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

      Truthfully,
      If they finish the game at all then we got what we payed for. Some of you are forgetting that kickstarter is about funding projects so they may be completed, it is not a preorder. Any rewards given out are simply a thank you by the company, not a requirement. Stop crying and be happy they are still willing to give you whiny, ungrateful babies anything at all.
      I believe it was August 2013 delivery. Deal with it.

      Seriously pimps, i guarantee half the people here bought the game because you promised to release the game TODAY! So please save yourself from turning into warz devs v2 and get us what we promised, otherwise you're going to have an angry community on your hands.

      Are the programs compatible or usable for the data table KS exports? Like I said, they will release the keys when they are ready, does this make you sad :( call amazon and go get a game from steam if you want it ASAP

    7. Anthony Muscara on

      @Andrew Schnepp: they make programs for that...

      I have a void, FILL IT!... Fill it now!, do it, comemon... do it now. Now, now,.... and now... 1..2...3...4...5.... refresh.. damn it.. now. curse you Fun Pimps... this is unbearable... What am I going to tell my children?

      @Andrew : Exactly! If they were to release the game right now, without fixing the few bugs known left, or doing whatever than what if it crashed every 10 seconds? They would have to take the time to go back, edit the game, and for you to REDOWNLOAD it... Please stop arguing over why they're taking time... it takes time to do things, even to complain just play a small but fun flash game in the meanwhile and check your emails every 15 - 30 minutes and please be respectful to everyone in the comment section.

      This is not stalling, use your brain. If they start rolling out keys then receive more surveys they will start to confuse data. Who got it, who didn't, who needs multiple keys, etc. And lets us not forget this is ALPHA do you honestly think sending keys AND dealing with in game complaints are going to be effective or intelligent for them to do all at once, there trying not to bite off more then they can chew...

      @Anthony : What do you mean "hard or to post 65% done?" I am saying that in the past 2 hours from 60% it's guarenteed that they've reached OVER 65% they are still going to release the game at 90%... Most likely they have around 75% right now or so. Please note these percantages ARE estimated by ME... Given the ratio of time it took to reach 60% and the amount of HOURS these are or at least SHOULD BE accurate...

      Liam, check the top of your Kickstarter page and see if you have a banner about needing information.

      @Nick : I found where it shows the estimated delivery date, but I'd like to write a more detailed way since your way confused me :p |

      Ok, so on this page, OR the home, there's the list of amounts of pledges with rewards, you MUST log into your kickstarter account, and you HAVE TO BE A BACKER... now that you're logged in and know that you've backed the project... look at the list of amounts you may pledge with rewards, find the amount you pledged and the pack you chose for example the $35 Sunrise survivalist which is what I chose, you should see "you selected" in green, than under the details of stuff you get, there should be an "estimated delivery"... under that it will say "Survey Sent" then the date which you have sent the survey. Congrats now you know if your survey went through!

      Waiting for an abnormally high statistic to be met before releasing the game sounds like stalling. True, you might be trying to be fair and give people a chance to receive it with everyone else. If more time is needed before servers and such are ready, I would rather be told the truth then wait for the minority. Either way, I will give you the benefit of the doubt.

    22. Jalister on

      By the way TFP, glad you found the answer.

    23. Jalister on

      How about this idea. Set a time that the surveys will be processed, regardless of whether the 90% has been reached or not. Process all the surveys that were turned in. Then wait 72 hours to process any new surveys that were turned in after the deadline. This should appease the backers that rushed to turn in their surveys quickly because they wanted the game quickly, and it will prevent you from having to process the surveys on a lot of small chunks.

      @Andrew Stanford

      You have been calling them swindlers and con artists on every comment section.

      If you are that displeased call amazon and decline payment.

      You obviously do not understand how this works...

