The Final Countdown

2 likes

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!!!!!!

      No, err. liek when they ask which has more letters, five or seven? I type seven. and entered it,but it said wrong. same for two heads, and don't worry, happy. Basically I keep seeing these 3 but it doesn't work. weird.

    10. Creator calvinbean on March 14, 2012

      I wonder how long this record will stand.

    11. Creator Thomas Schratwieser on March 14, 2012

      Ja, het was erg grappig; ik ben reikhalzend uit naar de spel!

    12. Creator Yaniv L on March 14, 2012

      Congrats! glad you've passed the $3M, keep up the great work!

    13. Creator Michael Lerner on March 14, 2012

      I really REALLY hope these Kickstarter videos are included as a bonus in the Documentary DVD/Blu-Ray. Pure Awesome.

    14. Creator Quinn Palmer on March 14, 2012

      I bet game publishers are feeling pretty stupid right now...

    15. Creator Dennis Polster on March 14, 2012

      "So einfach, dass sogar Frau Antje das hinbekommt"... haha

    16. Creator Bram de Vries on March 14, 2012

      Whaha, priceless! #dutchguy #here

    17. Creator tomasse™ on March 14, 2012

      Congratulations for a victory we had today, to a common enemy, called greedy publishers!

    18. Creator Mikael Olofsson (deleted) on March 14, 2012

      Congratz Tim and please publish a graph over the fundraising in your next update.

    19. Creator Brandon C Laraby on March 13, 2012

      I know I'm crazy late on this, but could you pleeease work in a special Grim Fandango cameo or two? Maybe Glottis and Manny doing a Hula in the background? :D

    20. Creator Jen Key Westling on March 13, 2012

      I'm also excited to have found this project. I have a young son, who is 8, who wants to be a game designer and I hope watching this one will teach him a thing or two about the process!

    21. Creator Jan Ellermeier on March 13, 2012

      Exzellent, das ist ja schon mal ein guter Start :)

    22. Creator MagicSwordKIng on March 13, 2012

      Now work for Daddy!

    23. Creator Berrin Sun on March 13, 2012

      Hi, so the Ustream is awful with my internet connection and well comments are going too fast. Anyway I just wanted to say that I'm glad I found this great project, I'm a beginner level game designer so I hope to learn a lot during this project and I do hope to contribute. Cheers!

    24. Creator Gaston Courtial on March 13, 2012

      I love how in movies there is a good German accent and an evil nazi germane accent

    25. Creator Rahul C on March 13, 2012

      You guys should have definitely played Happy Action Theater during the Ustream cast!

    26. Creator Steve Dufault on March 13, 2012

      If these kind of updates are what I get to look forward to, I'm good. :)

      Oh, and I want a "I pledged for the next Double Fine Adventure and all I got was this stupid T-Shirt" T-Shirt.

    27. Creator Chris Maris on March 13, 2012

      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.

    28. Creator Oleander Scrim on March 13, 2012

      Oh man, I hope the documentary's all like this. xD

    29. Creator Game-O-Gami on March 13, 2012

      Yeah, if the documentary is anything like this, we're in for some good laughs. :D

    30. Creator Benjamin Walter on March 13, 2012

      This Video is awsome. Laughed a lot though. Please do more of this stuff. :D
      Loocking forward for the game making process.

    31. Creator S. van Hengel on March 13, 2012

      Im dutch and i feel offended ....wait what ...the national anthem ??
      Man i'm stoned >-< ... :P

    32. Creator nilamo on March 13, 2012

      I stood up and did my part during the anthem, proudly looking forward to german defeat in Ukraïne/poland 2012 in a couple of months. Paul won't save you guys this time.

    33. Creator Game-O-Gami on March 13, 2012

      All news should go through this kind of translation. :) We'd learn how to cut-to-the-chase in all sorts of languages!

    34. Creator Gilles Paternostre on March 13, 2012

      @Gustavo

      Dat was inderdaad super grappig!!! Nee, ben niet offended ;)

    35. Creator Moeez Siddiqui on March 13, 2012

      And I just learned some German today! Just not of the positive kind where I would shout out ICH BIN DOOF to friends.

    36. Creator Gustavo A Gonzalez on March 13, 2012

      I hope the dutch do not get offended (nor the deutsch) but that was hysterical. Yeah I will probably still be at work at that point being able to watch the final broadcast later would be rad.

    37. Creator Martijn Althuizen on March 13, 2012

      Will the count down party only be streamed live or will it also be available for later viewing?

    38. Creator Heartborne on March 13, 2012

      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.

    39. Creator Chris Merrill on March 13, 2012

      please make more videos. they are really funny!
