The funding growth seems really slow for this right now, out of the gate.
Yeah, when your game is selling itself on its music and innovative gameplay... might be a good idea to actually show that to prospective backers!

As I say, really too early to say whether this works or not, but they've not done enough to convince me to back it, and that's not gonna change without some gameplay footage in the next 30 days.
From what I understand the gameplay works like this:
Enemy Rap Phase - Press one of the four face buttons to choose one of his words to focus your next rap on, and choose between four emotions with the analog stick to further customize your lyrics.
Your Rap Phase - Perform your chosen rap in typical rhythm game button-tapping style, while the added option to switch between emotions mid-rap for higher scores.
It doesn't seem that complicated to me, but I can understand the apprehension without any gameplay footage to make a concrete judgement.
