You don't know what you are talking about. I was there I have takled to the devs personally and boy are you wrong. (unfortunately) the KS campain "success" basically means nothing, the releasing (not so successfull if you recall) of the game, means nothing > Whether the game, sales enough, to keep company afloat, to generate enoug money so that it prospers, THAT is what determines what is success.
First of all, no need to get aggressive... I don't think I was saying anything outrageous.
Secondly, I am sure you're right. A succesful Kickstarter does not mean they made huge (if any) profits on the game. But this is no way to reward your Kickstarter backers, who enabled the first 'spark' to let you make the game. Nowhere did I see a huge disclaimer like "we're only gonna send you these backer rewards if the game becomes a sufficiently large financial success". They promised rewards in return for a backing on Kickstarter, so they should deliver them. Otherwise don't make promises...
Sure, you know you're taking a risk when you're backing a Kickstarter, but that shouldn't be an excuse for them not to deliver on their promises. You know it sometimes happens, but I hope that this won't be their defense if we don't get anything at all in the end.
Also, I hope for their sake that they haven't put their hopes on crowdsourcing to help fund any future projects, if that's the way they handle promises to their backers.
Anyway... what are you trying to say by claiming the game wasn't a huge success? It sounds like you are defending that we might not see the rewards come our way, like ever. That is not the official position of Stainless, as of yet. Well we haven't heard from them in a while, which isn't much better, but if and when they talk about it, we usually here that eventually we will get the rewards.
