I'll do a blog post on that.  It's going to make you angry.  It's all stupid shit. The fact is, I could upload the game to Steam tomorrow (minus translations and voice).  But there is a lot of marketing and PR foundation to lay to actually, you know, make the game successful.  That's the business side of all this. We want to make a successful game that sells well enough to be able to make another and, you know, pay rent and buy food.  Almost everyone on the team worked for way less then they could have made, and some of us worked for nothing.  If you take all that into account, the KS didn't pay for the whole game. It was far from even break-even. We need the game to sell.  That's where this second phase comes in.
