      Pledged $10. This is all round a selfish donation, partly because it makes a game I really want to play a reality, and partly because it is essentially a pre order. :3 You can thank Notch (and of course yourselves for making such an awesome game) for that $10, since he tweeted about this (which is how I discovered the first one too :D). Was it him that donated $1000? xD
      Also, my only criticism for the first game was the spider bit. The sudden reliance on precision felt out of place in a game like Octodad. Good luck with the second game anyway, everything in the trailer so far looks promising :)

      I sent you guys $100. Thanks for the first game and good luck on the new one!

      Donated just 5, would have donated more but I spent a boatload of money on the Steam Summer Sale... I'll raise my donation if I really have to - but it looks like you'll be okay.

      We all really appreciate everyone's support for us and the game! It's amazing what everyone has accomplished in less than a day's time. Keep it up everyone! We'll be updating the page with FAQ information soon.

      I still have the original installed; Nothing is more therapeutic than struggling to be an octopus with an uncompromising and problematic lifestyle then going back to reality where where life seems oh so easy in comparison. A sequel would be very welcome.

      Great to see this happening. The original game was one of the most original, fun and hilarious games I've played.

      So pleased to see this up on the go. I remember playing the original when it was featured up on, and yet again they've pointed me over to the project. So you guys owe them or something, at least for my pledge anyway.
