      @Joshua - I just re-read my last comment and it wasn't quite right. At the $25 level you wouldn't get a T-Shirt, so the addon T-Shirt wouldn't be an extra one, but I hope you got the concept I was trying to give :)

      Don't forget if you guys want to support Cyan further, you can now purchase their latest game on Steam called "realMYST Masterpiece Edition."

      @Joshua - if you would click on "home" at the top and then scroll down passed the chart that shows what you will receive for the amount that you pledged during the "kickstarter" - you will see three things that you could have bought over and above your pledge items. if you didn't add any more money beyond your pledge amount, then you can put n/a in all the catagories. But lets say you pledged $25 and then added $37 to buy an extra T-Shirt. This survey is to let you check that you want to add on a T-Shirt and let them know what size you want.. I hope that clears this up for you. If not, I will try to be clearer if you let me know what is still not clear

      Could you enlighten me on these addons? I am confused. I expected what I was getting was in the description of my pledge. Now I am having to choose what I would like to receive?

      Survey completed. Not sure what I did but my math was wrong and I had extra money left over after I entered my add ons --- so I just told them to put it toward the game budget. Chalk it up to old age I guess -- ha ha !!!! I sure do miss the fun we had here during "kickstarter". Hi to everyone :)

      I am incredibly excited about this game, the prospect of a first-person adventure by the creators of the Myst series is just great, I loved the "feel" and tone of Myst and how it just drops you into an alien world without much explanation and you have to figure stuff out. I just want to see some screenshots in the engine or something.

      I'm curious how many of the KS projects that considered (or possibly promised) OR support are going to nix it, due to the recent buyout by FB.

      Could you guys possibly put out an update plugging 'The Virtual Giant Walk-Through Brain' - they have 3 days to go and could do with a bit of help. have a look. Probably interesting to many of your backers as it could work really well with Oculus.

      hey all, sorry for "spamming" but i thought some of you might be interested in another really promising looking adventure game "Dead Synchronicity" that just started their run at the kickstarter. Just thought it might interest somoene with its nice art style and mature sci-fi story. It's from a samll new indie developer without any big names attached to it but there's a demo already available so you can see bits of it in action clearly showing that they know what they're doing and are able to deliver. Here's the link to their campaign:

      The fundraising totals were updated as of yesterday on the Get Obduction page. Also, brief project updates have been posted to the backer forums about once a week. There has been nothing about the end of fundraising, fwiw.

      I PM'ed greydragon to get access. Nothing.

      Am I going to at least get the game when it comes out? I was hoping to use the forum access as a confirmation that Cyan has my correct kickstarter info...

      RAWA's mama--we should get together again and celebrate the new backer forum and the new updates from Ryan! How are you doing? Are you feeling up to lunch? I emailed you, but not sure which of these you check more often so I'm hitting both. Excited to join the backer forum!

      It’s worth mentioning something that tripped me up: you have to register at Cyan’s support site, separate from your Cyan forum registration, before you can see the ticket submission button. Whew. Maybe the Backer’s Forum is invisible… is this our first test? Clicking everything…
