30K and more Packs!

Today we reached 30k and I just have to say that we are very honored with your support!   I wanted to take the time out to update in honor of this occasion! 

New Awesome Packs!

Many of you have asked for the PDF of the art book and more of you asked for a way to support the game that would give you digital incentives so you wouldn't have to worry about international shipping. So now you have:

The Digital Pack!  ( 30$ ) This pack includes PREORDER, WALLPAPER and PDF of the ARTBOOK. 

We've  also been asked by a few backers if we would open up a higher tier for pledging since our top tier has been gone for a while. Well a friend of mine recently did an awesome job of Sculpting Wyatt in 3d! Check out Nick's amazing work below:

Nick is a pretty great guy so go check out more of his work here.

Statue Pack! For 350$ you'd get a 5 inch tall statue of Wyatt.  It would also include everything from the 150$ pack.  This means you'll get to name an NPC and get the PREORDER, PINS, KEY CHAIN, SHIRT, ART BOOK w/drawing and Art PRINT (Add $20 for international shipping).

We'd love to offer this one instantly but we need to know if there's enough interest to get them produced. So let us know if you'd back it by taking this poll here:  

If we get enough positive results we'll add the new Pledge Tier.

About Linux

On the Linux front, we have been in contact with a specialist who has been really great help. However we don't have anything for certain to announce until a couple of months. But trust that if we are able to bring Valdis Story to Linux, we will do it!

The Other Guys

I just realized we never introduced the other members of the team that were in our  video. Here's Chiki, Oscar and Gongon (in that order). Unlike them we actually do some work around here.

That's Endless Fluff right there.

Thanks Everyone!

      Why don´t you include some pictures or even a video of your cats as a reward? We are on the Internet, people will probably go crazy for this.

      Agreed on making the OST available, thats a good add-in.

      @Joseph: So much fluff!! Actually the story behind the company name is a funny one. was actually a domain to a web comic we wanted to do a very, very long time ago.
      @Dave: You might have coined a new phrase with "Zoo cute". That's when there are many animals in one picture and at least two of them are belly up? Anubis and Khensu sound like rad names for cats especially because Anubis is a dog headed god. GonGon's full name was Dragunov but try saying that multiple times to call your pet over. So we cut it down and eventually it became what it is. It's actually fitting since he kind of reminds me of the orange dinosaur, Gon!
      @Ian Thanks - it means a lot to hear what you think of us. A friend is helping me with talking to a company. It's a company he has used before and their work is great. We are still not at a number that would justify making them. I'd love to get them made but we have to be careful about our expenses. Also shoot me a line if you know get the company's name (privately of course).
      @Elliot- I'm sorry there's no pins in there. It was a pack especially designed with no shipping costs!
      @Dirk & Sergio- The OST would be a good fit in the digital pack. If I do get that confirmed in time I'd add it. Thanks for the suggestion.

      Nice try. Showing a picture of your lovely cats (awwwww) almost made me go for $30 pledge, but I'm with Dirk, a PDF of the artbook is not enough to justify the extra $20...

    5. Dirk Schlobinski on April 19, 2012

      A $30 tier that includes the artbook as a pdf is nice, but not really tempting me to tripple my pledge.
      Throw in a digital download of the OST and I'll happily do it.

      Cute cats ^^

    6. Elliot Franford (deleted) on April 19, 2012

      I'm a sucker for pins and the $30 doesn't say that it comes with them. Do you get the pins at the $30 mark? If so, I'm totally upping my contribution!

    7. Ian Richard on April 19, 2012

      I've been checking out your website and other games a bit, and have been thinking about raising my pledge anyway, so I'll commit to the statue tier. ^^ You guys are awesome and I'm confident that you'll be able to finish your game. :)

      I'm not sure if I should vote in the poll though, cause I've already made a pledge and I'd just be raising it so I don't want to mess up your calculations if they're based on new backers pledging $350. Also, were you going to use a particular company to produce the statues? I'm asking cause I had a friend who had a bad experience with one particular company and want to save you guys a headache if you happened to be looking at the same one. I'll find out what its name was just in case.

      But yeah, I'll be raising my pledge this weekend, statue or not. :) Good luck!!

      Sorry that should have been soo not zoo, my phone has auto correct lol

    9. ShinKagato on April 19, 2012

      Zoo cute! I have two cats too, Anubis (I know, its a dog headed god lol) who is a white half Persian and Khensu who is a black short hair. ^_^

      ... Crap, they got me : AAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwww <3

    11. TheChosenOne on April 19, 2012

      I'd better keep my pledge a little lower... but I do think the statue looks cool.

    12. Joseph Austin on April 19, 2012

      Kitties :3 I have 2. I see now why you named your company that xD

    13. Seizui on April 19, 2012
