This! And I learned that the hard way. I invested quite a bit of money in Stargate Worlds a while back and the Owner/CEO of that company developing went out and spent/stole all the money invested in it. I know a lot of people that lost a lot of money in that investment. Hell, my parents and one of their friends that that gave us the lead on it (pretty sure he lost more than a million) visited the studio and there were a lot of developers working hard to get the game released. Game had a lot of promise.
I think the bastard is currently in Mexico or something like that living it up.
I will never invest in a game that is being developed again and I think this will be a big trend with all this Kickstarter stuff now.
