Thank you so much & the important next steps!

Posted by The Fun Pimps Entertainment LLC (Creator)

Thank you Survivalist’

You’ve all given us so much and have exceeding our wildest expectations reaching our top stretch goal breaking 500k on Kickstarter in the last minutes. The whole team thanks you and is grateful for the opportunity you have given us, blessing us with the chance to make “Our Dream Game,” “Your dream Game.”

We have already worked around the clock to promote this game and create a build we are proud of and a registration, downloading system we hope can accommodate over 25 thousand users. But our work is not done.

We still need to collect all our backers information and get it into our databases so we can get you your user Keys. On or before midnight US Central time you will receive a Kickstarter survey please fill it out promptly, thoroughly and accurately as a simple email typo, wrong name or address can prevent us from getting you the game. And if you bought one of the Alpha packs please know your friend’s emails and names as this can prevent us from getting you the game. If you overfunded $70 and want 2 Alpha copies please include that in the survey.

And for now we ask that you please do not email us as answering hundreds of additional emails will prevent us from getting you the game. We ask you to be patient a little longer as we get you the game in the coming hours or days!

And for those of you who have asked our PayPal Buy page will be back up soon and stay up after Alpha release for everyone to still buy the pledges they want including Alpha.

Checking out now... funk soul Brothers!

The tired but still fun Pimps

      "We have identified an error in our account registration process and sent you 2 keys by accident.
      We ask you to only use the first key you received and delete the 2nd key you received as this one will be disabled in our system.

      We apologize for the confusion and hope you are enjoying the 7 Days to Die Alpha"

      I am, actually :)

      Question: I got another e-mail with another key just now, and since I only bought Sunrise Survivalist I'm a bit confused - is the alpha, beta and retail a separate key? Did I get someone else's key by accident? Is it some sort of voodoo magic?

    3. Mild on

      Question: What consisted of the survey?

      I do not believe that I have received it.
      Yet both my amazon account & KS accounts are linked to the correct email.

      Please may someone elaborate on this.,, ?

      I screwed up with the e-mail address i sent a message with the correct address how long will it delay me from getting the game?

    5. Aydin Karasapan on

      Look, everybody calm down, I'm sure these guys have lost many a nights sleep trying to get this game to you on time, so keep calm and game on. (other games I mean)

    7. Perry on

      Be nice if you were more pacific than couple hours OR days, I mean it's one or the other. If you're waiting for a third just say and be honest.

    8. Ryan j. Burke on

      I think Midnightish? We'll have to see, Will i get an email from Kickstarters or the devs though?

    10. Mateusz Reglinski on

      Was there any info on when we get to donwload the alpha? 1 day 2-3 ?

      Oh wow these developers deserve a way better community. If you have never kickstarted before do not bitch that you don't have your download and if you have you should know better.

      $500,000 I did not think you'd get that far but it just snowballed at the end you guys really deserve it can't wait to play the game and see how it evolves.

      I have not gotten my Sunrise survivalist yet should it have come

    14. Luke Blumer on

      Did the same as you Noah K, I only put in my pledge of the $35 instead of "The sunrise survivalist". I guess we'll have to wait and see... :(

      I'm afraid I mIght have made a big mistake... Instead of putting THE SUNRISE SURVIVALIST, I put in $35.00 for the package... Will they still give me my stuff? Or will they take that as a donation with no reward???

      So I bought the Alpha Clan package and thought I might save the 3 extra copies up till christmas so I'd have gifts for a few friends ... can I just get the 4 keys to my own email adress and give them out later or do they have to be registered now with the appropriate emails?

    17. Henrik Danielsson on

      @Michael Highfill, the survey was by no means late. Other projects have taken days or weeks to send them out for some of their pledge levels. They've most likely got thousands of things to do before they can even begin sending keys out, so why bother collecting addresses. Logistics take time, electronical or physical.

    18. Wiggy on

      I gotta go to work in 2 hours and 20 minutes, i don't finish until 9 p.m, but im safe in the knowledge i have something to look forward to over the weekend. :) I've spent the last three weekends drinking out on the town and now that im short on cash this is exactly what i need.
      Patience is a virtue.

      Ugh. I don't know if I messed it up for me but I entered my package incorrectly instead of the "THE SUNRISE SURVIVALIST" ..Was really tired at the time.. Hope this doesn't cause issues.

    22. Michael Highfill on

      Seems the lot of you have missed my point. I'm confident in the ability of the Fun Pimps to send out their alpha codes on time.....what I was addressing, specifically, was the time it took for the kickstarter survey/poll to be sent. Also I am standing by with Paddles to revive Trevor Green! Happy gaming everyone.

