Revised Stretch Goals & More!

Posted by Alasdair Beckett-King (Creator)

Happy £11K everyone! 

In this update I'm going to outline the Revised Stretch Goals. But first... 

Pitch En Français & Español

Thanks to Words of Magic the pitch video has been subtitled in French and Spanish. Please help Nelly go global by sharing the video:

A Note to Mac and Linux Users

Please remember that our original goal of £15,000 includes a Wine-wrapped version of the game. This will give you a chance to play the game on your operating system, whether or not we reach that stretch goal!

New Tier Added!

We've added a limited edition all-digital tier called Digital Drunkard at £175. Appear in the game as a drunk pirate, in a state of inebriation ranging from snoozing to comatose!

Revised Stretch Goals

We've been listening to your thoughts about our Stretch Goals, and we've done a bit of tweaking and jiggery-pokery to make the important things more achievable. Some people have asked why the costs for translation and porting have to be so high. The fact is they're not really very high compared to similar games. We can't afford to skimp on these costs, because we don't want to promise something we can't deliver. And bear in mind that between a quarter and a third of pledges goes on rewards, bonuses and Kickstarter fees!

We think these goals strike a really good balance between ambition and practicality. Please help us climb our way towards them!

      dakn my poor knowledge in I reproduce the subtitles in the youtube video?

      Nice job on the French subtitles, Words of Magic. I hadn't noticed how fast Alasdair was speaking, I had trouble keeping up with the text (but maybe that's because I just woke up) :P And reading the jokes in a different language was like hearing them for the first time again :)
      While I'm here, I don't know if YT subs can be edited easily, but you had a little typo on "exentrique".

      The new stretch goals look interesting, but I hope we can get to all cutscenes!

      Awesome stretch goals! I hope we reach them all. :)
