Update #17

Extended Open Beta

Greetings Hunters, Testers and Collectors!

At nearly 45% of our goal and with 16 days remaining - it looks like the campaign could come in just over (or under!) the wire. Things are a little quiet these days, seems we're in the eye of the Kickstarter hurricane. But with a lot more press coverage on the way; the game's official launch on SpicyWorld, Steam and Kongregate next week; and more collectible rewards in store, we should be alright. At least I hope so! Did I mention the risk of Japanese demons flooding the earth if we don't hit our target? Probably should have put that in the main goals for the campaign. Kotaku's going to have a field day with that. "American McGee causes destruction of Earth!" Great. 

Let's not think about the demon apocalypse. Instead, let's focus on the positive! For instance, the Open Beta period has been extended all the way through to launch. We'd thought about taking the game offline for a week prior to Final launch, but with all the traffic being generated by the campaign, Steam announcement and press, we've decided to keep the servers online all the way up till launch. If you've not already tried out the game, why not Zoidberg? You can play via web browser or a downloadable client (PC and Mac), all options being available here: www.angry-red.com 

I know, I know. Shut up and get to the Alice stuff for today. Ok! How about... (checking the goodie bag...)

75x limited edition prints on 100lb archival quality paper.18" x 24"  This is a single image, unlike the package we offered yesterday, but presented at a lower price. It will also ship from the US. Created for Gallery 1988's "Alice: Madness Returns" art show, which was our launch party for A:MR in Los Angeles. Image at bottom of post. It's one of my favorites. 

Lastly, by popular demand we'll be adding a PayPal page where you can access the various support tiers and make payments through PayPal. Expect to see that in the next 24~48 hours. Also working on a system whereby you can convert chickens, loose teeth and stray children into online payments. That could take longer to implement. 

PS: A wonderful write-up on Akaneiro over on Polygon.

      @Evan, it includes all previous digital tiers, yes. From the $55 signet ring down.

      BTW: This IS the $60 print right? Phantom City print?

      Creator Evan Adams on January 19, 2013

      OK, please clarify for me....Does the $60 print on the Kickstarter (Phantom City Screen print) include all previous non-$60 reward tiers? IE The Signet ring and below? I understand that this doesn't include the other $60 tiers (signed copies of games), but I'm under the impression it DOES include all other previous reward tiers considering the wording (and that it was only accidental that it was placed in a way to imply it included the other limited rewards of the same value?

      I have a $30 tier now, so then would upgrading to this limited print I'd get the my current tier (Golden Inugami), plus the Signet ring (since I've jumped over $55 to get the print), and the other previous stuff I was already entitled to?

      OK so itsa $60 add-on. Upped! :D

    5. Ajm_pic2.small

      Creator American McGee on January 17, 2013

      @Aaron, it's not included in any tier, it's a separate item. To get both this item and a tier, pledge for this item (it's one of the $60 items) and then add the amount of the tier you want to the total. When the survey comes around after the Kickstarter ends, indicate at that time what the additional monies are for.

      Creator Aaron Lombard on January 17, 2013

      Which tier is the one that includes this Alice print?

      Creator Daniel Sato on January 17, 2013

      @christopher Remember, it is American's first kickstarter, so he's learning as he goes. I'm pretty sure a lot of this is him trying to respond to people who still, to this day, say there just aren't enough physical rewards. Please note also that he can't change the "+ all previous reward tiers" due to Kickstarter locking in the wording as soon as people pledge to that tier. We'll just have to use common sense and contribute a rational amount for what we want to receive.

    8. Missing_small

      Creator Christopher Scott on January 17, 2013

      I am sitting here reading about all of these additional tiers being added with stuff that I would really like but I've already pledged between 2 different accounts nearly $200, of which 1 tier still has not sold out.. Rather cranky that a lot of really great stuff is coming out after the fact rather than at launch to entice folks to pledge early. What incentive is there for me to pledge more money when technically the pledge does state "+ all previous reward tiers" which does include these limited tiers as it is a previous tier.

      @Andrew, Do the same as Ralph, we'll honor the early bird pricing.

      Creator Andrew on January 17, 2013

      What if I want one of these exclusive items but I'm already in one of the earlybird tiers?? :(

      Creator Ralph Mastrangelo on January 17, 2013

      @AM, I am in the Alice Art Book Tier (5 of 5), which I will not let go of.... lol :-)

      Thanks.

      @Diji, thanks! Fixed :) I blame the chicken.

      Just a heads up, the site link is http://www.angry-red.com/ not http://www-angry-red.com/ ;P

      Creator American McGee on January 17, 2013

      @Ralph, Assuming you're not at an exclusive tier already, you pledge at this tier and add the amount of your current tier to that pledge. Then, when the survey comes around after the Kickstarter, indicate what the extra monies are for.

      How do I add this to my Tier... I wish Kickstarter allowed multiple selections!! :-)
