the "DreamWorld" Kickstarter is advertising a product that is not theirs and scamming hundreds of kids out of upwards of $60,000.

We understand Kickstarter cannot curate all content on their platform, and this wouldnt be an issue, except this product had the "Projects we love" tag, meaning Kickstarter endorse this. earlier today Kickstarter we're embarrassed enough to remove their affiliation with the scam, but not embarrassed enough to close the project down. and this of course is because Kickstarter will get a 5% cut of this 60k+

This is not only morally wrong but also against Kickstarter rules.

1) Projects must be honest and clearly presented.
Our community is built on trust and communication. Projects can’t mislead people or misrepresent facts, and creators should be candid about what they plan to accomplish. When a project involves manufacturing and distributing something complex, like a gadget, we require projects to show backers a prototype of what they’re making, and we prohibit the use of misleading imagery.

Firstly the kickstarter trailer is made up entirely of preview videos found on the unreal engine marketplace, therefor false advertising.

Secondly the backers do not get the "pre-alpha" access they were promised until forcing 2 friends 2 back the project and prove it to the "devs". this is the definition of a pyramid scheme. and also being deceptive to people who pledge.

I would like to finish this by saying, Shame on you Kickstarter for throwing hundreds of young people under the bus just so you keep your 5%.
