Update #3

New reward tiers unveiled, SLICKPAK, Linux support, and new reward tier perk unlocked!

A few new reward tiers have just been unveiled! They mostly center around the brand new SLICKPAK. It includes some fun Midnight Crew items like a tote bag, spade t-shirt, a set of pins, and sticker sheets. It also comes with something pretty new for us, which is a deck of Midnight Crew playing cards! The cards themselves will feature some pretty slick MC art.

The Scalemates have been quite a popular item in this Kickstarter, so we've shuffled things around a bit and added a few more slots to the $255 SNOUTPAK tier. There's also a new $1,000 that nets you all PAKS in the Kickstarter, plus an exclusive set of signed game concept art and special thanks in the game's credits.

And just a heads up: there's one more big round of reward tier updates coming up a little later in the Kickstarter!

The Stretcheladder has been updated to reflect all the goals unlocked so far. We've now secured Linux support for the game, and a reward tier perk of a Sburb House keychain has been added for all tiers of $105 and above. Next up is EFIGS (English, French, Italian, German, Spanish) language support! New stretch goals will be revealed after we reach the $1,000,000 mark.

      I'm kinda pretending he's also going to put their names in the game somewhere, maybe on a pedestal or something, though he might just mention them in the news when their troll comes up or their Soul Portrait is made.

      I have been informed that, yes, you can have more than one Kickstarter account if you'd like to make it easier to just buy Paks separately. You just need to use a different email address, but it's perfectly fine to use the same Amazon account for the money transfer.

      This is apparently something that was done by a numbers of fans at the Order of the Stick kickstarter.

      Thank Peter Cohen for the info.

      It seems as if giving the in-game credit thanks to only the 1000 pledgers is a little silly. Why not the ten and five thousand pledgers also? They are giving more money, after all.

      Creator Jani Ruotsalainen on September 12, 2012

      Really excited about the playing cards, but also worried about the quality - I'm still definitely going to get the pak no matter how crappy they are, but it'd be absolutely great if they were of good enough quality to be used repeatedly in home(stuck) games or card tricks. Could we get some clarification on this before the kickstarter finishes, maybe even detailed specs of the kind of deck you're going to use?

      @Taylor Miller You could always get to the $335 pack. It's an extra $80, sure, but you get what you want (as well as some Strider swag).

      Speaking of Strider swag, I wouldn't mind some Lalonde swag... maybe some Mutie stickers, or a passive-aggressive thank you note. ;p

      Man I'd loved the SlickPak but....that would mean I would lose my physical copy. The pins and stickers are neat,but I'd want the deck more. If this stuff ever gets to the What Pumpkin store Id be all over them.

      Honestly, I REALLY want that deck of MC playing cards. I've always been a huge fan of the intermission. But, unfortunately, $130 would break the bank for me... If I had a bit more saved up, I'd be on it in a flash. If those playing cards ever get offered in the What Pumpkin store, I'll definitely buy them, so it's my sincerest hope that they are. Otherwise I might have to poach some on eBay or Amazon.

      @OrangeAipom I guess they would. This tier sure sold out fast!

      With all these signed prints and then the physical copies, Hussie's wrist is going to die multiple times. That may be the reason why most tiers only offer Gamepak 1 lol.

      Maybe a GAMEPAK2 + MC CARDS tier would be pretty cool. There's just so much cool merch, though that it would be absurd to try to put up combinations that pleased everyone. I'm just hoping that the Scalemates, the Canopy T, and the MC Cards are available after the Kickstarter.

      Ugh, I want this so bad, but I don't want to abandon the Kickstarter print that I get with the $55 donation. The only way to get it AND the slickpack is to up it all the way to $330. I'd go up to $130 and maybe even $180, but $330 is just way too much for me... :(
