      Don't take it too hard, guys. I didn't want to blare it around prior to the funding deadline, but the lack of actual, varied gameplay footage really hurt you.

      Please continue developing this, and put together something more tangible that people can actually experience on their own PC - what with the setting being a very non-mainstream one, this is potentially the only way to draw players in.

      Good luck from your generally most disliked European neighbor! I sitll believe in your game!

      Don't forget to join the forum, folks :)

      Jammer jongens! :( jullie hebben de spirit heel hoog gehouden. Respect daar voor! Ik zie de update graag tegemoet over wat de volgende stap is.

    4. Triangle Studios Creator on May 31, 2012

      Thanks guys, we'll post an update later this afternoon.

      Really a pity, sorry. I hope you'll find another way. ;-)

      Too bad it didn't work out.

      Will there be a possibility on the cotd website to support development of the game with a pre-order using Paypal or iDeal?

    8. Filip Cornelissen on May 31, 2012

      Dan maar via PayPal! ;-)

    9. Ben Thomson on May 31, 2012

      Times like this I wish I'd won the lotto so I can fund these things myself

    10. Mark Gearon on May 30, 2012

      Yeah it will suck if this sinks the project, this game looks sweet. Who wouldn't look at the mocap alone and contribute?

    11. juryman00 on May 30, 2012

      Well hopefully this game will get done and I'll just have to bye it the traditional way. This game really does look great. It does not make sense how some projects get funded and others don't. This was a quality product.

    12. Ben Thomson on May 30, 2012

      One thing that has worked for other projects in their final hours is a cross promotion with something else finishing in the next day or two (preferably something well into the funding). People will often back both projects, if you can find one that will shout out for you!

    13. Triangle Studios Creator on May 25, 2012

      Correct you are, but we are working with a publisher who has shipping sorted out properly. We get very good rates that way :-)

      Wow, if you have really got international shipping covered as part of the deal that could have been a major factor in getting some international backers. I know I'll be increasing mine now I know I don't have to pay extra for shipping!

    16. Triangle Studios Creator on May 25, 2012

      @Thom, Tige tank! It is always nice to see the people at Omrop Fryslan support us with an article or interview :-)

    17. Triangle Studios Creator on May 25, 2012

      @Ben, as Kickstarter suggests, we have accounted for International shipping within each reward. So you don't have to worry about that. As Margriet suggested, we will add it to the FAQ :-)

    18. Thom on May 25, 2012

      Ik hearde jimme reportaazje krekt op Omrop Fryslân! It liket my in tige nijsgjirrich projekt! Folle lok mei de lêste 40.000!

    19. Margriet Spriensma on May 24, 2012

      Thanks Ben, we will add a FAQ about shipping tomorrow so it is cleared up and does not hold anybody back. At this moment we really can use any help we can get. So people back us with this amazing game!

    20. Ben Thomson on May 24, 2012

      One thing that was holding me back from pledging was the lack of clarification on international shipping. Most of the reward tiers come with a physical item, however it's not clear what needs to be added to cover shipping to (for example) Australia. Apologies if this is listed somewhere, however perhaps it could be clearer or in the FAQ.

      To potential backers reading this - please pledge. You aren't charged if it doesn't make the goal, and you can always adjust your pledge later if you need to. I know it's human nature to sit on the fence and think "I'll get around to that" - I did it myself until just now. But then I realised there are probably a lot of people out there like that, who are looking at the total and thinking "Hmmm, it might not make it". Thoughts like that are a self fullfilling prophecy! Chuck in even just the smallest amount to get the game - $15! You'll be suprised how quickly the total starts moving :)

    21. USSGreatePier on May 22, 2012

      Epic gameplayer trailer! Make or increase your pledges, folks :) This game really deserves it!

    22. Triangle Studios Creator on May 22, 2012

      @Mikael, thanks! We've send a personal thank you note over to the guys at Aterdux Entertainment!

      Welcome to all of the new backers today! It seems like we've been covered or picked up somewhere but the statistics don't show in particular where you all are from!

      Lever duad as Slav! Greetings from North Frisia
      Didn´t know that the western frisian used the same motto as the northern frisian did.

    26. Triangle Studios Creator on May 22, 2012

      @M B, We noticed that too, very nice! We're rendering the final gameplay trailer as we speak, so we're almost ready to release it.

    27. M B on May 22, 2012

      It seems to be picking up speed. Alpha gameplay footage would help a lot.

    28. John Payne on May 22, 2012

      How much would it cost to just get the novel? Is that a possibility?

    29. Norghat on May 19, 2012

      Seems solid, i'm in ! :)

    30. Florent on May 18, 2012

      Hi Triangle Studios! I'm a Belgian backer from Japan...ok, I didn't threw a lot of money yet, but more will come later :). And I'll try to get more people to throw in too!

      Keep the rhythm up!

    31. Triangle Studios Creator on May 17, 2012

      Hey Gabriel, We would love to get the attention of the Reddit crowd, but because we're not active Reddit users ourselves, it's difficult to see how we would draw the attention to our topics. We plan on hosting an AMA later tonight or tomorrow to see if that draws a lot of people, but perhaps our backers here can give us a good suggestion on the ultimate Reddit feature or easter egg.

    32. Gabriel on May 16, 2012

      Hey guys. I just noticed this project is not progressing at all... I'd like to suggest you to post it on Reddit. People there really help good projects from Kickstarter (their help was crucial for Republique, for example), and since this IS a good project, I think it might work. If you consider offering some Reddit easter egg, chances are you'll have lots of new pledges in some days :)

    33. Triangle Studios Creator on May 16, 2012

      Thanks Ivo, much appreciated! We're still considering adding new reward levels.

    34. Ivo Luijendijk on May 14, 2012

      Hey Triangle. Just a quick note to let you know that I upped my pledge so that I got the soudtrack in the current tier level (rather then wait for an all digital deluxe tier) :-)
      So you know what to do if you want even more... lol!

    35. Ivo Luijendijk on May 14, 2012

      Gameplay footage = you should up your pledge. folks... Or pledge if you haven't already... Serious developers deserve serious backing :) I love the vids... Can't wait for the release!

    37. Triangle Studios Creator on May 12, 2012

      To be honest, it is kind of hidden away. Next week we'll put the final bits in place and we'll be able to show you some Direct-feed HD material :-) For now, the obscure off-screen Game Jam footage will have to do.

    38. M B on May 12, 2012

      @Thagarr Gameplay footage? I can't see any gameplay footage anywhere.

    39. Thagarr on May 12, 2012

      Awesome, love the new videos! Finally some game play footage!

    40. M B on May 11, 2012

      Oh I see. The name makes sense if you know the story. :)
      Maybe I should read about it, it sounds interesting.
      groeten uit Utrecht.

    41. Triangle Studios Creator on May 11, 2012

      The name is definitely set in stone :) "Cross of the Dutchman" refers to Grutte Pier's battle with the Dutch at the Zuiderzee, where he and his fisherman fleet sank two dozen Dutch cruisers. From that moment Pier was known as the Cross (or Grave) of the Dutchman.

    42. M B on May 11, 2012

      Is the game's name set on stone? Or are you guys still thinking about it?

    43. Triangle Studios Creator on May 11, 2012

      Thanks! There are a lot of Kickstarter projects around, but sometimes it only takes a bit of coverage to make it work!
