Without prior funding, for the reasons you say, it is very risky.
I just read about a dev for a cooking game for iOS, who described how his game, costing 8.000 $ was able to cover the costs in a month after its release, and that that was pretty much it.
I don't mean anything with that sketchy example, just that niche markets and large costs can stop one on his tracks.
