 Wow! Nothing beats the smell of victory in the morning!  

You guys already know that I'm not really a PR person. So, I hope you will excuse me for thanking you in the only way that I know how. 

 HOLY CRAP, YOU GUYS!!! 

 CROWFALL MADE ALMOST $1,800,000 IN PLEDGES! 

 I can't believe it. Between Kickstarter and our Paypal collection directly on crowfall.com, we raised just $1,783,796. from over 17,000 backers! 

 I feel dizzy. I need coffee. or maybe a nap. 

 That staggering last-minute surge means that, in the last 24 hours... 

- We hit $1.5 million, unlocking the Infected rules and the Minotaur archetype (was that really yesterday morning?!) 

- We unlocked the 15,500 backer All Father relic update, 

- We passed $1.6 million, allowing us to build the Tournament system, 

- We achieved the 17,000 backer goal, unlocking the Centaur relic, and 

- We passed the $1.7 million mark, achieving the Combat Pets stretch goal! 

Amazing... Unbelievable. 

So, what happens next? 

Now we get to work! We have a game to build. We refine the vision. We engage with you on the forums. We discuss our ideas (and mistakes) openly. We find the right solutions, together.

And we continue to seek out our kind. Crowfall isn't a game for everyone. But there are still players out there -- brave, lost, and arguably crazy -- who will share this vision. Who, like us, will HAVE to see it come to life. We need to find them, and bring them home. 

We won't let you down. We're going to show the world a new kind of online experience.

Thank you for making CROWFALL a reality. 

We'll see you in the game!

P.S.. For those of you who found us late -- or for friends that couldn't pledge through Paypal for some reason, we're now accepting pledges on our own website at www.crowfall.com . The bundles aren't the same, but the deals are still great and you still have a chance to jump into this project early!

      @Colin Sng The option to upgrade will be at their website. You can find some information in this thread:

      Same question as @Tyler Giffin, would be nice to have a system that allows us to still upgrade our tiers beyond what we have currently pledged. Like BackerKit or something similar.

      I buy this for VR first. Done tight, this will be what sells VR/Oculus; the great adventure. Exploring worlds and interacting with people as well as environment.
      I also hope for a more immersive MMO. A game like any COOP game, where the story and interaction feels engaging instead of that familiar "click many buttons" combat (in BF i use like 3 buttons) and "couldn't care less" storylines. Make sure I'm right and happy coding :)

      @Tyler Giffin When they get the information from kickstarter, they will provide you with a way to connect your kickstarter to your Crowfall account.
      You will be able to upgrade to the new 2015 bundles, while keeping your kickstarter rewards.

      He said "almost 80 million"! In a tragic accident he overheard a conversation about the other successful crowd-funded space sim game, but misunderstood it as their own total. So he partied all night blowing a LOT of dough and noone had the heart to tell him the truth.

      Congratulations to all on the final push! Looking forward to the beta!

    8. Tyler Giffin on

      Is there going to be any 'upgrade' path or tying your Kickstarter account to the Crowfall account so I can roll that into a higher tier?

    9. Sean "Quansword" Boland on

      That push at the end was amazing, great job.

      Do you guys have a way to link our Kickstarter and Crowfall.com accounts?

      Congratulations!!! :O)

      Oh my god, this jaw dropping and crazy. How successful this was is amazing, and the amount of stretch goals unlocked is unbelievable! Can't wait to see what happens next!

      "But there are still players out there -- brave, lost, and arguably crazy -- who will share this vision."

      Crazy is probably one of the better ways to describe us. :)

      Congratulations to the team and everyone who pledged, be it the lowly backers like me, or the people who spent thousands. Onward and upward we go.

      the Extra should go to the PET features more unless they come up with another stretch goals like starcitizens on their crowdfunding website.

      Gordon must have slept like only 30 hours in the entire week so he's already a superhero to be here making a video for us! =P

      I am intensely satisfied.

    20. Amanda Fay Kratz on

      Lol 18million Gordon needs another cup of coffee. Apparently he stayed up all night watching the numbers

    21. Nick DeFeo on

      Gordon meant $1.8 million right? Of did I miss something?
