Corrections to last post "Surveys and Getting the Game"

Amazon Payment Kickstarter Backers - We apologize as made an error in the last post and have discovered that we can in fact get your survey data anytime. So now we will wait until at least 90% of you Alpha or greater Amazon backers have completed the survey and begin collecting and bringing your data into our system and then sending out emails with a registration key and instructions on how to register and download the game.

 We are processing a lot of data and will get you all up and running as soon as possible! And for now we ask that you please do not email us as answering thousands 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!

You stay cool! The Fun Pimps

      I don't see how we're being "punished" by having to wait a little bit..
      (especially since its still the 16th in Dallas, Texas..)

      Anyway the ESTIMATED date for release was 16th, and the general estimate was august..

      As long as it comes out in august, it should be okey with people,
      although I'm also eager to play it, if they need more time to release it to us..
      We'll just have to deal with it..

      @Sol Brooks, make sure you send them an email with that cause that may be what is happening to the others that aren't filling out there surveys.

      People need to calm down and relax. All we can do is hope everyone fills out their surveys and wait. The Fun Pimps group are doing the best they can to get everything ready for us and send us out our keys. Ive been in the game industry for a while now and I know how much work is involved to get a game out to the masses. Whining and complaining isnt going to help one way or another. I've been waiting just like everyone else and another few hours or even days isnt going to kill me. It will all be worth it once everything is up and running. So until then, learn to be patient.

      I don't think some of you realize that they need to wait till they have the full 90% of backers info from the surveys. If they just started sending out emails now and the others end up never sending their surveys back, The Fun Pimps could get screwed out of some money by people who's payments never go through.

    8. Ronny Bangsund on

      They've got over 10000 survey responses to go through. If I understood the explanation from other campaigns correctly, they get a big chunk of tabulated data and have to actually filter through that one way or another. Kickstarter's system doesn't automate everything, so they have to filter out the roughly 3000 people who aren't getting alpha version, generate keys, possibly prepare a system on the website for said keys, and preferably test it before the masses are let in.

      I'm glad I'm not running something like this.

      Eh, why don't we just call 75% good enough? The other 25% can wait till there is 100% submissions.

      still dont know why we are being punished for others idocy.

    11. Paul Marks on

      Amazon Payment Kickstarter Backers - Everyone who backed the game by Amazon payments with an Alpha pledge of $35 or more should have received a survey email last night. We sent them out and have received responses by about 75% of you on every pledge tier. So now we will wait until at least 90% of you Alpha or greater

    12. Andrew Thompson on

      i think it wrong and unfair of them to make those who have been waiting 4eva and have full out the survy to wait 4 those who havnt fulld out the survy for whateva reason

      @aaron i have really been watching it today, i knew the alpha would not get to me yesterday. They say 500 keys have already been released. i did not get one yet and i pledged when there was only 1200 dollars funded. I filled my survey out quickly so I know i had to be one of the first ones.it is a good thing though to release in groups because if you have 25000 people trying to dl thats where you will run into problems. I know I was giving the fun pimps some crap earlier but i think they are some smart people and are doing everything they can to make the alpha release as smooth as possible

      yes cameron its still pending on mine as well. I think if you got your survey though you are good. Could someone please confirm that if you know the answer

    27. Cameron Reading on

      Well i'm just worried the payment didn't get through because its still saying pending on my side

      I wish we could filter these comments by age. I guarantee every person having a schizophrenic panic attack still lives with their parents.

      We will all get to play soon enough. All will be good

      Brad Timms on

      so if you recieved your survey that means amazon got your payment correct?

    31. Payden K. Pringle on

      @Fredrik, Maybe you need to stop being temperamental?

      It's an indie game. I expect problems. Maybe they want to be fair. It's their game. Yes we are backers, but the pledge stuff is effectively a donation and we are to trust that they will not betray that donation.

      That is the nature of kickstarter.

      .................. I must say the way you handled this is not what I expected.. Why not send out the email to the poeple who were quick? All you do is torture your own backers who REALLY want to play, the ones that sent back the email quick..

      Maybe you should think twice before you buy this game

      why havnt i got the game yet :(

    41. Henrik Danielsson on

      @Joel Pålsson Because Kickstarter locks the Home page once the counter goes to 0. No campaign can edit them after being completed.

    42. Avery Byington on

      submit your survey so we can play the game already!!!

      Update: They aren't at 75% anymore, they're at 85% [Roughly] 5% more people to fill out the survey... C'mon guys fill them out! The rate at which the surveys are being submitted... I think we will get our keys tomorrow or in around 3 - 5 hours from now. Sorry guys but we all have to wait on behalf of the others... I am also waiting for my alpha key but rushing won't do any good, we need to actually tell the people who haven't submitted their surveys "Hey dude submit your survey so we can play the game already!!!" That's what is needed. Hopefully fairly soon is when we get our alpha keys, I've waited since I woke up, at 60% 12:53PM EDT and now at 6:56 PM It's only at 80 - 85% [Ratio] So yea, we have some more waiting.

      Playing Dead Rising 2 To pass the time, be patient guys they will send the keys when they can.

      @Samy Boumaza, we all have to wait until they get roughly 90% of the surveys they sent via e-mail to everyone get turned in before they'll start sending keys, cmon people! Turn in those surveys!

    47. Joel Pålsson on

      Why does it say that 500,000+ have been pledged but the last stretch-goal is still locked?!
