    5. Creator Cpl Ledanek on July 18, 2012

      good catch zeep

    6. Creator zeep on July 17, 2012

      I'm just commenting to make the total amount -not- 666.

    7. Creator Cpl Ledanek on July 12, 2012

      was discussed Jesse... can't confirm yet

    8. Creator Jesse Saikkonen on July 11, 2012

      Did you guys try teaming up with AMD or NVIDIA? mentions in their twitter could have very well get the funding.

    9. Creator Cpl Ledanek on July 9, 2012

      please visit Official Website for further updates

    10. Creator Enonymous on July 9, 2012

      sad the game didnt make it. I was really looking forward to this one. Please update people using kickstarter so we know when/where to buy this wicked game when its finished! Great job again guys and sorry it didnt reach the goal.

    11. Creator Chris Norulak on July 8, 2012

      Well least it ended at a cool number - who else can say their project received the same numbers for all digits on the amount pledged?

    12. Creator ThomasN on July 8, 2012

      At least this helped to gain interested people. Please inform them via this Kickstarter's Mail-System how they can still preorder the game

    13. Creator Joel Segerbäck on July 7, 2012

      Yeah, sad it didn't get funded, like Gregory I hope you'll still give us updates here if the game has found other means of getting finished!

    14. Creator 'Yngvald' aka HannesFury on July 7, 2012

      damn shame! But instead, let's look at it this way: we'll all be so much happier when this project finally reaches a sulotion for funding the development, because it WILL happen, this idea is too good and too genuine to not finally sail home. Godspeed!

    15. Creator Arvid Haglund on July 7, 2012

      So sad to see that 'we' didn't reach the goal, hopefully this'll work out some other way though, cause in my eyes this has shown a lot of promise.

    16. Creator Rolland Grayhek on July 7, 2012

      Read the latest post as you are in talks to have game published by unkown could this be a Publisher like Bohemia being people have stated the game footage reminded them of Arma? I really want this game to get made and sad the project didnt hit goal.

    17. Creator Greg "Scorpio" Myers on July 7, 2012

      Sorry to see you guys didn't make your goal. Please keep us posted here if you can on any future plans for the game. Good luck to you!

    18. Creator Jedra7609 [Angry Imp Games] on July 7, 2012

      Sorry it didn't work out - it looked really good. I hope you manage to get backing somewhere else. Also, if you set it up with some kind of founders program then let us know as you can still have my money!

    19. Creator Brandon on July 6, 2012

      So whats next....Don't let this be the end!!!! I have waited a looooong (too long) time for you guys to do this. All of us guys from Fort Chaos =FC= support you.

    20. Creator Nick on July 6, 2012

      I am so sad this didn't happen, I'm a huge fan of realistic stealth style gameplay, so this fabulous looking game is right up my alley.

      Now this might be a stupid question, but can y'all try again? If you can I would like to help as much as possible. Being a quadriplegic I couldn't really do the leg work =)
      But I'm decent at editing videos (you can check some of my work and I would be honored to put together some type of promotional video or really ANYTHING. I'd love to help.

      Also I agree with some of the comments people are leaving having to do with the pledging. I think putting an individual price on each of the products available (game, soundtrack, field manual etc..) and different types of payment options is a great idea. I just really hope this game takes off, I haven't been this gung-ho about a military game in a LONG time... and that's almost the only genre I play.
      Y'all got a life long backer in me.

    21. Creator Michael Sly on July 6, 2012

      wow... $111,111 I think this game was going to be lucky... :(

    22. Creator bmt22033 on July 6, 2012

      No matter how BFS decides to proceed, I'll gladly give them my money to help bring this game to fruition. I'd be curious to know what the demographics are of the people who pledged to support this game. I'll be 40 this year and while I admit that CoD / BF can be mindless fun, GB represents what I think of when I recall "real" tactical FPS games.

    23. Creator John Gregory on July 6, 2012

      Yes, I for one am still willing to help however needed. You have a base of backers now, sure most are willing to still help, so please keep your head up and eyes forward. Let us know what to do next.

    24. Creator Ivan on July 6, 2012

      Don't give up Black Foot! You got 1,897 backing you up and we eagerly look forward to helping you launch Ground Branch however you decide to do it.

    25. Creator Oliver Sayers on July 6, 2012

      @ThomasN do not think you can re open

    26. Creator Ben Ireland on July 6, 2012

      It might be disheartening to not get funded, but you've got a genuinely good product here, BFS. I'm sure you'll be able to make it a reality in other ways. Good luck!

