Brief update on PayPal, fan art competition!

Posted by Red Thread Games (Creator)

Hi all,

After the end of the Kickstarter campaign, we still have a few limited edition boxes (and USB keys) left, and we're now offering those through PayPal -- but only until we run out. We're not making any more; that's why they're called 'limited editions'! So if you (or anyone you know) wants one, spread the word and go grab 'em while they're still there.

We will continue to offer the digital editions through PayPal for a while longer, along with the non-limited edition boxes. We will also be selling T-shirts on our website very soon, and we'll send out an update when we do.

A lot of you have been asking for a way to increase your Kickstarter pledges and get a higher tier reward, and we're looking into it right now. Hopefully we'll have something in place within a couple of days.

We're currently working our way through all the practicalities around sending out surveys, getting everyone forum badges, and simply figuring out the road ahead -- thank you for your patience, and we'll get in touch with everyone soon!

Last but not least, we've finally announced the nominees for our Dreamfall Chapters fan art competition! We couldn't pick just three, however, so instead we've made a bunch of categories and listed all of our favourites within each category. Hop on over to our official website to vote for YOUR favourites.

Thanks again, everyone, and we'll be back with more later this week!

      Eric, you also could have bought the second tier via PayPal. You still can.

      @Jamil Ismaili Thanks, never thought of that or probably thought it was not allowed. That is very good to know for future pledges. :)

      @Jenny $427,141 remaining at the end of the kickstarter . The total including PayPal then was $1,572,859

      How far are we from reaching 2 000 000, counting pay pal too?

      @Starlock To paraphrase the old text adventures, You can't do that...Yet
      Basically it's something RTG have said they want to offer but they're still working on how

    6. Adalan | Dream Traveller on

      How do you switch to a higher tier through Paypal if you already got charged for a lower tier on Kickstarter?

    7. Jamil Ismaili | Eternal Dreamer on

      @Eric For the future it's possible to have more than one Kickstarter account and to bid that way for two different, limited tiers.

      Sad and cool at the same time. I was hoping to add the $350 tier to my current Tier I selected on the survey but that is Kickstarter's fault for denying us the option to choose more than one tier.

      @AstralWanderer limited collectors editions uniqness is not not about numbers printed on the box, it's about exclusive items inside like printed artbook in 500 usd edition or exclusive printed art in 750 usd editions which are not obtainable anywhere else. It can't be available as stand alone items as this wold cause lost of limited edition exclusivity. Collector edition without exclusives woldn't be the true collector edition.

      @Jan: "selling extras only available in limited edition boxes as stand alone items wuldn't be fair for people who have chosen >500$ pledges with these boxes as a reward."
      I don't see why this should be the case - the limited edition boxes will still *be* limited (with signature and numbers) and any extra money RTG can raise from selling more extras can go towards making the game better for all. Also with printed material, the greater the quantities you order, the lower the price per unit - saving RTG money which could also go towards the game.

      @ AstralWanderer - selling extras only available in limited edition boxes as stand alone items wuldn't be fair for people who have chosen >500$ pledges with these boxes as a reward.

      So guys - now that it's gone to paypal how do I add some numbers to my pledge? I'd like to go up to $75 but I can't find any way to? HELP! (thanks!)

      @John One of the backers brought them some 'very addictive' muffins when she came to attend the final 3 hour live stream. Perhaps they are that good ;)
      I get the feeling Ragnar's a night person and he's also said a few times he's got a faster internet connection at home, plus for the KS at least it tarried with US hours but otherwise agree with you - RTG get some rest ! ;P

      When was this update posted?? I believe in the middle of the night AGAIN. Seriously don't you guys need some sleep or so? Do you have a secret energy source? Please tell me about it. Your very well run campaign is over now, so you can relax a bit. I appreciate your enormous effort a lot but I hope you won't get ill.

      Is/will there be opportunity to buy a USB on its own?

    17. Zdenek "Alcarmo" on

      Sorry I know it´s out of this topic but I just found out that my money was discharged from my bank account - finally :-D
      YAY - so happy I´m an official backer now!

      and of course I will vote for artists :-) there are so many masterpieces so it will be tough to decide :-O

    18. Kamos | Exile in Torment on

      Yeah, seriously. Congratulations to everyone in that page, you are really talented!

    19. Christine - Dream Traveller on

      Wow, that is hard trying to decide. I see why you guys pawned it off... er let us decide.

    20. Matt Combes on

      I realize the boxes at the $110 tier are not "limited edition", but will there be any discerning features that separate the $110 tier boxes from those sold to the public upon release? Like a Kickstarter logo or something? Or will they be exactly the same?

      Thanks for the update - pretty quick considering the post-KS hangovers most other projects have! Any chance of physical versions of Tome of the Balance, Art of Dreamfall Chapters and Journeys being offered as standalone extras? (being able to sell more copies could also lower the unit price). Will other payment options (e.g. Amazon Payments, BMTMicro) be offered for those who can't/won't use Paypal?

      Glad to see you still let people pledge for DFC.
      Once again thank you for creating this project spand hope for the Journey Home in the Future.
