One True Game Studios would like to thank everyone for their offer of support, but we have decided to close the Kickstarter despite reaching our funding goal. The reason for this is simple: the spirit of Kickstarter is as a creative “last resort,” if there is no way to get your game funded, hit up Kickstarter to see if there’s enough community interest in funding it. Well, we are happy to inform you today that we've made a deal with a publisher to help us both finish and release Divekick to the masses! The finished game will be loaded with features and characters, and we are sure you'll be pleased with the result. Keep your eye on OneTrueGame.com for updates.
Though we will be canceling the Kickstarter, and thus will not be taking your money, we are going to make good on most of your offers to back us. Though we cannot honor game pre-orders or mail out T-shirts without taking money in, we do want each of the 800+ of you willing to back our game to be able to have some ownership in it. Check below to see your specific backer level and in what way we will honor it, and then check your Kickstarter Private Messages and reply to us to get us the details we request concerning your involvement with the project.
Pledge Level 1 - $10 – Though we cannot honor a pre-order, we would like to thank you all by letting you suggest a “Tip From Uncle Sensei” for our loading screen.
Pledge Level 2 - $25 – Because we are letting people who pledged $10 submit a Tip, we are going to let anyone who pledged $25 or more suggest up to 3 “Tips From Uncle Sensei”.
Pledge Level 3 - $50 – This one is the trickiest. No matter what your pledge level, if you want to get your hands on one of these shirts, we are going set up a shirt-pre-order form (just for the backer shirt, not the game) where you can still get one at a massively reduced price. We don't care about the profit here, so they will be around 15 dollars + shipping and handling. Though anyone will be able to order a shirt, no matter what their pledge level, those who pledged $50 or more will have their names added to the special thanks section of the game's credits.
Pledge Level 4 - $100 – We don't take a dime, but you guys are generous as hell, so we'll drop your names in the special thanks and upgrade you to the $200 reward and let you add your own color pallet to the character of your choice, and you'll get to name the color!
Pledge Level 5 - $200 - You guys are super generous! We'll let you choose and name three color pallets each for the three separate characters of your choice.
Pledge Level 6 - $300 - In addition to the above, you guys still get to appear in a new background in the game. We'll still need photos of you to work from, and you'll need to sign some paperwork, but everything is a go!
Pledge Level 7 - $3000 – We love you guys. We've already discussed your playable character additions, though we haven't announced who they are. Fear not. You can keep your cash and we'll make your awesome characters anyway. We'll be in touch as that process continues.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Thank you all again, and we hope to Divekick with you shortly.
