3,724 backers pledged $158,152 to help bring this project to life.

3 Hours - We will make it!

3 hours left and roughly $15K to go - we are so close to the goal, and you can feel the excitement and energy as we get closer.  So many of you are doing your part, tweeting, FB'ing, getting a hold of the media, supporting the game.  And your efforts are very appreciated.  Our backers are now 3200+ strong and we have made up so much ground in the past few days that I have no doubt that this is going to happen.  We just have to push for a few more hours and get this thing done.

Matt Keil from G4TV has posted on his website and said very kind things about the game.  Victor Lucas from Electric Playground has been spreading the word.  We've been fighting for media attention the entire campaign and through your efforts, we are getting heard.

That is no small accomplishment.  With this kind of loyalty, dedication, passion and hard work, we will make it!

Thank you,

Garry

      @Noe: send them a message (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/732317316/starlight-inceptiontm/messages/new…) and I'm sure they'd be happy to sort it out. :)

      Congratulations to Escape Hatch and all the other backers for snatching victory just before the end! Thanks to the other projects that cross-pollinated, too; I was already a backer of most. I really wasn't expecting this to succeed, but a series of the right things happening gave it the boost it needed and deserved, yay!

      Congrats to Escape Hatch!

      Wow, I wasn't expecting this to make it as of 3 hours ago. Congratulations. Gives me hope for the Republique kickstarter, too.

      Crap... I upped my pledge without upping my "reward" selection. Is there anyway to get that corrected?

      Man, the graph of funding over time has got to be a hockey stick graph. I was in a funk most of the day thinking that this wasn't going to make it. I looked at the 2 hour mark and thought "Meh. It's hopeless."

      Congrats Garry! I can't wait for August!

    11. Noe Ridgway on May 8, 2012

      It's awesome that we seem to be speeding up even AFTER the goal is met :)

      Congratulations Garry, I cannot imagine what that felt like to have your supporters push like that to get the job done. I don`t know if you drink, but I`m having a beer for you. This is the closest Kickstarter I have seen. Great stuff. Now make a game with the same passion your fans just showed you :)

    16. Ismail Said on May 8, 2012

      I still raised my pledge again in excitement. Congrats again. This one came down to the wire and I view my increased pledge as my entertainment for the evening, like going to a movie :).

      4310 dolars left 107 dollars per minute COME ON GUYS LETS DO THIS!

    38. Bogdan Radu on May 8, 2012

      Apparently if you add $15 to any pledge you'd get both versions, you just have to specify by sending them a PM (from the $45 tier notes)

    39. Noe Ridgway on May 8, 2012

      Ish - if you up it by 15 and send them a message, they will give you both versions.

    40. Ismail Said on May 8, 2012

      I'm about to raise my pledge again, but it's not clear if I still would get both versions of the game on Vita and PC. I'm at $45.

    41. John Machete on May 8, 2012

      Just put in $75, not really interested in the game but I really hate to see a game fail when it's at 95%...good luck guy, less than 6k to go with 45min on the clock

    42. Noe Ridgway on May 8, 2012

      I'm really hoping some semi-rich guy happens upon this and decides to be a hero.
