The Final Push Topped Off with a Reddit AMA!

Posted by CIA, Inc. (Creator)

With each passing hour, we come closer and closer to the end of the Kickstarter campaign.  The road's been long, but you guys have matched us passion for passion with every step of the way.  Before things wrap up completely, we do have a few things left to do:

The Reddit AMA (4pm Pacific Time)

At 4pm Pacific time TODAY, we'll post an AMA on Reddit!  For those not familiar with the format, anyone and everyone can come in to ask questions of Hiro about all the things you've been burning to ask about Project Phoenix, whether we've been able to figure out Uematsu's favorite beverage or how Marcus's evil sister's roommate's second cousin, twice removed on her father's side will impact the storyline!  So come on out to in 2.5 hours as of this posting and join in the fun!

Project Phoenix IRC Room

We welcome more ways for you all to interact with your fellow fans and thankfully, you've beaten us to that punch by starting an IRC chatroom.  For those of you who don't have mIRC or any other IRC client, we've gone ahead and created a way for you to log in through using mibbit.  So if you're looking for a way to chat up other Project Phoenix fans, hop on by.  We'd love to see you around!

Future Hangout Opportunities

Yesterday, we toyed around with Google Hangouts and we definitely love the ability to interact with you all through that medium.  So with that in mind, we'll be planning some future hangouts, both as a way to answer more of your questions about Project Phoenix and as a way for us to get to know you better and for you to get to know us better.  After all, this Kickstarter's success would not be possible without you and for that, we are really grateful for the opportunity to connect with each and every one of you!  We'll be letting you know when we'll hold our next one.

So a little over 10 hours left to go, let's make this an awesome ride to remember!

      Pity I can't edit. If you read on it would imply that tiers will still be available. You just won't be able to obtain the exclusive stuff. (i.e. all the various phoenix digital content – cape, egg, wings)

      Yea, I cannot find the Reddit/IAma thread anyone have it?

      @Juan, no worries. That is more what I got more by reading between the lines rather than directly stated. They have definitely said somewhere they are leaving paypal open. Whether it will be tiered pledges still or something else is not said. And yeah without it the late reveal of all those new tiers makes no sense at all.

      Can't find can someone put actual link

      Looking forward to the hangouts!

      @Geoffrey I didn't know about that XD. I didn't understand the new goals, very high and in the last moments.

      Thanks for the info, with that option I think we'll get all the goals.

      How much funding do we have with the paypal? :D

      @Frogun: Actually, no - some of them are under various legal restrictions, given where they work - remember everyone at CIA is functionally a part-timer - that's why they aren't worried about salaries - this games a labor of love. But that means some of them can't be publicly acknowledged right now.

      Well, even if you don't get that much money in KS, you're already developing for steam. That's always going to be a goldmine for any game dropped in it. Seeing as we're almost to Zero hour, you should probably just reveal the whole team now. Use as much name recognition for Reddit as you can.

      @Juan, they have said they will leave pledging open in some form on their website till late 2014. So plenty of time to hit those goals still. Otherwise it would have made no sense to reveal all those new stretch goals recently anyway.

    11. Juan Esponera on

      It's a shame that we're still far from the 1Mil goal, but man this is the first project I have ever backed and it was really amazing

      The game is gonna be great, I'm sure of it

      @CIA: also - there were a couple of suggestions about what people thought would be a good idea about how to change the KS site before it gets locked down when the campaign ends.

      The big one was to place the paypal store link right at the top, in bold, making it clear that there was something more to be done/bought, and that the campaign was still on-going. The other was to move the stretch goals to the top (maybe starting with just the last completed stretch goal?), so people could see what supporting the campaign would get them, and how you want your game to grow further.

    13. Hobbie on

      Yeah, it would be awesome if we could upgrade our pledge even after the end of the KS campaign. The guys at Frontier Developement did it for their new Elite game and it gave me the possibilty to reach the prenium collector tier (boxed edition and such) over time. For people like me who can't plegde a big amount of money in one go, it sure is a benediction ! ^^
      Would love to add 10/15$ each month until I reach the Treasure Hunter tier !

      Anyway, i wish you guys a great final lap for your race !

      Bonne chance ! From France ! ^^

      @CIA: How's that paypal looking?

    15. Michaël Wilkey on

      Do we need an account for Reddit?

    16. Lars on

      I hope you'll continue the campaign the way Star Citizen and Shroud of the Avatar has done through their websites. Especially Star Citizen has busted down a lot of stretch goals since their kickstarter ended.

    17. Raphael Oliveira on

      Would be totally awesome if we got to the next milestone (explorable world). Hope we can get more backers on reddit.

    18. Giru017 on

      Thanks for being so open, for this awesome opportunity to be part of something this big and for giving us [in a near future] an awesome game to look forward to!

      Man, I'm really hoping for the next milestone. Explorable worlds make the classic RPG so much more engaging. Hopefully the AMA pulls some new backers at the last minute.

      Great idea to get more pledges by going to reddit. Looking forward to joining the conversation!

      I think you should have done the Reddit thing a while back.
