      Can anyone offer insight on getting an RMA for your video card? I've emailed both addresses I can find (usa@powercolor.com & David.lee@powercolor.com) and neither of them have replied.

      Happy Holidays to everyone. We'll work to try to get an update out there soon, The team is focused and working hard on making progress in the game. Russ Pitts from Polygon has been here this week, listening in on team meetings, talking with team members, and preparing his next story on the development process. That will also give you another independant view into how the game development is progressing when his story releases. We're looking forward to turning the corner on development and moving towards betas, and then release.

      Thanks so much for being a backer!

      @Hidden Path,
      Could you consider a DRM Free option / GOG for DG 2 ?
      I'm skipping containment for steam, that will be very helpful.

    6. Square640.small

      Creator Hidden Path Entertainment, AMD & Razer on July 15, 2013

      Defense Grid: Containment came out in January and was funded by this Kickstarter. DG2 which was funded by an investor will be out sometime in the first half of 2014. Backers will get a copy of DG2 in addition to their copy of Containment and other rewards.

      Yes, that's my understanding. I believe they came with a 1 year warranty. Another person just was asking on the forums and it sounded like he reached them.

      Unfortunately one of my 6770 cards died Today, my machine will not boot up with it connected to power. Tried a spare power supply and the issue continues, running on one card works fine though.

      Is the RMA information that was previously posted still valid?

      @Hidden Path, any news as to when you will update Defense Grid 1 with multiplayer? Honestly, that was one of the things I was most excited about with this kickstarter--this is described in your Kickstarter as being one of the first things that would to take place to help towards getting the tech in Defense Grid 2 up and running. I think this smaller stepstone would restore confidence in me and some of your other fanbase.

      Very sorry to hear that. I know that they packaged 1200 posters or so to send out, but of course we want each one handled very carefully.

      Creator Noah Wexo on February 1, 2013

      I have the same comment to leave as Alex Collins and Randy Jimenez. While the poster looks great and my son loves having it up on the wall of his room, I was disappointed to see that the lower left corner was crumpled and ripped as if it had been hurriedly shoved in. Please take a little more care when packaging them in the future.

    21. Slytherin.small

      Creator Alex Collins on January 31, 2013

      My package arrived today, seemingly intact and all. I do echo Randy's comment--the unsigned poster had one corner crumpled, like it was shoved in without care... otherwise, the items seem to have arrived without damage.

    First, you get a Steam code for a free copy of the original Defense Grid (PC) game immediately: as soon as we know you are a backer, even before funding closes. Then in December (we estimate), you'll get a digital copy of DG:Containment, and after that you'll get any new DG content funded from this Kickstarter when development is complete – you’ll also get DG2 – either funded directly from this Kickstarter or later when we are able to release it ourselves. We'll also create a new private forum for backers that you can join.

    $5000 tier rewards + a special invitation to our big milestone review that will take place midway through development in Bellevue, WA. Come meet with the development team in person, we’ll have a delicious lunch, then take a tour of Hidden Path Entertainment, get something to drink out of the Defense Fridge, and settle in for a custom-tailored presentation on the development progress underway. You will hear everything about the creative process of making the game in person, play any early versions of content that are available, and then you can share the info and your opinion with the rest of the backers over your official VIP tagged forum account. Dinner with the team discussing all you heard during the day caps off the visit. Your name will be listed in the VIP Backer section of the credits instead of other sections. (Backers must be able to travel to Bellevue, WA)
