    Everything above and you get the dev-friend's kit! As such, we'll give you some insider sweet digital content that will remain otherwise unreleased... stuff the developers play with, and the general public never sees, but since you were so generous we'll let you in on our secrets!

    For starters, you'll receive a series of costume and design variants for Pisces in-game that we've been testing out. These are developer-only pieces of art, but we'll let you choose which one's you want to dress Pisces up in for yourself.

    Then, there's two unlocked regions in the game that include additional mysteries to Atlantis. You'll also receive a test-vehicle we were playing with early on in development, something called the "cliff-hanger." It's sort of like a snow-mobile, but grips to the sides of cliffs with some anti-gravity gecko technology (or something...)!

    You'll also receive 3 test weapons that do some crazy things. They're a bit over-the-top, but since we're the developers, sometimes we need kill-switches to manipulate the gameplay during testing... and these weapons are our answer. We'll open these up to you to play with.

    You are a funding god. For your belief in our project, we've got some special stuff for you.

    First, everything above. Plus there's a series of statues around Atlantis. Beneath the feet of each, there is a plaque that refers to the founders of Atlantis. Your name, and a description of yourself (or whatever you want to write, so long as it is appropriate and relavant!) up to 512 characters will be on one of these plaques. You can write a poem, offer a personal bio, write a proposal to your loved one... whatever you want and it will go on that plaque (again... you must keep it G-rated.)

    In addition you will get Pisces in plush form. Even better she is based on an adorable chibi style. One of our artists created the style of this Pisces and she is yours to squeeze.

    Madness. Pure madness for helping us so much. But thank you!

    So everything above and...

    If you know the story of Pisces (from Greek mythology) you're aware that the story involved not one, but two fish/gods! You'll be able to play as either Pisces... or her sister. Ha! You didn't see that one coming! This character is usually not playable, but you'll get to choose which one to play with (though, really, you should play through the game a few times, so why not try both?)

    Additionally, you'll get a very special, cast-foam Pisces-version of a ship's figurehead for you to hang on your generous, philanthropic walls! Made to look like a distressed, weather-worn, hand-carved wooden figure, this thing will awesome in anyone's nautically-themed space. Or living room. Whichever.

    And just for fun, we'll name a fish after you... a real fish at company's headquarters (we have a fish tank)! We'll take a picture and post it up on our site for you to see... and give you updates on the fish. What type of fish? A pretty little clown fish.
