Introducing a new reward level!

It’s only been a couple of days, and we’re getting a lot of response to our project. However, we’re also noticing that in order to appeal to a larger audience, we need to make a big change to our reward structure. Two major changes are in effect immediately, and we hope this encourages a lot more people to become backers of the project!

#1 - We’ve added a new pledge level at $15, rewarding backers with a digital copy of the game! You will also receive the previous reward, listing you in the credits and giving you the Ambassador status on the CotD forums.

#2 - All backers who have chosen, or will choose the $25 reward will now receive an additional digital copy of the game to give away to a friend (perfect for co-op!). In addition to that, we are also adding a high quality digital art book featuring sketches, concepts, characters, and environments of the game.

We understand that some of you might be confused about this change. Please know that we are doing this in order to severely increase our chances of reaching our goal before May 31st. We believe that listening to feedback is one of the most important things to do in order to succeed in a crowd funding project, and we will continue to do so in the future.

We also want you to know that as we write this, the first 111 people have already backed our project. We are grateful to all of you, and value your contribution to a great extent. We hope that you will keep supporting Cross of the Dutchman, and keep spreading the word about this truly epic project!

Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to leave a comment, or send us a message!

      Right now, the soundtrack is part of the $100 reward package, but we have been playing with the idea of creating another reward between $25 and $50, however with the recent addition of the $15 reward, we're curious to see what responses we get :-)

      I don't suppose it'd be feasible to create a new tier between the $25 and $50 tiers that provided a copy of the soundtrack?

      Hey Dennis! Even though the story of Pier is Frisian, and it's true that most of our current backers are dutch, I do think that the story of our game is universal, and will appeal to an international audience. This is tough to convey since it's not yet possible to play the game, but know that we've always put gameplay first, and we would not have it any other way!

      the main issue here is the target audience and its ability to back this project. This is a typical Frisian story, so i doubt it will gain much momentum out side the Netherlands, i certainly hope so, but doubt so. SO that leaves us with us Dutchmen. Who are not used to credit cards and many Dutchmen don't have it. the few that do there are a small number that actually have an amazon thingy. And of those they need to know KS and of those, you need backers. So its quite a small pond you are fishing in.

      Awesome update! I'm sure that the new reward tiers will attract a lot more people
