Mantic has announced their next project which will probably be a kickstarter that has not launched yet. Now Mantic and I do not have what I would call a good relationship. I value things like communication, follow through, and honesty. Not sure for Mantic. If you are not sure what I am talking about you should take a look at my discussion for all the missing stuff that was promised for the dungeon saga kickstarter. Another great place for information is the Dungeon Saga Kickstarter page where plenty of people report very little response from mantic on missing pledges and parts more than 2 months after shipping started.
I have followed these comments closely and have made plenty myself. I will personally say that I have seen Mantic misinform backers about checkable things in the comments section and go silent when corrected. That fact itself speaks to my opinion of their values.
Now if you love the license Mantic's games are not bad and they do often give you a pile of stuff for your money but you are never going to be sure if the part they think is important and worth putting effort into is what you think it is. The main reason you pledged might turn up in a form that requires pages of FAQ before you can even try to use it.