    27. Creator Jesse Saikkonen on July 6, 2012

      111111 it's a nice looking ending you gotta admit :D

    28. Creator severide on July 6, 2012

      Hey guys, I actively read the forums, and sometimes post... you have a true supporter in me! I will be following you guys and helping in any way that I can. It doesn't end here! -Jon

    29. Creator Cheznut on July 6, 2012

      And just like that its over hoping blackfoot studios has a hell of a plan B THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN!!

    30. Creator will wabbit hunter (deleted) on July 6, 2012

      @ ricardo oyon rodriguez it's not good you would think fps gamers would jump at the chance to get a game that would be very different from call of duty etc. i know im sick of the copying of nukes and chemical weapons attacks in fps games it's overdone. hopefully ground branch will come out at some point.

    31. Creator Ricardo Oyón Rodríguez on July 6, 2012

      Unbelievable. What happened with players nowadays? How is this possible? I just can not imagine what was wrong, why an adventure from Double Fine does 800% of the pledge and not this title. I just do not understand videogames anymore!

    32. Creator ThomasN on July 6, 2012

      Plan: Re-open, set 100k, get funded, do stuff, open another one (this time with demo.exe), get funded, finish game.

    33. Creator Daniel on July 6, 2012


    34. Creator WhiteKnight77 on July 6, 2012

      I would like to thank all who have pledged for Ground Branch. While it is fairly certain that BFS will not reach it's goal with such short time left, the fact that what was pledged is still amazing to me.
      Please keep in touch at the BlackFoot Studios forums as I am fairly certain that they will still communicate to gamers there.
      Thanks everyone.

    35. Creator John Gregory on July 6, 2012

      I will be watching,
      For the next step, let me know what I can do. Thank you for letting me participate in this KS project.

    36. Creator John Slapper on July 6, 2012

      The lowest pledge amount should've been 25, not 15. Whatever you guys will make it some other way.

    37. Creator Nathan Miller on July 6, 2012

      No way lol! Thats pretty sweet!

    38. Creator ThomasN on July 6, 2012

      For the mother of all salamanders, if you want AN ADDITIONAL competitive shooter happening on the PC in the near future, back Also: It has COOP/1v1/Singleplayer/DOTA-Mode/DRM-Free/easy level editor/makes coffe and brings it to you while you sleep... and drinks it.

    39. Creator Ron on July 6, 2012

      Finally backed the project! Best of luck to you all.

      EBDA andy myself have been waiting for this game since its inception. If this Kickstarter does not go through, I hope a publisher takes notice that we tactical PC gamers are not going away any time soon.

    40. Creator Bobby on July 6, 2012

      I really hope this goes through. Sorry I could only back 15 bucks I wish i could give more but I just don't have the money. I am a big fan of the old ghost recons and rainbow sixes. Good luck. Oh and if the money doesn't go through are you still making it or what. It looks like you guys have gotten far into development.

    41. Creator BlackFoot Studios on July 6, 2012

      @ Cheznut - In hindsight that would have been a good idea, yes.
      @ Nathan - I was born in Youngstown! - John
      @vekoma - That is one option to move forward. Unfortunately it still needs to generate enough money to be able to pay people along the way.

    42. Creator BlackFoot Studios on July 6, 2012

      @ Nick - If anyone is up for it then do it now! :)

    43. Creator nick woodcock on July 6, 2012

      Well if 1882 people have pledged and we need $450,000 thats $240 each. I am up for that. Anyone else?

    44. Creator Cheznut on July 6, 2012

      they should've made a custom pack where you could choose on # of games,soundtracks,field manual,etc and put a price on each item and for the higher items just make them limited or high priced

    45. Creator Nathan Miller on July 6, 2012

      Did not realize you guys were based in Columbus, OH. I'm from Youngstown.

    46. Creator Scott Owen on July 6, 2012

      Quadrupled my pledge to ultra.... good luck you guys. I want it I want it I want it I want it!!! :D

    47. Creator vekoma on July 6, 2012

      I suggest a Minecraft-like approach on funding. Everyone who pledged like $20 minimum will get the alpha build and all the updates. After the funding finished, the price will be like $30 and the game will be purchaseable through your website only. When it reaches beta, $35. Final version for 45$. Further expansions and map packs could be founded via crowdfunding.

      And please move to "Gameplanet Lab", which offers more payment methods. The credit card only thing here is holding me back in funding for several reasons...
