First, we want to clarify how Kickstarter works for everyone. Kickstarter pledges have not taken any funds from you. Tomorrow morning, when the campaign fails to reach its goal, no one will be charged. All pledges no longer exist from that point forward and are automatically cancelled. This means you weren't charged, and won't be charged, for anything you selected on Kickstarter.
We know you're still interested in having access to Forge during the Alpha, Beta and even Release (at a price well below retail!) as well as getting those Founder's perks we offered as part of our Kickstarter tiers. To that end, we've formed a partnership with PlaySpan/UltimatePay to accept worldwide payments for Forge.
For the next 3 days, we'll set the price for the game at our Kickstarter prices or below. You'll earn the Founder's Title, and depending on which version you purchase also the exclusive skins and free content. Since we no longer have physical rewards, these rewards have been reduced in cost tremendously ($30 grants you the exclusive skins that you and only you will ever have!). We even have a 4 pack of Forge for $60 that includes these skins.
The URL to Pre-Order Forge is:
Note that you'll need to log into your account before accessing this page. By pre-ordering here, you'll keep your access to the Alpha (which we've decided to not shut down on 9/8, but instead have people continue to play likely all the way up to Beta!) and keep your Founder's perks listed there.
To reiterate: Your pledges here, on Kickstarter, will not be charged. You're welcome to cancel them in advance if you're nervous about this, but Kickstarter never takes or charges any money without reaching the goal and there is no possible way for us to reach the goal by 9AM tomorrow morning. The pledges here will all automatically be cancelled tomorrow morning when it fails to reach its goal. Your purchase at http://account.playforgewar.com/Products.aspx will be the only time you are charged and is the only way to maintain your Founder's perks and continued access to the Alpha, future access to the Beta and lock in Founder pricing.
Those of you that took the time to support us here, we hope you'll do so directly through our Pre-Order page. It is still going to the same company and same game as this campaign, and still makes a tremendous difference in development. We're proud to consider all of you a part of our starting community, and look forward to continuing to talk with you on the official forums.
Thank you, from all of us at Dark Vale, SuperGenius and Digital Confectioners.
