I would definitely increase my pledge
Josh has already practically ruled out multi-platform for the pre-alpha and alpha state, while at the same time giving us hope for the beta version being for Mac/Linux as well.
Well, Josh hasn't said anything about releasing the alpha to the backers, note the wording in the backer rewards
PRE-ALPHA combat prototype/playable demo
and at least one post on this forum stating that what you get isn't actually the alpha, it's a combat prototype.
Point still stands about it probably not being multi-platform early 2013.
