I'm a backer too, I won't get the Linux version nor the boxed version. But I really don't blame you.
Gamers are over-spoiled these days. We get thousands of games for almost nothing. This is "indiepocalypse", tons of games are released every day and very few devs can actually make a living out of it.
I'm already happy I can play it through Wine on my Linux box. I'm so sorry this went so bad for you.
Thanks for this great game & for the update.
To be honest I am very disappointed that the boxed version of the game that I paid for will not be delivered as promised.
I was really looking forward to it and like another comment poster here I feel a little betrayed about paying for it..
At least you let us know you don't intend to ever deliver it, and also offered us something for our significant boxed version investment. So thank you for that.
I did enjoy the digital version of the game on my AmigaOne X1000 system, and I am glad to get to play the game as it was intended. Thank you for making it happen.
If I'd say that I'm not disappointed (just short of begin pissed pretty much), I'd lie. One good thing about this is that you didn't just walk away without telling your backers, the ones who made this possible game in the first place, why this ends the way it does.
As far as I see it, the 50k were never enough for the game and the physical rewards, which makes me believe that this whole thing was bound to happen this way and no other.
Regarding the 11 bit Studio games ... I will not do anything to them. You have the Kickstarter rewards and the mail addresses, so this should be something that happens "automatically" for the users! Otherwise f*ck this!
At least one good thing you can pride yourself with. After this Kickstarter campaign going south, I'll never ever give any money to any other Kickstarter and I hope many others will do the same.
And to end this ... I hope your personal situation will improve and you will succeed.
Damned, I only participated because of a boxed Amiga version:-( :-( :-( I wait and wait. I don't bother anyone with my impatience. And now this... A shame! I feel sorry for your personal situation, but the project was funded properly and I additional paid for the box.
I can't fight feeling betrayed.
