Just a quick update to say we are proud to be joining the Kicking-It-Forward Community.
We are pledging to put at least 5% of our profits back into the Kickstarter Community.
Check here for more details
Great move to show some "indie solidarity"! I hope it earns you some more mentions from other devs, in addition to inXile, sharing Satellite Reign with their fan communities.
PayPal can't be used toward a Kickstarter goal. It would be suicide to open it now. If the KS failed, they'd have to refund all the PayPal monies. After we succeed here, however, it is worth setting up the PayPal, though. The devs should expect ~5-8% of the KS total; it won't get us a stretch goal or anything, but it's definitely worth the effort!
This means a lot for the indie game community and it's backers, thanks 5 Lives Studios
When I consider the kickstarters I've backed so far, the PayPal part has usually been quite low. A couple of thousands sometimes or just below 100.000 for the very big projects.
@Steelwraith: lol seriously? putting paypal up does the exact opposite of making sure this kickstarts.
I'm sure paypal will go up once the kick starter is over, but its only going to hurt pledges if they put it up before they are funded and can actually count on the KS money! :)
Ummm.. maybe you should make sure that this kickstarter actually kickstarts.. as in succeeds? As in GET BLOODY PAYPAL UP ALREADY..
@Mr Propellerhead Doh! :P
That is AWSOME.
You guys are unreal for a Queenslander.
Might want to check your dictionary though - your statement would have more gravitas if "solemnly" were spelled correctly. ;)
Well, might be my memory playing tricks on me (or may be normal rate) but you seem to have gained about 8k pounds since this was put up. Wish I'd see this more often, as I think it is an awesome idea, and can even come back to benefit you in multiple ways. After all, if someone kicking it forward kicked in to something to get their company name in another game... well, that'd both help out the new game and the old, everyone wins!
I sure hope so. This project needs more pledgers! Maybe doing this is summertime was a bit of a miscalculation. This game has an awesome feel and deserves a chance. The market and the gamers need these kind of titles, for the greater good! ;)
Awesome! No doubt Fargo's mention will push this project over the minimum.
