Kickstarting Ain't Easy, But It's Necessary
Alright, the portal is closing. Just one last communique, to tidy up loose ends and put to rest your burning questions.
The flashdrive Levin designed, with the logo Levin also designed, was the sort of dark altar around which everything sorta revolved. At this point, it's plump with stuffs like a pinata. But friends! Do not strike it to reveal its contents. Insert the steel prong into your computer and discover:
USB drive (with Stretch Goal bonuses): Custom design, all previous episodes of DLC, Penny Arcade Book 3: The Warsun Prophecies, the "Downloadable Content" wallpaper, PAX Q&As from every PAX (except '06), the Paul and Storm albums "Do You Like Star Wars" and "Learning Town Soundtrack", and the MC Frontalot album "Favoritism."
Holy S! (The S means "shit.")
Stretch Goal Episodes, such as the Thornwatch, Lost Lands, and the two animated episodes will be available to everybody, but they only happened because backers wanted them to, so everybody owes you big time. Plus, at $35 and up you got two episodes of Family Lunch. You are wholly authorized to strut and/or preen.
Family Lunch is a term people wanted defined, and I am uniquely qualified to do so. Family Lunch is what we call it when we have lunch together on Fridays. I think we meant it to be ironic, but everybody likes each other, so it sort of stuck. We tend to discuss fairly heated issues during these, and we thought recording them and letting people download them might be a great way to make people hate us. Well, half of us. You'll thank the rest of us for finally having the courage to speak truth to power.
Steam Codes For Defense Grid will be "shipped" via email. So, not shipped as such. Still, you'll get them! That's the main thing.
I have to say that I am genuinely overwhelmed by the support, though perhaps I shouldn't be too surprised - you've only been telling us to do it for several years, and given the opportunity to make us do it you absolutely did so. When the funds come through, we'll order our preselected equipment and get down to the business you have empowered us to do. After an unconscionable hiatus, Downloadable Content will resume shortly.
Thank you so much.
