Only a few people succeed and only you hear about them but can you imagine how many other people looked at that and thought that they can do it too and it never worked out for them (I don't want to put you in that sentence. You put yourself).

Mate, we're just giving advice... The last thing we want is to break your dream... You either listen to our advice or not... All the things we were talking were only targeted to your way of appreciating small donors, not towards your game...
And that's absolutely not the way of doing things... You went totally from "I still hold on my opinion" to "I will end the campaign if you want to"... You act so angry and that's not the way to go with things... Leave the campaign and see what happens... And you'll see the results... I sincerely hope you don't end up with $0, but that's what's gonna happen if you don't appreciate the small things...
Advice by starting an argument by saying how my pledge is ****, guess what? CAMPAIGN ENDING. Since apparently I can't do pledges correctly, and it doesn't settle in your opinion, I guess I can't do it.

And what? Even if I donate $50 now, you're still gonna look at them as $1 because they are far far away from $1500... and probably refund them because "I am not a money maker"... I donated $1 because I wanted to be the person to start the contribution, so other people get started as well... What was wrong with me donating $1 and saying that you could've at least put a credit somewhere for the time being, because that's the only support you have at the moment? It's just a way of thinking, man...
YOU CANT DONATE ANYMORE, QUIT TRYING TO DONATE TO MAKE A POINT. ANYWAY, IF YOU LOOK, THE CAMPAIGN NO LONGER EXISTS. YOU DONATED $1 BECAUSE YOU WANTED TO TRY AND PROVE THAT $1 DONATORS SHOULD BE APPRECIATED PUBLICLY. YOU HAVE BEEN REFUNDED, AND YOUR $1 WILL RETURN WITHIN A WEEK.

My precious $1 is already back, so don't worry about it... Just get some sleep and rethink your plans... Still, I hope you haven't given up on Terrofall or Psycho Night... Money helps, but it's not required in order to make a great project...
EDIT: I didn't ban you because of your opinion, did I? I respect your opinion, even if I don't agree with it... And why should I like your opinion? You don't like mine, do you?
Seriously if you give up and pull your campaign because 5 people you've never met don't agree with you then how will you push through and not give up when you hit a real problem in development (and we all do), if you believe in your project and your skills then forget what everyone else says and carry on.
I happen to agree with all the comments made, you need to appreciate anyone who supports you, $1 is a lot to some people (you included I'm sure). But again, why should you care what I think if you believe in yourself?
You should continue, but try learn the things you don't know, coding to the level you need is not too hard, it just takes effort, time and commitment, if you are serious about game making you need those skills.
Some of us have been here before and had this conversation before, it always ends the same way. Try not to over reach yourself, start small, a fun, original game you can make entirely yourself without money, get your name out there, gain a following, then think big when you have the skills to back it up, remember you don't have an original idea here, its been done before so you need to convince people you can do it better
You can easily make your assets in SketchUp. And the more you make, the more experience and skill you get.
But, wait... 1500$ for a single game? WTF Isn't that too much? And hosting a game server? You can do that by yourself by opening some ports (or disabling the firewall and enabling the DMZ (say welcome to hackers xD)).
I managed to work on 3DRadSpace, WITHOUT investing any money. Also, I hate using online assets, using other peoples' stuff...
