WE'RE FUNDED! PC & Mac Stretch Goals!
We did it! At 8:35PM last Thursday, as I stood outside the pub on the phone to my girlfriend, the £5,000 goal was broken and FIST OF AWESOME became fully funded!
LOOK AT MY HAPPY FACE!
Thank you all so so much for helping make this time-travelling bear-punching lumberjack-loving adventure reality. Your support means the world to me, and seeing the excitement FIST OF AWESOME generates makes me happier than you'll ever know.
We now find ourselves in the enviable situation of being able to consider stretch goals. The original £5,000 was always intended to cover completion of the iOS and Android versions, so any extra money will go towards versions for other platforms.
£7,000 - The FIST OF AWESOME you know and love but running on your shiny PC or Mac!
£12,000 - FIST OF AWESOME: GRIZZLY EDITION. A specially tailored and extended version for PC and Mac (and possibly OUYA, please see below). One of the most exciting features being local multiplayer with new playable characters from Tim's family!
How can I get the PC & Mac versions?
I've added a £10 tier which includes DRM-free copies of the PC & Mac versions (regular or GRIZZLY). The reward is automatically included in all higher tiers, including the £15 soundtrack tier.
Please note the release date for the PC and Mac version will be a few months after the iOS and Android versions.
A lot of you have contacted me hoping for an OUYA release of FIST OF AWESOME. If you'd like to see it happen PLEASE RETWEET THIS TWEET:
The OUYA guys are giving away 10 developer kits to projects that get their attention, and I'd very much like FIST OF AWESOME to be one of those projects.
If I get a developer kit I'll use the PC & Mac build as a base for the OUYA version.
My aim is that everyone from the £10 tier up would get a free copy of the game for OUYA, although that's dependant on gifting being supported in the OUYA eco-system.
The campaign for an extra $500 from the guys at Magic Pixel Games is almost over. As I write we're only a few votes behind first place and if everyone who gets this mail votes for us it'll push us into the lead!
Thank you once again for backing FIST OF AWESOME, the unbridled success we've had is entirely down to you. I am very very humbled by the passion shown for this project and promise I will do everything I can to meet the very high expectations you have.
Lots and lots and lots of love,
P.S. I'm a sucker for all things retro, so I'd like you know about another Kickstarter project I backed, The History of Ocean Software:
Chris Wilkins is compiling the ultimate biography of the Ocean Software and it's within a beard whisker's length of being funded! Please check it out.
