Dev Update 1: Funded! PayPal Update, Fan Art Contest Winners, and Future Plans
The campaign is finally over and we’re funded! Thanks so much to all of you for supporting us throughout this amazing month. We can’t wait to get ourselves back to development so we can have some more game stuff to show off as soon as possible.
Before we can get to that, though, we have a lot of work to do in regards to making sure that all of our post-campaign stuff is in order.
PayPal and Console Add-ons
A lot of you have asked us about being able to add one or two $5 console ports to your pledge. We can't do that anymore here on Kickstarter, but we've set up a page for this purpose via Paypal.
This post-Kickstarter add-on will be open until Saturday, May 31st!
You'll be asked for your Kickstarter Transaction ID, which you will find in your confirmation email from Amazon Payments. The email's title should read something like “Your Payment to Alonso Martin has succeeded”.
We will use that Transaction ID to link your original Kickstarter pledge with your Paypal operation. Make sure that you input the correct Transaction ID number. Also, remember that you can only pledge for one key for each console (up to three $5 add-ons are valid when your Kickstarter + Paypal pledges are combined).
People that haven’t yet pledged can still do so at:
Pledge Fulfillment and the 3DS Stretch Goal
As with any Kickstarter Campaign, there are some people whose pledge transactions have failed for many given reasons. Remember that you have until this Thursday, May 22 at 11:16PM CST, to resolve any errors if you wish to continue to be a Kickstarter backer for Heart Forth, Alicia.
After that time has passed, Amazon Payments will take up to a week to process all of the confirmed pledges. Once that's happened, we'll be able to tally an accurate amount of our final funds, and added to the funds we have on Paypal by that point, we’ll have a better idea of just how close we are to that 3DS stretch goal.
Right now, we’re standing at about $10,000 in failed/outstanding pledges, but a lot of that might be able to come in before Thursday. We're crossing our fingers.
We're very happy that we were able to reach this stretch goal during our final countdown! It's going to be really exciting to have all these people working with us. We're working on a way to integrate a free digital version of the Remix Album into our existing tiers. We'll let you know more about that once we've worked it out!
