Today has been the largest funding day since this Kickstarter began!
Hooray for the Penny Arcade bump!
Went to sleep, knowing that I would come back to find this thing funded!
Here is the daily Kicktraq chart: http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/1965800643/solforge-digital-trading-card-game/#chart-daily
And yes. Over 20k so far today, and it's just past noon on the east coast. On track to be the biggest day so far :)
If my numbers are correct, $20,000 has been pledged since 12:30am Pacific time $20,000 in 8 hours. Holy smokes! I think this gaming group is Amazing!!! Game on!!
Agree with the viking down here XD
@Gary Games - You should make an image that shows what each level will be getting, with the promotional items included. It's always very cool to see how the amount of stuff increases with each pledge level.
And when people can see what they'll be getting, they might back more.
@Mark Lin - If you want it shipped to your Canadian address, then add $15 to the pledge. If you have a US mailing address, then you can get it shipped there for free. You'll be asked your shipping address and other info some time after the Kickstarter ends.
Game looks great! I live in Canada and dropped $100 to back the game. Will I still get a t-shirt or do I need to provide a US mailing address or add another $15?
Very happy to see that we were able to reach the goal. Hopefully they will release a beta version soon for us to try out as I am very excited to start playing! Lets hope we can start hitting some stretch goals too!
i am so very excited about this game!
HUGE congrats to Gary Games!
i still wish we should get our hands on the version of the game you demoed at PAX and GenCon ;-)
The best way I could have started today!!!!!!!!!!!!
have you read the front page?... you can gain cards through playing (single player campaign mode) there will be booster drafts which you buy some sort of ticket for (tournament based)
but that is exactly the reason why you should pledge more.... take the $25 teir you will get 2 starters and 5 boosters... thats perfect to get you up and running with the game!!
if your a keen TCG player then aim higher because you are getting such a good deal on store credit that if you wanted to draft etc they are basically half price right now in terms of credit and you get a free one if you go above $32...
@jerseydvd GG has said that all cards can be unlocked by playing the game.
Qoute from the frontpage "You can earn cards and currency through gameplay to improve your decks without paying a dime!"
I'm worried about committing to more than the $5. I'm not sure I want to commit to a game that seems like it will rely heavily on purchasing new cards.
At $5 I get to try it out and decide afterwards.
Do I NEED booster packs to play?
Ain't that a nice present Brian? ;)
Yay for getting SoForge funded!
When the chat will be today
in some common time zones..
PST (west coast US) = 13:00 - 15:00
EST (East Coast US) = 16:00 - 18:00
UK = 21:00 - 23:00
CET (Central Europe) = 22:00 - 24:00
EEST (Eastern Europe) 23:00 - 01:00
Gratz guys! keep up the good work cant wait to get my hands on a Beta key and start playing for myself
Congrats on getting funded guys! Can't wait to see this game come out :D
@rikki actually it's 8 hours. So 9PM to 11PM.
Common sense says completely free. I don't think you'll need to bring your own boosters to drafts here anyway, just a coupon.
When you guys wake up, I have a question! For the Free Draft for life tier, is the one per day draft completely free, as in you do not need anything in order to play. Or is more akin to MOTO where you have to provide your own booster packs, but you will not have to pay any "tickets".
ok done it -7 hours.... so from 8-10 tonight for me!!
guys im from england, its just coming up to 1pm here... the Q&A is 1pm -3pm PDT... does anyone know what time that will be in the uk... im having an epic fail trying to work out the conversions!!?? haha
i think its the excitement.. haha
So successfully kickstarting makes this a level 2 project. When does it become level 3?
We did it. Great work everyone. The last tiers update was awesome an made me change my tier.
I'm so trilled :D
Just woke up (2 PM here) :) This is so awesome.
Upped my pledge to 40$ :D
Yay, just noticed that we hit the 250k!! And happy birthday Brian! I'm looking forward to the Q&A today, this is gonna be exciting :-)
if everyone under the 40$ goes for that pledge we can easily reach the first stretch goal !!! just saying ;-)
Q1 is the official date.. though you here lots of "January"
When is the beta to start?
Thanks to Penny Arcade ... I'm a huge Ascension fan (counting down the days to Immortal Heroes hitting my LGS so I can pick it up), so this sounds great, and I'm glad I found out about it before the last day.
This is freaking great, I'm glad we finally did it. *Crossing fingers for animated cards*
come on guys.. lets hit these stretch goals... all you guys in the $5 and $15... up that investment!! this game is going live so get yourselves some store credit!! you know you will use it!!
Now on to the stretch goals! Lets see how many more awesome features we get to add! :)
WOOT!!! We hit our goal!!!! Thank you so much!
YESSS we did it !!! now we'll go for the animated card guys !!! Congrats GG guys !
I hope to be there for the chat as well, because now that we reached the goal, things are going to get interesting!
Let's aim for Stretch goals!!!
Oh damn, I missed it. Well done everyone.
wow pledges are coming in fast!!! last stretch effect and also whole post written about Solforge on the main page of penny arcade is sure to boost numbers!
stretch goals here we come!! awesome awesome!! even though chat will be middle of the night for me I'm going to be there!
Just couldn't resist the $1980 tier :) Congrats to all of us!
Aaaand we're kicked! :D
just pledged 250 entirely due to future android support, and this looking incredible. Glad to help!
I have faith in this game, just updated my pledge to 60$.
And Happy Birthday :)
Thanks Adam & Charles. The 185 (I want the tshirt) vs 250 quandary is an odd one but a luxury problem to e sure! I'm 33 so can afford to support these things and always said id be in for one booster box (£85) worth of SolForge. Think I'm going to up to the £200 credit which should get me a Lot of Drafts or Sealed events to play in. I can always add
Up to 250 or 500 should the value become that bit clearer. If I had 1980 spare I'd do that for sure, but that would mean retiring from MTG and Ascesnion style games for a bit and the stores I run games at may be upset... :D
Let the final SolfOrgy commence!
