Golden key & FORCED hype day!
- The Golden Key

1. The Golden Key
The Golden key will give you access to these 4 exclusives (Illustrated below):
The Friday updater
Each friday we will provide you with a special update of how everything is going. How the team is doing, answers to important questions and most importantly how FORCED is improving. You can also suggest content for the updaters. We’ve already posted a taste for backers last friday.
The Beta Forum
You will get unique access to the closed FORCED Beta Forum. We will take this forum very serious and if you do as well, you can expect a high involvement level from us developers on a daily basis.
Whenever we have a build/”Stable version of the game” ready (typically 1 or 2 times a month, sometimes more) we will send it to you. This means that you will be able to try fresh prototype levels. This will also reveal how we go about our design and how FORCED progresses. Through the forum you will then be able to suggest improvements or simply tell us that we’ve hit the right spot! :)
Beta competitions As we want to achieve a level of competitiveness with FORCED as well. We will be implementing rankings and allow you to be rewarded for creative and effective ways to deal with a trial - actually a bit like “Meat Boy”’s system. So to test our balance we find it obvious to have competitions after the ranking and online multiplayer is up and running. And we will definitely also offer some cool rewards there, so if you can’t afford that $5000 picture at our bathroom, you might have your chance elsewhere (again might) ;)
2. FORCED hype day - 1st of November
We’ve had an incredible start on our Kickstarter campaign. But as we expected, things have cooled down, actually a little too much.
We spend a lot of time last week, sending out personal emails to the press. But we aren’t exactly the most known developers, so we are simply contacting most news sites through their “tips” emails instead of personal contacts.
Pixel Pirate made a video, even though he only shows the first tutorial’ish trial, we’re still pleased :)
Also RPS included us in their kickstarter roundup, but even greater, they mentioned that they would have a closer look on the demo we send them :)
Nevertheless we hope you're up for a hype day on thursday as we could really use your help! :)
We will start streaming from 08:00 PST 11:00 EST 16:00 GMT and we will keep streaming for a very long time, if there's a good amount of viewers :)
We're in the middle of planning some interesting stuff - e.g. we will sit down and play FORCED co-op, we will tell some stories, answer questions, hand out some rewards and we have a few surprises up our sleeves as well :) Also if you have suggestions for the hype day please comment or send us a message!
3. Damn heating
It’s been a cold weekend, heating broke during friday, the worst timing ever cause service weren’t available during the weekend. So the team has been developing while sitting in our sleeping bags and wearing our outdoor clothes. The winter usually come with a surprise in Denmark, and during sunday night it was so cold, that the team had to flee into the couch hiding beneath a ton of carpets with caps and big blouses while watching The Fellowship of the Ring. We were of course all very saddened that it had to come to that, but we promise to make the developer time up now that we have the heating fixed :) Thanks again for all the incredible support! And we hope your ready for some hype on thursday :)
