      Is it ok to share the Kochalka Mii characters now? :(

      Honestly, I'm pretty disappointed with how this turned out... Seems more like a website for indie developers in Austin to meet up than a website that promotes and talks about video game culture. It would have been nice to know that "culture" meant to a specific location, across the continent from me. :/

      Just wanna say that I still wear the shirts I got from you and the Octodad guys on a regular basis! (And love the light material you used; same feel as the Double Fine Adventure backer tee.)

      Is there any way I can get another download link for the alpha version of joust? I got the email back when you first made it available for $25 backers but I finally bought some ps moves and now I can't seem to find the email or my old copy of the file.

      Did it mention anywhere in the original pledge that Venus Patrol would be subscription only?

      Must have missed that when handing over my cash.

      Hey... I'm not sure if my package is coming soon, is there any way to find out?

    7. Nicholas Woods on July 27, 2012

      Just received my package in the mail and I've gotta say, everything is spectacular. I think I'm going to get all of the Great Showdowns framed and hung up this coming weekend. Thanks again, Brandon!

    8. Brandon Boyer Creator on July 11, 2012

      Yes! Re: see

      There are a whole MESS of things about to go down.

    9. Jason Castillo on July 11, 2012

      Hey.. its July..
      Is this still a thing?

      an update please

    13. Brandon Boyer Creator on April 17, 2012

      Hey there Buemba -- if you donated at $25 or more, the FEZ EP was one of the first things to go out, alongside the wallpapers/Minecraft skins & Baiyon mix! You should have received two zip files at once. Send an email to if that's not the case and I'll look into it!

      On the Superbrothers game: they've had their hands full for the past couple months readying the just-released PC version of Sworcery, but I'll try and get formal word on when they expect to have something to show. To be honest, it's probably going to be a while yet -- rather than sending out a super rough demo that was put together over 48 hours, they're taking the time to polish up something really special for everyone that backed the project!

    14. Buemba on April 17, 2012

      Is there an ETA on the Superbrothers game and the FEZ soundtrack EP?

    15. Brandon Boyer Creator on April 9, 2012

      Ed: looking into this now! I suspect it was either an email typo or an error with the script -- I'll shoot you a message!

    16. Charlie Gibson on April 9, 2012

      enough for me, thanks Brandon

    17. Ed G on April 8, 2012

      Did this ever get finished? I never got a notice that there were downloads available.

    18. Brandon Boyer Creator on April 6, 2012

      There's not much of an update other than "waist deep working through design/backend stuff at the moment" -- lost a few weeks not just to GDC & SXSW but then a couple more to bronchitis, Sworcery records should be hitting the pressing plant soon -- all the stars are aligning! Will of course do a big blast when there's awesome news to tell.

    19. Charlie Gibson on April 6, 2012

      Do you think we could get an update?

    20. Kjell Håftén on March 31, 2012

      Wondering that myself. Really looking forward to this!

    21. John Elias Brazil How on March 17, 2012

      So what happened to the site?

    22. Brandon Boyer Creator on February 20, 2012

      They both got sorted! This last round of downloads triggered more spam filters than the previous two for some reason.

    23. Andy Baio on February 20, 2012

      James/Kyle: The digital download links to the games were sent out from the email address "" on February 10.

    24. James Boyle on February 20, 2012

      Hey Brandon, great updates on the site... however I haven't received the download links for Capsule etc. Have they been sent out?

      Kyle Hebert on February 11, 2012

      Can someone let me know what email account sends the download links? I always get the updates promising links in my inbox but never get the emails with the links. I assume they're getting caught in my spam filter.

      The update made me really regret not donating to the physical goods level. I hope the FAQ about getting ahold of stuff later applies to that stuff too! If not, shame on me.

    27. Charlie Gibson on February 10, 2012

      Could you perhaps give us an update?

    28. nomad on February 9, 2012

      @MrNohbdy I also have not received the physical gifts yet.

    29. Charlie Gibson on January 27, 2012

      So excited for the next dump

    30. Brandon Boyer Creator on January 19, 2012

      MrNo: update on everything is coming very shortly! Another digital drop is imminent...

      MrNohbdy on January 19, 2012

      Has anyone else not gotten anything yet? I mean i got the downloads, but no physical anything. Just wondering...

    32. Jose Mejia on January 18, 2012

      Anyone want to share their Kochalka 3DS QR codes?

      There's quite a line of anxious youngsters here.

      Give us what we want and we promise our appetite will be quenched until the next full moon.

      Has anyone else got the rewards yet? I'm not being pushy, I just don't want to be left out!

      Victor Breum on October 10, 2011

      Sooo... When are we getting updates on this? I'm happy to help with the project and all, but it would be nice to get some info concerning when we're receiving rewards. I don't want to sound pushy, but I thought we'd at least get an "Yay, I'm glad this was funded!".

    39. rumsoft on October 7, 2011

      Looking forward to a breath of fresh Venusian air.

    40. Chris Ainsworth on October 7, 2011

      Congratulations! The total amount of backers says a lot about your project, let yourself bask in the glow of that for a bit (while sewing yourself a money suit). Looking forward to the launch!

    41. Thom Wong on October 7, 2011

      Double the funding is a testimony to how much people missed you and Offworld. I am so stoked about this I could spit. There! I just did!

    42. Chisaku on October 7, 2011

      Congrats on the funding! <3

      I think you won. Now make an awesome site!

      LehGoooooooo venus patrol! Take my $75 and make something beautiful.

    46. Nicholas Woods on October 7, 2011

      I'm not sure if $105,000 is enough to properly fund an expedition to Venus.
