      @Paul: Yep, we've been working on things along those lines with Steam and Humble, and those will come to fruition before the end of the campaign but not immediately for reasons I can't control. So big "fingers crossed" on that.

      TLF is actually on Steam sale right now already, though, with a recent update to it and posts on its announcements page about this kickstarter. AI War has similar posts on it, but it's not been on sale yet because I was still talking with Valve about a variety of options.

      @Simon: Yep, that was an email out to all the forum members. That actually had a far smaller spike than I had hoped it would, but it was something we did in the first 3ish days. I think that the bulk of the forumites either already knew about the game or else use spam-catching emails or whatnot. Or just weren't interested. :)

      @James: The [redacted] stuff is a bit of a running joke on the forums, and something Jack and I have in particular taken some glee in messing with people with. It's also been a really good way of censoring myself from saying TOO much, because long-timers know they are able to get increasing amounts out of me by just continuing to ask questions, since I get so excited about things. :)

      It's really nice for me right now to have TWO projects that I'm excited about, because it means my identity isn't completely wrapped up in either one of them. That tends to be really helpful for me from an emotional standpoint, I've found in the past. Otherwise the "One True Game" that I'm working on can start feeling like any criticism of it is an indictment of me as a person instead. It's an easy trap to fall into, but somehow having two projects in some form of progress lets me retain a healthier distance while still being close to both.

      A [Redacted] comment? What is this, The Foundation?

      :)

      I enjoy the concept of reverse AI War.
      I think this KS is in very capable hands, I have faith we'll make it :)

      Chris, I'm not sure why I got one but the email you sent out regarding AI Wars II was what brought it to my attention that the kickstarter happened. Another atypical spike could by sending a similar email to the forum memebers if you haven't yet.

      I think you made a really good point in a previous update - Steam has your customer list and you don't.

      The one thing you could do is toss your Steam games on Sale - have a wish list email sent out and then have an update pointing them towards this KS. Maybe you already did that? But that's for wishlisters versus actual customers, still might be something.

      Either way - best of luck, keep the dream alive.
