Surveys, Pre-Orders, and The Nameless!

As promised last week, surveys are now on their way to your inboxes! BackerKit is the pledge manager we are using for this campaign. Once you fill out your survey, well have all the info we need to deliver your rewards. All delivery of rewards will happen directly through the BackerKit system and you will be notified whenever a reward becomes available on your dashboard. If you didn't get an email from BackerKit, or it ended up in your spam folder, you can recover your survey here.

In Search of The Nameless

The first expansion for Aeon’s End digital is now available for pre-order. This add-on is using a new feature of BackerKit which works just like a Kickstarter campaign. Pledge your $8, and if enough other people also pledge, The Nameless will be added to the development schedule. We need quite a few pre-orders to be guaranteed to make it right away, but the pre-order period will last for several months. You will only be charged for this add-on if we reach the goal. Just a few hours in and we're already over 10% of the way there!

From now until Aeon’s End goes into Steam Early Access next year, backers can add-on to their pledges, but more importantly, folks who missed the campaign can pre-order as well! All pre-orders of the game include the content from the stretch goals we already unlocked - Promo Pack 1 and Promo Pack 2.

The pre-order store is now open!
The pre-order store is now open!

Tell your friends to pre-order to save some money on Aeon’s End and help us make the first expansion! Plus, with enough pre-order and add-on sales, several new mages could still join the fight to save Gravehold!

Wait a second, who is that?!
Wait a second, who is that?!

Pre-orders of Aeon’s End, as well as any non-expansion add-ons count towards these stretch goals. As of this writing, there’s already over $250 worth of pledges! If these goals are achieved, these mages will be included in the game for free! We’ll keep you updated in the coming weeks and months with the running totals for these stretch goals.

      @Handelabra Games. Are we close though, have we hit it or so close we will hit. I want the expansion, in fact I want every bit on content for the game to go to digital.

      Yes! We will make sure everyone knows before we lock down and charge orders next year. Also remember- no one will be charged for the expansion unless we reach the goal.

      ... I meant to say, before you end the pre-orders.

      If I fill out the survey now, can I come back later and buy the expansion?

      Ah, I didn't realize that. I don't know why Apple cares as long as they are getting their cut.

      @Joe - That is against the terms of the volume purchase program and they risk expulsion from the App Store by doing that. We are well aware of the mechanisms some devs try to use and we don’t think it’s worth the risk.

      The Evolution digital game is planning on handling iOS backers by doing a volume purchase from Apple, and then distributing codes to them. It seems to me, though, that Apple should just streamline this process by letting publishers buy codes directly simply by paying the Apple fee rather than having to buy their own games from themselves.

      @hackareatech - from a comment on the main page:
      Unfortunately, that is explicitly against the apple terms of service and our Apple contact has told us in no uncertain terms that doing this risks removal from the Appstore. We are aware that other companies have tired it, and some have even succeeded, but we're not willing to risk losing our second biggest market.

      believe me, no one is more frustrated by this than us.

      How much is the expansion expected to cost if you don't pre-order it? What is the savings? I'm most likely going to just wait for the mobile version anyway, and none of this counts towards that. You guys say there is no way to buy a "key" for mobile, but I've been invited into closed beta and alpha stages before for mobile apps. What about us buying our way into that. Then they convert into the real app once available. I bought the steam version of One Deck Dungeon in your other campaign, but barely played it, then he bought it on mobile where I play it all the time. I want to help the project, but not for steam. I think this is a solvable problem that you are missing out on additional funds for.

      Any idea how close we are to the expansion, hoping we have already hit it. Though assuming it would be saying somewhere that we have hit it, if we already did.

      @B Adams - Your name in the credits! Plus, in order for your mobile-cheerleading to count, you need to answer the survey (it'll be quick).

    12. B Adams on

      Is there anything on the survey relevant for mobile-cheerleading non-reward ($1) backers? I'm assuming not, but it doesn't hurt to check.

      Not had the e-mail yet, but I will be adding my $8 to get more contents. I hope this kicks off and the rest get done as well. This is a fantastic idea.

    14. Bean Álainn on

      Thank you much! I can safely preorder now. :)

    15. Handelabra Games 3-time creator on

      @belle the latter. It will be just before we launch the game into early access and we promise, we will give lots of warning before it happens!

    16. Bean Álainn on

      Are we charged for the expansion as soon as it's funded or is it at some future date when you lock down the orders?

      I'm sincerely hoping the expansion happens and more get added to the backerkit to get funded in this manner!!!!!!! I already put my $8 in! 😎