      @Nick Murphy "Look at your pledge on the side of this page" Do you mean Left hand, Right hand, bottom or top? I am looking for mine but I do know I filled out the survey but I also want to check if it went through because I am also waiting for the alpha :3

    28. Missing avatar

      Benjamin Cortes on

      @Anthony Muscara : An update every hour on percentage would consume time that they could use to prepare the alpha keys, or fix up the last things they're fixing with the game before release or whatever it is they're doing... They even said "Do not email us as this consumes time that can be used to get the alpha keys out" this counts as an email but not to them, to us... They most likely will do an update, and they already have done one THEY'RE AT 60%... this was about 2 hours ago so most likely around 65% - 75% now... possibly more.

      @Jeremy Odell If you don't know if your survey went through look at your plege on the side of this page. It will say that you've selected that specific one, and underneath the "Estimated delivery" note should be another note saying "Survey sent: 08/15/13 • Your response" If you see that then you have successfully sent in your survey. Just make sure it's correct with no typos.

    30. TrowbridgeHD on

      Could you possibly tell us what percent the surveys completed are at now? And a estimate of how long before we all get to play this game:D

    31. Daniel Newby on

      Here impatient folk, this is what I'm passing the time with.

      Update every hour on what % we are at? Give's us an idea on how long we are gonna wait?

      Benjamin Cortes on

      @The Inner Geek Hey, I know it seems like it might take forever, which there is a chance of but most likely not, they wouldn't wait until September to release alpha... if only 80% out of 90% filled out the survey I am 100% sure that they wouldn't wait over 3 days for the other 10%... They were and are given enough time to fill it out but it's their fault for not checking their emails, or whatever they did wrong... Plus they could always get it later on, there are other methods of acquiring the game such as sending your transaction ID to them, and saying you didn't get the alpha or something along those lines...

    34. Bill Briggs on

      While I would love to have the game for this weekend (and, hey, it's still only noon CDST), they didn't say that we would have it on the 16th, just that they would try to get it to us on the 16th.
      And those of us who were day one or two backers . . . we have to wait as well. The delivery for Alpha says "Aug 2013" and there are still 15.5 days left in August for The Fun Pimps.

      If the truth had been said about waiting for 90% they never would have met their target so quickly, I think they call it paying lip service.
      Oh yes you can have the game the same time as pre orders but then oh we have your money so here is the truth.

      Yeah because that's better waiting until 90% how arrogant can you get, let the minority screw the majority.

    37. Andrew Pyhtila on

      Awesome. You guys are awesome! Cant wait!

    38. Sergio Xisto on

      Thanks for the update. These impatient people are making me laugh, seriously go and do something else until your email with reg key arrives. Time will seem to pass faster and there are so many other good games to play I'm the meantime.

    39. The Inner Geek on

      Um... this is worse. Now you know how to get our info, but just don't want to? Can we at least say 90% or a certain date is reached? I don't want to chance sitting at 89% till September.

    40. Christoffer on

      Sorry for tripplepost, but from experience I have sometimes plegded for something and completely forgot about it. Then not checked my mail until a long time after the campaign was over.

      Great News Guys! Thank you for the Update, I'm sure it will all get worked out in time.

      Agreed ! I could care less since I'm at work but why should the people that promptly responded to the survey have to wait! Plus less of a load on the pimps to do 65% now and the other 25% later.

      Great info guys and keep it up! While I am impatient and want it now, especially after spending hours watching the rhinoCRUNCH vids, I am waiting patiently. Having played WarZ (now Infestation) and DayZ among others, I am eagerly awaiting another zombie/suvival/horror/FPS game.

      Benjamin Cortes on

      Everyone please be patient, hopefully the emails will be sent out today [most likely] but if not, it's NOT their fault... as they said 60% out of 90% already have filled out their surveys. This was only in around 12 hours so it won't be much longer until we get to 90% Just wait a little longer instead of complaining, it's GOING to be released very very soon but just not right now.

    46. Neil Kerkhoven on

      Everyone has to be patient, they aren't scamming you guys or anything and the survey asks for addressing information because it is standard procedure. Just be patient and give the small amount of people working around the clock at The Fun Pimps to do what they need to do and your time will come.
