    Congratulations! You like this project, and you're ready to literally do the absolute bare minimum you can to make sure that it will see the light of day! The next step would be doing nothing at all, but that's not you! When you see potential, you recognize it, and are not afraid to take any risk up to (and including!) the cost of half a coffee to support it! The sense of pride and accomplishment you feel at your bold decisions is its own reward!

    I have my reasons.

    All right, now we're talking. You like the project. You like it a lot. But not quite enough to actually pony up the full $30 to purchase it. Some might say that the difference between $12 and $30 is not that great, but not you. You are a person of hard numbers, and harder principles. Having done a rigorous analysis, you've determined that $12 is the precise number you're willing to pledge, and you mean it. NOT A PENNY MORE. And hey, we respect that! Your name will be in the credits as a backer.

    You’ll get the privilege of paying us for testing the game in its raw, barely playable form! The deal of the century, I tells you!

    Yes, yes, a t-shirt and a poster.

    Now sure, SOME might say that we're a game development company. That we don't have the infrastructure and the pipeline to print and ship this stuff all over the world. That this would be a wildly inefficient waste of our time and your money. That it would be a lot faster, easier, and cheaper for you to order them yourself from a company that's actually in the business of making t-shirts and posters. But who cares about any of that? Not you, that's for sure! You want your t-shirt and poster at any cost! Fine… I'll personally order the damn things for you, and ship them to wherever you are. The dev team will even sign the poster.

    Road trip!

    We'll invite you to Russia to hang out with the dev team for a day. Want to shoot the sh… breeze with the brilliant writer who wrote the game's script and came up with these oh-so-hilarious pledge tiers? Here is your chance!

    We'll show you the full meaning of Russian hospitality! Lots of food, homemade moonshine, sauna, beautiful women, naked wrestling with the many bears wandering the streets of our cities, you'll do it all!

    P.S. To head off any awkward misunderstandings, we're kidding about the bear wrestling. Contrary to popular belief, Russians don't actually do that. At least not naked. Well, not fully naked. But the rest is for real. You'll have a good time, we promise. (Travel costs not included.)
