Shirts and Stuff

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.

      The fact that you guys got Terrence Lee to do the soundtrack seals the deal for me. He is one of my favorite chip tune-esque artists. If he does the same style as last time, I will be sure to buy it.

      My girlfriend and I just pledged $100. She gets the shirt and I get the boxed copy. I am clearly the winner here.

      OK OK, you got more of my money! My heart was broken when my official Full Throttle t-shirt was ruined. I miss it dearly. Managed my pledge to be In for $100! 8)

      @Dain: The fact that they will poll for sizes does not mean they will have all sizes available. I would want XXXL. Some people might want XXXXXL. It would be nice to know what the available sizes are before backing at a level that includes a T-Shirt.

      30 hours to go and that $500 tier is teasing me ... still teasing me... At just under 100 backers would make this book pretty damn exclusive (unless they decide to release it in another form). Surely Double Fine wouldn't be so evil.

      ... still teasing me...

      Any chance of having a no-text option on the shirt?

      I really wish I had the kind of money to give a decent backing on an awesome project like this. Double Fine has made some really awesome games and the adventure game genre is arguably one of my favourite. It kinda sucks for us poorer folks, but I guess there isn't a whole lot I can do about that. I MAY change it from $15 to $30, but I'll have to go through my bank account and see what's going to come out around this time. Sorry Tim, I love what you guys are doing, I just can't afford to give more (and I'd love that DVD...)...

      Creator Richard "AvatarIII" Barclay on March 12, 2012

      $110 is about £70, that's really good value for what that £70 gets you, digital copy and a hard copy of both game (£20) and documentary (£10), digital copies of the adventure book (£5) and soundtrack (£5), a t-shirt (£20) a poster (£10), and a mention in the credits (priceless)

      Creator Wracky on March 12, 2012

      Don't forget: You're not buying a product here. You're backing the project! And as a REWARD you get a little something extra (which in this case, includes the product aswel) Don't value the reward tiers as you would value products. Just see if you feel you want to back this game a little more, and in return, get a nice reward.

    23. Thumb.small

      Creator infestor on March 11, 2012

      it's around 50-60 $ in denmark, for newly released games.

      Creator Thomas Ryan on March 11, 2012

      I just upgraded from $15 to $110 (international postage). Way to run a campaign and make people NEED the old school box, tee and all the other goodies! Seriously can't wait... Thanks for letting me be a part of gaming history :D

      Creator Johan Lord on March 11, 2012

      Market prices here in Sweden, for a brand new ps3-game anyway, are about $80 and now you still get the game, and a whole lot more, for $60, so I think the rewards are accurate. It's all digital though so I can see what everybody mean but think about where the prices are for new full games on PSN, and then you ONLY get the game. Maybe a tshirt for the $60 backers would be in order but otherwise I think they're totally right.

    26. Morpha.small

      Creator Dan Murphy on March 11, 2012

      Actually the prices are exactly right for the Australian Market. Brand new disk release games are between $70-$100. Collectors editions are around $120.

    27. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Chris Groves on March 11, 2012

      I agree man, I would definitely pledge the 60 bucks to get the the box :D

    28. Missing_small

      Creator Paul van Bruggen on March 11, 2012

      It would be really nice and a good idea (IMO) to include the cardboard box in the $60 reward. $60 is the sweet spot (the cost of a regular game) but very few people have pledged $60 for its lacklustre rewards. Including the box (but not the t-shirt or the poster) would increase pledges by a lot (30 times more people pledged $30 and, even more remarkably, 10 times more people pledged $100, so if only 25% of people increased their pledge to $60 this would increase total pledges by almost $200,000. Even if a few people would decrease their pledge from $100 the total increase will be huge).

      Creator Paul Smout on March 11, 2012

      Just a tip for everyone who has upped their pledge, make sure that you have upped the reward that you're claiming.
      Look for the green "You selected" marker. If its not next to the reward that you think you're getting, change it with the blue "Manage your Pledge" button.

      Creator Jonathan Casper on March 10, 2012

      Just throwing this out there - if you really want to break people's spirits, consider adding in a few extra toys for the boxed version. Like the stuff Infocom used to do: (cardboard) peril sensitive sunglasses, microscopic space fleet in a bag, etc. Nothing that's going to raise the cost significantly, but fun for flavor.

    32. Missing_small

      Creator Thomas Herold on March 10, 2012

      I and others that pledged at the start ,but were too cheap or couldn't afford a $100 pledge, would still like a T-shit. Couldn't you just write,with indelible marker, CHEAP above the word BACKER and allow us to purchase one ?

      sergio 30,000 shirts coast alot more to make then 10,000 shirts
      as well as the fact that a shirt with a logo and text on the back tend to sell for around 20-40 dollers ading this to the lower ter means less money gose to the game.

      every reward that is not directly the game takes money away from the project
      i still would have donated 100 for just the game in a box with the documantary.

      @Sergio Probably because they didn't have shipping items on those tiers and if they added t-shirt people needed to add extra for international shipment and stuff.
