      What format is the soundtrack in? MP3?

    2. Jon Evans on

      How do I add more money? I want to up my pledge.

    3. Jerome Sly Robinson on

      If We changed our tier but still added $5 do we get the OST or not?

    4. Adam Boisvert

      I'm glad I'm not the only one that didn't know what "OST" meant.

    5. Michelle Ngo on

      For the alternate drifter, I'm a bit confused. Is it like another side character we get to play after the main story is over, with its own storyline and everything? Or is it just an appearance your main drifter can take in-game?

    6. Corrodias on

      This is in reference to the Shantae crossover: Guys, please, cool it with the "exclusives". The reason i back games is not so that other people can't experience them to their fullest.

      5$ for the OST? Excellent. Pledge upped.

    8. Christophe Mangot on

      $5 OST ? Awesome, up again my pledge.

    9. Matthew Barker on

      If I go upto the Alternate drifter package is that going to still give me the SNES styled box and manual ? because if I HAVE to choose between the two I choose the box but I'd love the Alternate drifter as well ;___;

    10. Andrew Helps on

      So I'm currently on the Physical Box/Manual tier (I like tangible things!) and I am super keen for the physical copy of the Art Book. Will the art book be available afterwards? Or is there a way to have ALL THE ITEMS OF TANGIBLE NATURES in one beautiful package of purest joy? (that hopefully I can afford.)

    11. Frederico Almeida de Jesus on

      I'm a international backer and I want to buy both the physical box and the artbook. They will be avaible outside the Kickstarter, once they aren't avaible for now?

      I'm so happy about the $5 OST add-on! Thank you! <3

    13. Cynical Felidae on

      I believe its been stated before, but I'll throw it out there, Any addons you pledge for, there will be a survey sent out AFTER the project ends. You will state then what the extra money you pledged is for. Relax people, Heart Machine has it covered.

    14. Loweak on

      Yeah, where can we note the 5$ pledge for the OST ?
      I did it and couldn't find it...

      Adam Curtis on

      Hello! First time commenter, first time congratulator on the successful kickstarter! Just wanted to say it's such a shame to see that they can't ship the T-Shirt abroad, but is there any way around it? Could I upgrade my pledge to the $60 and add the additional cost for delivery?

      BloodyShade on

      What is the official twitch? There's no link in the post.

    17. Brian Reyes on

      Can we stop revealing the bosses?!? Leave something up to my surprise please

      javi on

      I have the same problem. I added 5 dollars to my 15$ pledge but where I can choose the OST option?

    19. Heart Machine Creator on

      The times for the stream are in PDT - Pacific Daylight Time. Live from Los Angeles!

    20. Nadine Wagner on

      I added 5 bucks to my pledge but where can I write that I want the OST? there was no survey, or will you send them out later?

    21. Sivakorn Wattanapenpaiboon on

      Damn, I pledge 40$ just for OST, but now I could have do it for much less. If only there's Alternate Drifter add-on as well....

    22. Abdiwak Yohannes on

      Artbook and OST addon... added. :) That's all I got, thanks for the awesome ride!

    23. Elliot Acosta MNo. 11060 on

      thanks for the art book :)

    24. Matthew Barker on

      If I go upto the Alternate drifter package is that going to still give me the SNES styled box and manual ? because if I HAVE to choose between the two I choose the box but I'd love the Alternate drifter as well ;___;

      Sindre Helgevold on

      Can i wait until the alternate drifter is revealed and then buy it ?

    26. James Lewis on

      Will the Livestream possibly be LIVE on YouTube as well?

    27. Joel Forth on

      @Andreas Larsen: I know how to look up different time zones on Google. What I didn't know was what time zone Heart Machine is in. Although I am in the UK, I asked about GMT because I assume most people know what their time zone is in relation to GMT.
      Anyway, thanks for the answer.

    28. Sharkey on

      Nice, so yeah you won't need it. =D

      Ramiro on

      Thanks sharkely I already pledged for the resilient print

    30. Sharkey on

      @Stephen
      You can buy extra console copies at $15/each.

    31. Sharkey on

      @Ramiro
      It's a smaller print (11x4) of the Resplendant Print poster (18x24), unsigned.

    32. Dawn on

      Yeah, art book add-on!! (Great other add-ons too!)
      Also, I'll try to make it to the stream!

    33. Missing avatar

      Ramiro on

      Can someone explain to me what the limted compact print is

    34. Stephen De Carlo on

      Also, will we find out what the prints look like before the end of the campaign?

    35. Stephen De Carlo on

      No extra console copies? I don't need one, I'm just curious.

      P.S.- Thanks for the art book!

    36. James Lewis on

      I'll be subscribed and watching through the entire stream! Also, I hope to thrash out some fan art for you all during! I CAN'T WAIT, I'M SO EXCITED.

      Edward Lebar on

      OST add-on! That's what I like to hear! Looks like you're getting another $5 out of me.

    38. Volo on

      I like this fan made Voice Over Ad. http://www.youtube.com/watch…

    39. Andreas Larsen on

      @Joel Forth you can easily find that on google but it's +8 hours to those times stated for you in the UK.

      Case Willems on

      @Sharkey
      Yeah ok, but the wording was a little vague.

    41. JusticeBolt on

      OST add on ! Oh yes! Upping my pledge :-)

    42. Sharkey on

      @Case
      It'll be the last boss reveal for the KS, I doubt Alex would want to spoil the last boss. =D

    43. EveryoneLovesAGoodBum on

      Is it a hard cover art book?

    44. Sharkey on

      SWEET, thanks for the artbook add-on, Alex! =D

    45. Missing avatar

      Case Willems on

      Is the final boss reveal the last boss being revealed or the game's final boss?

    46. Joel Forth on

      What times are they in GMT?

    47. Socrates on

      Disasterpiece OST addon? Yes please.

    48. Heart Machine Creator on