      When I bought the Alpha buddies I have to fill in the names and email adresses of two friends in the survey, but of course I want to have this game too. So do I have to fill in my name and email adress as a buddy to receive a key of 7 days to die, or do I get at least 2 keys for my friends and one for me?

      i only bought the 35$ does that mean i need to give my name and address
      please can someone tell me soon :P

      lol @ the idiots just hanging around waiting for a download link to appear in your inbox...GO TO SLEEP OR GO OUT SIDE OR DO SOME WORK!!

      lol, it is early hours in the morning for these guys so don't expect anything for a good few hours!

      lol i bet when i do gt it the download page is gonna crash from all the traffic

    27. Toxic on

      I feel like a lot of people are not actually reading anything they are telling us, read the post/your e-mail again and you will see them saying this: "We ask you to be patient a little longer as we get you the game in the coming hours or days!" nowhere did they ever say the game will be released at 12:01 am
      They need to collect the data from the surveys, add them to the database and then the system has to slowly send out the keys. Like it said, it can take a few days. It is not the end of the world.

    28. TanC on

      @Michael Considering that they're in (I'm assuming) Dallas I think it might be much later for them when they sent out the surveys; not sure what the time difference is for them. Consider that they've been working throughout this Kickstarter, I think they deserve a rest too? And I'm sure time is important for everyone too.

      @Dylan since I just saw your message 30 minutes later I'm assuming the window to change your details are gone now. Only way to change your address is to send an email to The Fun Pimps.

      just done survey cant wait

    30. dylan cole on

      how do i change the address cause i put the wrong counrty?

    31. Trevor A Green on

      11:45 pm, filled out my survey at dinner, 15 more minutes until I pop a case of redbull and start rockin the refresh button on my email. Hopefully I'll be downloaded and get to run it before my heart explodes.

    32. Michael Highfill on

      Not expecting instant, but if you factor in that it was nearly 11am when this was all taken into consideration, and I did not get a response until 7:30 PM on a Thursday Night (-8 GMT), for 13K+backers....also taking into consideration that some bottle glass 80 year old was not individually sending personal email to all 13K + people, then yes the email was LATE. Fun Pimps should have gotten a better response from kickstarter and the people DONATING their money. I'm still working.....and I imagine quite a lot of you are.....time is very important to me.

      i understand how people are so excited about this project i am to but be patient it is not instant if it were we would have it already and im super excited for it but we have to wait it already said delivery date august 16th its not here yet if anything i should be annoyed cause here in Australia its already august 16th so you guys just sit down and wait and stop raging the comments

      danny ward on

      Yeah, seriously people these things aren't instant and if you could imagine for just one second how quickly they got this game to the point it is now and imagine what it will be when their vision of finished gets here....I think the entire team has deserved a night of party then rest then they can get the game to their many fans who have so gratefully donated money, I mean seriously it's not like their greedy people who just forget us instantly and we shouldn't be that way either so please just be patient for them and reason to have an anxiety attack and waste the money in the first place. Good night all and happy gaming when it gets here I am looking forward to stalking and killing you all as much as I am looking forward to teaming with some of you. If anyone is interested in joining up with me and a few others send me a PM or shoot me an email @

    35. Ryan j. Burke on

      Relax every one the game is coming we got the survey early. Just chill the game is comming. Stop clicking the refresh button on your email. Its comming. And then we can all play. There is an old saying watched water never boils.

    36. Peter Tweed on

      @Jared Shafto Calm down. They will get it to you. They just got the project funded and they can not get the game out instantly. Be patient.

      @jared if you did even a little bit of reading you would know that even this would take time so just wait you will have it in a few days vs paying less and getting it like next year or never

      Jared Shafto on

      Well then this was a waste of money i paid for the alpha not to wait for it

    39. TanC on

      wow you guys really need to calm down. watch other kickstarters and see what really goes on. this isn't a preorder system, people. it's a donation. it's going to take a while till the game comes out and you can't even wait for a day for the alpha?

    40. tyler larsen on

    44. Aydin Karasapan on

      @Daniel, it says delivery date for alpha is August 2013

    45. Stevan Sugars on

      Wait, what? From the gist of the email sent out, I was under the impression that once we filled out the survey, we'd be able to hit the Alpha shortly after...

      Received my email and follow it to complete the survey and it says "Whoops! The page could not be found. Try giving it another chance below"

      Guys seriously chill out. I'm a backer of Star Citizen and alpha is still months away. Just. Be. Patient.
