      "The ipad/Mac version has come to a complete stop and I'm trying to figure out what to do."

      It's been two months since that update (and a long time since funding). Exactly how much time is needed to figure out how to fulfill your obligations to your backers?

      Hi Jeff, I released version 1.0 for the PC in July. The ipad/Mac version has come to a complete stop and I'm trying to figure out what to do.

      Creator Jeff Pinard on October 14, 2013

      Jeff, Could you please give us an EST on when the full game is finally going to be released on PC and iPad? This is really dragging on and it's very confusing how you could have a full beta in 2011, yet here we are getting close to 2014 and still no real release. Or did it come out and I somehow missed it?

      Hey Jeff, I love how you update us regularly. It really makes me feel liked I backed a legit project. Wow, even like once a month would be cool. I have backed over 100 projects and you are one the worst on keeping people informed.

      Hi Nancy, The PC version is pretty much done. I need to update a few images. I'm still working on the iOS version which is going to be slow until I meet with my artist at the end of this month. I need him to convert all of the art down to ipad size.

      @Espen which challenge cards? Lightning? you have to match those bolt tiles. And the rewards you get are experience points with some being higher multipled than others. Lefi explained the traps. I have only seen traps with two matches needed but yeah they have to be back to back or you do over. The ring item can expose what you need to do for traps and all other hidden stats like monster weakness. Other challenge cards help you craft things - you can pick sword or shield then match the rest - sometimes you have to recheck the tooltip since it will progress - also I think the witch can damage you in ways too, that one is a little sporadic but easy to get rid of

      Unisus: This has been answered multiple times below. Yes, the game will of course allow you to save.

      Creator Unisus on May 9, 2012

      After restarting my pc after a necessary shutdown i just wanted to ask - will the finished game have a save function? I'd really like to play only a couple of hours each day ;)

    33. Missing_small

      Creator Espen Gätzschmann on May 9, 2012

      Aha... though I can't recall ever taking damage from a trap that was out almost my entire game yesterday.

    34. Aki1024.small

      Creator Levi Watts on May 9, 2012

      @Espen: From what I can gather about the trap cards is they have 2 to 4 objectives. Gather the right element rune and the first objective lights up. You now have the opportunity to find out the next objective, but should you match the wrong one, you trigger the trap and have to start over from the top. The first objective going transparent shows that you have to start over, but you still remember what the objective was.

    35. Missing_small

      Creator Espen Gätzschmann on May 9, 2012

      longbeach, almost all of the things you mentioned in your post I'm already aware of. What I'm confused about is mostly how the challenge cards work. Some, like monsters are halfway obvious (but I can't figure out the pattern for when and how often they deal damage), but stuff like traps and various other cards I can't even identify are way, way more confusing. The tooltips are often not very helpful right now, but I understand they're being worked on. Still, I'm not expecting to understand everything at this point when not having access to a finished tooltip system nor a help file. :)

      It'd only be cheating if the creator himself backed his own project, because that would mean he hasn't really committed fully to his own project from the start.
      There is obviously no such issue here. Jeff LaFlam is clearly 200% committed to Match and Magic.
      (Full disclosure: we are neither relatives, nor friends, I'm only judging by the pitch video, text descriptions and the demo ;)

    37. Magenta02.small

      Creator Michelle Gosse on May 9, 2012

      Yes, given that anyone can become a backer, it's hardly cheating. Plus, we get a game that we all want. Win-win. :)

      Creator DarthDavy - Weresheep of Sin on May 9, 2012

      I don't know if it's cheating. Parents always back their children financially. And I think a lot of the kickstart projects large pledgers are personal friends or family from the creators of the project. Anyway, I'm glad she did, because this game deserves to be finished.

      @ Espen, I wrote some tips down the list of comments - not everything but more of a survival guide. Try to use spells when they are up top since you have to pay 20 to bring them back to play from your pool and that can make you broke fast.

    43. Missing_small

      Creator Espen Gätzschmann on May 8, 2012

      Just gave the demo another go. It's tremendously satisfying to be at the brink of death, only to climb back up to power with a few deft moves (and a slight amount of luck). It's very good to know that this Kickstarter has succeeded now, even if it halfway cheated. ;) Can't wait to see how the game progresses. Now if only there was some documentation. I can't figure out what I'm supposed to do to deal with half the cards I receive as challenges.

      Hi guys,

      Sorry I've been a bit quiet lately we had a death in the family so I've been dealing with that. I want to assure you that I did not pitch in the big chunk of money but I found out who did. My mom did. She surprised me and I can't thank her enough (love you mom!). Thank you all for your kind backings and words.

    48. Mayor.small

      Creator longbeach on May 8, 2012

      @ Espen, yeah a little fishy. I mean if they knew they had an angel investor (or something more insidious) just to get $5,000 that doesn't really add up. I do love the game but questions abound on this one.. 0.o

    49. Missing_small

      Creator Espen Gätzschmann on May 8, 2012

      I could have sworn this game had about $5200 in total backing just a few hours ago. Looks like the new $5000 backer actually went way above the reward level and backed almost $10,000. To whoever you are: Thank you! :)
