      ...if he's gonna work on it :D I guess most of us, who have read his whole, know there's a real chance this kickstarter won't get finished in time (if ever :p)
      There's even a possibility Robert became either enlightened or crazy on his meditation retreat and forgot about this project :d, or he hasn't found what he was looking for yet and will stay there longer, I wonder when we will hear from him again :)

    2. Backer on

      One of the first updates might be about where he's going to work on the game whether it's the van he said he's gonna buy or somewhere else.

      "See you in 10 days!"

      Very exciting! I feel as though bob is the kind of person who will keep us posted... considering he did a live webcam stream.

      I guess we will see though! The mention of many updates does sound promising.

    4. Backer on

      @DeafTard: He did update us and thanked everybody. You need to pay more attention, dude.

      @Gran PC: That surprise pledge Bob is taking about; must have come from a great man. ;) It kept the Bob's Game dream going and hopefully it will become a reality someday.

      To other backers, it should be clear that Bob has a big vision for this game and if he's going to get close to achieving it, he's going to need plenty of time so let's give him that like we gave him our support. We're talking months of solo game development here. It's not a cakewalk.

    5. Gran PC on

      He updated his website 1 hour ago:

      > The Kickstarter worked, thanks to a surprise donation.
      > I have many updates to post, but right now I am on my way to the meditation retreat. Upon further research it sounds very intense and I'm not sure I will last the whole time, but I'll try my best. Maybe I will become enlightened! Maybe I will become brainwashed! Maybe it's the same thing! See you in 10 days!

      I also emailed him and he confirmed Kickstarter had sent the funds :)

      Bob wrote when the project got funded

      Thank you to everyone who pledged, you are all fantastic and I couldn't be more grateful for the opportunity to continue working on this game. For those who are wondering, it made it on the last day thanks to a very generous backer who has been following the project from the beginning.

    7. DeafTard on

      I agree, I have never seen a kickstarter project that didn't send out an update or confirmation that the game has been funded or thanking the backers as well. So yeah, this is pretty much the 1st project without an update after the project ends on kickstarter.

      Hopefully it means Bob is getting things situated and getting to work on the game. He will chime in eventually.

    9. Chaonic on

      To be honest, a few days ago, I was certain, this project would be dumped, but I am happily surprised, it ended well now!
      Can't wait for the release.
      And please, pleaaase bring it to Steam =)
      This will:
      1. Give it some security with copying the game
      2. You could add Trading cards, so you get some money from people, who already bought the game.
      3. People will buy the game BECAUSE of the trading cards
      4. More people will buy it after discovering, how great it is.

      If you put it on Greenlight with the Demoversion, you will certainly reach the goal fast :3

    10. DeafTard on

      Looking forward to actually playing bobs game for the first time ever!

    11. Robert B. Healy III on

      Congratulations on meeting the goal, you guys! Been following this game from the beginning. Proud to be a part of the legend with you. :D

    12. Stan64 on

      Aww yeah! I played both demos back in the day but just recently completed the second demo after the kickstarter went up. Now I'm looking forward to the real deal!

    13. Tcrew on

      YOU DID IT!~~~~~~~ this is one of the most surprising finishes in KS history XD a big hi five to the mystery backer

    14. Cam Fivattew on

      Hooray! Congratulations Bob!

      This is amazing, we did it! Congrats everyone, especially the generous last hour backer!
      We should’ve known, this game indeed is unstoppable! :D
      It’s all up to you now Bob. Go for it, we believe in you!

      Congrats here too bob. Look forward to finally getting to play your game. Also thanks to the generous backer...Way to go! :)

      Oh no, I just helped fund bob's game. ;)

    20. Dylan Kirkpatrick on

      I had a feeling who the savior was! Very interested to see what happens next.

      Please don't let us down BOB!

    21. PZT on

      To the benevolent backer who saved the KS last minute, thank you so much for giving Bob a chance to fulfill his destiny and giving us a chance to play his game. We couldn't do it without you. And to Bob, good luck, I hope you change the industry for good.

    22. Massimiliano Luisi on

      Need to wait till December than.

    23. Ian on

      I had lost hope on this. I checked yesterday and we were languishing around $4,000, so I was surprised to see my phone light up just now saying it was funded. Congrats Bob. It has been a long time coming, but you can finally finish this game and get it out. Good luck!

      Nice! It really happened :)) Congrats Robert!

      And thank you very much some kind person who pledged like half of the goal. :)

    25. Backer on

      And it's FUNDED!! Congrats, Bob! :D

    26. Martijn Ham on

      That explains the jump to 10k$. Congrats on making it man! Hope you get to build a good hacker van.

