10,666 backers pledged $556,596 to help bring this project to life.

Moving into our NEXT PHASE.

WE DID IT! I'm so grateful and excited to see this project do so well and move into our NEXT PHASE: finishing the actual game. Here is a video, I hope you watch it. It has a lot of good words in it, as well as...A SHOCKING REVEAL :O

HARD INFO: Timer Music submissions

If you would like to submit your music for consideration for the Timer Music Album, the deadline is the end of March! Specifically midnight Pacific time, March 31. (What am I talking about? Details here.)

HARD INFO: Progress Updates

If you want to stay plugged into the latest bits of progress as we finish putting the actual game together, I'll be detailing that on this page on the MOD site. There is nothing there just yet, but...soon

If you missed pledging, or want to add more things to your order, you can still use the Add-On page with PayPal (we're building a more formal PayPal pre-order site, but in the interim, this works).


I will be revealing the Mystery Stretch Goal just as soon as the money lands in my bank account from Kickstarter.

Lots of people have been messaging me to request a specifically numbered Deluxe Box! If you've ordered the Deluxe Box and want a specific number, feel free to ask me. (001, 042, 314, and 666 are already taken. Also, others)

I will be messaging EARLY BIRD, GOAT STARE, INFAMY, TYCOON, PENNED, and FROM ABOVE backers this week to get the ball rolling on the specific parts of your pledge! The rest of you: GET READY because I'm coming for YOU SOON TOO

Thanks again, everyone! Your first digital rewards will start landing THIS WEEK.

      @Christopher: I know 007 is taken, I believe 013 is. To request your number, use the contact me link next to David's picture.

      If at all possible I would like to claim either 007, or 013 for my copy of the deluxe box! If those are already taken I'd be cool with 069 or 123.

    3. Kristen on March 22, 2013

      @wrincewind - Use the "contact me" link in the blue box in the upper right-hand corner to make your request.

      I have no clue if this is the right place to ask, but i was lucky enough to get the limited edition hardback copy of Machine of Death issue #111. If i could get copy #111 of the laser boxes, that would be amazingly kickass-radical!

      +1 Miranda for the laugh. I hope you get your request!

    6. Sam Hayes on March 21, 2013

      Are we allowed to do the $6 add on?

    7. Andy The Sane on March 21, 2013

      @Miranda: Love your comment! :)

      The mystery goal is that he is moving to Grand Cayman instead of making a game. That’s why he is waiting for the money to get to his account before announcing it. Muahahaha
      So everyone should start planning the assassination of David. (P.S. he dies by banana).

    9. Chris on March 21, 2013

      Allow me to be Asian for a minute and kindly request if possible box #888.

      "Six picked up her card and stared at it. She knew it, just knew this would be it. She'd been scared of him since she met him, and after... But he's in a maximum security prison in solitary confinement! Life without the possibility of parole... This card must mean something else. It can't be him. He can't be her death. SEVEN, it read. Six started to sob as she let the prediction fall to the floor. Seven the murderer. Seven the serial killer. Seven the cannibal. Six wished her sister Nine were here, but that just wasn't possible. Her card had read the same as Six's: SEVEN. Seven ate Nine, and Six had a terrible feeling that he was still hungry."

      So, David, can I have 789, please? :D Bwahahaha!

      It's hilarious to think that somewhere on David's list of discrete tasks that need to be completed is written "create a video recording of us showing 5 copies of the game to a goat".

    12. keviokevio on March 21, 2013

      I love how the first prediction in Fate Blitz #2 actually came true. Congrats for half a million :)

      After watching to the end, I may be adding "Buddy Blue" as a death card.

    14. Bryan A. Ellis on March 20, 2013

      Bugger. Well, I'll just have to be satisfied with box 13.

    15. bagheadinc on March 20, 2013

      @Bryan No, the ONLY way to get that card is to go to a con and meet Kris and/or David.

