The Kickstarter had $85,000 pledged when it was canceled. A farcry from 500K, but definitely more than 25K.
As for not having a deadline, actually it does, for the sake of the development team. Keep in mind that pledgers are only charged when the next stage is reached (25K, 90K, 250K and 400K). Meanwhile however, development continues. So if a stage is not reached within a reasonable time, or worse, at all, who's paying for the development that goes on in the mean time? You guessed it. So you can bet the devs will do everything to get it done within a reasonable time and that they also have a backup plan should funding not go smoothly.
As for communication between the fans and the developers - I can pretty much guarantee that changed last night.
