Update #20

Update #20: We did it!

Hey folks,

It’s impossible to truly express our gratitude to you all for helping us hit our initial goal — but give yourselves a pat on the back for being so phenomenal. You are the best backers in the (Over)world and we’re lucky to have you. You saved us an awful lot of stressful nail-biting by helping us hit 100% with several days to spare.

We have plenty of time left, so head to our main page and scroll down to refresh your memory of our Flex Goals. As we head into “Flex Goal Territory” (a frightening and uncharted realm full of danger, mystery, and whimsy) you’ll need to begin thinking about which are most important to you. Since every backer gets to vote on Flex Goals you should convince your like-minded friends to pledge if they haven’t already.

We’re happy to announce that we are launching PayPal support in the next few days. All rewards & tiers will be exactly the same as those on Kickstarter — so if you’ve been waiting for PayPal check out the rewards (and add-ons) and decide which one is best for you, we’ll let you know the moment it’s ready!

Thank you again.

Until next time Underlord,

-WFTO Team

      @ James McGrady : Richard is our only stretch goal. Once he is hit, we will begin working towards our first Flex Goal unlock. Also, if we do not hit Richard/Flex Goals before KS ends, funding will continue up until release in August. As we hit goals, everyone that has pledged in KS (and after) will be notified and able to vote. Ideally with Richard, we'd need to hit the goal sooner than later so that we can have the time to get his lines recorded and integrated into the game before August (or, there is a possibility of having some lines in the Bedrock Beta if we have him before then). :)

      @ Yiangos Stylianou : We will be having a Livestream event very soon. :)

      @ Everyone : Thank you! We're so excited to have made it, and we will not disappoint with WFTO. This has been a dream for everyone in the team over a decade, and we will ensure that this game will be the best it can be.

      Creator Robin Wemmenlöv on December 28, 2012

      If they raise enough money why shouldn't they bring in Richard? Even though that money could be spent on the games development it still feels like it would sort of a miss to not include him into the game. The other games most memorable assets was the voice of the narrator which really did bring out the dark humour of the game.

    26. Wfto_avatar.small

      Creator Nathan on December 28, 2012

      It just wouldn't be the same without Richard's narration not at all.
      and the £75,000 would be for studio costs and everything it wouldn't all be going to him.

    27. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator eXoScoriae on December 28, 2012

      While I would love Richard as the narration, I don't feel as though it is worth 75,000 pounds. If it takes that much money to hire him, then he is simply too expensive. That is 50% of the total cost for the entire game. That sort of money can be spent much more wisely.
