Here come the forums!

Heart Forth, Alicia — Official Forum
Heart Forth, Alicia — Official Forum

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Today we’d like to introduce you to a brand new forum to interact with us throughout the development process. Head on over and check it out!:

Heart Forth, Alicia’s official forum

Right now, you should be able to see the public section of the forum, which contains boards for general HFA discussion, off-topic discussion, and a section to document and carry out community contests and public livestream events. For some of you, though, there are a couple of private sections dedicated exclusively to your tier level.

Private Backer Access

One of those sections is for people who pledged at the Private Demo Tier ($50), where you'll eventually get access to the demo when it comes out. We'll be able talk about it then, but we can meanwhile chat about anything you want to know about the game in the private section, or in the private livestreams we'll bring to you to show you how the game is moving along!

The other section is for people who pledged at the Elite Backer Tier ($150) and above. In here you'll be able to get your hands on all of the game's alphas and help us out by giving feedback and reporting issues, along with contributing with any ideas you might have that we could pick up and use in the final game! There are also several boards for us to discuss the particulars of the game's mechanics (such as the game's world, enemies, spells, accessories and more). You'll get access to the Private Demo boards as well.

If you are a $50 tier backer or above, head over to the forums and: 

  • 1. Register your username 
  • 2. Go to the link below to request group permissions and select your respective Membergroup. You'll be asked for your Kickstarter email/nickname, or your Paypal email/transaction ID. After you have provided the necessary information, we should have you approved shortly.

Request HFA Board Group Permissions 

Please don’t request group membership if your pledge doesn’t entitle you access to one of the private groups. Membership requests must be processed manually, and making us pore over more requests than we need to will just take time away from everything else we have to do.

Contests

We will soon organize a new set of contests for you to be able to have some fun with us while we livestream again, as well as getting the chance to win some special prizes, including access to the private sections of the forums!

Funding Update

Small update now that the final day for changes pledges has passed: we received a total of ~$229,000 from the Kickstarter campaign! This means that nearly 99% of you came through with your pledges (compared to a failure rate generally between 2-3% for most Kickstarters), and we couldn't be happier. Along with the ~4k we've collected via PayPal, we're just north of $10,000 short of our 3DS stretch goal, and we promise we'll do everything we can over the next couple months to hit that goal.

      Ah, apologies for that, some permission settings were set wrong! You should now be able to post replies :)
      @Breno Yeah, if we make it to the 3DS goal, we'll add it as an add-on for all the people that pledged during the campaign.

      If you can manage the 3DS port, will it be a $5 add on too?

    5. Alzorath on May 27, 2014

      Hmm... doesn't seem like I have permissions to post/reply (even as a demo level backer)

      @Richard You need to be registered and logged in to reach the group permissions page. Have you made a username and were you logged in when you went to the linked page?
