Update #8

Announcing a much lower Linux stretch goal

3 comments

Good news for Linux users: we need just $1,005 more to support Linux! We've updated the Linux stretch goal to $6,500, and as of this writing we are at $5,495. That's 85% of the way there!

Why the change?

For those not familiar, the previous stretch goal amount for Linux support was $10,000. I'll be honest with you, that number always did seem a little high to me. I think when we were working on the Kickstarter, we were overwhelmed with everything else we had to do, and so we didn't spend much time thinking about the stretch goals. Sorry about that.

Ya know, somewhere in the back of our minds, we thought time spent on stretch goals was time wasted, because we had no confidence that we'd even get to the 100% mark. So thank you very much for showing us that we have a solid community of supporters, and that we should think more positively next time! You have made all the difference.

After reaching 100%, we started to scrutinize the stretch goals. This, combined with Linux questions from backers, convinced us that we should invest time in Linux sooner rather than later. Geoff got motivated the other day, booted into Ubuntu, and managed to get a build running. Exciting!

After this initial sanity check and some time estimating, we think we can support all the major Linux distros in about 6 work days. At our current burn rate of $250/day, that's $1,500. So with a $5,000 total stretch goal, the Linux goal is now $6,500. If you love Linux, or know someone who does, help us meet this goal!

What's next?

You may notice that the stretch goals now have a mysterious section with secret super spy words. It's a secret to everyone! I'm going to post support for an exciting new platform just as soon as I can. More to come!

      Hmmmm, could be! ;)

      We'll have to see how it goes. The lofty stretch goal is to ENSURE support, because Kickstarter commits us to that platform. Outside of reaching the goal, we'll investigate and do our best, but if we run out of money, we won't be able to launch on any more platforms.

      More news coming today :-)

      Exciting new platform... By listening to the Dark cast with LDG, I bet it's Wii U!
      If we don't hit the 32k stretch goal, but you manage to make enough money from game sales, Crypt run will be released on this "exciting platform"?