    28. Backer on

      You do know Kickstarter and Amazon take a percentage of the pledged money, don't you? Why would he pay $5500 only to have a big percentage of it taken by them... -_-

    29. Martijn Ham on

      Either someone got really generous or bob decided to take on the extra 5500$ that was missing himself? Wat

      I've seen the reports of "bob's game" on Youtube a couple of years ago. Wasn't realising this when I clicked the kickstarter link and read your story. I checked out your website and here is what I want you to know:

      It seems you are hurting a lot with your unsuccesful dreams and ideas, but I love the fact that you try to come to yourself, your parents and how you realise God is bigger than all this. Please use this little bit of cash and use it for the real thing you set out to finish. Make your dent on our society and make the world a better place. You are a good storyteller and after reading your life story on your website for 3 hours I must say that succes depends on the way you value it.

      God bless you and please don't do any more drugs..

    31. DeafTard on

      Been following this bob game for SO long and I'm glad to back this cause this game is going to be legendary.

    32. Ricardo Benitez on

      Bob, your story has moved me enough to pledge the little bit I have to your project. Your story gives me hope and determination to start my own game, so hopefully the generosity will return to me as it has to you. Good luck and I am PROUD to be one of the backers of your project!

    33. Kurt K

      The only thing I can think of the 500 or more is really a bit over 6000, unless someone upped their 20 tier. I hope it is legit, and if it is you have proof of guardian angels. Might want to add one to the game, near the end. Seems fitting.

      Congratulations Bob on making your goal. I can't wait to see the game.

    35. PZT on

      I've been following your game since it was first announced, I even made your forum one of my old website's affiliates. You can do it, Bob. You can change the world. We all want to discover the secrets of Bob's Game. Don't give up. Believe in yourself. YOU WILL FINISH.
      P.S. I really want to play your game and I hope my $20 helps you. Good luck! I hope we get a link to that backer forum soon, can't wait to see what you're up to!

      I was hoping for a miracle and it seems like it has happened. Whoever you are, thank you!! I hope this is legit too.

      Wish it would happen - probably wont

      But i hope this isnt the last we hear about bob and bobs game

    41. Alisson A. Tres on

      I’ve been enthusiastic for this game since it was announced back in 2008. I was really impressed with how much you done by yourself on your DS game.
      I always liked its retro graphics and really enjoyed the writing from the dialogs that could be seen in the demo and in the early trailers for the game. I even still have the Demo 1+2 on my computer since it was released back then and I remember having a great time playing it.
      Through the years, once in a while I’d remember about the game and would take a peek to see if there was any progress on it.
      I’ve read through your story and it was a good read. You’ve went through a lot during your life and there are many things which I can relate to.
      Although I still believe this Kickstarter really could’ve used a little more thought, I think this is definitely worth $20 bucks. Regardless of whether this Kickstarter is successful or not, I hope someday, somehow, we can get to play Bob’s Game.
      I wish you best regards, Bob!

    42. Backer on

      If every backer paid $60, the game would've been funded by now and then some. Unfortunately, asking for $20 only didn't do the Kickstarter any favor. It seems like you are not in it for the money Bob, but sadly many backers didn't realize they needed to pay more to successfully fund this project they wanted to support.

    43. Tcrew on

      a "single programer" sold me instantly maybe more updates would help but its a bit late now x,x

    44. Kurt K

      You know if you added just a little merchandise as suggested, relaunched the campaign with a goal of $4000, you would be a successfully funded campaign and that alone would draw in more funds.

    45. Angelo J. Marin on

      C'mon don't give up you could always find a "regular" job and spend almost all your freetime in this project! I hope that your dream will come true :)

      Honestly, I haven't followed your story, and have just learned about it now, but damn, we need someone as passionate as you. I only recently got into the gaming scene, and your story is inspiring. Take my $20.

      Even if the kickstarter fails, I wouldn't be surprised if bob works on it here and there and when he can, eventually release it. I'll still drop of $20 on it....whenever that is bob. :)

      Giving the amount of time he spent on it, it would be a shame not to finish it.

    48. Backer on

      I don't blame Bob for not feeling comfortable asking for more than $20 for his game. We are so used to video game Kickstarters asking a lot of money from backers that we forget they are asking for hundreds of dollars for just a game. The Kickstarter can still succeed. If only it would be featured on a couple of popular websites like Kotaku and Joystiq.

    49. Casey Ardrey on

      "the campaign itself doesn't make a difference"

      That's really sad to hear and not true in the least :( Sad to see the Kickstarter fail, hopefully it'll still be released through other means though!
