Surveys are now officially locked! Many of you have already started to receive the first of many backer rewards to come. We have a lot to talk about, so let’s dive in.
Amplitude Live Stream
We know you’ve been itching for more Amplitude gameplay since we shared footage of “Phantoms” a few weeks ago. Instead of just releasing another gameplay video, we’re kicking it up a notch and hosting an hour-long live stream over on Twitch this coming Monday, May 18th at 5PM Eastern.
You can find the Harmonix Twitch channel here: http://www.twitch.tv/harmonixmusic. Be sure to click the follow button ahead of time to receive a reminder once we go live!
Nate, Senior QA at Harmonix, and myself will be streaming the latest build, taking your questions, and having a great time showing you the game!
As for Q&A, we’re giving high priority to all questions from backers! If have a question about Amplitude you’d like to ask, you can leave them in the comments of this post. We’ll tailor the live stream to your questions and answer as many as we can! Not a backer? Tweet your questions ahead of time to @AmplitudeGame, or hold onto it for Monday and post it in the chat!
Again, Amplitude live stream, Harmonix Twitch channel, Monday, May 18th at 5PM Eastern. Be there!
As many of our U.S. backers have noticed, we sent out the $20 of PSN credit rewards to all backers who pledged $35 or more.
We hit a little turbulence the first time we sent codes out, but have since then reissued codes to everyone who received them. If you had issues with your codes, check your BackerKit account for a fresh set!
If you are still having trouble with your codes, please consult our FAQ on BackerKit. We have solutions for most of the issues we’ve seen thus far. If your question isn’t answered in the FAQ, just send us a message on Kickstarter!
Upcoming Reward Fulfillment
As we move forward with Amplitude’s Kickstarter, and get closer to producing and shipping out your rewards, I figured it would be a good time to let you know the next steps for fulfillment!
As of a few weeks ago, we locked down your BackerKit surveys. Those who have answered will be unable to update their questions and pledge information. Those who have yet to answer at all are at risk of not receiving rewards!
In the next couple of weeks we’re locking down shipping information and charging cards for any additional add-ons ordered. Soon after that, we send it all off to get produced and shipped to you! Once we nail down a date, we'll be sure to let you know when this is expected to happen!
We’ll have a lot more specific updates for those steps when the time comes, including photos of what the final merch will look like, but for now I thought it’d be great to let you all know where we’re at and where we’re going with reward fulfillment!
That’s all we have for this week! Don’t forget to tune into our Twitch stream this coming Monday, May 18th for a full hour of Amplitude!
Until next time,
- Nick Mudry
