Wow, this game looks awesome...

There are a few games I'd pay for extra just to play right now, *cough* KH3 *cough*. As much as I wanna play this game right now, I can't ever imagine paying $70 for a PC game. $40 seems outrageous for an independent studio game as well! Maybe I'm just use to buying amazing games for $5 nowadays from independent studios. This better be worth it.

It's a little unfair for them to pay $90 on KS, and then the game appears on steam early access for $20
Not really. The whole point behind KS is that investors are paying to help make sure that a thing gets made. They're not buying a finished product.

And if you're willing to put in a little effort with Wineskin or CrossOver, a lot of GOG's other Windows RTS games work very well on OS X through WINE: Imperial Glory, Original War, Praetorians, and Battle Realms are all games that have worked well on my Mac. If you want to kick it a little old school, KKND2: Krossfire, Earth 2140, and Dark Reign work in the latest versions of WINE as well (for Earth 2140, use DOSBox/Boxer as the Windows version has apparently poorly coded AI). If you're up for a little turn-based action, nothing can beat Alpha Centauri/Alien Crossfire, for which GOG has also provided a modern OS X port.
Excellent game
