I have shortly looked on the german site of the company behind. Their main-product is a cross-platform environment already supporting lots of platforms. So by this kickstarter they can add a couple of new platforms and make some money with it. So from their point of view would it make sense to support a (again from their view) dead and stoneold platform? Expecially considering possible future projects who are demanding. I personal do a lot of things with Aros on 68k and it is very fun and at least on emulation you have lots of ressources but I can understand that companies do not use it as target platforms.

You must always look at it, how are the chances that there is a growing platform and the chance to earn money with it. There are some C64 games but that are hobby projects by enthusiasts and not commercial development.
