      The "Kickstarter survival kit" as well as the "Backer backpack" are included in all the tiers under them, so yes! No extra money is needed at the higher tiers.

      I may be confused here.. is the "kickstarter survival kit" included in any of the other tiers - ie.. the $75 one :D or does that $ need to be added?

      Looks pretty awesome, I've played around with mutation related mechanics before, It would be cool if you added some factors that could effect which mutations are given as opposed to leaving it entirely random, lending itself to interesting and co-ordinated combinations and such, or you could favor traits from the more 'successful' zombies a bit like how evolution works today.

      I also saw this on RPS, and Reddit, both of which were widely positive about ROAM. People seem pretty off put about the game using zombies, understandably, but the other parts of the game are incredibly interesting and enticing. Your mutations sounds interesting, kind of like a mix of L4D2's mutations and ARPG's random generation system for unique enemies.

      Neat. Saw this on RPS. Had to back what looks to be a solid idea. Let's hope for execution! Definitely excited to see the mutation and special zombie types.
