Update #5

The Final Countdown

It's less than 24 hours until the end of our Kickstarter campaign, and we're rapidly approaching $3,000,000.  This is cause for celebration!  Please join us tomorrow as we count down the final minutes until we embark on this crazy adventure.  It all begins at 3:00 pm PDT right here:

http://www.ustream.tv/channel/double-fine-adventure

To those of you who have backed the project, thank you so much!  We'll see you soon on the backer forums! 

To those of you who haven't yet backed the project, there's still time!  Many of these rewards will only be made available to backers, so act now if you don't want to miss out.  We've been hearing from a lot of folks that would like to back the project, but are unable to do so because they are outside of the US and do not have a credit card.  Well, here's Tim Schafer to the rescue with information on how to obtain a pre-paid credit card to back the project:

An important detail-in order for your payment to go through with a pre-paid credit card, you must add $1 more to the card than you are pledging.  More details can be found here:  http://www.tinyurl.com/NoCreditAdventure

And if we could make one last request, please do not refresh the Kickstarter page in the final minutes, as we don't want to break Kickstarter again during this high traffic time.  Plus, the party is going to be over on Ustream!  

SEE YOU TOMORROW!!!!!!

      Awesome! All the Dutch ppl should defo back this because of this clip. It gave me, and will give me on repeat viewings, more entertainment for my backing-buck than many a movie or game. Fun, just good oldfashioned fun.

      In Portugal we use MBnet ( https://www.mbnet.pt/servlet/pvtn ) to create prepaid-virtual-cards. It's pretty much the same as Ukash, I guess.
      One just has to be careful with paypal. If you add and remove many cards to your account, you'll be locked out of it. You've been warned.
