If you are looking for brutal and honest feedback about your Kickstarter and the videos you have posted, you should check the thread devoted to your game over at RPG Codex. Those people over there want to see you succeed, no matter how it sounds when you read their comments. They are die-hard RPG fanatics. Many of them would help you if you asked or wanted to talk to them directly.
Go here to see what they’re saying about your project:

ProphetSword is right – the Codex is the largest community of classic CRPG fans and I would wager they represent a large segment of your target audience. Take their feedback to heart, even if it’s sometimes hard to hear. I think your Kickstarter will improve as a result.
Also I’d recommend interacting on there and answering questions / responding to concerns people have. This goes a long way to garnering good will and enthusiasm for the project.March 15, 2015 at 10:20 pm #742
Yep, it’s a harsh place but honest and often insightful. I would even recommend registering and participating in the discussion over there if you can make the time. You could get a lot of great feedback there that you won’t find here or on your KS page.
EDIT: Dammit, ninja’d by Alchemist. Good work buddy.

And oh yeah, if you register there, you should know that there are avatar choices available from SSI’s Dragonlance and Buck Rogers games. Wear one of those for instant cred 😀March 15, 2015 at 11:52 pm #749
Our President spends time on that site, so we are aware of the discussions, and welcome them. I wouldn’t have gone, let alone stayed, in gaming if I had a thin skin.March 16, 2015 at 1:20 am #752
I’m not going to say that the RPG Codex has all the answers. But, you won’t find a larger fanbase of rabid CRPG fanatics anywhere else. Utilize the resource.
If anyone wants to drop into the “Forgotten Realms Unlimited Adventures” forums (located at http://ua.reonis.com) to give progress updates or try to get some more interest, that’s another place I would suggest. Lots of SSI fans there too. Not nearly as big as the RPG crowd (by a long shot), but every little bit helps out.March 16, 2015 at 3:51 pm #761
Thanks ProphetSword, we know the admins at Forgotten Realms Unlimited Adventures too. 🙂
We 100% recognize the audience at RPGCodex. It’s hard to manage multiple points of communication with the audience which is why we have our own forums, social media, and the KS page. We count on you folks to help share information. RPGCodex, RPGWatch, GameBanshee and other focused communities are all important. So, it really helps when key questions/concerns/ideas get put to us directly.
