50% and Climbing!
With a mere 10 days remaining before the end of our campaign, we've just passed the 50% mark. It's a solid milestone, but time is running short. Can we secure the remaining 50% before time runs out? At this point it's a question of exposure. Our existing backers can't (and shouldn't) be expected to make further contributions - we need more people, not more money per person! With that in mind, please get out those tweets, Facebook posts, Reddit threads, sandwich boards, SMS's, signal fires, Craigs List ads... hell, fire up your old Friendster or MySpace accounts! We'll take pledges from the past!
People of Linux! I've provided details on why your support is critical on this Reddit Thread. Please, try to understand, we want to bring the game to you but it's not a simple 'push of the button' to make that happen. If it were, I wouldn't be bugging you in the first place. As it is, I'm a huge fan of Linux, gaming on Linux and the platform as a means of separating ourselves from proprietary platforms, but the transition doesn't come cheap. Read that thread and drop further questions or responses there - I'll monitor it and do my best to respond quickly. Thanks!
For new rewards today (sorry!) we have what is easily *my* favorite piece of "Alice: Madness Returns" artwork, an illustration titled "Tears." This piece of concept artwork was done early in pre-production and it was hoped we'd be able to realize the idea contained within (moving/jumping through falling liquid), but we were never able to make it work fluidly (always with the puns). There were 500 limited editions of this (~300 remaining today), individually signed and numbered by artist Julie Dillon. The lithograph measures 18" x 24" and is on 100lb paper.
For those of you already pledged and helping to support the campaign - I want to once again say, "Thank You!" Your continued support is critical to our success. Remember, I'm here (with Ophelea) 24/7 to answer your questions and requests. Our tiers/rewards should have been presented better, but we're willing to do (just about) anything to make sure you are satisfied with what you're getting out of this. If in doubt, don't just back out... reach out!
