1,500 Backers, we offer you a new goal!

17 likes

Last night we finally reached 1,500 backers. It took a little longer than we had hoped, but it does not change the fact that it makes us very happy. So happy, in fact, that we decided to drop the 48 hour limitation we had previously imposed and will give the Kickstarter Editions of the game their own, unique cover!

What’s more, when the time comes we will prepare a selection of potential covers and allow all backers to vote which one we should use for the final packaging. Sound fair?

Now that we have reached this initial goal, lets move to the next one. We want to continue attracting new backers, of course, and therefore we have decided that we will be adding an additional ending to the game if we reach 2,500 backers!

In its current version, the game will contain three different main endings, each with a number of subtle variations. With the new goal we will add a fourth main ending path to the game, that will divert from the others and will offer an additional, unique way to complete the game. We feel it is a great goal to aspire to, as it also adds tremendous replay value, and we hope you will continue to help us gather momentum and exposure for the “Deathfire” Kickstarter, so that we can not only reach this goal, but blast way past it and add other cool features to the game over the duration of this campaign.


Thank you all for your support!

A word to our International Backers

Yesterday I touched upon the problems backers in countries like Germany may have, being unable to place pledges without a credit card. As it turns out, there is a fairly simple and straight forward way to solve the problem. (Thanks go to our backers ☆Citizen Silencer☆ and Stephan Hammes for pointing us in that direction.)

Most countries, including Germany, offer prepaid credit cards, such as Mywirecard and PaySafeCard, which can often be purchased at gas stations. These cards can be charged with any amount of money you wish and can then be used like regular credit cards. This way it is possible for anyone who place a pledge here on Kickstarter and support our project.

Both, Mywirecard (http://www.wirecardbank.com) and PaySafeCard (http://www.paysafecard.com) even allow you to create and manage your prepaid credit card online, so check them out.

Shout-out to our Friends

Today, I wanted to let you know that Kingart Games have just released Battle Worlds: Kronos last week. It is a game that has been funded through a Kickstarter campaign some time ago and is finally available for everyone to play!  Check it out on Steam, for example - http://store.steampowered.com/app/237470/

      Yep, that's great, and fully in-line with my philosophy. Thanks for the prompt response!!

      It will expand the game as a whole in all of its incarnations. Creating separate versions of the game - one with the ending, another without and so forth would be a logistical nightmare to maintain and test and would not make any sense at all. For us it is about making the best possible game, not penalizing or prioritizing certain players.

      @S.D.-Jammin' for Bolt Riley by reading the update I understand that the new ending will be for all players - only the newe cover is a special for Kickstarter-Backers. So all players will come to benefit the new end ... may Guido put this straigt?

      VersionPlease do confirm that the new ending, should we reach the requisite backer count, will be incorporated into every version of the game, not only exclusive to Kickstarter backers. I, personally, feel that exclusivity on Kickstarter games should be reserved for physical rewards (limited edition box cover is fantastic in this regard, signatures, etc.) and chances at in-game placements (name in the credits, backer portrait or statue, named items or NPC's, and so forth).

      It's so important that the crowd-funding community build on it's legacy of rejecting ugly publisher tactics like DRM, game-changing pre-order DLC, and zero-day DLC in general. Largely, backers want to contribute to not only a game, but a studio whose ideals are worth aspiring to. The only thing better than an amazing game from Kickstarter is a healthy studio full of great games, and the resources to to bring them to is every couple of years. Making the best possible Deathfire for *everyone* regardless of when they chose to get buy it, is the best way to achieve that goal for G3 :-)

      Thanks for the info, Kordanor. From halfway across the world, it is a bit tricky for me to evaluate what is working and what is not. A gas station-bought prepaid credit card is probably still the most viable and quickest option because you can pick them up right then and there.

      To my knowledge a paysafe Card is NOT a credit Card but an entirely different payment method. However it seems like paysafe cards can be used to pay on amazon-us
      While pre paid credit cards can also be bought in Germany and Austrian Gas Stations and Banks they work like regular Credit Cards. Paysafe Cards however are a different payment method, besides Direct Debit, or Credit Cards. So in order to pay with that the shop needs to support the PaySafe payment method.
