      BTW I ran into some issues getting Chasm to run nicely on a pretty basic Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS box. I performed these steps to get it working:

      uncomment the line "drivers = pulse,alsa,oss..." and remove pulse from the list
      apt-get install mono-complete libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-mixer1.2 libsdl-mixer1.2-dev
      chmod +x chasm

      and you're off to the races.

      Awesome. Proud to support this game. Games like this are what fill the huge vacuum in my games library created since 3D gaming took off.

      I remember back when 3D gaming really came into its own, started to inundate consoles, etc. I thought, "Well this is awesome. So some games will be 3D, and some will be 2D." I thought 3D games would just be another TYPE of game. Not something that would dominate the whole industry, which was definitely something I did NOT want to see happen.

      I love 3D games. But I think some balance in game design and aesthetic is important.

      It's great that the inidie community can keep this kind of game alive.

      @Logan We were #35 when the campaign started, and we're #33 now. I'm trying to get directly into contact with one of the Valve reps I met at GDC though to help secure these dang Steam keys...

      Great job!

      I've been keeping my eye on this game for a while and after having helped test the GDC demo I knew it would be a hit if ever it got on Kickstarter. Glad it's going so well :D

      Hopefully we manage to get through some awesome stretchgoals

      Quick question, what rank are you guys at in the Greenlight? I know you were around 34 before this. Has it changed?
