New reward! and a new video...

Hi everybody!

The Kickstarter is almost over! We're frantically watching the counter go down. It's almost unbearable.

But in the meantime, we're announcing a new reward for every single backer level. The following video explains what this reward consists of:

We hope you like it! See you Monday!

      I know I'm ridiculously late on this, but that video was fantastic. If I could hug it, I would.

      That's good to hear. Sooner the better ^^

      @Casey Borders
      No, they specifically mentioned the delay will be until October (and the the Beta version got pushed back further). With that in mind, the complaint is a valid one. Whether if a company is big or small, new or old it is very irresponsible to get people to fund their company under false pretences. Also you mentioned, "the logistics of getting all the required information from Kickstarter and getting it out to everyone who backed at the proper levels is going to take some time." That is also not a valid excuse. That type of problem was a foreseeable issue and should have been handled accordingly. The company had plenty of chance to notify backers of the delay in delivery before the kickstarter was over.

      With that said, I still support Sauropod and hope for the best. The lengthy rebuttal was primarily due to Casey Borders passing judgement on others for the complaint.

      I'd be happy just getting access to a daily snapshot - it's unity, perhaps a webpage with the web-player for now?

      They said that we might be getting the prototype in early/mid September. If I understand their post correctly, then they are going have some form of public release in October. Like I said, I may be wrong about this but in my opinion the possibility of getting the game in September as opposed to October is a great bonus. Also, soon after could mean any time within a week. Its been three days, give them a chance to recover from all the legal stress that they had to go through to even get this Kickstarter set up.

    6. Casey Borders on August 29, 2012

      Wow! You're complaining that because it's been three days? I'm very excited to get to play with the prototype but the logistics of getting all the required information from Kickstarter and getting it out to everyone who backed at the proper levels is going to take some time.

      I'm happy that this game did well, but disappointed at the delay for the prototype. When the rewards states "get the original PROTOTYPE soon after the Kickstarter is over" it is safe to assume the developers have the prototype ready and have a delivery system ready too. I don't mind the funding kickstarter, but I think the devs should have told us earlier in an update (where it emails the individuals who have funded) that the prototype will be delayed. At this point the incentive of donating $25 is far less appealing than $30 or $15. I personally would have switched to the $30 or the $15 and wait for beta if I had known the prototype was delayed. However, with that said I hope for the best for Sauropod and I am glad I've participated in the kickstarter.

      everyone, we won't be getting the prototype for a while now. It could be a month or so until we do. Don't think that it'll come out tomorrow. Check their previous posts.

    11. Tyler Fenby on August 27, 2012

      So when do we get the prototype? ;)

      I can't wait for the release of the prototype! *virtual hug!*

    14. Matthew Cooper on August 27, 2012

      Liked the video. Hey, is there anyway you guys could go ahead and release a prototype? I understand you may not want to send it out multiple times to save bandwidth, but since you did overreach the goal by quite a bit, I think it would be appreciated if you went ahead and released a prototype today, and then perhaps one update a couple of weeks from now. I'm just really looking forward to your game and I would enjoy anything I can get my hands on so much. Thanks! :)

    16. Michael Johansson on August 27, 2012

      i love this, but will you be able to ship a hug with.. lets say.. a pigeon or other feathered members of the Aves class? maybe even by some form of mythical creature such as: a dragon, a loch ness monster? i'm awaiting your reply and can't wait to get my hug!

      This video was reward enough. Shared it with a bunch of friends, so they'll know you're cool for your next project that needs backing.

    30. Larissa Reynolds on August 26, 2012

      I love hugs, but... So far away! It will be years before I can claim my hug! Do they expire? O.o
