Additional rewards and top-ups

Hi guys! Thank you so much for all your suggestions. Many of you have told us you would like to see additional rewards. Well, we have been listening, and here's what we have come up with:

We have now added Beta Access to our Broken Sword Silver Member ($50) pledge level. Wondering what this means? We will give you access to a part of Broken Sword - the Serpent's Curse before it has been released and invite you to comment. We really do find your feedback incredibly valuable. 

Good news for all our $250 backers and above! You will receive an exclusive goat-shaped 16GB USB memory stick in addition to all your current rewards. We have not yet finalised the design, but here are some concepts that we are currently exploring:

Broken Sword Platinum Member ($175). This is a brand new pledge level, in response to the requests that so many of you have made! If you upgrade to this pledge level you can now have your box signed in addition to all of the lower level rewards. And we are delighted to say that Rolf Saxon (the voice of George in English) has agreed to sign the box alongside key team members. On top of this, you will receive the 'Broken Sword Design Document', which we showcased in this update. Of course anyone pledging $250 and above will have the option to have their box signed. 

Some of you have been asking for additional goodies and multiple T-shirts! So like many other Kickstarters we are happy to offer you this option. 

Available top-ups:

+$15 to add an additional digital copy of the game for Windows/Mac/Linux

+$30 to add a T-shirt (choice of at least 3 designs, available in S-XXL sizes)

+$50 to add a 16GB goat-shaped USB memory stick

How to top-up:

It's really simple to top up. Just go to "manage your pledge" and increase your pledge by the appropriate amount. You can top up as many times as you want with as many items as you want!

To give an example, if you're pledging $25 and you want to add a T-shirt then you select the $25 reward and add $30 to your original pledge. Now your total pledge amount equals $55 ($25 + $30 = $55). So it's pledge/reward level + top-ups = total.

Once the Kickstarter term ends, we will send out a survey to find out exactly which top-ups you want in addition to any other information we might need to send the rewards to you.

Please feel free to contact us if you need any help with this.

Thanks so much for your input and your continued support!

      me too i would top up for the history book and collector box :)

    2. Creator Brian Hopkins - Order of the Goat $7.77 on September 21, 2012

      Would top up for History of BS book

    3. Creator Philip Leach on September 20, 2012

      I agree with Carl. It would be nice to be able to top up for 1 or both books :-)

    4. Creator Palindrome Bob-XSF-I'm in AGL589-BG5.22 on September 20, 2012

      @Joana: If you already included $15 in your previous pledge, naturally you do not have to add it again, and only top-up $30. If there were no physical goodies in your previous pledge, you have to top-up $45. You have to pay delivery either via KS (before the campaign ends) or via Paypal (before it closes).

    5. Creator Carl England on September 20, 2012

      I'd like to add one of the 2 books available as a top up! :)

    6. Creator Ismael on September 19, 2012

      We ask Tomas to turn Tomas Rubio in Spain. Please: (

    7. Creator James Furlong on September 19, 2012

      Its a bit late in the day but any chance of a game poster top up?

    8. Creator Joana Lisa Dungca on September 18, 2012

      I read somewhere that there is an additional $15 fee for international deliveries, in my case, the Philippines. If I wanted a Shirt, should I top-up $45? Or should I top-up $30 and I will charged for the delivery separately?

    9. Creator Palindrome Bob-XSF-I'm in AGL589-BG5.22 on September 18, 2012

      Philippa: Probably the Paypal-link will still be available for some time after this campaign ends so you can still add the money there (and maybe shoot a small message to Revolution they have to add those two together).
      Please keep Nico's notebook out of the digital goodies.

    10. Creator Martin Opseth on September 18, 2012

      Haha. I agree with you, Jessica!

    11. Creator Jessica Hawthorne - The Obsidian Order on September 18, 2012

      I demand a full body goat. Heads will not do...I want something that will sit on my desk, and if I offer it coal talk to me.

    12. Creator Brandon Starkweather on September 17, 2012

      I would really like to be able to top-ups with one of those hoodies I see offered at the Seneschal Level!

