I would love to see BYOND bring in a bit more money, seems to me that BYOND lacks two things: (1) effective advertising and (2) Any money whatsoever.
Once flash deployment is ready for launch, why not rebrand the platform? Come up with a more marketable name, shed the low quality tile based game reputation that has followed for years which have been addressed with interface/large icon flexibility and other new features and re-release the platform and change the site branding as well.
The point of this is that, go on www.kickstarter.com and say that you are working on an online game making platform for 2d games that can be run as a standalone exe, flash game or on a community site and just see how much interest pours in. You could raise some much needed capital AND get serious advertising and then re-launch and get both an infusion of new interest and some project funding to keep Tom and LummoxJr from perishing from Ramen Noodle malnutrition.
It is just an idea.
