Contagion hits it's goal of $50,000!

We want to thank everyone for helping us reach our goal so quickly from major Press, Youtubers, those building their fanbase, and others sharing the game all over the globe! We owe you a great deal and will be working just as hard as we always have (for most of us it's all we do after work with the support of our friends and loved ones).

Many of you asked for it! PewDiePie has enjoyed his first game of Contagion with other of our Youtube friends before his trip to Sweden! We hope he has time to do another Episode when he gets time and with our updates! Have a look-

 Now we reach for our Mac & Linux stretch goal! If all goes well Eurogamer article will be up soon!

Still hoping TotalBiscuit, AngryJoe, PC Gamer, Joystiq, Destructoid, and Kotaku reply to our many follow ups and make use of the keys we sent!

You guys made this happen, thank you!

-The Contagion Team

      Thank you Alexander, we appreciate everyone's kind words and support :) Also yes, the charges/payments don't go through till Kickstarter ends after the 13th. Takes a bit for the charges to be cleared.

      Congratulations guys on achieving your first goal, this game looks extremely fun and very well done. I am happy a group of developers are actually putting great amount of effort into their games and actually caring about what people want from a game. We need more developers like you, also i cannot wait until this releases and i am able to play, Super excited!!! lol.

      Also to those asking when they will be able to play, as soon as kickstarter's time limit runs out for how long they were given to achieve their goal, that is when you shall receive your key/keys.

      Once again thank you devs for this game, hopefully we also will make all the following goals as well, good luck and i will turn everyone i know onto this game so you will get as much support as possible. <3

      PewDeiPie gathers followers by being wacky. This is a common theme in many foreign Countries and his type of humor is accepted across the globe. Some may be jealous of his fame, some may feel he's now a commodity, and some may just enjoy how he can jump in a game goof around like we use to when we were kids. Well, why not all 3? He makes money doing what we loved to do behind closed doors on our consoles or PCs. I appreciate the fact that with all that fame and an upcoming trip he took time out to try something new whether or not we got our Kickstarter in the description.

      You can't love everyone but I love the part of me that is still a kid inside and congratulate him on monetizing off of it. Whatever floats your boat and haters gonna hate. Either way, just like all of you I give a well deserved thank you to PDP.