    13. Creator Philippa Ferguson on September 17, 2012

      really gutted as so would pay the $50 more for goat but sadly get pay after this event stop is there anyway of giving you the $50 later if you made a pledge

    14. Creator Tobi (Crusader Kickstarter pls!!) on September 17, 2012

      lol, i love the goat concepts, hahaha awesome!!

    15. Creator Schadows on September 17, 2012

      Same as Jennifer above, "A" design seems the more pratical & funny of all (how do you make design "C" stands ??).

    16. Creator GeekJen (OotG Knight Commander) on September 16, 2012

      Design C is total nonsense (non-practical). You can't even put it on a shelve.
      Either A or B would be the sensible and intelligent answer.

    17. Creator Stew OotG Knight/Captain Bloodcoffee on September 16, 2012

      Definitely USB Design 3, it's unique and really cool!!
      Love that there'll be digital content on the USB too, look forward to that. :)

    18. Creator Luzifer Skalaar - 777 Order of the Goat on September 16, 2012

      I would vote for design C for the usb. It's fresh, angry and have never been done before.

    19. Creator mrfatso ~ Defender of The Goat on September 16, 2012

      Thanks guys for the tip, that sounds fun enough that i just joined up :D

    20. Creator Laura Polaco on September 15, 2012

      Any chance of getting things signed as a top up? I'm at the $100 level and I'd LOVE to have my poster signed, not so worried about the game box, but the $500 pledge level is way outside my budget.

    21. Creator JuanitaD-ArmikrogArmyGoat @ AGL589+$4.96 on September 15, 2012

      @Michael - Not Revolution, but yes. Whatever your pledge tier is, add $50 to it to get the goat USB. Even if your tier is $15, if you add $50 to it, you get the goat USB. When you click "manage pledge", be sure the total dollar amount showing at the top is $50 higher than whatever reward tier you have checked off. Then on the survey, indicate that the extra $50 is for the goat USB.

    22. Creator Michael Bunkin on September 15, 2012

      @Revolution, tell me please, can I get the Goat USB stick for extra $50 even if my pledge is less than $250? In my case, will I get one with a $150 pledge ($50 + $100 reward level)?

    23. Creator Revolution Software on September 15, 2012

      @Matthew It would depend on which reward level you have selected. If you have selected the $250 reward level you will receive 1 T-shirt. If you have selected the $100 reward level you can receive 6 T-shirts ($100 reward + 5 x $30). Pledge/reward level + top-ups = total.

    24. Creator Matthew Lee Venner on September 15, 2012

      @Revolution could you tell me please how many t-shirts would I get for the $257.77 pledge?

      Thank you!

    25. Creator Revolution Software on September 15, 2012

      Or two different T-shirt. Or the same T-shirt in different sizes! The choice is yours!

    26. Creator Revolution Software on September 15, 2012

      @Kevin Callau You will have a choice of 3 designs (maybe 4), you can get the same design twice if you want to. It is the same T-shirt as at the $100 pledge level, so if you pledge $130 you can get 2 T-shirts if you want. :)

    27. Creator Michael Hartmann on September 15, 2012

      @mrfatso:
      The short answer: The Order of the Goat is a fun way to increase pledges. Just add $ 7.77 above your current reward tier and you are a member.
      The long answer and a history of pledge clubs: http://forum.revolution.co.uk/topic/376/

    28. Creator Kevin Callau - Order of the Goat $7.77 on September 15, 2012

      Just a question, is the $30 T-shirt, the same which is in the reward of the 100$ pledge ?
      Thank you.

    29. Creator Martins Antony on September 15, 2012

      @mrfatso, nothing secret, it's just so many people were stucked in front of the goat in the broken sword 1... So it became the symbol of the game!

    30. Creator mrfatso ~ Defender of The Goat on September 15, 2012

      Guys, a silly question but just what is this order of the goat that i kept on seeing repeated here and there, is that like a secret cult or something much more sinister? Thanks.

