These look cool, but I too fear that the set is too small, specific and limiting for long-term use. I think what these terrain sets really need is a set of light, dungeon-crawl-style rules for co-op play, a la Descent, Hero Quest, Darkfast Dungeons, or Guncrawl.

Vermin King: Yes, it looks as if these are primarily hardcopy items, BUT many of the pledge levels mention "and the appropriate accompanying PDFs". However, I can't seem to find anything that explains what this means. Probably buried away somewhere I just didn't get round to looking into, maybe in one or other of the videos beyond the headliner. The estimated shipping costs seem pretty horrendous for "lightweight items", however - even for internal UK mail.
I agree too that the scope is much too restricted to be useful, despite the lovely artwork. I doubt there'd be many arguments from folks here that papercrafting with PDF scenery is far more flexible, and thus gaming-useful, than anything in this set, but the KS materials don't need printing and making up, of course.
What disturbs me more is the costs seem very high compared to my original sets of cast and fully painted resin items from Dwarven Forge, which because they're geomorphic pieces, mean they are hugely flexible as to what layouts you can create. A square room or a straight corridor though will always be only that. Not sure why they haven't done sets of wall cover pieces and wall inserts, which would break up the room shapes, and alter the basic wall patterning, allow you to add secret passages in the (expanded with extra piece) "walls", and suchlike. Maybe that will come. Not sold so far, however!
stoff: These are the versions that i was talking about.

cowboyleland: I have a simple plan: never make money, never pay taxes! Kidding, I know taxes how we pay for civilization.

squirmydad: That's okay, so is the IRS. I'm pretty sure my tax return is one of the millions stored in trailers and unprocessed.

okumarts: My taxes are still at the accountant. They are backlogged.

Vermin King: Well, my day has been spent on work and taxes. Am I the last forum member to do their 2019 taxes?

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

Vermin King: Not all progress is beneficial...
