I doubt funding is an issue for DW2. Distant Worlds is a game by one developer with some help from a publisher. Add Erik and it is probably him spending quite some time discussing with the single developer, with some extra help for graphics and publishing. I believe DW (Universe) has done quite well (by Matrix scale), and they expect DW2 to do the same.
I doubt that this process scales very well to a much larger team. I rather have Elliot/Erik and some extra resources create another brilliant game, than have a larger team ruin it.
And as long as Elliot can create a game as brilliant as DW, I could not care less if he scores rather poorly as an internet hype machine. It would be rather hard to create that brilliant hype without using time and effort that would be better spent creating the game, anyways.
Well stated Bingeling!
