Update #29

New partnership announced soon, Paypal backing changing

Hello awesome backers!!!

Just wanted to let everyone know that change is imminent for Jack Houston! I am currently in talks with a distribution platform, and very soon the current Paypal backing options will change! Mainly, the lower tiers will go away and new pre-order options will take their place. I can't go into too many details yet, but I can tell you this is your last chance to get the ENTIRE game for $15, or the ENTIRE game + soundtrack for $30 via Paypal: http://www.warbirdgames.com/?page_id=545

Thanks, and I will be back soon with some very cool news...

      No exclusives, and no deal with Desura yet but I will definitely seek them out as well. This deal is aimed more at backer fulfillment and pre-sales.

      If the deal is not Desura and is not an exclusive, consider dropping them a line as they specialize in cross-platform distribution (been doing it longer than Humble Bundles, actually)

      I'd give a thumbs-up toward Desura.

      I wonder if the distribution platform could be Desura, who just got bought and has plans to start kicking things up a notch
