And that's a wrap!

Well no, not quite. For those who couldn't pay with Amazon Payments, we're going to offer a PayPal pledging option for a week or so. You will be able to pledge to all the same tiers we had available here on Kickstarter. We'll share the link for that a little later on the What Pumpkin twitter.

But it is a wrap on the official Kickstarter campaign, and we are officially astounded at how enthusiastically you all rose to the occasion! It's been exciting to watch the progress, and overwhelming to see so many people (over 24,000!) offer their support. A million thanks, or maybe 2.484 million thanks, or hey how about a hundred billion thanks? Just... thank you. Now we get to repay you by making a great game for you!

Surveys will be going out to backers soon. If we need information from you to fulfill your rewards (such as shirt choices and sizes), you'll receive and fill out these surveys so we know what to send you.

And by the way, we didn't quite make the $2.5 million stretch goal here, but the PayPal portion WILL count, so we will surely meet the goal in the coming week!

      When will my payment be accepted? Money is still on my bank account. Askin cuz I've never payed with amazon payments before. Maybe I'll have to pay via paypal, its much easier anyway.

    6. Jety Lefr on

      YES!
      FUCK YES!!
      HELL FUCKING YES!!!
      (did some math... if every, Homestuck out there gave the mean/average donation, we would have broken the world record for most expensive game made ever) (we had at most, 1/41 of the fandom give) (we can do better... NEXT TIME!!! MWAHAAHAHAHAAAA)

      @Jess maybe its because that's the reward tier you had selected?

      Okay no, according to the kickstarter I only pledged $405 so my updated pledge probably didn't save...Aaaa what do.

      Jess on

      Uhh, i'm pretty sure I pledged that extra $10 for the postage, but in the email I received it said I only pledged the $405. What do I do?

      Naturally, there's going to be a wait in between the time the funding closes and the time the charge shows up on your statement - these things aren't 100% automatic
      It will show up soon don't worry!!
      The last kickstarter I helped fund had the charge show up on my statement within the day it was funded.

      It's going to be okay shhhhh

    16. HystericalNoisemaker on

      well, i forgot too pledge 10$ more, can i change that somehow, and my credit card is still not charged, why?

    17. Kimira on

      @Gareth now that it's over you can't on Kickstarter I don't think? But, when they open the paypal donations, maybe if you can confirm it's the same account you donated with through KS they'll let you extend your pledge instead of making it a brand new separate paypal pledge.

      This has been really exciting to watch and to be a part of! Congratulations, MSPA team, and I really look forward to watching the backer blog and playing the final product!

      Incredible, just incredible. Honestly, when we hit 2 million, I never expected us to get anywhere near 2.5 for the last stretch goal, much less only coke up short 15K (which Paypal will no doubt take care of). This is also now in the top 5 funded videogame projects on Kickstarter. :) (Currently 4th, but it looks like Project Eternity will likely knock us to 5th once the funding for that is over).

      Seriously though, that is incredibly impressive for Homestuck, I am just so excited :)

      I mostly lurked throughout this but I've got to say this was amazing :)
      I've never spent so much on a kickstarter and I have no regrets.

      Of course now I need to make decisions. Decisions are difficult..

      @Daniel Richman: Didn't you read that last portion of the update? "And by the way, we didn't quite make the $2.5 million stretch goal here, but the PayPal portion WILL count, so we will surely meet the goal in the coming week!"

      It will be counted towards the stretch tier! :D

      How many boonbucks are $2.48 mill?

    29. Wrapto on

      I don't have the words to express how proud of this fandom I am, or how happy I am to be a part of it. It wasn't just the donating or the love of the media or creators, it wasn't just the collaborations or community feeling. It wasn't just the countdown at the last few minutes or the way everyone rallied together. It was the fact that we're doing this for us, for the right reasons.

      You are all so awesome.

    30. Kiwizoom on

      What if some of us have a lot of dough sitting in the paypal account, and would like to add it to their Kickstarter pledge amount? Does it count to their prize tier?

      Yes. Hell yes.

    32. Daniel Richman on

      Will there be additional "stretch" rewards for paypal money after 2.5 mil?

    33. cloudNinja on

      Will you be continuing to update the Stretcheladder here as the Paypal pledges come through? I think everyone would like to know when we hit 2.5 million.

    34. Wil de Junco on

      I essentially just bought myself an early birthday present. At least that's how I will phrase it to ward off my parents' glares when they see my checking account.

      Enjoy my money

      This has been a huge success I'm happy that we managed to be the obisdian developers haha.
