PTTG, I thought your comment was fairly well balanced. Though I disagree with encouraging him. If you notice the dates on the publicly available chapters, he's been working on this story since at least 2007. I mean in five years, if he hasn't shown any real improvement, he's either to arrogantly blind to realize he needs improvement or he might very well be incapable.
The thing that bugs me with that kick starter, isn't the badly figured out award tiers that undermine his own goal, or the grievous and frequent grammar/spelling errors, it's his arrogance, and ignorance.
Seriously, the guy is so well assured that his novel is stupefying, that'll be the next Harry Potter, and no matter your opinion on Harry Potter, I think we can all agree that Harry Potter is going to be a novel series that is going to be sticking around for a while.
And from what's publicly available, he doesn't really have anything special at all, and overall a poor command of language.
Also OP can you move this thread to general discussion? This thread seem to have move beyond just bad video games, but about kickstarter blacksheep in general.
