To be more specific, Sinsoft can use some of the funding to hire artists 
for specific tasks.

1) In the demo case: hire artists to create a game environment

2) In the game case: hire artists to create new levels using any new 
features, etc

But as I mention, demo is unlikely, game is what they will accept.
