Currently, WL2's backers have spent an average of $58 each, while Double Fine's backers averaged $38. Dunno what it'll be like after 30 days, but... well... I thought it was interesting, anyway.
I noticed that difference as well, but I hadn't followed Double Fine's project that early on so perhaps in the early stages of the DF project a larger percentage of backers had opted for higher tiers as well.
In any event, I do not see the funding of W2 as any sort of "contest" with Double Fine (nor am I implying you do
). I think this is a very promising start in its own right, another 10K pledged since my previous message (541K at this point), so the project seems to be ticking along nicely as we're nearing the end of the first day.
