A New Reward and Info on the Boxed Copy

Posted by Gyula Borbely (Creator)

New Reward
$50 - All the tiers above plus an unlock code for a short side story where you can control another character in the game.

A new location with a few additional scenes and 20-30 minutes of extra gameplay with another character in the game. This is just a short addition to the story and you will not miss anything from the main plot as you will still get the result of that character's action if you don't have the unlock code. This is an exclusive offer for our backers.

New Info
The exclusive edition of the boxed game contains:
- game disc
- handbook with a walktrough
- more than 50 encyclopedia cards of the characters, scenes, vehicles, objects etc.

      Got a reminder this was ending and pledged. Just seen this update now and I'm going to cancel my pledge. Exclusive DLC is not something I will support, bye guys!

      Michael, really?? Wow.. I had no idea that there were people out there who could have such enormous bugs up their butts about something like this. Guess it shows how utterly ignorant / naive I am. I'm not a great fan of DLC myself, but I'm not such a vehement enemy of it that I would wish for a project to fail simply for introducing a side quest for higher backers. Gyula, I still wish you all the best but it seems everybody else is right; that in situations like this, the anti-DLC lobby is going to win. Well... "win", anyway. I guess you should probably heed Mr. Hartmann's advice and reverse the decision and apologise - it's probably your only hope to get funded (unless there's going to be an unlikely, sudden uprise in, if not a pro-DLC community, at least an anti-anti-DLC one.. - and WHAT?! How can "uprise" not be in this stupid spell-checker's dictionary?? - and, as I've said in other posts, I don't care what it thinks, I'm not spelling "apologise" with a "z" - note that's "zed", not "zee", so nyer.). *sigh* Anyway... All the best.

      Stu, your DVD analogy doesn't work. We had at least one $70 backer withdrawing his pledge. And João was probably a $150 backer. At least that was the amount lost around the time he announced pulling his pledge. I would probably have raised my pledge to $ 70 eventually to get a boxed version but decided to stay at $ 10 after this DLC/unlockable content was announced. It's not that people weren't willing to pledge more. They just aren't willing to support DLC. And it is not unique to this Kickstarter. Every project that tried to introduce DLC felt a massive backlash. And they all reversed their decision and got funded. HeXit didn't reverse the decision and with less than five days to go, it is not looking good. This clearly hurt the campaign. Just look at the decrease in new backers after the DLC announcement.

      Gyula, I wouldn't take what a lot of these people are saying to heart if I were you. You made it fairly clear that the bonus content was a side story and wouldn't affect their ability to enjoy the main game. I also don't really see the relevance of whether or not this was done at the start of the campaign and many backers actually appreciate being rewarded with backer exclusive rewards (although when it comes to stories I understand the argument that they should be available at some point for anybody to enjoy - as long as they're willing to pay for it). Anyway, I think that this backlash is a bit like people choosing to only pay for a single disc DVD release of a movie and then complaining that they don't have all the bonus features as do the people who paid for the two disc special edition. I wish you all the best and hope that you try again if you don't make your goal this time. Also I'd increase my pledge from $70 to $100 if you made T-shirts available at a $100 tier (international shipping included).. ;-)

      I agree with Chris
      "This isn't good. Anyone who pledges should get the whole game. This is the kind of BS that big companies have been pulling on their players for years and I was really hoping to get away from it with kickstarter."

      Unfortunately, I can't afford the higher pledge right now (or rather, I can't justify spending the extra money at the moment), but I still think this is not a bad idea. Especially if the extra content is still available later, I see absolutely no reason developers shouldn't give a bit of a kickback to those who have generously supported them from the beginning.

      I'm sorry to say, but I disagree with this added content for only a portion of your backers, and as a result I will remove my pledge for this project.
      This kind of practice only serves to fragment your potential client base.
      If you had mentioned this at the start of your campaign, I certainly wouldn't have backed it in the first place, and it's a bit disappointing you decided to do this midway through your campaign.
      I still wish you all the best for your game.

      @Gyula: Thanks for the clarification. As long as others are able to purchase this extra content after the KS campaign ends, then it's all right with me.

      Hello Levi,

      This won't be exclusive to Kickstarter backers but all of the backers even after the Kickstarter campaign has ended. There will be a PayPal backing option on our web page where you can pledge for the rewards afterwards if you have missed the campaign.

      Don't think of this as a punishment it's just a gift for our backers who are puting more effort into helping us to create HeXit. It's an extra, non essential content not some part cut out from the story.

      Best,
      Csaba Horvath

      @Gyula: I highly disagree with backer only content. This punishes those who either didn't hear about the KS in time, are future fans, or don't have the financial means or ability to participate. The other not nearly as bad version is the backer exclusive over a time limit, allowing non-backers to either buy the content or release the content as free at some point in the future.

      The reason I participate in KS projects is to help cause content that would otherwise not be available, not create content that most people can't access. I am hesitant to support projects that provide backer only content, and highly disappointed that projects may add such rewards after the KS start date.

      (I previously posted this to a different project, but it applies here the same.)

      Yeah, I agree with Chris. DLC/unlockable content is a terrible idea.

      I'd like to point out that Chris Skuller has a point. Backer-exclusive DLC is a slippery slope that can bite you in the ass. Tex Murphy tried it and was hit with a massive backlash and decided to put the extra content in the game for everyone. Shadowrun will have an extra mission for backers but will eventually let others get it further down the road. I recommend that you weigh the pros and cons carefully. With that said, I will definitely up my pledged to the $50 tier.

      Chris, this is just a short addition to the story you will not miss anything from the main plot. You can play with another character but if you don't have the unlock code you will still get the result of that character's action. This is an exclusive offer for our backers.

      This isn't good. Anyone who pledges should get the whole game. This is the kind of BS that big companies have been pulling on their players for years and I was really hoping to get away from it with kickstarter.

      Great, I like the new pledge level and have upped my pledge ;)

    17. Gyula Borbely Creator on

      This will be a new location with a few additional scenes and 20-30 minutes of extra gameplay with another character in the game.

      How short will this side story be?
