Update #11

We’ve reached our first Kickstarter goal!

Howdy Survivalist’ 

This is a special announcement!” 

Today thanks to the pledges of our fantastic fans, the hard work of our team, our families and our friends in the media we’ve reached our first initial 200k goal on Kickstarter. Folks we still have 9 days left and we’ve got some fantastic stretch goals with some great features. Let’s keep it rockin! 

After 21 days we’re still number #1 of 1,410 games on Steam Greenlight with nearly 70 thousand Yes votes! 

 Our good friend rhinoCrunch has posted the first video of a 7 part series covering our game. The first is very entertaining and well be doing an MP one next with him.

Check it out now funk soul brother The Fun Pimps !

      Laughed quite a lot at Rhino's vision and commentary of the game. Bought my son a copy of the game. Great job!

      Rhino is probably the worst commentator to cover this game imo. Frankie and Psi did great jobs.

      Rhino and Frankie both did a wonderful job of showing off the game. I pledge 35$.

      May be users who might be interested in looking at this if you want more advertising. They may not be major YouTube celebrities, but Beef has nearly 600k subs, NL 200k and RockLee only about 33k, but the latter two specifically look at indie games which means their subscribers are interested in indie games. Plus, they have friends who like to play indie games and that's nothing to sneeze at. YouTuber networking can do some amazing things.

      I've got to agree with the comments about rhinoCrunch, ended up getting a Few copies thanks to De4dCert and Frankie, looking forward to testing. Looks like its going to put my Rust experiences to shame, Congrats on hitting the target.

      Love the update, However I have to 100% agree with Casey and Michael... Rhino is a bad idea.

    15. Missing_small

      Creator Harrison Burke on August 7, 2013

      I was very worried that it might not make it. Now I hope that it hits at least the $250K mark. Expanded world and more items/weapons are the top of my excitement list. Keep it up!

      Creator Casey Vaa on August 6, 2013

      Congrats TFP, so excited to finally get my hands on this game! Unfortunately though I must agree with Michael Lowe (who commented below). Everyone has a right to an opinion, Rhinocrunch just takes his right way too far. If this game takes one small wrong turn he will bash the game, the makers and anyone else involved. Now constructive criticism is always good but what Rhinocrunch does is not that. Be wary TFP

    17. Missing_small

      Creator Michael Lowe on August 6, 2013

      You know RhinoCrunch will bad mouth you the first time he sees something he doesn't like. Look what he said about DayZ.

      Creator Avalonerkey on August 6, 2013

      How many yes votes do you have to get on STEAM to be allowed on there? Seems ridiculus that you even need more then 70k. Many more obuscure games would not stand a chance at passing that. At anyrate glad this is going to get funded, really looking forward to it.

      Creator Greg "Scorpio" Myers on August 6, 2013

      Congrats on the funding Pimps! I hope by the end you guys end up at least doubling your goal. A bigger and better game is always a good thing.

      Hmmm. DayZ+Minecraft+Rust+Tower Defense? This game just jumped to the top of my most anticipated list. This game looks AWESOME!! Want it. Need it. Gotta have it. Can't wait till i get access to the alpha.... well there goes my social life.

      Creator Eddy on August 6, 2013

      it's funny. i want this to end as soon as possible so i can start playing, yet i want it to go on longer to make sure it gets all stretch goals. just upgraded to get the alpha. cant wait!!

      @chase you could be right but from what I have heard there will be multiplayer but no player hosted servers. That was from a dev don't remember which one though.

      Thank God Frankie showed me this game. I am so excited for it to come out! Keep up the good work "The Fun Pimps!"

      Creator Raven Blackheart on August 6, 2013

      I blame Frankie for this, I never thought I would pay for something like this but if what he showed on youtube is correct, this is the game I have been waiting for since season 1 of The Walking Dead. I even bought a new video card just to make sure I had the power to play this. My only regret is I only had 35 dollars to spend. If possible I will be sending another 35 next month. good luck guys

      After the Kickstarter you should keep working towards the stretch goals, with a humble bundle like approach. Just like a lot of other Kickstarters, Castle Story for example. (http://castlestory.net/)

      CONGRATULATIONS!!

      You probably already know this, but the guys over at 5 Lives Studios (Satellite Reign game) just gave a shout out to your project. Hopefully a few of the backers from that game can pledge for this project too.

      Turns out that one of you gave one of them their first real gaming industry job... Small world huh.
      :P

      P.S This game STILL gives me a Postal 2 kinda vibe... I really don't know why??
      (Not that I'm complaining though, LOVED Postal 2).
