Great Graphics Performance (x2) for a Great Game

Let's start this update off with a huge "Thank You!" 

Not only have all of you supported us in the past 4 weeks, but in the last 48 hours, many of you have help raise an addtional $40,000 as the AMD Radeon HD 6870 video cards drew interest from both existing and many new DG2 Kickstarter backers (over 5,000 backers now!).

We're getting much closer to the minimum, and we want to follow the last great video card offer that sold out, with another offer that we believe can be just as exciting. 

For a $106 pledge, you'll get the benefits of the $15 base tier, and get TWO AMD Radeon HD 6770 video cards.  If you're the technical type and have the slots and power supply for it, you can hook these cards up together and using AMD's Crossfire technology they'll work as one, and exceed the performance of the HD 6870's that sold out earlier.  If you aren't ready for Crossfire, you still get two great video cards at an amazing value.  You can keep one for yourself and give the other to a friend or relative.

If you know someone who likes Defense Grid and would love a couple of brand new AMD video cards, send them to the DG2 Kickstarter page.  We have until Tuesday at 2pm to raise less than $30,000 more to cross the minimum.  Every referral helps out!

This week's video update and in-game update with an epic new mini-game and more contests than ever will launch tomorrow.  Talk with you then!

Thanks!

Jeff

      would love to add more cards, but we have allocated all the cards that AMD provided to us

      is anyone willing to swap a cool $106 tier for my sweet $205 tier??? :-)

      Hi Chris,

      Obviously I want backers to get as much as possible, but what I needed to do was create new video card tiers for new people that didn't go to the existing backers. I had asked Kickstarter to clarify the $100 $150 and $175 tiers and they had done that for us in the past, but they weren't open to doing it this time. Once the tiers had a single backer I couldn't update them to be more clear in the new tiers, but basically the answer is that you have to pick a video card tier specifically to get a video card, they aren't inherited by any other tier.

      @Chris look at the previous update.

      You've easily got your goal. Projects always get a boost in the last few days, and a project that has made it this far almost never fails. Hell, just get TB to put out one tweet and you're set.

      here's an interesting question.
      Probably already asked and answered, but here goes.
      If I have pledged at the $ 110.00 (First Week Reward - get all the rewards of the $150 pledge level and below for just $110. This is only available to the first 100 people who pledge at this level.)
      And as it states get all the rewards of the $150 pledge level and below does it now mean that I am going to get all the new reward levels as well?

      14k more - this CAN BE DONE!
      (Question: will there be more challenges coming up?)

    9. Creator David on August 8, 2012

      Thank you for this offer!! For the price of one video card, I am getting TWO. Will go nicely in my TWO desktop PCs. Provided these cards aren't DOA or otherwise faulty. hehehe

      One more night to try to turn in a worthwhile Forge Campaign for the Video Tactics thread, then. I'll take it! Meanwhile, 27k to go.
