We will be offering the exact same Kickstarter reward tiers on shardsonline.com for just 3 days via PayPal (starting Dec 13th and ending on Dec 16th). If you would like an email notification when this goes live you can sign up at http://shardsonline.com/pledge
The official Shards Online client is currently only confirmed for the PC platform. We are still investigating other platforms, but it is one of our goals to have full Mac and Linux support by the time we reach Beta.
We have! We've been covering our development costs for the past year from our own savings. The additional 50k is coming from friends and family of the team. When we refocused our development plan, we established that we needed a minimum of 100k to get the product from where we now are to alpha. We needed to be sure that we would have the rest of the funds before we asked our personal network to help us get the rest of the way.
