Documentary!

I have some very exciting news! If we can get over $50,000 pledged, there will be a documentary made about the development of the game. It will be made by Nicholas Kleczewski, who has already made 7 feature length documentaries and won several awards, including the Audience and Grand Jury Awards for Best Documentary in Slamdance at the Sundance FIlm Festival. Please help to ensure our pledges exceed $50,000 so that this can happen! And if possible, let's try and get more than that so that the quality can be better.

Nick has insisted that the documentary will be an honest portrayal of what happens during development. If everything goes to hell, you'll see it happen. You will see both our failures and successes. And I can already tell you that there will be many failures along the way because making a game is no easy task.

The documentary will be released in episodes at least once a month. People that pledge $30 will also receive extra clips along with the monthly episodes. These clips could be anything from expanded moments from the episodes or just goofy little things that happen along the way.

In order to motivate more pledges, I've decreased the $25 pledge to $15 and included the documentary, so you get the game, the video series, and private forum access. That's a great deal! I also decreased the $35 pledge to $30 and included an HD download of the documentary with extras. Of course, you'll only get the documentary in those rewards if we get over $50,000.

We also may be interested in releasing a DVD and Blu-ray of the documentary if there is enough interest. Currently the documentary is only planned as monthly episodes, but Nick has expressed interest in turning it into a feature length documentary. We'll have to see how it all turns out.

      Brandon, Kickstarter doesn't take your money until the end of the drive. If the project is fully funded (which this one is) then your pledge will be deducted that day. If not, your pledge will never be deducted. That's how it works for every kickstarter project. Cheers.

      so i pledged for 30$ but used a prepaid card and it never took the 30$ from my card and kickstarter is still telling me i backed u guys, i left the card with just over 30$ on it but the stupid holds took a dollar off so now I'm not sure whats going on! i know there is at least 29$ on the card and i don't want this to mess up my pledge, any ideas?

      Allright, thanks for clearing up that confusion. Switched to the $30 reward, but kept my pledge at $35 for you :)

      Kickstarter does not allow me to remove rewards until no backers are selecting them. The only thing I can do is limit the amount of people that can get them to try and discourage more people from selecting them. It's be great if you could switch to the $30 one instead. If everyone switches, I can delete the $35 to try and eliminate some of the confusion.

      I'm a bit confused on why the $35 goal is still showing up, but with a limit of 74, is it because I selected that goal originally? I am not going to lower my pledge to $30, that feels like kind of a rotten thing to do since this is basically a donation, but is there any reason to not switch to the $30 reward from the $35 one(Yes, I know I can still pledge $35 while choosing a $30 reward instead of $35)? Will the $35 still get everything the $30 gets like the documentary if you raise $50,000? Its mainly the limit of 74 that confuses me while the $30 is unlimited.
