    The One

    YOU are the one who tipped Emerald onto the stretch goal I am most excited for - the "Hire A Cryptography Consultant" tier. Creating this tier is a risk - will this pledge be backed?

    The events of Emerald are all tied to one event, one extremely important past event that happened hundreds of years prior to Emerald. That event was caused by one individual, who affected the course of history significantly. You get to be that individual, and be featured as one of the most important people in the Emerald universe - including any other games that are made within that same universe (which there very likely will be WINK WINK).

    Of course this includes all previous rewards, and don't worry about shipping costs! I'll work closely with you to fit you into the mythos of Emerald, and all other games in the Emerald universe. Credited in-game as an Executive Producer (ExProd).