    16. Bryan A. Ellis on March 20, 2013

      I second the hope for a Twilight-Zonesque MoD series. Also, will the "Con exclusive" card be included in the Side Car & Deluxe versions of the game?

    17. Shivian Morgan on March 20, 2013

      Woah! You're being serious! Honestly though, this whole thing has been kinda mind-numbingly awesome. As a backer to some of the coolest and biggest Kickstarters so far (Pebble, Machine of Death, Story War, OUYA, and more) I flat-out honestly can say with utter certainty that you, Sir, and this project, is amazing. Thank you for being radical!

      Oops - trying to avoid the ninja....should be "one" not "was"..obviously

    20. Terence Chandler on March 20, 2013

      @Kalem - that was has already been taken (and requested several times over, I'm sure). But to reserve a number, click on "contact me" next to his avatar with your choice and he'll let you know if it's available.

      Hi David.

      For my Deluxe box, I would like to reserve the number 042.

      I'm in the military and I will not be able to make PAX East, I will pay someone a few bucks to send me a extra con card if they can grab me one please, just send me a message!

    23. David Malki ! 7-time creator on March 20, 2013

      @Terence – the real number is actually, amazingly, 996. So I think we'll make 1000 to cover Kickstarter and then maybe another ~25 or so for conventions.

    24. Terence Chandler on March 20, 2013

      @David - can you please include replacement F5 keys with our games???

    25. Ryan Bell on March 20, 2013

      Well done sir. You updates are both informative and highly entertaining, Backing this and STORY WAR have almost solidified my house as now being the HUB for game night with the neighbors. You guys are awesome. *Starts the one man clapping applause that is typical in all 80's rom-coms and everyone else joins in to a large applause*

    26. David Malki ! 7-time creator on March 20, 2013

      @Sarah – 1000.
      @Cyrus – It'll be Kris – you can ping him @krisstraub to see where he is at any given time maybe?

      This might not be the best place to put this, but this is the best way I can think for it to get a likely response.

      With PAX East coming up in a few days, could you post where we'll be able to find Ryan(?) to get the exclusive con card?

    28. Terence Chandler on March 20, 2013

      Per David before we finished, we're expecting about 1,100...but as he said, he now should have the exact number....

    29. bagheadinc on March 20, 2013

      @sarah At least 900

    30. sarah kimberly on March 20, 2013

      Anyone know what the number range on the boxes happens to be?

    31. bagheadinc on March 20, 2013

      It'd be awesome if they took video submissions like they took story submissions for the book. I wouldn't mind having another video project to work on. :)

    32. Terence Chandler on March 20, 2013

      Karate....CHOP! Ha! I'm back baby!! =) No one has a faster F5 than me!!

    33. R. Kris McNeely on March 20, 2013

      No, no. You don't want a Machine of Death *movie*, people. You want a "Twilight Zone" style MoD *TV show*.

    34. bagheadinc on March 20, 2013

      Curse you Terence *F5F5F5F5F5*

    35. bagheadinc on March 20, 2013

      @Kristo You should message him (click Contact Me beside the picture of his face), that way your comment doesn't get overlooked :)

    36. Terence Chandler on March 20, 2013

      @Kristoydynamics: send him a message through the "contact me" button next to his avatar. (I probably got Ninja'd....)

    37. Kristodynamics on March 20, 2013

      How should we contact you about a specific Deluxe Box number? Is here ok? I'd like number 516 if possible. Thanks!

    38. Terence Chandler on March 20, 2013

      Oh yes and Machine of Death Movie??? (please) MAKE IT SO!!!!!

    39. Kristen on March 20, 2013

      I love this update! I love hearing you be deeply passionate. Thank you for letting us e part of this. :-)

    40. Liam Hughes on March 20, 2013

      Machine of Death video series in the vein of the books?

    41. Terence Chandler on March 20, 2013

      "The freedom of ignorance"....WAHOO!!!! So excited!! *F5F5F5F5F5*

    42. bagheadinc on March 20, 2013
