no contractual binding, kickstarter is a venue for people/groups of people to pitch their ideas in an effort to get people to give them money to make it happen. With games, usually an incentive to pledge is that a copy of the game will be given to them upon completion, but if the company fails to deliver then there is no legal recourse to regain your money. It is an investment of sorts in the end.

I do believe that this kickstarter will not fall through; however, there have been several that did (such as code hero, though it looks like that one is attempting to give some kind of final product after months of no information) and the money was just gone.
