Thank you! What Happens Next, Late Backers, and Checking Payment Info
Hello once more, friends of Abe!
Thank you all for your support and backing during the Kickstarter campaign.
It was a great success, not only in terms of funding but also in the response we saw to the project, the passion shown by the Oddworld community and the desire to make everything the very best it could be.
So thank you all for your enthusiasm, stories, support and backing!
What happens next?
Kickstarter spends a couple of weeks collecting pledges and contacting people whose pledges could not be collected (due to bounced payments, expired cards and the like).
A great many pledges have already been collected. However, there were also a number of these failed payments, and so we would like to ask anyone whose card has not already been charged to check that the card information held by Kickstarter is up to date.
This will ensure your card is charged, your pledge collected, your backer number preserved and, most importantly, that your rewards can be delivered next April!
CrowdOx Pledge Manager
We are very pleased to be partnering with CrowdOx for pledge management services for this campaign.
In a couple of weeks, all backers will receive an email inviting them to access their pledge details via CrowdOx. It's here that you'll be able to select your rewards, manage your add-ons, submit benefactor names and manage your shipping details.
Shipping will be charged closer to completion of the book, and you'll also have the opportunity to confirm or change your shipping details at that point if you've moved, for example. Again, this will all be dealt with through CrowdOx.
Throughout the campaign we had a great many people ask if they could pay via PayPal. As many of you know, Kickstarter does not support this payment method.
As such, we've taken steps to offer those that missed out on the campaign the option to back the project and receive the same rewards for a very limited time only.
Our Kickstarter page has been updated with a "Pre-Order Now" button, which will take you to our website where you can register as a Kickstarter late backer.
This offer will expire at 11:59pm BST / 6:59pm EDT on Friday 4th May.
After this offer expires, all further pre-orders will switch to the standard pre-order process and will not include the Kickstarter-exclusive rewards. In both cases, pledges will be handled via CrowdOx.
Thank you, everyone, for your support.
We look forward to updating you again in May to let you know how work is progressing!