    31. Creator NotDomo on September 15, 2012

      Just make sure the key ring isn't on a part that breaks off somewhat easily. I'm not sure how sturdy those ears are. Also, same concern as those above. the ring should be on the actual USB part. =)

    32. Creator Anios Selindar on September 15, 2012

      Oh My Goat ! XD

    33. Creator Alessandro Varoli - Order of the Goat on September 15, 2012

      I really love you guys. By the way i like the B concept of USB goat drive, much more functional than the others 2

    34. Creator Hayley Morris on September 15, 2012

      I do not like you now revolution, you are the first company to extract $175 off me, even pinkerton road only got $50. I just increased my bid. Would have loved the coffee book but now I is poor for a week lol. So glad this finishes on payday.

    35. Creator Alessandro Varoli - Order of the Goat on September 15, 2012

      It's A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. : I really love the idea of a goat shaped USB; and for just $15 more I get an extra copy of the game.

    36. Creator Hayley Morris on September 15, 2012

      Whyyyyyy Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! I just don't have the moneyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! Goes to cry in the corner.

    37. Creator Oliver Hoelzl on September 15, 2012

      It would also have been nice to get the templar keyring as a top-up option.

    38. Creator Björn Horn on September 15, 2012

      The beta will be synced in different languages​​?

    39. Creator Robbin Tapper on September 15, 2012

      $250 was a bit too high for me, so I went for the $100 mark. Great decision on the new inserted level, as I now upped to the $175 - level. (Well, I added a little bit more to get into our great Order)

    40. Creator Gösta Larsson - Order Of The Goat 7.77 on September 15, 2012

      Loving it Revolution. Great, no fantastic work. Gonna have to add 60 to get another BS T-shirt and a Goat T-Shirt

    41. Creator Vladimír Nekvasil - Order of the Goat on September 15, 2012

      I like goat design A the most! :)

    42. Creator Rabster on September 15, 2012

      Since the reporter's notebook is a $500 reward, I think it should be included as a PDF for $175-250 backers.

    43. Creator Moeez Siddiqui on September 15, 2012

      Those Goat designs look absolutely amazing haha!

    44. Creator Rewak on September 15, 2012

      I like the updated pledges and the top up idea, but could you please have a PDF of Nicos Notebook included at the $50 all digital content level? Please?

    45. Creator Evert Jonker on September 15, 2012

      I upped my pledge from $15 to $50 (Silver Member). Beta Access is always interesting! :)

    46. Creator Trembles on September 14, 2012

      Yay! I am so excited! I quite like design A for the Goat USB, but agree with others the keyring part may need to be on the tail?
      I certainly like the idea of the mug, but am feeling so spoiled at the moment, cannot possibly ask for more, can I? :-)
      Love the idea of Rolf Saxon signing the box!

    47. Creator Emma*Pirate Princess OOTG Armikrog Army* on September 14, 2012

      Eek! Amazing update! Thank you Rev for being A) Brilliant! and B) Listening to us! =D I have now bankrupted myself, as I MUST have the USB stick and I suggested the pledge of $175 with signatures! So I may as well up to $250 =D amazing rewards!! I love design A for the goat, but agree with having the keyring on the drive, I like the idea of a goat having its head stuck inside my pc =) also the original broken sword goat had a very odd tail...but i like the concept art of the new BS goat with a proper tail better =) not sure i follow what nina said about the usb having content on it, is it the digital files directly as per rewards or something extra?

    48. Creator JuanitaD-ArmikrogArmyGoat @ AGL589+$4.96 on September 14, 2012

      @Raphael - That doesn't surprise me at all, though it does make me a little sad. RPG's have a huge fan base to draw from, just like Homestuck Adventures. There aren't as many adventure gamers, though I think adventure gamers are generally more dedicated to their genre.

    49. Creator Roman Schaub on September 14, 2012

      if you were to lose*

    50. Creator Roman Schaub on September 14, 2012

      concerning the usb stick design: based on experience, it's better if the key ring is attached to the actual drive rather than the cap. If you were to the part not attached to the keys/keychain, you'd at least still have the drive.
