Update #4

Shirts and Stuff

1 like

With only four days left until the end of the Double Fine Adventure Kickstarter Campaign, we bring you Mr. Tim Schafer himself for some very important announcements:

Or maybe you don't have time for all this video nonsense.  In that case, let me break it down for you using three cute little bullet points:

•  The Collector's Edition will be packaged in a cardboard box reminiscent of the old school games we all know and love.  It will be awesome.

•  Mr. Schafer himself will be signing all of the Double Fine Adventure books.  He'll also gently caress all of their bindings.  I mean, if you're into it.

•  We've added a fancy new shirt to the $100 tier so you may show the world how amazing you are.  Check it out!:

All of these fabulous rewards will only be made available to backers, so get them while you can!  

We love you!  Like, too much.

      I hate you! (I don't, really.) I can't believe you've convinced me to spend over 6.66666666666..... times more than I originally planned to (I've got the $10 shipping). It's just too good to resist.

      Actually, it's not. Your video updates definitely did most of the work. You guys are clever.

      God thing this is over in 3 days. It's expensive to upgrade my backing every time a new update comes out.

      I was on the fence about whether or not to jump from my old contribution (of $30), but when I saw this update, I jumped up to the $100 tier without a moment's hesitation.

      uh.. not that im against t-shirts or any other group but... well... wouldnt a "Backer" be a gay male variant of a "slapper"? or would that strictly be a "bummer"?

    10. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Sergio Castaneda on March 9, 2012

      Why not add the t-shirt to the $30 or $60 tier? We're all backers and everyone on the higher tiers would still benefit from the added reward.

      Thanks for teasing me completely by showing the actual boxes of BOTH Grim Fandango and Day of the Tentacle... I can't get hold of either very easily, but want them both badly.

      After this, a digitally distributed re-release/remake for both of those games needs to be done... Surely that isn't too expensive?

      Oh, sh*t, now I have to upgrade my pledge... :-/ You know, some of us are from poorer countries and 100 dollars is A LOT of money, you might think you're being nice, but I think you're just cruel. WHY TIM, WHY????? XD

      Wow, cool, a free t-shirt! I really can't wait to try that sucker on. And only because you guys had absolutely no reason whatsoever other than the goodness of your hearts to provide it as a reward. Thank you so much Tim Schafer, Ron Gilbert, and Double Fine for this boosted bonus.

      I donated $100 before these rewards were announced. Now with all the rewards you get; it's no longer a donation. All this stuff is actually worth $100 for people who love adventure games.

      Are the T-shirts gonna be one-size-fits-all or will we be contacted for our shirt size?

      Creator Ryan Voots on March 9, 2012

      Hearing more about the box really makes me wonder about upping my backing to the box. It's been a very very long time since I've seen a game have a box that was more than just a thing thing of cardboard for putting a disk in. Also I'd like to be sure that the T-Shirt comes in something OTHER than a ladies cut. Doesn't have to be men's cut but just something other than ladies.

      Would love it if the T-shirt had some more 'information' on it in relation to Kickstarter.

      And another color but maybe thats me. :)

      All I remember from the past 30 days is the frenetic pushing of an F5-button while constantly battling my relentless urge to throw more hard-earned money at this project.

      It's been a weird month. But in a good way.
