A Quick DG2 Kickstarter Housekeeping update - your Steam keys
Happy DG2 Kickstarter Anniversary! A year ago today, we were 5 days in to the DG2 Kickstarter campaign and the future was unknown. Now, a paid-for and built expansion and one new investor later, and we've delivered Defense Grid:Containment and are well on our way to making DG2.
Speaking of that, DG2 development is deep and underway with anywhere from 11 to 15 people (depending on the day and the tasks) working fast and focused on getting the foundation of the sequel built. We'll have much much more to share about that as things come together, but in the meantime, I wanted to let you know about our automated messaging that started this morning and will likely run through tomorrow.
If you remember a year ago we were able to send code keys to your Kickstarter message thread as you pledged. Over time, Kickstarter updated their web site and our ability to post to your message thread in an automated way was temporarily lost. So, we sent out Containment and Community keys through email. That worked for many folks, but not for everyone (domain filtering, junk mail filters, lost email, etc.).
So, the fine folks at Kickstarter provided some technical assistance recently, and we've rebuilt our system and begun sending out Kickstarter messages to every backer with a full list of their Steam codes to date. Since that thread sticks around, you'll always be able to go into your Kickstarter account, look at your inbox and find all the Steam keys we've allocated to you. That will include (depending on your backer tier level) 1 or 3 Defense Grid: The Awakening keys, 1 or 3 "DLC keys" which add on the four Resurgence Map Packs and also the You Monster pack, and also 1 or 3 Defense Grid: Containment keys.
The new system sends messages pretty slowly, like 100 an hour or so, so in theory it will take 63+ hours to get you your messages. So, it may take a few days.
We'll let you know when we think they're all sent and you can verify you've received yours then. For now, I wanted to let you know we were getting started with the process.
Thanks again for being a backer!!
