My example was crap, I’ll give you that, It’s a different scenario but all I could think of at the spur of the monent. Here are some quotes from the Kickstarter.
“With your support, we hope not only to bring The Wonderful 101 to a wider audience on a variety of platforms, but also to add some content that will enhance the experience even more!” and “While our base goal is to release the game on the Nintendo Switch, with your help, we can do even more.” (Sounds as though they need money to make it a reality)
“But although it’s still hard for us to believe, thanks to all of your help, The Wonderful 101 have finally gotten a chance at revival,” (Sounds as though because the goal was reached, it will be released, when it fact it would’ve been regardless)
They could’ve made an announcement with a release date and opened up preorders, not use deception to make people think it wouldn’t be possible any other way. What they did was dishonest.
