Grim Dawn passes $400k + New melee combat video!
5 stretch goals unlocked!
I think congratulations are in order for everyone! We now have 5 stretch goals under our figurative belts and now at $400k you get to help us select a new environment type to add to the game!
Now too far away we get 2 new monster types and then a big one just a little beyond that at $25, which provides 3, uniquely themed, end-game dungeons!
Anything is possible in these last two days. I know people are very eager for two-handed weapons, an additional end-game boss and, the big one, a new survivor town hidden somewhere in the wilderness! While the latter goals are still distant, other kickstarters have pulled down far more in their final days, so it isn't totally out of the realm of reality.
New melee combat video
As if things weren't exciting enough, we've just broken $400k, the hours are counting down but, the show isn't over yet! In response to comments requesting to see more melee combat footage, we've created a rather lengthy video to satiate your melee needs.
This video shows a dual-class melee build created by mixing primarily soldier skills with a bit of demolition. Even without changing any skills, this character could also pick up a crossbow or firearm and be rather effective that way as well as the Grim Dawn skills are designed to be even more flexible, in terms of weapon use, than those in Titan Quest.
Last but not least, new reward tiers
I know, I know, there are far too many tiers but these are the last. It is very difficult trying to meet all of the different demands for various configurations of rewards with Kickstarters 1 pledge - 1 reward system. However, to resolve the biggest remaining demand among fans, we've added the following single-copy + expansion tiers:
$45 Early Access Edition + Expansion is everything from the $35 tier, including beta access, plus our first expansion (which will be developed after release).
$58 Digital Collector's + Expansion is everything from the $50 tier, including alpha / beta access, plus our first expansion (which will be developed after release).
Hopefully that should satisfy a lot of people who only wanted a single, early-access copy but also wanted the expansion. While I'm sure there are still more combinations people might want, we really have to stop here as the rewards are going off the page and people are getting confused. I think this is as close as we're going to get on Kickstarter to making most everyone happy. ; )
After Kickstarter, probably a couple weeks after, we will work on putting up a revised pre-order system, which may better accommodate some people. We can't promise that all the same rewards or pricing will be available though as we just haven't had time to put much thought into it yet.
I hope you enjoy the new footage!
