      It's back up now.

    2. Creator Dário Mesquita on September 10, 2012

      Still down for me.

    3. Creator SonOfBDEC on September 10, 2012

      It's up as of 2:48 Central Not sure why you guys had it go down.
      (Maybe it's a GoDaddy site? godaddy.com got crashed by Anonymous about an hour ago.)

    4. Creator matthew turner on September 10, 2012

      just went down for me.

    5. Creator Zack.P on September 10, 2012

      Is MSPA down for anyone else?

    6. Creator Ricci on September 10, 2012

      Extremely curious to see what the new reward perk is!

    7. Creator Kacey NubsMcshouty Sama on September 10, 2012

      Best of luck, Team MSPA! We got this.

    8. Creator Samuel Driskill on September 9, 2012

      I'm so glad this is taking off so well! I wish I could donate more, but I'm stretching my budget as it is. I don't know how possible, or useful this would be, but if it raises enough to put on major consoles, would it be cheaper/easier to put them on slightly older ones like a ps2 instead of ps3? just a thought I guess. ^^

    9. Creator Dário Mesquita on September 9, 2012

      I was referring to the possibility of the ??? items being included in a new 100$/250$ pak when revealed.

    10. Creator Get Takeshi on September 9, 2012

      Ceu Guitart, MSPA crew will reveal the ??? items when they're unlocked, or close to unlocking.

      Firestryke31, Kick Start donations slow down a LOT after the first week or so.

    11. Creator Dário Mesquita on September 9, 2012

      I'm with Rafe, I'm willing to donate up to $700 but am sticking with the 400 tier for now, I'm sure higher tiers would be very helpful fort the Kickstarter.

      Also, to the MSPA crew, can you reveal whether the ??? items will be sold seperately later on or not?

      Thanks.

    12. Creator Firestryke31 on September 9, 2012

      *does some simple calculations*

      If people keep donating as much as they have averaged over the past 6 days, we'll get over $4.5 million. However, I predict a slowdown as the most desirable tier reward has already sold out and the most dedicated fans have already heard about and donated to this. I think we will possibly hit the $2 million mark by the end, if not very close.

    13. Creator GuyWithPasta on September 9, 2012

      @Rafe: Not a part of the MSPA crew, but, by the looks of it, you may just wait until tomorrow, when they hit 950k.

    14. Creator babs803@hotmail.com on September 9, 2012

      nice! looks good.

    15. Creator sean williams on September 9, 2012

      it says alot about me that i find those stickers woth my 105 dollar pledge alone :P

    16. Creator Rafe Saltman on September 9, 2012

      Attention MSPA crew, I am currently pledging at $410 but if you added more reward tiers, I could increase my pledge to as high as $1000. Please give me a reason to throw more money at you!

    17. Creator artisticVulpes on September 9, 2012

      Nah, that file was harmless.

    18. Creator Scott Arciszewski on September 9, 2012

      Oh really? Are there any reverse engineers in the fandom? :D

    19. Creator Ian Kreeger on September 8, 2012

      This post /|\ (above) links to a download and it kinda makes me nervous, especially with people saying that a particular sburb download is a backdoor virus.

    20. Creator Diedre E. Casey on September 8, 2012

      wow I love those stickers and whats this about? http://startbeta.tumblr.com/ this confuses me

    21. Creator Carl Nelson on September 8, 2012

      I want a joke stretch goal like, real SBURB at 1 billion.
      because you know we would want it so much we'd sell whole countries just to reach it.
      (since the meteors would destroy them later anyway, who cares?)

    22. Creator Raive on September 8, 2012

      I would love to see some information on network (Multiplayer) support. If we hit high enough on the ladder? Hurray for Homestuck! :D

    23. Creator John Smith on September 8, 2012

      $200,000,000,000,000 - Question how in the hell we're in debt
      And a real copy of Sburb with complementary Pop-o-Matic Warhammer or Vrillyhoos.

    24. Creator Alessio Dirnt Verardo on September 8, 2012

    25. Creator tacticalDrumgod on September 8, 2012

      @Micheal At 20,000,000,000,000 USD, I think we can do both.

    26. Creator Michael English on September 8, 2012

      At twenty trillion dollars, we sacrifice the game and fix the economy instead.

    27. Creator dr.Equivalent on September 8, 2012

      I don't belive, no one asked.
      What will be for ONE ZILLION?

    28. Creator dr.Equivalent on September 8, 2012

      Booyeah.
      That's what just happened.

    29. Creator Bro Strider on September 8, 2012

      Todd be nice! He did tell us up to a millon would be for support on other systems. Plus for some people that's an important update! And to be fair linux is.........i mean it's kinda......ok it's pretty much irrellevant to me but some people like it! And we should respect that.....personally i am only really looking forward to what's coming at around 1.1 million though xP...and maybe 950k

    30. Creator Mark on September 8, 2012

      Look at the scrollbar on that Stretcheladder; it must go up to a billion dollars!

    42. Creator Josh Wilson on September 8, 2012

      Alright, that makes a lot more sense then. Thanks! =3

    43. Creator Nelsolla on September 8, 2012

      what is exactly an EFIG?

    44. Creator MS Paint Adventures on September 8, 2012

      @John Wilson: Don't worry, any extra budget will go directly into making the game a better game! The stretch goals are not there to tell you what we'll be using the budget for, but how we'll be rewarding backers for reaching those levels! Remember, backers are valued and appreciated, but you aren't privy to how the sausage is made, so to speak. Stretch goals are for YOU, not us! :)

    45. Creator John Smith on September 8, 2012

      Yes, let us hope that it spreads to consoles.
      Then the homestucks can be sitting down in their cosplays and hugging their scalemates as the game installs.
      ^ Joke. But that'd be a funny thing to happen if it did.

    46. Creator Iscariot on September 8, 2012

      Also, Josh, I'm not sure why you're factoring taxes into the initial capital transaction? This is project financing, not profit. They'll pay taxes on what's left over after they've paid for the game's expenses, ie. not very much.

    47. Creator Iscariot on September 8, 2012

      Adding support for other platforms and languages is a way of extending the game's reach in the hopes of turning a larger profit in the long term. So yes, it's important. The more places they can sell it, the more people they can sell it to, the better. A game isn't just for people who are already Homestuck fans - it will be trying to prove itself in its own right and if it's as good as we're expecting it to be, it should be able to do that, and it'll need as wide an audience as possible. (Though even if all the adventure game fans in the world buy it it'll still never have as many fans as the comic does.) Higher production quality might shift more units, but not in such a quantifiable way.

    48. Creator Gramin the salmon on September 8, 2012

      Yes. This is good news. Now we just need 950k and hopefully it's something like pins or something even better possibly.

    49. Creator Marina C. on September 8, 2012

      Voice acting (and in so many languages) would eat a bunch of money. Besides, many people aren't so keen on the game having canon voices (even if Homestuck characters would only appear marginally). I know I'm not, I hope it'll be text-based.
